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

The clear sections and adaptability of the platform is really amazing. Its hopeful that its shortcomings will be taken care of in the near-future releases.
Having the ease of creating a component and being able to reuse it everywhere in your environment is a great feeling.
I really like lightning, it's a big of a learning curve but the UI improvements are fantastic.

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

Once I was forced to use lighting and got used to it. I don't know why I was punishing myself using the other view.
Additional features can be pricey, customer service is terrible, they'll charge you for everything additional.
No flaws compared to normal Salesforce, but I assume the higher price is the reason that my current company isn't using it so maybe it is overpriced.

Salesforce App Cloud

Powerful Once You Learn How to Use It (But Expensive)

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Salesforce is the backbone of our company. It is tied into everything and used by every team. It is incredibly customizable and it seems they have a way to do almost anything you need. We use it for Sales, Support, Marketing, and product feature usage. We have it hooked into other apps and other saas products. This is the product that will scale with your business and can support a company at any stage of growth. There are a ton of integrations out of the box (on their salesforce exchange) and their APIs allow savvy developers to build custom integrations that aren't available.

Cons

When the company initially implemented it, they tried to "wing it" and it was a complete mess. You really need someone who knows what they are doing to setup, administer, and maintain the software. It is also expensive. We got grandfathered into some great pricing, but if we weren't, we're not sure we would be able to continue to use SFDC as we grow. SFDC also loves to gobble up other apps and...
