    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.

    Excellent as a customer relationship management tool, sales forecasting, building better sales plan for the entire deal lifecycle using critical and complex data, a 360-degree comprehensive view of vendors, partners, customers. Ensuring high standards and consistency is maintained in pricing so that quotes are competitive for prospective customers. At the end of the day, this is an excellent tool for selling and closing deals while being able to access needed information in one place.

    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.

    • It doesn't have a lot of information for mid-market in Latin America, so there is info you can increase on this.
    • Job posting may not be part of the Commercial Module because it is where salespeople may look at it and start another process.
    • You may add a top 100 list per country in the lists by default, to make it easier to use when putting attention on the correct sectors.

    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!

    Overall our organization has completely moved to Oracle CX Sales and now is able to utilize the latest technology backed by AI to provide a much better experience to customers and saving money at the same time. So it's a Win-Win situation. I believe there is a slight learning curve to derive [the] full value out of this but once you are there, you can delight your customers.

    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.

    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.

    The support the Oracle team gives is generally very good. They are patient, willing to help, and their training methods are collaborative and inclusive. They have conducted multiple support sessions and it’s always been a great user experience. The stellar team [is] always on hand to lend support when the right time comes and their helpdesk is always on hand to help.

    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.

    Excellent online training material. On-demand always helps to access anytime, anywhere. Also, it is essential that in this day and age, video tutorials with actual product screenshots make the learning more useful and fun at the same time. Certifications help test knowledge gained during these tutorial sessions. This was a blessing for fresh users.

    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.

    As compared to other CRM, this happens to be one of the best and most affordable as there are some cons, but the pros are great, and I have seen an increase in sales by using this platform. It works great for the sales process from start to end, like lead generation to closure.

    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.

    When we purchased this system it was one of the more expensive options in the market. However, with an adjustment in service and a relative price structure, this has become a lot more cost-effective over the past few years. It’s now more of a middle-ranking in the pricing structure and I would definitely say this is value for money.

    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.

    Return on Investment

    Freshworks Inc

    • Freshdesk has greatly reduced the time we spend assisting our customers by leveraging features such as canned replies and integrated support articles.
    • We've integrated automated alerts for support tickets which allow us to multitask - we focus on other issues and switch to providing support only when needed.
    • Our resolution time and turnaround time have decreased dramatically.
    • We are able to easily keep track of our support performance.

    • Unfortunately, our sales team has decreased productivity by trying to use the mobile application. It is poorly designed, and I've heard the same feedback from people at other organizations.
    • The ability to track and convert sales leads has proven to be a positive impact on ROI.
    • We are able to pass along leads and opportunities to our resellers.
