Pros

Overall experience has been good. Very happy for the product and how it helps us stay organized with the tickets we have coming in.
I love that its very user friendly to use ad easy to manage tasks. I love the interface make it easy to get tickets handled and provide the best customer service for my job.
We ended up switching to a free service which better fit our needs. All in all it was a pleasant experience and we used it for 3 years to manage the chat on our site.

Pros

Getting on the SF cloud can be a wonderful thing and a great way to create value for your clients. The ecosystem is really powerful and can be a great way to add sales.
They truly have gotten the tools down for what is needed to provide excellent communication with your community within your company & continues to only improve on that.
This program is excellent for those who frequently excel to manage accounts. It's also great that the program exports to excel sheets.

Cons

Tremendously disappointing for a company that sells ticketing software to have such a poor interaction when it comes to using it.
Non-Existent & TERRIBLE Customer Service. You are just a number to them.
If you ever need support from Zendesk then it is horrible.

Cons

I've used it when it's been opened up for a LOT of users. When this happens, a lot of the details and information is lost along the way.
The cost and bloatedness were the worst aspects for me.
Segmenting off articles between an internal and external is difficult to impossible.
