FreeConference.com is best suited when the big-name video conferencing brands are simply not working. It offers an alternative when compatibility seems to be an issue when attempting to video conference. It is less appropriate for first invitations since most people are not familiar with the brand.

In comparison to what we were doing previously, we have been utilizing TalkDesk and SalesForce for our organization for more than a year, and I am incredibly grateful that our team found this platform. It took us a few weeks to get used to TalkDesk after we switched from SalesForce. My team and I have never found anything easier; calls are immediately documented, cases automatically fill in with the right information, and information can be tracked down quickly. There is never a better service than what we receive from Talkdesk Live on our dashboard. It is really useful for managing our agents and measuring our service level rates, which is crucial if you work for a customer-driven business or job. Wonderful service, indeed
Read full review Pros I love the ability to make long distance calls without charge. I was delighted when they added the ability to screen share and show my slides to my customers. I also love that FreeConference.com immediately provides replays of your meetings - in case somebody wasn't able to attend live. Read full review We were able to replace on-premise solution with Talkdesk Cloud solution within project timelines We were able to migrate region by region while keeping our existing IVR numbers to minimize the impact on customer. We were able to integrate Talkdesk with our cloud CRM, AWS storage and reporting applications The IVR flow changes are easier to understand and manage and to onboard any new team members to support the agents Read full review Cons Not being able to use 800 number (toll free). The website interface could be spruced up a bit.

Talkdesk is an enterprise grade solution for telephony service. Zendesk eould be the only other option in terms of solutions I have implemented and seen in practice. It is easy for business users to learn how to use talkdesk and develop call routing paths dependong on the nature of the customer's request

Talkdesk so far has lived up to its mission grants us a platform to use and engage with our population. They are able to reach us consistently and as they need with very few interruptions in services which for a tech company is not an easy thing to achieve. The platform is very simple to use and understand

I have never had a problem making a phone call or an issue getting a line out. More times than not it is the customer that will have a bad connection or have a lot of noise on their end. I have had experience w/ dropped calls, but never not being able to access a line

We have never had a Talkdesk performance issue. As long as you follow the system requirements, which are MINIMAL, neither will you.
Read full review Support Rating
If Talkdesk had a dedicated phone support line I would have given this rating an overall 10. Their knowledge base is absolutely HUGE and at times very helpful. It's easy to search through and their customer support chat system works perfectly fine, but there are just some times that you need to speak to a human on the phone to ensure you are always on the same page.

I was shown how to use Talkdesk and was happy with it. I learned all I needed.

Training was simple as the app is easy to use. The phone has gone through upgrades since but it's very adaptive and doesn't require a complete session. There are articles available for self help in case something is forgotten. There are a lot of functions to talkdesk and we have not used all of them

Really easy to get set up out of the box. Anything I needed to understand further, I was able to just hop into the Academy and self-teach. I could then bring my team-members to those same sections so they could learn as well without me having to put together complicated SOP's / etc

Call quality is very similar to the above products. However, most of our community partners and collaborators are not aware of FreeConference and are thus less able to utilize it without prompting and sometimes assistance from us.

We were unable to easily access call metrics using WM. Since the switch to Talkdesk, we have not had to struggle with our reporting at all. All the information we need is readily available and can be exported. We are also able to modify the metrics that we need and have them compiled in different ways. The information on Talkdesk is modifiable and makes it easy for us to get the numbers that we need at the end of the day.

We have over 200 employees in 11 states across the United States. Everyone uses Talkdesk. I believe that says a lot about the product and its flexibility. We need to be able to rely on system in order to assist our customers. Reliability and sustainability is important to our success
