Pros: Zen desk made service tickets for our applications come in in a timely fashion, and allowed the ability to connect with the end user directly through the application. It allowed us to categorized the tickets into subject matter as well as priority. Allowing us to deal with highest priority tickets first. Also allowed tickets to be assign to specific groups or individual support staff. making sure they are assigned to the appropriate staff to solve the issue. Flagging the tickets was great as well, it allowed to be flagged that it is in process as well as completed. once completed they were automatically moved to a different folders which was great as it allows you to view only the active tickets, but as well go back and reference the old ones if needed.

Cons: It required a queue manager to assign the tickets to our support staff, which is usual, but if someone doesn't do it regularly tickets could be lost.

The ZenDesk makes it incredibly easy for customers to send questions to the team.

Pros: A turnkey product that is readily designed for support managers. I've leveraged numerous support service platforms and Zendeks understands what managers needs and implements with delightful solutions.

Cons: Sometimes features are slow to develop. It can take a long time for Zendesk to develop a new tool, but once it is developed it is a bigger feature than I initially requested.

Zendesk is a great way to stay in touch with customers.

Pros: I loveeee how many integrations Zendesk has with other programs. We were at a mobile app so you could integrate Zendesk with popups within the app, as well as our website.

Cons: I hate that you have to pay extra to not have a basic template - it should be included with how much you pay!

We use Zendesk to communicate what we need from other departments.

Pros: It helps us all work together to accomplish the same goal more efficiently. I don't have to trust that someone remembers everything I asked for in a meeting. A ticket is put in, and my coworker can see exactly what needs to get done when. i can even see how many other things he has going on.

Cons: There's a lot you can do with it so it can get kind of cumbersome if you just need something simple done.

Pros: Before Zendesk we really had no protocol on how we kept track of our response to customers needing phone service. Zendesk helps us keep track of our responses and sends an email to the customer with a log of the conversation they had with out service techs. Customers can respond to those emails to ask further questions/get more help or let us know if they were happy with the service they received.

Cons: Overall I don't really think there was much I did not like about the software, however we have not used any other service software to be able to compare it.

Overall: We were able to streamline our responses to our customers in need of service, keep track of each issue the customers had and log the information into our customer files. Our response time decreased and our customers were happier with a shorter wait to fix their issues.

Pros: Our customer service/community team utilizes Zen desk to address issues raised by our large community and generally track and manage tickets. We particularly appreciate the strong analytics platform behind Zendesk as we are a metrics and data driven organization.

Cons: Email alias for ZenDesk can be nondescript and confusing for customers. The nature of ticketing can feel impersonal for our end users despite live CS agents answering the threads. There are more needs for AI (for smart tracking and smooth transition between CS agents) and general logistics when multiple agents are handling a single thread. There is a steep learning curve as well.

Cons: Talking of the app and customer support, we weren't that impressed with tutorials at the beginning. we ditched the app for an alternative due to unimpressive UI. Where is google when you need it.

Comments: Great product; sets the industry standard.

Pros: Zendesk is a central base for all of your documentation and support needs. The tool allows you to provide articles, chat support, general communication, and manage all of it with professional analytics. A tool like this can revolutionize a company's support team.

Cons: My only complaint is that the knowledge base comes together with other services; while that wound up being a good thing for us, we initially only wanted a knowledge base and couldn't purchase it separately.

I've used ZenDesk for more than 5 years and implemented it at our company.

Pros: ZenDesk automates and documents customer support in a way that is so easy to use. I don't have trouble training people on ZenDesk, they just seem to figure it out, which speaks volumes.

Cons: The customer side of things can be a little difficult to navigate, they tell me. And the templates never seem to fit what we're looking for. Setting up rules is super powerful but as a result complicated, and you can easily break what many would consider core functionality. But it's the price you pay for flexibility, and there's lots of it!

Pros: If you are using the Atlassian suite of products, especially Jiram then it just make sense that you should be using this as well. This helps you organize your support emails automatically with little setup. The history tracking is great as well.

Cons: History tracking is great but can be too verbose. I hope there's a way to delete "some" of the history. Also, we always seem to have a problem with images in emails. They never get automatically attached to JIRA or to a ticket when forwarding emails from it.

Pros: Excellent software, it is an electronic commerce tool, it stands out for its customer service through email, telephone line, social networks and real-time chat through an application, the tool is developed so that calls can be made from Zendesk, even thanks to its user interface, several entries can be viewed at the same time

Cons: It does not have significant disadvantages, one of the few disadvantages is with respect to prices, it may be somewhat higher than the rest of the customer service software, and on the other hand, it does not have the possibility of changing the code (Open Source )

Overall: Zendesk is an excellent leading software based on the cloud, is easy to use and is an easy and fast way to provide customer service, the interface is easy and intuitive, which allows agents to be incredibly productive and direct all their energy to help customers.

Pros: Our support team has used Zendesk for the past 4 years and it is a major improvement from our last support system. The monthly statistics are great to see how we are doing as a team, as well as, the knowledge base feature for both in house and customer facing.

It would be so helpful to be able to break off a new request from our customers, without the original request being overlooked or forgotten.

Pros: It is a good cloud based CRM tool with simplified functionalities and options, easy to navigate through, it's ability to search a ticket by contact, user or subject and merge those tickets into one are much appreciated. it provides ability to mass select and close the tickets at a time.you can close them all at once when the issue is resolved or if you have an update. Since we receive so many tickets, the best features Zendesk has to counter this are Triggers, Automations and Macros.

Cons: Certainly ZenDesk is not the best among category also they continue to make changes without telling you, functionality disappears and they have always lacked some key metrics for reporting. Sometimes the app loses the link. I have to Sign Out & log back in.

Pros: The real-time multi-channel customer support utility using this tool makes it one of the best CRM tools which I have ever used. I used to manage telecom, email, chat & social media campaigns using this tool, via my laptop and smartphone too. It is an efficient tool to improve the Customer Support Operations.

Cons: I didn't like the mess which used to be there after a point of time in emails & repeat tickets due to unresolved issues. I had to put in extra efforts to get things right, whereas if there was some sort of automation to reflect multiple tickets or communication from one single customer by default, then it will make the life of a user/administrator easy!

Cons: Competitors offer better prices. I also didn't like that fact that you need to upgrade in order to receive more functionalities even if your team size stays the same. So if you are a small business but want more functionalities it can be very expensive.

Pros: The tool is easy to learn and does not require special technological skills. It provides a platform to build efficiency and responsibility quickly within a department. This has been an extremely effective tool for managing the high volume of emails that arrive, specifically for AP. Functions such as "Views" and "Reports" are excellent tools to control current tickets. The built-in spell checker is, in fact, a lifesave, You can easily track the previous ticket history in case you need to refer to a previous problem, you can combine tickets so you can know what to look for and to focus more on creating an answer, We have the macros configured to mark the tickets as spam, deliver them to another team, etc. I have more time to think about my answers and manage our inflow.

Cons: They could benefit greatly from additional email options and customizations, as well as solving some "bug" problems, since some of the features may be somewhat vague. Also, they need to improve notification to personal email because we do not have all of them and, sometimes, I can not see the customer's response on time.

Overall: Thanks to Zendesk, now everything is optimized and well organized, we can offer more productive and professional services to our customers.

Cons: The search engine could have opportunities for improvement. In my experience you are required to search for items on the support portal by the exact phrase and spelling. If you are having trouble remembering what exactly you are looking for then searching can be quite challenging.

Cons: It has very limited search capability. No sorting once you have tickets pulled up. An upgrade about a year ago removed the date/time stamp that was specific. Now it is "a month ago" instead of date and time stamp. When you are using it for help desk tickets the exact date and time is critical. I would not recommend this system.

Overall: We setup a helpdesk software using one of the tower-tier plans.

Being able to communicate with a customer is a great feature of Zendesk.

Pros: I like that I am able to communicate with a customer no matter where I am located. This will keep me in touch with my team and I can get things done, when I am not available.

Cons: I do not like that the price point plans are rated as they are. I think that the price points should include a little more features for the money that we pay.

Pros: I have enjoyed using Zendesk because of the ease of use. There was little to know learning curve, as all options are clearly articulated. The ability to customize was also wonderful, so the website fit the company perfectly.

Cons: I have used Zendesk as a company information collaborative, where current employees can view policies, updates, activities, etc. For this purpose, it worked perfectly.

Pros: Zendesk is a great tool to add to your business and resolve clients issues. Growing business need to address clients concerns and Zendesk helps on that. It keeps tracks of the tickets created, provides great charts and statistics, overall is a great tool to manage concerns and one you can count on.

Cons: Zendesk sometimes makes it hard to keep records of account. It's great for tickets, but in my personal experience, it doesn't keep enough track users account, only of the problem or ticket it sends in. I've tried over tools that do, which now Zendesk is lacking.

Overall: You get a great ticketing tool, manage to keep a great track of a client's single request and get back to him as soon as possible. Issues with Zendesk have been minimum and resolved in a rapid manner.

Pros: Zendesk has proven itself a super powerful tool in our world. It is the backbone of our support operations, because it allows for a distribution of support tasks amongst our support staff. Zendesk is totally auditable, so you can see what individual support staff have done on an individual ticket, and can also be plugged into data analysis tools so that you can get a bigger picture idea.

It's solid software, through-and-through.

Cons: It would be awesome if individual users could change around the colour and theme of the software. It's a pretty niche ask... because it's tough to think of things that aren't great about Zendesk! Once you get cracking with it, it's an immensely powerful and easy-to-use tool.

Overall: Our Support Team is well-connected and agile!

A great customer support tool.

Pros: There is a reason a large number of major product companies are using Zendesk - it's easy. You can plug and play rather quickly, it sorts your history of customer issues, allows you to tag support tickets with specific labels, and provides detailed metrics regarding response time and satisfaction.

Cons: Zendesk is difficult to customize or match to your company's branding. There is an ability to custom code your own site, but it still holds a general Zendesk style. That also requires someone who can code changes to make it your own.

I used Zendesk at my previous role and loved it.

Pros: I loved the layout of Zendesk and how easy and clear it was to use. At my previous job, it was our primary way to communicate with customers, so I used it all day.

Cons: I wish Zendesk had been better about duplicating repeat requests from customers. This is a common customer service issue, and so far, I've never seen it successfully done with any other software.

Pros: The best parts of this product has been:

- Ease of use - Very easy to get setup and working
- Low monthly cost - starting at $25 an agent
- Totally Cloud hosted - Nothing to host onpremise
- Lots of integrations - Too many to list
- Simple config - Very easy to setup and create the workflow you need
- Ease of customization - Very customizable for your support and ticketing needs.
- Branding - Grey label branding, can brand most items.

Cons: I honestly cant think of anything to say that is bad overall. It be nice if workflow/approval process was built into it, but that is able to be added as an add-on.

Overall: Increased productivity and better handling of client support issue and needs.

Pros: Full featured and made running our IT Helpdesk easy. Great integrations and the ability to setup reports and do live chat saved my help-desk a lot of time. Overall a very solid ticket sytem.

Cons: Zenddesk is expensive. I ended up using osTicket which is an opensource ticketsytem. I went from $20 a user to $0 / user. I host my osTicket in amazon for ~$10 / month with unlimited users.

Overall: it was easy and full featured but expensive

Pros: Zendesk is great to use for instant chats and to answer customer questions quickly. I enjoyed the customer service Zendesk provided. Their support staff was always friendly and willing to help.

Cons: I did not enjoy having to customize reports to pull specific information for each agent. I can say that everything else with Zendesk was great, we just weren't able to customize the reports as easily as we would've like to be able to.

Pros: Most of my service providers are using it, so I can have a good control over my tickets and status!

Cons: I can't think about something really bad, the only thing I'm not crazy about it is the interface, it could be more intuitive, but it depends on your provider's configuration.
