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

Embedded chats with history are quite nice, it has both the messages and notes left by the supporting team members to each other. Chat itself works quite good and overall thing of a good quality.

Intercom is overall a really good, professional product. They have great quality of support, good training material, and they still keep releasing.

When we were first started using them, they were flexible, had great customer service, and seemed genuinely invested in helping us succeed.

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.

Matthew H.

Lack of customization options in the lower subscription tiers.

Ben D.

Cons

Their customer service has been incredible poor. They caused a completely preventable service disruption that caused several hours of outage for our team, and have been difficult to get in touch with.

Susanna N.

We have stuck with intercom for 4 years at this point and no plans to leave.

Updates may be lost, updates may be rejected by intercom because of server side exceptions, or mysterious thing called "concurrent updates" when there is just a single update.
