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.
Pendo is a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform that integrates your application and webpage usage analytics with feedback, guidance, and communication from end-users. The solution empowers you to understand the way customers are using your product, how they feel about it, and what their experiences are like without overburdening your engineering team. Pendo provides your development team with the insights they need to dramatically improve applications, websites, and user experiences. The platform also keeps your customers informed about product enhancements and key developments as you release them.

Intercom's End Points
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.
