Beautiful seamless integration with Zendesk. On-board in for the agents was equally easy.

In general there is no negative point since they comply with what they promise. What I can comment is that I find it a bit expensive.

Teckst was extremely easy to set up, took almost no time at all to get up and running.

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Ease of use. Integrates with out system. Teckst sends us reports as needed so we can track our performance. Have never had any major issues.

Cons

Would like more robust reporting features. And I guess anything could be cheaper but no complaints from our team.

Great product, easy integration, exceptional customer service

Reviewed 4 years ago

Great integration. Great SMS and FBM support solutions. Exceptional customer service.

Pros

Teckst integrates extremely well into our Zendesk account. What originally drew me to Teckst's SMS solution versus others we looked at is that it really speaks to the hybrid nature of text support as a channel. What makes SMS so convenient for support is that customers can either respond right away like a chat or respond later at their convenience like an email inbox. Teckst speaks to each by offering...

Teckst has been super responsive to our needs and always keeps us updated on the latest releases.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Their customer service has been really awesome. They are also quick to get us updated on the new features and overall any transitions have been painless. Super easy to work with them!

Cons

We've been using them for a while now and it's taken a little longer than expected for them to add additional features that are becoming more common in the SMS world. But I do think they've started to ramp up lately.

Working with Teckst over the past two years has been great! Helpful staff, robust platform.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Our business is designed to save time for busy people, so fast service is really important. Our customers love texting and Teckst allowed us to implement this easily. We explored other messaging solutions, but Teckst expressed the most excitement about growing with us and helping us innovate as our business scaled. The account management team was always super responsive and helped us decide the best way to launch SMS with our customers. The fact that it is seamlessly integrated with our Desk.com account allowed us to train our team of agents quickly and the learning curve was minimal. That was key to our success here.

Cons

Desk.com doesn't support emoji usage, so for our first ~6 months of Teckst usage we weren't able to send customers emojis. Teckst ended up creating a workaround that allowed emoji usage on Desk, which was great for us. Our customers are big emoji users, so we saw an increase in CSAT once we started incorporating them in our messaging.

If you need an SMS provider, Teckst isgood

Reviewed 4 years ago

We provide a faster support channel that positions us where our customers are: on their phone.

Pros

The implementation is straightforward with Teckst providing a white-glove service. Integrating Teckst with a CRM (we were on Desk and now on ServiceCloud) allows for an agent to quickly learn how to handle SMS cases since they're already familiar with the case paradigm. The Teckst platform is fast and responsive, meaning that there is little latency between inbound and outbound texts through the CRM. The use of emojis is incredibly impactful which allows us to provide empathetic service at scale.

Cons

Nothing major to mention! It would be great to have an admin dashboard so we could self-service, but I hear that is in the works.

Great product; feature-rich yet easy for agents to learn to use, all backed by first-rate support.

Reviewed 4 years ago

On it's initial small-scale test for confirming pre-scheduled calls to customers, we saw an 8.5% increase in decision-maker reach rates on those scheduled calls, and a 11.5% increase in sales conversion when decision makers were reached. The combined 22% lift in sales was a clear winner, and we are now looking to increase the automated use cases to include order confirmation, delivery confirmation, and more.

Pros

All conversations are captured verbatim with auto-generated messages clearly differentiated from customer incoming texts and also agent outbound texts. That feature is vital for agent training, tracking customer history, spotting trends, First Call Resolution, and compliance-related issues.

Cons

A few "shortcuts" (for instances, inserting a time and date for a scheduled callback from the dialer platform) were custom-developed and slightly klugy (requiring agents to insert a "carat", then a short code). Later iterations continued to improve!

It works, and that's what matters. Great CX team as well.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Although it lacks a self-service dashboard, their CX team makes it so easy to get things done/updated/changed with a simple email. It works quietly and (from where I sit) seamlessly. Whatever they're doing to make this happen, two thumbs up!

Cons

There is no self-service dashboard for admin actions. Actions/triggers I expected to be in place (like auto-responders) sometimes were not firing.

Our experience with Teckst has been amazing!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

It has been really easy to use. I also feel like a valued customer with Teckts. Anytime I have any questions I can get a response to my emails in less than 10 minutes. They have been amazing to work with.

Cons

I would love Teckst to continue to develop more stats on texts to see how well it is performing from a company standpoint. For example response time, break it down by busy times, etc. However, with that said they have enough information for me to be satisfied at this point.

Easy set-up, simple to use, low cost, great customer support.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The customer support is excellent. We use the Zendesk integration, which made for the seamless addition of sms as a support channel to our existing support workflow.

Cons

Would be nice to be able to change automatic responses on our own, but customer support is more than helpful so its not a deal breaker.

Product was easy to setup with great customer support. I enjoyed working with the Teckst team.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The most valuable feature was the simple integration with our CRM system (desk.com). The integration allowed us to switch between texting and emailing our customers.

Cons

Cost of entry level offering. There was great value in the offering, but it was more than what we needed for our use case.

Pros

I loved how easy it was for my agents to use, its ability to integrate into all of my team's tools, and the hands on fantastic customer service I always received.

Great team to work with. The product is also good and is moving in a good direction.

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The support of the product is really good. The team that we have to help us with our needs has been great. Ease of use is really nice as well, it is easy to understand, implement and train on.

Cons

There is still a lot of room for the product to grow. They are allowing for texting within salesforce and trying to mimic that is a difficult task. There are some bugs in the product but that is the case with any new growing product.

Increased user immersion and longer use times of our products.

The tool is intuitive and provides our customers with real-time mobile support in ways that are more elegant than mobile chat widgets.

Great way to help our customers quickly!

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Since adding Teckst to our customer communication plan, we've seen an increase in our response rate. Customers appear more than happy to have a quick chat via texting, as opposed to an email chain or talking on the phone. The integration into our current ticketing system has been great and allowed our team to seamlessly talk with our customers. In addition, the support provided by their team has been beyond accommodating and helpful and they are very open and receptive to all of our feedback.

Cons

We have been waiting for the feature release to send multiple messages at the same time. This feature has just become available, and we look forward to trying this out.

Easy to implement - works seamlessly

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

Plug and play - integrates easily into our customer service platform (Zendesk) and agents can respond to a text in the same fashion as they would any other medium. Our customers really like it as well.

Cons

At low volumes, the per unit price can be a bit pricey given their pricing model. However, will scale up nicely.

Excellent to organize our support team

Reviewed 3 years ago

Teckst allows us to create automatic responses and create a workflow that fits our dynamics. Thanks to this tool we have been able to organize our customer support team in an intuitive way. I love that we can receive tickets via SMS. It is a tool that complements very well with the service we offer.

Pros

Create customer tickets in a fast way. It also makes it very easy for customers to create tickets via SMS. You can also receive tickets via facebook, whatsapp and other messaging services.

Cons

In general there is no negative point since they comply with what they promise. What I can comment is that I find it a bit expensive. Perhaps for the same price they could increase the number of agents or offer some additional benefit.

Quick and easy to set up and utilize

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The functionality of the software with any/all Toll-frees to provide a text response to existing numbers. This has allowed us to create a contact base on an existing telco framework

Cons

Would like a more robust back end implementation - something that allows customers to do some of the customization and maintenance themselves.
