    It is a platform with all the requisite features to meet the needs of a complete digital marketing campaign: email marketing with countless automation rules, pop-ups that serve as simple sign-ups or even as cross-sell and up-sell tools, push notifications with ready-made templates for vital functions like browse and cart abandonment, the ability to create offsite landing pages, creation of Facebook ads, and much much more. I really can't think of one scenario in which ContactPigeon won't provide solid solutions.

    Zendesk Support Suite implementation means an industry-class help desk with a dynamic interface that brings together all customer interactions from almost any channel allowing agents to respond faster to customer queries and with the right context. It is more than just a help desk since it also acts as a CRM by allowing us to organize workflows, processes and track customer engagement.

    • Zendesk makes it easy to see if a question/ticket has already been answered/updated (and to see who answered it).
    • Zendesk makes it easy for users to indicate if they are available to respond or not.
    • Zendesk also makes it easy to respond as you can respond within the software/system. A one-stop process!

    Cons

    ContactPigeon

    • The UI is too complex sometimes (hopefully their support is always there for us!)
    Apostolis Lianos | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Zendesk Support Suite

    • Allow each user to customize the look of their Dash, rather than being hemmed in by company selections
    • Provide a way for Suspended tickets (created by emails from non-users) to be better managed
    • Set a timer for tickets to reopen on a more individual ticket basis.

    I am absolutely happy with their services. For any problem or idea that arises, the support team is there to provide solutions, advise, and even write code for the website.

    There has not been a reason to consider anything else as the core functions work perfectly for ticketing. Also Zendesk continues to focus on new functionality, growth of the API and Apps framework and add more partner application to the list. Not only will be renew but it is likely we will add seats as we grow and expand our customer focused teams.

    As an agent it's very simple to use. As an admin it's also easy to use, but sometimes lacks some functionality that would be nice to have such as expanded native 2 way sync functionality for many major apps that are commonly used today like HubSpot and Salesforce. The ability to add followers to tickets to they get updates and are in the know without the customer seeing this agent cc'd is a nice touch. This ensures additional visibility and easily following the communication without having to appear as a CC to the customer, who could accidentally remove that person in a response, thus breaking the visibility

    Every time I contacted them they were not only very responsive and knowledgable, but always seemed to have a positive upbeat attitude. It probably helps that we did not have significant service outages or sev 1 level issues, but even my lower severity issues were quickly answered. And the positive and upbeat attitude really made things feel comfortable.

    Zendesk has tons of available material for training - videos, webinars, articles, etc. The only reason this is not a 10 is because it can be hard to figure out how to navigate to these things and find what you are looking for.

    I was very satisfied. They have a free trial for 30 days and I recommend you do that and use it. It is very easy to get started with the basics and the build on over time.

    The only thing technically complex was single sign-on and integration to Salesforce.com required some tweaks – otherwise setting up system was very easy

    I have not used any other support software, but also evaluated FreshDesk. For our needs at the time, Zendesk was more polished and had the ability to support multiple websites in a single instance, while allowing customization for each brand separately. That was crucial to us, and is why we went with Enterprise.

    Zendesk Support Suite

    • The main part of the IT department is able to quickly prioritize and delegate tickets as they come in.
    • Tickets can be linked to each other and support articles, creating opportunities for more efficient responses.
    • Central location for users to ask for tech help when they don't need to know which staff member is the appropriate person to ask.
