Zendesk vs Groove

Groove is a simple Zendesk alternative.
Here's why you should consider switching…

Hi there.

Thinking of making the switch to Groove or one of the other Zendesk competitors?

We want to make the decision as easy as possible, so we’ve put together some info that’ll help you decide which option is best for you.

Below, you'll find information to help you compare Groove and Zendesk, including features, customer experiences, pricing and thoughts from current Groove customers who have made the switch.

We hope this helps…

1. Groove is easier than Zendesk

Tired of having to struggle your way through clunky and complex Zendesk user guides, trainings, implementation plans, dashboards, macros, triggers and all sorts of features you never use?

With Groove, you won’t have to. All you see when you log in is your simple inbox:

Your Groove inbox updates in real-time, so you don't have to keep refreshing to see new emails.

You’ll get awesome core features like simple automation, canned replies and reporting, without having to navigate a maze of features you don’t need.

And if you ever want to enhance Groove beyond the core Shared Inbox, you can do that with over 25+ integrations, baked right into Groove.

2. Groove is more personal for your customers

You love your customers.

And Groove makes it easy to show it.

Your customers will never have to go through a login portal to get help, or try to dig through their email for a ticket number.

Groove looks and feels exactly like email to your customers:

No corporate-looking templates, and no annoying auto-responses clogging up their inbox every time they send a reply to one of your emails.

Just the simple, personal experience of regular email.

3. Groove is built for small teams

Complicated help desks slow support agents down and add hours of wasted time to their month.

Multiply that by two, three, four or more agents, and that’s a lot of lost productivity.

As a small business, we understand how devastating that can be.

That’s why we stripped out the more complicated edge-case features of Zendesk, and kept only the most important time-saving collaboration tools:

Help your customers, together.

Assign conversations to other team members or groups. Everyone knows which conversations they’re responsible for, so nothing slips through the cracks.

Collaborate behind the scenes.

Add internal notes that only you and your team can see. Ask questions, make suggestions, or review messages from new team members before they’re sent.

4. 24/7 support, even when you not around

Groove’s Knowledge Base makes it easy for your team to save time by offering 24/7 self-help to your customers, too.

5. Groove is more affordable

We believe that small business software should be affordable for small businesses.

If that sounds obvious, well, somebody should let Zendesk know. Here’s a Groove vs. Zendesk comparison chart, using the Zendesk “Plus” pricing plan, which you would need in order to get all of the functionality that’s already included in Groove’s straightforward price:

1 agent 3 agents 5 agents 10 agents
Groove $19/month $57/month $95/month $190/month
Zendesk $69/month $207/month $345/month $690/month
Annual Savings $600/year $1,800/year $3,000/year $6,000/year
