Top reasons top brands choose Khoros over LivePerson

Whether you’re looking for digital customer service, social media management, or an online community solution, there are overarching reasons brands choose Khoros.


#1 Our solution was built for asynchronous digital customer service from the start, not synchronous or session-based

  • We pioneered asynchronous workflows for digital customer service and hold 6 patents for our intelligent response engine.
  • Our asynchronous capabilities have been proven and battle-tested for 10+ years, and we’ve been enabling reliable, meaningful brand to consumer interactions for hundreds of global brands ever since.

Khoros Care has been very beneficial in improving efficiency in responding to guests and staying organized among various teams that work together to respond to consumers.”

#2 We offer deep operational analytics for asynchronous engagement that is actually tracked near real-time, not delayed time

  • Only Khoros Care combines deep operational analytics with traditional contact center metrics and customer experience data to improve productivity and forecast accuracy.
  • Our analytics capabilities allow for deep insights and real-time workforce utilization by tracking granular agent activities and states across channels, teams, and regions.
  • Khoros Care’s analytics engine is designed to process high volumes of data with minimal latency (15 seconds), while other vendors typically can only achieve 1 hour latency, at best.

“Thanks to Khoros Care, we were able to immediately analyze customer feedback for insights and prioritize the incoming posts to give us an overview of how each segment was talking about the incident. Our direct connection to customers allowed us to check whether the problems could be resolved or not.”

#3 Khoros is easy to configure and not reliant on expensive, time-consuming custom development

  • There’s beauty in creating something entirely unique, but for brands who can’t miss any opportunities to engage, this is not a scalable solution and introduces too much risk and reliance on internal IT teams and/or the vendor’s services team.
  • We chose the more reliable path of building a productized but configurable solution that is based on years of expertise in knowing what works, guarantees uptime, and makes it easy for customers to instantly take advantage of enhancements we roll out.
“The system is easy to configure and use. The UX is very intuitive and it was easy for our social care agents to utilize and easy for our team to configure. The implementation and training team was awesome and the continued support we have received has been equally as good.”

  • Stay in lockstep with your customers and prospects, while building a leading digital engagement strategy for your brand, with a complete solution focused on digital engagement.
