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.

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.

Zendesk

Good for single teams, not so for multiple

Reviewed 3 years ago

Zendesk is almost too big that they do not seem to care about acquiring new users. On several occasions, when trying to get a demo, the company was very blase and not responsive.

Pros

Zendesk is a solid offering for large single teams under a single brand name. It has a lot of customizations, macros, reporting, and a plethora of neat help forum features on top of it.

Cons

I found that for my needs of managing multiple brands, Zendesk was not a solution since there was difficulty in being able to customize tickets to respond to them via email. This became a limiting factor and caused me to work with a competitor.

Zendesk - There are better solutions.

Reviewed 3 years ago

Zendesk is our Customer Service management platform. Would never recommend it as a solution!

Pros

Like the range of apps & integrations they have, this allows users to connect different tools together for tracking & reporting.

Cons

Zendesk is a robust & confusing customer service platform. The implementation is difficult & time consuming. Reporting is incredibly difficult to customize. It's too easy to use Zendesk in a silo and it ends up being a real barrier to seeing a full view of customer interactions with your company. Feels like Zendesk acquired a bunch of companies (like Zopim) and have struggled to integrate these within their core product.

Zendesk

Easy to use and very helpful staff.

Reviewed 4 years ago

Worked with the Zendesk staff on several occasions to do a trial run of Zendesk. Simple to set up and the staff was very helpful. It seemed that Zendesk was more than capable of what we needed. The help videos were well made and entertaining as well! In the long run, our company acquired another company who already had a system set up and management decided to stick with what they already had in place.

Pros

Help information was plentiful between the self help videos, forums, and staff that was easy to reach (not to mention how simple the software was to use).

Cons

Some of the conditional formatting for the menus was not yet available that would have been ideal for setting up the tickets but from what I understood, it was a planned feature in the future.
