Pros

Ticket handling is great, and the way everything links together is amazing. The ability to search across the whole platform (documentation, tickets, users) all at once, is fantastic.
It's a very easy to use with very good features that really help make the job much easier. I really learned a lot thanks to it, becaus zendesk helps me know my applicacion even better.
The experience with Zendesk is very good, it has helped me to better organize the incidents, give them priority and also be able to obtain very good statistics to analyze the work of the team.

Pros

Easy to plug into your app, and I like that it’s supporting attach screenshots which are very important for CRM.
Very importantly too, I love the quality of support offered my team by the Helpshift customer service desk.
The platform is easy to use and navigate but wish we had more analytics and better stats for tracking individual and team performance.

Cons

I dislike that unless you are communicating within the actual Zendesk software with your admin/technical support team, it comes through as a confusing email thread that is hard to follow.
Its routing function is slow, and it is not automatable. Another problem is (ironically) your tool for managing and tracking problems, it's slow.
I haven't found any problem with this app at the moment. I think it fits our needs at the moment, I will update my review if I ever find a problem.

Cons

Customer service was terrible. The bait & switch pricing.
For example, deep linking started working after removing Helpshift. So the SDK is doing some crazy stuff under the hood.
It could also be possible that my current company dont feel those features or functionality as neccessary but it really sucks big time.

Helpshift

Good platfom to reply Mobile app support tickets, but it lacks features.

Reviewed 2 years ago

It does the basic job of getting a ticket and responding, splitting incoming tickets into queues, even classifying it with tags, but don't expect a fully developed solution like Zendesk. Helpshift is just no there yet.

Pros

The feature so far is the cod you can inject in your app to query the remote mobile device hardware and software spec that helps a lot when troubleshooting tickets received.

Cons

it totally lacks a module do some BI number crunching providing basic information like, how much time an agent spent on a ticket ? What's the agent RPH ? there are no statistics at all to help managers to improve the service quality.
