Zoho desk allows me to track all incoming requests and to convert website visitors to real customers

Reviewed a year ago

A good-looking dashboard and customizable reports make a significant difference from other products I used. I am a visual man and it is very important for me to have a great visualized report.

Pros

The most valuable feature for me is the ability to create different tickets for customer's requests. After delegates the ticket to the specific team I am sure the customer will be served in high quality... The custom dashboard gives me the all information I need to make better decisions and to take any action if there is any significant problem.

Cons

I would like to have an opportunity to make more customization to web forms in the same way as Zoho CRM.

Zoho Desk: easy to use, customizable, and evolving service desk suite

Reviewed 6 months ago

We looked at a few others (Salesforce, FreshDesk, and others) and were surprised by many of the features. There were many Zoho branded products and services available that seemed to work well during testing. The interface and mobile apps were fairly intuitive and we were able to get a fully functional demo up and running in a matter of hours without much trouble. We evaluated it with other software at the same time, so let's compare how long it took us to get it up and running and use it functionally with other systems.

Pros

The initial setup wizard worked smoothly. Navigation through the configuration menus is simple and intuitive. The customer access portal home page is in place and ready for further customization of content. A clean design that displays the functions that are needed at this time.

Cons

The initial 14-day trial period is fine for "getting started", but trying to juggle a new set of desktop services and day-to-day work seems to work against the clock. A 30 to 45-day trial period would be excellent, as it allows you to become so familiar with the software that you are more willing to use it.

We have been trying Zoho Work area for quite a while and we can say that the underlying setup is easy to the point that in several hours your IT office will be working with this device. Before Zoho Work area, we utilized other help programming, yet the setup and revealing device needs a ton of design and backing from a specialist in the device, to get the maximum capacity, not at all like Zoho Work area which in couple of steps improves on the execution .

Zoho Desk can be customized as per business needs. It is a very effective tool to support sales support and tracking of sales, customer satisfaction and ongoing customer support

Excellent CRM software with clean interface

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

What I like the most is that it really is very intuitive and easy to use. It helps to control the tracking of every ticket in a easy way. Also one can import its customers without any problem. It has many other tools that can be useful regardless the item which company is using on day to day basis. It can start a live chat with the user and can go straight creating a ticket from this internment. Ticket tracking and escalation matrix enables company to track and manages customer complaints on time.

Cons

This doesn’t come in language other than English, making a little more complicated. Tickets generated cannot be duplicated. Information cannot be customized/ sorted on multiple parameters It does not allow modifying the name of the company in the structure, after it has been created, which does not allow modifying the name of the same in the configuration of the emails. It does not allow to place field to attach files in the advanced web form. It does not allow adding or deleting fields in the response widget, they remain the same predefined for all cases.

Aside from a few odd issues (mentioned previously) Zoho Desk does its job well. I wouldn't call the software outstanding by any means, but it doesn't get in the way of my job.

Pros

Important functions are where they need to be, and not hidden beneath submenus of submenus. The site is responsive, and I haven't encountered any major bugs.

Cons

Zoho Desk acts normal when a user submits a ticket via email, but when I have to make one myself it starts acting somewhat strange. First, you need a contact assigned to the ticket. Reasonable enough, but the contact list is always empty. However, entering the user's email address will produce a prompt stating that there's already a contact with that address. Auto-filling a user's info this way is...

Really like Zoho and their offers, it's a good software for the money spent

Reviewed 5 years ago

Organized information for supporting my customer and having their information on hand for any situation that might arise.

Pros

I use Zoho Desk every day of the week Mon-Fri on my desktop at work and the app on the weekends to monitor my queue. Overall, this is a solid ticketing system for support issues for my customers since we are an email driven company. It's very organized and is updating all the time that includes new features and performance increases.

Cons

One of the cons I have, is their support team is a bit on the slow side when it comes to responses. This could be that their policies way different then my companies but we least respond in under 24 hours. The other con is their ability to understand what you are trying to describe to them for help. Their forums are a better resource than their support email.

Using Zoho Desk as a ticketing based solution is great

Reviewed 12 days ago

A single glance at this program was all it took to fix the ticketing problems we were facing. When we were looking for a new software, I was simply able to get the things I required and could display them to my team with no trouble at all.

Pros

As a ticketing system, Zoho Desk allows us to keep tabs on and respond to customers' questions about our bespoke goods, whether they reach out to us via email, phone, or in person. Although we have just begun to understand how the system works, we already have a good idea of how beneficial it will be after we have fully implemented it.

Cons

When it comes to cost, Zoho should be more transparent when incorporating additional tools like Zoho Assist. Although Zoho's huge amount of modules is a great asset, it would be even more helpful if there were a means to track the potential financial impact of implementing various configuration options.

The best Ticket dealing with stage that is a business fundamental device"

Reviewed 2 months ago

Many highlights and various ways of communicating with potential client base. As a web engineer, coordinating it into my site was shockingly simple and smooth. We see a ton of potential for smoothing out our deals cycle decreasing information section errands while having the option to arrive at additional clients consistently, without the requirement for a meddlesome contact structure and call that a ton of the more youthful customers are staying away from in these business sectors.

Pros

There is no Work area application for Zoho Work area, a vital missing element. The alternate route symbol for Late things might have been set better, perhaps in the top header menu rather than in the footer. The footer menu should be more noticeable, as it is unrecognizable on more modest size screens.

Cons

The easy to use android and IOS applications are one of the most outstanding elements of Zoho Work area, which I like the most. Different highlights which I likewise respect are-It furnishes a basic gadget code with a couple of snaps once you choose to coordinate it with your site or application; you can undoubtedly follow your tickets in general and specialists from the dashboard interface; you can embed labels with each pass to bunch them into explicit classifications for examination and investigating.

Fully ticketing and best helpdesk application system - Great Value for Great Features

Reviewed 3 months ago

Overall, I found the Zoho Desk user interface to be great. It's easy to navigate and create tickets, which saved me a lot of time and effort. I would highly recommend this product to anyone looking for a good ticketing system.

Pros

We were looking for a ticketing solution that could help us manage customer enquiries, document and collaborate communication, as well as track and resolve customer issues. Zoho Desk is the perfect solution for our customer success team. It's integration with other Zoho products such as Contacts and Calendar, has really streamlined how we interact with our customers. Zoho Desk has a huge list of features, making it very configurable to our specific business needs. The price is very competitive, making it an excellent value.

Cons

It can be frustrating when we can't find the right functionality or how to implement it, so it would be helpful if advanced features were more accessible or if there were tips on how to use them. However, sometimes companies choose to only make these available at higher pricing tiers.

The gold standard in customer service!

Reviewed 7 months ago

Invaluable progress has been made in facilitating communication. Helping us more effectively assist and guide customers who have questions or concerns about our offerings. Because of the faster resolution of customer issues, we have also seen a rise of at least 10% in the number of new customers requesting our services.

Pros

Currently, we're using the Zoho Desk application to aid our customers and foster deeper connections between our products and services. And in this way, we can speed up the resolution of any issues or complaints our users may have inside the service.

Cons

If we were using an issue tracking application, the ability to drag and drop items across categories would be really helpful. To my knowledge, the ability to receive and transmit voice memos has also been introduced. What you propose is novel in the extreme.

It helps improve the level and quality of support provided to clients.

Reviewed 8 months ago

In short, Zoho Desk has enabled us to raise the level of the service center for assistance provided to our customers, and indeed, the response time has improved, and the distribution of tasks to team members has become easier. In addition to that, Zoho Desk has enabled us to better measure the extent of customer satisfaction with the services provided.

Pros

Zoho Desk enables us to efficiently provide support services to our customers, no matter how many products we offer so that we ensure that our customers get a unique experience and provide them with complete transparency through which they can follow up on their requests at all stages. I love the fact that automation with Zoho Desk enables us to provide optimal support to our customers, as we are able...

Cons

I think that Zoho Desk, despite the great services it helps us with, needs more improvements, as well as more automation of functions, so that we can better control the service robot, so that it can provide more services to customers so that it shortens their time, and the alert system must be improved so that It sends alerts according to the priority or importance of the request.

Great - and their customer service is great as well.

Pros

We got this software after using another vendor for about two years. During that time we learned what our needs were and had Zoho Desk on our shortlist. The criteria that we used was: + Easily integrate into the Knowledge Base (KB) + KB easily integrates into tickets + Tickets can be handled by multiple departments and permissions can be restricted to those departments + Single Sign On (SSO) integration...

Cons

It can sometimes get too bloated on your browser because it has a lot of data under the hood, and search can be finicky at times - but it's quite manageable. The above would not impact me choosing this platform again.

Excellently constructed with fantastic Automation features

Reviewed 20 days ago

We may use Zoho Desk to solve and track concerns brought by our members. This feature emphasises the member experience by allowing them to trace the concerns they raised through the helpdesk environment. Before this technology, our internal communication and customer service channels were a shambles. We now have a centralised ticketing system that produces automatic ticket numbers, and our customers are kept up to speed on our progress through the Resolution and Time Entry choices.

Pros

The most useful feature is the helpdesk and chat function, which allows us to engage with our customers in real-time. All of the agents' visibility, ticket status, and ticket submission page are excellent. The Contacts field allows us to add and update customer information, making it a comprehensive system for client management. Unlike some other mobile app solutions, it delivers push alerts when a new ticket is received. Its benefit is that it displays the entire ticket history. At the same time, I can generate requests fast. You may also automate and define rules for many of your chores. Simple to use, and the customer support website allows you to quickly build a FAQ and an article.

Cons

One thing I didn't enjoy about the mobile app was that you couldn't turn off alerts for particular sorts of tickets. When merging a request, it throws an error as if it had a timer and does not merge. We aim to give it another shot because, in addition to the fundamental helpdesk responsibilities, it would be a critical component to increasing service efficiency.
