Pros

Zoho Desk is a great addition to the Zoho Suite of products. We appreciate the great value offers in the entire suite.
You can customize anything you would like to match your platform's needs. It follows all relevant customer behavior ,prior to interactions , and it helps us anticipate their needs better.
I like that this helpdesk solution is flexible enough to allow for various usage - in my case we used it to field digital marketing and creative requests.

Pros

The best thing about it is that it's free, and for a free chat, its a great experience - you're not going to find a better option.
The product is amazing and is even more so for its price tag - it’s offered free and the features are power packed to help me manage the stream of queries from my customers.
Take was helpful to me, considering the fact that it was available for free, since I was trying out lots of options then. I was happy with them as long as I used it.

Cons

Previous to using Zoho, we were managing all our CS in our email inbox. Items were getting lost or forgotten about and it was driving me crazy.
The user interface can be a bit confusing if you are an entry level user.
Lack of customization options in the lower subscription tiers.

Cons

I do not have special concerns about the software even with the pricing. But one problem there was simply I can not decide whether it is the problem of G Suite or Tawk.to.
The notifications are inconsistent, and if you aren't monitoring it 24/7 you will miss people talking to you.
The chat notifications are A bit irritating. It would notify our boss if we didn't attend to chats.

Looking for a helpdesk for your site for free? This is the best.

Reviewed 5 years ago

With Tawk I can now have a complete help desk system for my company without much effort and in just 10 minutes.

Pros

After trying dozens of services, I chose Tawk because it is the most complete. You can literally customize everything for a very low cost. Tawk allows you to manage the chats your organization has with customers, evaluate them, supervise your customer service employees and have a perfect mobile application. Application that works in real time and very easy to use.

Cons

The application works very well and most of its features are free but a more modern interface would be appreciated.

Pros

Our organization uses a website to allows members to do various things like register for events. Sometimes, people have run into trouble or questions while trying to do something. Now, there's a little box in the corner that allows them to start a chat session with me so I can help them out. It has come in really handy and been a huge time saver for myself and our members. This exceeded expectations...

Cons

I really can't think of any valid cons.
