Zendesk Talk

Well suited in the way it records each interaction. This is specifically helpful for my managers that may be dealing with an escalated issue to hear exactly what took place on a call with one of their agents. It's also an amazing way for them to develop and grow their agents to become more productive and impactful on their calls.

  • Allows the supervisor to keep a track record of the agent different states like ready, not ready, in call, [etc...]

Zendesk Talk

  • Call recording is a nice feature! It is great for training purposes and for quality assurance.
  • The metrics you get from Explore are a great insight into how the team is handling the call volumes.
  • Zendesk Talk has met most of our needs. It can be a bit unreliable at times.

We have hardly had any problems, but the attention provided when we need support has been very fast and effective

It did what was expected, but could have looked better. The interface seems to be lacking

Alternatives Considered

Cisco Finesse

We used to use Dialpad and it was a great tool. Since switching to Cisco Finesse, we have had no issues with call forwarding, call transfers, or holding. We no longer experience any issues with our callers in the queue or any issues with call playback for quality assurance. Cisco Finesse has made things much easier around the office.
Dominic Farrow | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Talk

Zendesk Talk has many of the features as the other phone systems I have used. My only reservation is their lack of focus on a feature that will allow their clients to remain PCI compliant.

Return on Investment

Cisco Finesse

  • Cisco brought us into the modern world of calls and call recording capabilities.
  • Cisco's crashes would cripple operations at times.
  • Overall functionality for visibility was a vast improvement from Avaya.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Talk

  • A decrease in employee turnover by 47% due to increased morale from not being bogged down with emails. They feel like they can focus more of their attention on the customer's needs and resolve their issues quicker.
  • Limiting how many people can be in the queue has led to issues with customers getting frustrated with hold times and being harder to save when they are calling in to cancel our services.
