    Freshdesk works great when it comes to ticket escalation and moving the request from queue to queue. We have different support tiers as well as different levels of urgency that we assign to tickets. Having the option to move those tickets across different support queues that are assigned to various representatives is a must have for us. We also have queues assigned to our various teams (support, product, account management, development, etc.) since not all tickets end up being support related.

    Having been in IT for 10+ years and used so many different PSA platforms, I must say working with HaloPSA has been simply amazing. Straight out of the box, it's fast. It's feature-rich. It's easy to set up the basics, and the onboarding team was amazing. The onboarding team actually spends time with you, human on human, walking you through the setup and getting it working how you want. No one else does that included. Yeah, sure, you can pay CW and the other huge amounts of money, and they sort of help you, but HaloPSA helps you from the start; it seems they realise if they help set it up correctly in the first place, it reduces support calls. We can run our business from day one - very customer-centric. We have been using HaloPSA for a year now, and there is still plenty to learn and develop on the platform, but every week we are learning new things that we can do. The support team is great; they are humans who understand the issues we face, so they get things working fast. We have suggested some missing features to the dev team, and so far, they have implemented all of them - WOW. Don't get me wrong, as with all platforms, HaloPSA is not perfect. It's young, but it's maturing fast, very fast, and they are getting integrations built with the major players in the IT industry, which is fantastic. Yes, a few times, the link to Xero broke, which was annoying, but unlike the platforms we used in the past, the support team spoke to us and told us what the problem was and got it fixed, so you can't ask for more than that. Their growth has been fantastic to see, but again this has meant a bit of change around with account managers, support personnel, etc., but everyone they bring on is just as good as the last. All in all, migrating to HaloPSA was the best software/platform decision I have made in our business since I began the business. I would recommend HaloPSA to any IT business. Well done, Team HALO. Keep up the awesome work.

    Pros

    Freshworks Inc

    • Follow up on all conversations that enter and are easy to use by the employee and save responses ready for use.
    • Find out the average rate of the number of conversations that occur in the company and conduct the analysis.
    • There is a feature it allows one to take a permit in the name of the employee who responds to the conversation and to know the problem faced by the customer and the solution.

    Cons

    Freshworks Inc

    • To be honest I never noticed any
    • It was smooth for me but one thing I found an issue for me as a developer I was required to send code sometimes but due to Freshdesk internal security scanning it was not allowing me to do so.

    We are extremely happy with Freshdesk and can foresee using it for the next year. We might only consider using a different platform if our average daily ticket volume reaches four digits and its AI isn’t enough to handle our needs by then. While we haven’t tested this yet, we have read reviews that it’s AI capabilities are lacking

    Usability

    Freshworks Inc

    I gave it a rating of 9 out of 10 because they delivered on everything we asked them to do. Easy to setup, easy to deploy to end users, easy to customize, easy to enter tickets and so much more. Our experience with their support is top notch! After opening a ticket for support they call use back within 10 minutes every time!

    Reliability and Availability

    Freshworks Inc

    I have encountered a lot of errors in the Freshdesk, however, they tend to resolve it on priority or at least they will share the timeline by when this can be resolved. Most of the time the issue has been from the other partner's end. They take time to resolve their vendor issues and they don't have any timelines in case of developed app errors.

    Performance

    Freshworks Inc

    The reports take a lot of time to download if the time period is large. Also, the tickets take their sweet time to open and load. It is not fast as Zendesk. Only 30 tickets are visible in a single go and there isn't any option to select all. If we need to change the pages and dashboards it takes a lot of time to open.

    Support Rating

    Freshworks Inc

    The main thing about Freshdesk user service is that once a request has been made for information about a feature of the platform, the support team responds to tickets quickly, within a day of writing and submitting them, with information that is concise enough so that there is no need to ask for help on the same topic again.

    In-Person Training

    Freshworks Inc

    In-person training is provided to all the agents and it is very easy to learn the basics of the Freshdesk interface. Solving tickets via dashboards, replying to the guest queries in bulk via Freshdesk. The training which is a bit hard is creating the logic according to the ticket flow and intergeration.

    Online Training

    Freshworks Inc

    This tool is no doubt easy to learn but in-person training is a lot better than online training. It takes time to grasp things in the online training, however, in pandemic we have done all the training online. Apart from a bit more time we haven't faced any issues with online training.

    Implementation Rating

    Freshworks Inc

    For the three years of using and implementing Freshdesk in the company, it has progressed massively. I can still remember that the features it had before are nothing compared to now. It has a lot of app integration which makes system communications effective and easier. Everything in the business now complements Freshdesk. The processes and workflows we have is the best fit with Freshdesk.

    Alternatives Considered

    Freshworks Inc

    Freshdesk offers a free trial of 21 days and the onboarding is a very smooth process. It is comparatively cheaper than its competitors and the UX is far more simple than the other products in the market. Also, the customer support that we get post the purchase is brilliant and the available in-app integrations prove to be very efficient and helpful.

    We have used and tried several other PSA vendors and HaloPSA was our favorite by far. Many others were either much too overly complicated, clunky, slow to respond to issues, incomplete, or they simply failed to deliver on promises made, especially in terms of integrations.

    Contract Terms and Pricing Model

    Freshworks Inc

    The pricing we had taken is on yearly basis but the subscription and billing frequency that we have is on monthly basis. I would not want to make any changes to it, it is a seamless process with all the contract terms and we both agreed on it. It should be as per the customer's need.

    Scalability

    Freshworks Inc

    The product they have developed is amazing. They have made different products for emails, tickets, chats & calls as well. It is flexible according to multiple departments. The finance team can use it, the Customer support team is using it, we can use it in call centres, emails etc. We can use these tickets internally as well to create child tickets and assign them to different departments for query resolution.
