Pros

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.
This was a much appreciated improvement. A great feature is that you can integrated with the big social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook to allow CC to responde quite quickly.
Overall I’m extremely satisfied with Zendesk, It has a lot of great features that helps us provide a great customer support service which is important for a successful business.

Pros

In addition to the stellar service, this software is easy to use, beautifully designed, and thoughtfully created. Loving the software you (and 400+ others) use on a regular basis is important.
The Support I received from Forumbee was great. Our Account Manager was with us for the whole journey and I appreciated their willingness to help and answer any questions we had.
We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Forumbee, from the ease of use and implementation to the excellent customer service.

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

It can be a little difficult to keep track of all of the users. I feel it can visually become a little cluttered and disorganized.
The largest downside to ForumBee is their unwillingness to connect on the phone.
For example, text formatting transferred from another document is not always retained. Additionally, the more our community/posts grow, the more difficult it becomes to search with accuracy.
