Sign up feature is not working

Benjamin Seeman, Technology Director at Herscher Community Unit School District #214th of August 22:46

I'm going to give it 4 stars because I couldn't give it 1 or 2. The sign up feature hasn't been working correctly since I bought it. This is huge. I also submitted a ticket for them to fix it. Their usual response is they will look into it and they close the ticket out.

Very Well Thought Through

Michael16th of August, 2013 13:25

FreshDesk is one of the most user friendly, easy to administer/program helpdesk ticketing systems we've ever used. I've personally run a number of different IT organizations in my career and by far, this takes advantage of the best technologies and user experience interfaces to present a -usable- and full featured service to clients and engineers.

Freshdesk Makes Support Easy

Cameron Ring4th of April, 2013 19:18

As a small business, we have lots of things to worry about. As our business grew and as we got busier, we needed something to help us manage our customer support needs. Freshdesk was really easy to start using and the price was right. Once we started using it, we were hooked!

Nice surprise :-)

Jaroslav Jancik, ZAT, CZ4th of March, 2013 07:13

We were in process of implementing of IT support outsourcing at the end of last year. One task was not finished - choosing of Help Desk system. After many faults we found the FreshDesk - cloud help desk in Czech localization. It has everything we need: ticket creating by mail, knowledgebase, user feedback, automatical rules and scenarios, and - last but not least - very good and fast support nad low price. We choose it and after e few month we are still happy! (Meanwhile we clarified the Czech localization.)
