Recurly is a subscription management service that is designed to provide a variety of billing models to its users - per month, per usage, etc., - and then process recurring charges through those models. Recurly can use data gathered from subscriptions to generate analytics for a company. It also supports integrations with other sales management tools. These can provide users with a more seamless experience and deeper analytic data.
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.

Recurly's End Points
Track data about the status of a customer’s subscription - recurring, new, canceled, etc., - and which plans they are subscribing to. This data can help demonstrate the success or failure of various subscription models and show the most popular time periods to subscribe.
Retrieve data about any purchase or payment processed through Recurly, including the amount of the transaction, customer contact information and the status of the transaction i.e.,whether it is declined, voided, or successful. This data can then be used to provide analytics about the actual revenue being generated by your company.
Gather all of the information related to an invoice that has been sent to a customer, including charges, refunds, credits and discounts. This field also includes the payment history for invoices, which can be used to track trends and help with predictive analysis.
Set up and detail the various plans that your subscriptions use. This field includes data about the plans - how much they costs, what the billing rates are, etc., - and also provides customer data about who is using what plans. This can assist in scoring leads and segmenting your customers by lifecycle stage.
Store all of your data about a customer’s account, including contact information and billing history. You can also use this to track a customer’s current and historical subscription data, which can provide you with insights into your general business performance and help you determine which subscription plans are most profitable.
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.
