Front app vs. Helpmonks: Features compared

Front calls itself a customer communication solution, however for being a communication platform it solely offers a shared inbox feature. It lacks other collaboration features, CRM capabilities, and tools to increase sales like email sequences and email marketing.

You are out of luck if you are looking for a Knowledge base or other tools to enhance the customer experience. For that, you need to use external tools which adds additional cost to the already steep price of Front.
