Front est la boîte de réception partagée pour les équipes qui regroupe toutes les communications d'entreprise au sein d'une plateforme collaborative unique. Les équipes de support client, ventes, opérations, informatique et marketing peuvent gérer le [email protected], [email protected] et d'autres adresses e-mail de groupe, Facebook, Twitter, chat et SMS en un seul endroit, et répondre sans basculer entre plusieurs outils.
Conçu pour la collaboration d'équipe : les e-mails et les messages de la boîte de réception partagée peuvent être attribués à des coéquipiers pour indiquer clairement qui est responsable de la réponse et la détection des collisions empêche plusieurs réponses au même message. Possibilité de spécifier directement les coéquipiers pour partager et discuter des messages et des brouillons avant d'envoyer une réponse à un client. Les modèles d'e-mail permettent de répondre rapidement aux questions courantes.
Améliore la productivité de l'équipe : Front fonctionne comme un client de messagerie, mais il est plus puissant que Gmail ou Outlook. Des fonctionnalités telles que les commentaires internes, les rappels de suivi, les confirmations de lecture, les publipostages, les séquences d'e-mail et les réponses prédéfinies permettent de répondre 2-3 fois plus rapidement aux clients. Les applications mobiles sur iOS et Android sont disponibles pour répondre et trier en déplacement. Les analyses complètes de Front affichent le temps de réponse, le volume des messages et bien d'autres critères de mesure de la productivité.
S'intègre à toutes les applications : Front fonctionne avec de nombreux autres logiciels : Salesforce, Slack, Trello, GitHub, Intercom, Asana, etc., ce qui permet d'accéder et de synchroniser ces informations dans Front. Des intégrations personnalisées pour des besoins spécifiques peuvent être développées en utilisant l'API.

The overall look of Front is simple, which is nice.
The snooze function on emails.
The support staff were friendly and quick to answer.
My company switched my team over to Front after a couple people who shared an inbox had issues with managing it. I didn't have a shared inbox, but struggled with the lack of functionality for just personal inboxes.
There are so many missed functionalities to Front it made my job incredibly inefficient. I found myself spending more time doing my job which consists of heavy emailing because of Front problems.
1. No calendar. Cannot make appointments, set up meetings, etc.
2. Unable to edit messages in a previous thread. Say someone sends you a list of questions. You cannot just answer next to their list in the previous email and say "see below."
3. Archiving messages... when we first switched to Front, the management team used it for a few weeks to test it. When the team was instructed to switch within the next couple weeks, and BOOM thousands of emails that Front could not autoarchive. I had about 10 emails in Outlook during the switch. The front inbox had accumulated thousands over the course of the management test period. Front could only auto archive shared inboxes, not personal. I had to spend 20 minutes selecting 3000 emails to auto archive since it didn't sync correctly with Outlook.
4. Saving emails... you can't. You only have the option to send a link of the email which only works for those that also used front.
5. You cannot edit pasted tables in front, as far as formatting goes. No deletion of columns or making rows smaller.
6. No red flags or categorizing. Often I'd keep emails in Outlook and red flag them to remind myself to check on it before I leave. No flagging in Outlook. This is replaced by snoozing in Front to make it reappear later, but I do miss the flag option.
7. You archive something in someone else's inbox that they share with you... it archives in their inbox, too.
8. No options to make folders. You want to move emails to a folder to refer to later? You cannot.
I could go on and on and ended up emailing a list of 18 problems after using Front for the first 3 months to management who sent to Front support. The responses were basically they hope to rollout that feature one day. Which obviously doesn't help now.
We love using this for syncing with Pipedrive - the implementation was easy. The powerful autoresponders are helpful as well. On any given day, we can have a different auto responder, which is great because we're always in a dedicated project on Wednesdays and out of office on Fridays. It's also a bonus that send later is active right out of the box - so when I'm working on emails after my kids are in bed they show up to my clients as sent at 7am the next morning. Set up wasn't too bad since I had already used Support Bee previously. The mobile app is solid as well, though my Android phone tells me it takes a lot of battery power. I wish it was listed as a native email provider on Andoid phones - so right now if I click on a email link in my Pipedrive App, I can't have it open in Front. Front is better than Pipedrive for sending emails since I can drop screenshots inline in emails in Front - something we do on a daily basis. I recommended this to a client who initially liked the idea that it connected with Shopify, showing order information beside each email (see cons for rest of the story). It's normal email stuff works just fine as well - removing formatting, adding bullets, bold, etc all work as expected. As an admin, I like having the ability to make sure my team is keeping on top of shared emails. Additionally, when a teammate needs some help on a message, they can share it with me to help advise them.
Buyer beware on the TOS regarding refunds. I set this up for a client and got them paid up as an annual client with several users. However, it wasn't a good fit for them. I was not pleased to find out Front does not offer pro-rated refunds, which is costing my client a lot of money and jeopardizing my relationship with them. Customer services was unsympathetic. For this reason I can't recommend Front anymore. If a user signs up with an annual plan, they will at some point be losing money, not saving it - unless they cancel on the anniversary of when they started. Just because it's in the TOS doesn't mean it's the right thing to do: Front is one of the companies that needs to learn this.
Ability to respond to and manage emails as a team.
I can share and comment on threads with the rest of my team. As an admin, I also have granular control over users' access permissions to email inboxes.
The disregard the little details over and over again in favor of new updates. The app (iOS especially) makes me wait a lot of times when it shouldn't, making it feel slow in stark contrast to other mail apps. Things don't load instantly. Contacts aren't cached. Their UI designers blatantly disregard Android / iOS / Mac / web design conventions (which are there for a reason) in favor of their own convoluted system. Their release notes are boring and they make me update my app even when it's perfectly usable (this condescending attitude is particularly annoying). Many of these small glitches have actually led to catastrophic disasters within my team like unwittingly sending followup emails ("sequences") to 200+ recipients. My advice to them: focus on stabilizing your current, buggy product rather than trying to introduce a million features that don't work 100%.
Major time savings and better organization is the key benefit we get as well as being able to build our own custom plugins.
Front allows teams to work in a more organized flow with incoming emails. One of the ways we have been able to utilize Front has been to group all emails for specific teams into Team inboxes and then team members can take emails out of the queue and work to bring the box to zero. This has saved us a lot of time from trying to organize emails in outlook.
The main selling feature for us however was the ability to create a custom plugin in the panel on the right as well as pull data from the current conversation from the Front API that is well built. This allows us to customize our flow.
Front also has several default integrations some more useful than others. They seem to be growing at a large pace so you can expect to see major enhancements with the product in the future.
The price can be a little high per user and the Enterprise version doesn't seem to offer the kinds of benefits you would want to see for such a large price jump. There also seem to be some features on enterprise that feel like they should be one tier down like user roles and authorization.
My company uses Front in a way that it was not created. I say this because the company accommodated our use rather than letting us go. Because of this allowance, they have made our day to day use of hundreds of emails efficient and effective. We are able to assign incoming email, share with unlimited employees and a number of integrations keeps the app connected to our CRM and other integral apps. Folders allow us to keep a very organized view of our incoming mail stream with employees that are offsite or in different countries.
The number one reason for choosing Front was their phone app. Beautifully designed and easy enough to use by my least technical employee with ease. Compatible with IOS and Android. There are regualr upgrades so they are a growing and innovative group of people.
Their willingness to work with us and even take suggestions for upgrades was a deciding factor to stick with Front.
Easy to use, scalable to any size company and has a fantastic phone app.
No issues so far.
