Who is Desk.com For?

Desk.com serves thousands of small business owners. The customer support software was built with the mission to give small and mid-size companies access to the same quality of customer support tools as their larger competitors.

The software also encourages your customers themselves to take on some of the work by designing the self-service support centers in a way that encourages customers to discover solutions to their queries without the need to contact an agent. The self-service support center features FAQ's and other documented resources to help your customers help themselves. These centers can also be customized to fit your brand by using CSS and HTML.

User Reviews

save your team time and give agents the context they need

Anica24th of February, 2014 17:24

If you want to blow your customer away, make sure that reps can easily access a customer’s entire lifecycle. Desk.com shows users complete profiles for customers that includes their contact info, history, and the identities of everyone who’s helped them in the past. On-hand histories save your team time and give agents the context they need to know if the customer’s complaint is a repeat issue, and how it was handled in the past

Boost Your Customer Satisfaction

John15th of March, 2013 11:51

Customer satisfaction first and foremost does the customer feel like they were heard. Did their voice matter? And this is the why Desk.com is so important that we are able to provide that level of service very quickly. The mobile application really allows us to be going all the time. It’s one of the most straightforward apps I’ve ever seen. And that’s how it should be. One of the things that we’re most excited about is taking the ability to have dialogue with our guests from a few to many. And what Desk.com really allows the company to do with confidence that it’s actually going to follow through with is, pass the ability to respond to guests to all of our general managers and all of our different restaurants. And, have a tracking mechanism to make sure that the guests are actually being taken care of. We could never have imagined doing that before.

Easy to reach and quick to respond

Todd15th of March, 2013 11:45

Using Desk.com has removed the limitations that used to keep us from doing what we wanted to do. We always wanted to provide service in a really special way and some of the things we wanted to do were really too difficult to do in older software. Desk.com enables us to interact with them to the fullest. When we first started working with Desk.com, one of the things we were most impressed with was the responsiveness and depth of interaction they had with us. Desk.com was always easy to reach and quick to respond with really great information. Desk.com gives us the reporting capabilities to really manage our reply statistics, so we can make sure we’re getting back to people in a really timely manner.

A delightful experience

Michael15th of March, 2013 11:41

Desk is by far one of the best tools I’ve worked with for multi-channel funneling all this chatter into one central repository; and managing a work load day to day. It’s excellent. You don’t drop a ball with Desk.com. We really needed something to launch cost effectively, fast, and easy. And, Desk absolutely fit the bill. We were able to get up and running within 48 hours. Easy experience. A delightful experience. It’s been a God-send.

Smart Inbox for Agents

Manage and assign cases in Desk.com

You can use the Support Case page to handle individual customer requests. Quick responses can be issued using macros. You can then build cases for each customer and issue you work on. These cases will be archived and can be clicked to view their complete information. You can also record and review the customer’s complete interaction history within the case itself.

When a query is too complex for a junior-level agent to resolve on his or her own, that case can be directed to a more senior agent. Desk.com offers a number of case management features to aid agents with their work. They are tools to continuously track the status of cases as well as to set set priority levels, ensuring issues are resolved in order of importance.
