    Freshdesk

    It is well suited for a company who needs to provide an enhanced service desk ticketing system. They are scalable to accomodate from small to large scale businesses. Also their product is ready to use right away with very little customizing. There are many integrations that are apart of the system and compliment well

    What I have found to be the most critical for my business as a customer of Thryv is the ability to provide an invoice and accept payment with direct linking to my bank account. This has had a dramatic positive impact on my cash flow.

    Pros

    Freshdesk

    • Freshdesk has enough options to deal with the engagement operations that are collected through the chosen channels. For example, it is easy to compare through analytics tables the engagement achieved in certain social networks and then create commercial strategies in the networks with the best results.
    • Freshdesk has a very high level of interoperability with customer relationship management platforms, so that through its API it is possible to incorporate sales functions or work with customers, so that the management is a little apart from technical assistance without problems.
    • It is easy to save the information of each problem that is solved for the buyers of our products, and in case we communicate with them again, the data stored on these interactions are accessible to review their history, and thus better orientate the type of solutions that can or cannot be offered to them.

    Thryv

    • Customer service is FANTASTIC!
    • Put regularly used and needed tasks under one umbrella.
    • Makes it easy to schedule and post to Social Media
    Dona Carlisle | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Cons

    Freshdesk

    • Reporting is a bit awkward sometimes, but you can level up for better reporting
    • The client onboarding to get them user accounts isn't always clearly defined
    • There are a lot of features many we didn't use, would have been nice to have more granular control over that to adjust our pricing
    John Reitz | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Thryv

    • Offer an automated rewards program for my customer based on their spending and their referrals.
    • Since I use Shopify and they host me it would be nice to get a financial break for not using that part of the package.
    • Maybe providing apps.

    Freshdesk is feature rich and easy to use. The setup is intuitive and can integrate with Google, so we do not need to create accounts for new employees. The first time an employee needs to create a ticket they login with their Google account and the Freshdesk account is automatically generated

    Freshdesk equips the sales team with the most enhanced communication capabilities and features that are responsible for delivering high level of customer support. Freshdesk has multiple-channel support that enables the customer care agents to broaden their reach and streamline ticket delivery. It is designed to provide maximum collaboration to internal teams giving them options to split a ticket into smaller tickets.

    It is very easy to use and the features are great for the ones we utilize. If you have any issues at all, customer service or our sales rep is great to work with and fixes what issues I have. They are always willing to help out and to follow up to make sure you don't have any more issues.

    Support has been good the few times we have needed it, but most of our issues have been easily resolved by using the support documentation. We used guides starting out getting everything ready for the first use and it was smooth sailing. For contacting the support team, responses have been quick and accurate.

    Although getting through to the right person may take a while, they have the ability to take over your screen and always assist with whatever you need.

    Alternatives Considered

    Freshdesk

    ManageEngine was our first customer support ticketing system we implemented (instead of using a massive Excel file) - it vastly improved our ability to engage with customers, but we quickly outgrew it's feature-set and needing a solution that would continue to grow with us. Salesforce was difficult at best during our time using it - felt like we were told of the amazing things it could do, and upon purchase were sent a bunch of building blocks that we were expected to build ourselves - between Salesforce costs and third-party programming to get it to do what we needed to, Salesforce was not around for long (the 7% year after year increases were also a deal breaker).We picked Freshdesk because it offered a modern solution for a price that we were very happy with. We did compare it to Zendesk, but at the time of purchase several years ago, we were hearing better reviews of a relative new system of Freshdesk, so went with them. So far it has been a good investment, minus the occasional hiccups and quality of life issues.

    Let's say use this software because it gives a lot of benefits to the company and we no other software use do not.

    Return on Investment

    Freshdesk

    • The value provided by Freshdesk is better than the competitors we considered when looking at cost vs features
    • We migrated to Freshdesk from another similar platform and found that the UX/UI was easier to navigate and required less clicks to close out a support request, these clicks add up over time and allowed us to process more tickets in a given day without growing out team.

    • Increased Social Media Presence has kept us in touch with clients
    • I believe our overall package has resulted in increased web traffic. More clients are finding us through social media and web searches than any other year before.
