Desk.com is well suited for teams that need to deal with lots of ingoing and outgoing communications. It would be less appropriate for extremely small teams, or for customer service teams that do not need to deal with high volume communications

HappyFox Help Desk

Happy Fox works well in companies that want a full look at all of their tickets in one place. It may be better suited to smaller companies who can check or double check their tickets and have the time to spare. For bigger companies, I think there are better, more robust solutions.

Pros

Desk.com

  • Desk.com makes tracking customer inquiries easy. A ticket is created for each customer email by linking to our main customer support email address, and we can create tickets manually for logging phone calls. This allows us to have more than one person keeping track of all inquiries, and we can ensure that everyone in our customer support group is fully aware of all inquiries that particular customer has made, since all are tracked under the customer.
  • Desk.com allows us to put metrics around our customer inquires and IT problems by allowing each ticket to be categorized by subjects of our choosing. This way, we are able to track items of importance to our group, running reports on the different labels used for our tickets, and giving us an overall view of what is being inquired about most, allowing us to see any problems or major concerns in real time.
  • Desk.com provides much flexibility for our needs as a company, allowing us to tailor the software for our everyday use. We are able to set up our own email templates, macros, and information site, as well as labels that are more specific to the work we do.

  • Smart Rules - Easily create triggers that run based on a variety of criteria. This allows for easily moving tickets through our process. An awesome example is our manager's ability to assign tickets to technicians right from their email simply by responding to the ticket in a certain way. This prevents the opening of a web browser or the mobile app to complete basic functions. Removing one step from the process has already saved us countless hours.
  • Easy to use and clean interfaces all around. Whether it's the web interface, mobile web interface, or one of the mobile apps, HappyFox is all around intuitive. Plenty of things can be made to be updated in two or fewer clicks (Assigned to, due date, priority).
  • HappyFox allows our users to easily create tickets on behalf of customers. Any person who has previously contacted the Help Desk is stored as a contact and can be referenced again quickly.
  • While the portal they provide is basic, it can be quite heavily customized with color schemes and logos. Ours ended up looking better than almost anything else we host both internally and externally. It's clean, simple and provides an easy way for users to input a ticket.
  • Between the Smart Rules and SLAs it's easy to make sure every ticket gets the attention it deserves. Automatic reminders can be sent to technicians based on criteria. Reports can be run to ensure that service levels are being met. These two things alone have greatly increased the quality of service.

Cons

Desk.com

  • Internal knowledge tools are clunky and annoying to access, outside the regular workflow of everyday staff
  • Arbitrary and confusing limitations in business rules and custom fields
  • Arbitrary and confusing limitations in case handling - for example, if you begin a case as a phone call you CANNOT email the customer from the case. As though no one working at Desk has ever sent a follow-up email...?
  • Not very good for B2B, mid-to-large businesses. Difficult to set business rules based on company information (for example, service level/tier) and nearly impossible to track key stakeholders and get clear insight into the relationship at a high level
  • Reporting tools are clunky, slow, and just all-around pretty useless

  • There are a few features that I would hope to be standard that are not yet accessible. For instance, having different time zones isn't a choice, and clients aren't able to create their own reports, only staff can. So, my staff is required to run those reports for our clients.

I chose an 8 because it is easy to use and integrate we are working to make improvements and our support team has bought in. We are able to track soon to close opportunities in it as well as give good feed back to upper management on headcount and other issues

The way we have our implementation customized has allowed us to tailor the application to exactly how we would like to use it. We didn't have to change our procedures and fear the potential of poor adoption. Instead we customized the application to be used the way we already ran our help desk. From there on out we reaped the benefits of quicker resolutions, increased transparency, and much happier end users. After setting up Smart Rules, HappyFox does a lot of thinking for us. Tickets go where they need to go, close when they are supposed to close and even remind techs of inactivity. This removes the necessity for micromanagement, which is appreciated by our employees and managers alike

The UI is clean, well organized, and extremely functional. They don't waste any pixels on fluff and window dressing. When you're in Desk, you're there to Get Stuff Done.

For simple questions, their support is extremely responsive but for some more complicated topics it can drag for days. Also I reported bugs a couple of times and they told me it would be updated but that never happened. Also they are not reassigning tickets for agents that are on holiday so if you are unlucky you will need to wait for your agent to return from his vacation to get the assistance.

As I stated earlier, implementation of Desk.com went more smoothly than most. The resources in the "Support Center" are fantastic, and I never ran into anything that left me stumped, angry, or disappointed.

Desk.com

Originally, I was using Salesforce to keep track of students and their progress through the system (with an end goal in mind). It was really great for handling students on a case by case basis with the different fields and and sections for multiple people to complete as the student progresses. Desk.com met our needs from a customer service tracking point of view. We're able to keep track of what types of questions students are asking and gives us an easy communication board for answering questions. These two services are not quite comparable because they serve different purposes but if you're looking to do support, Desk.com is easily customizable

HappyFox delivered a more cost effective solution and asset management had no limit. The main problem I saw with the various other services I demoed, was the up charges. The pricing seems manageable until you see that they charge for every 100 or so of this and 100 of that. HappyFox is truly a one-stop shop for us.

Return on Investment

Desk.com

  • Better customer service and employee efficiency when dealing with cases
  • It's so universal, meaning that everyone can use it and it's easy to understand.
  • The only negative impact is that our IT department who is assigned tickets has responded to customers instead of to the local reps and we have to ensure they know to change the email if it's assigned to them.

  • Through Email support, the company conducts a marketing plan, through sharing of catalogs.
  • Survey and feedback are conducted and attained from HappyFox.
  • HappyFox supports live chat, an easy way to perfect the satisfaction of clients.
