We moved from Intercom to Crisp this April because the price-value ratio of Intercom was not satisfying anymore.

We paid ~140eur for the very basic features of Intercom - Messages Essential and Inbox Essential. This is enough for a chat and API access, but that's all. The price would go up as mkdev grows.

Now there are some features we really would love to have: like a Help Center and Bots, for example. All various advanced routing of messages. Or any other features that Intercom actually has, but sells them separately.

Even though it's very hard to properly calculate the price by looking at Pricing page of Intercom, my guess is that with simple Answer bot and Help Center integration our bill for Intercom could easily double or triple.

After doing a bit of research and looking for a better price-value ration we found Crisp.

Crisp gives us the same Chat features we had from Intercom, but then it adds really cool bot builder, various marketing automation utilities, Help Center that supports multiple languages already today (feature still missing in Intercom) - https://help.mkdev.me/en/, fancy MagicBrowse and LiveAssist, direct integration with Telegram and many more. Price? 95eur for all the features and unlimited operators. And no dependency on number of active users (Crisp founders directly say that charging for active users is bullshit and I can only agree with them).

We've been using Crisp not for too long and even though it's been pretty smooth so far - from integrating with our backend systems to creating a Help Center from scratch - it might be a bit too early to do any conclusions. mkdev co-founder Leo has things to say about the UX of Crisp and I am not really satisfied with Crisp's mobile app. But this is something to get used to, or something that will be improved by Crisp over time. And some aspects of Crisp UX/UI are much nicer than Intercom - for example, custom fields on clients are on very top, so we can quickly jump to admin page of a client in mkdev.me. In Intercom we had to do two clicks and scroll a lot to find this link.

To sum it up, if you are looking for a change from Intercom, give Crisp a try. It's way cheaper and doesn't have any major downsides if you are used to Intercom.

Crisp is a realtime chat widget that, unlike its competitors, does not demand your leg and kidney to deliver a decent service.

It works great for zerotoherojs.com and I recommend anyone if they have a similar need.

Even their free tier is more than enough for the majority of the use cases that you can think of. Crisp
