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

The ability to have the customer as the focus and centralized around them is fantastic, it is the best system for customer support that I have used in 20 years.
Love how easy it is to help the customer in all forms of communication, everything being in one 🏼 place is beyond helpful. Not having to click through tabs is a life saver.
I loved the ability to communicate with our customers with ease. It also easy to organize your inbox which is convenient.

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 dislike when you are trying to merge a call you have to press the hang-up button then it gives you the option to merge.
Reporting, it's hard to generate the per-hour reporting and small screen for writing an email.
Looking at a white screen all day is hard on the eyes.

Zendesk Suite

The cheapest option but it “works”

Reviewed 2 years ago

Abysmal

Pros

This is a great choice if you can’t afford something like gladly and that it is your only other choice. Customer service support is nonexistent. The software constantly is glitchy and doesn’t work.

Cons

Probably the customer service support which is condescending when it does get back to you and then runs you around for weeks until it winds up blaming you for something that their software did. While the whole time never giving you any solution

Overall very good compared to using Zendesk. This is better than Zendesk and makes the reps jobs easier and faster. You are on the right track but if you could fast track into incorporating some great features of Zendesk into your solid product- I think you would get more Zendesk clients

Pros

Having all members interaction in 1 thread is heaven sent! no need to find previous tickets/conversations of the member which will eat up precious time

Cons

for chat- one cannot tell if the member left the chat already. If this was available then one can send the idle spiels or a follow up email rather than waiting. quickly pasting screenshots in the chat box or SMS box or email rather than just attaching would make your product way better. These 2 features are what I miss the most in Zendesk
