We’re such big fans of the platform here at DataHero that we use Intercom ourselves to handle the customer facing side of our business. It has allowed us to improve our direct relationships with our customers and ensure that our support team is more readily available to provide the highest levels of customer support.

As power users of the platform, it became obvious to us that finding deeper Intercom analytics and support team reporting would be a natural requirement for us to fully transition our support team efforts to this platform. It’s one of the reasons why chose to integrate directly with Intercom and build a data connector, letting any business to analyze their Intercom results quickly and easily.
