Intercom is a powerful set of tools for better managing your company’s customer support system. It includes a help center with a feedback system, which you can use to focus future articles on the growing needs of your customers, and it also provides a robust conversation system that allows you to assign support teams to customers based on specific criteria (about the customer or discussion topic), rather than just based on availability. Intercom is designed to create a more effective customer support network by specifically tracking and targeting your customers’ needs.
Buffer is a web and mobile-based platform that allows you to manage all of your company's social media activities from a single place.

Track the content of conversations and who is involved in them. This can be used to generate data about which topics customers are most concerned with so that you can further focus your support efforts accordingly.
Sort specific groups of users and companies that you are communicating with by creating an easily searchable tag that permeates all of your intercom databases, and you can use that tag to integrate other data about those groups throughout intercom.
Collect valuable customer data for your CRM, including basic contact info such as name, email address, and phone number but also more specific data, such as when they signed up, last signed in, and the tags associated with them.
Track the progress of your business relationship with companies (including a list of their users). Use that data to monitor how well your support network is meeting a company’s needs and how much of your overall revenue comes from each of the companies that are interacting with your business via intercom.
Automatically categorize users based on set criteria. Then Intercom can assign support teams based on that criteria, which allows you to more easily match customers with the support team members that can best assist them.
Buffer's social media publishing tools allow you to tailor and perfect your posts to fit the nuances of each social network your company uses. Use the platform to design drafts of your posts, collaborate with team members, finetune your strategy, and plan the timing of each post for maximum effectiveness — all from a single platform that gives you a bird's-eye view of your content-lineup.
Buffer's platform enhances business-to-customer interactions by expanding your ability to immediately respond to social media conversations, resolve customer problems, and collaborate with the right team members to create a better, more interactive experience between your audience and brand. With Buffer's shared team inbox, you can interact with customers on a one-on-one basis across all your social media platforms — be it Facebook, Twitter, or Instragam — from a single interface. Buffer also includes 'collision detection' features — that show which team members are viewing a conversation to prevent duplicate responses — and the ability to leave notes for others who might respond to the conversation later.
Buffer tracks data pertaining to all of your team's social media interactions — then uses this information to create performance reports that will help you improve customer engagement, grow your audience, and boost sales. With data on all of your social media platforms visible from a single, interactive analytics dashboard, everyone on your team has access to the information, metrics, and insights they need. Drill into statistics on individual posts and zoom out for general information. You can also customize reports to show specific team members exactly what they need to see.
