If you cannot measure your current self then you cannot expect to improve. This was told to me by our call center manager a while ago about the importance of knowing exactly what you currently are capable of in order to better know what will be expected in the future. With this I looked at our old system which was clunky, slow, and universally hated, then tried to do better, that better option was Freshservice, which can be accessed from anywhere, fast, online, and easy to understand. With practically no training the techs were able to just pick it up and go. This was a big help in getting them to start actually using the system.

Brand Embassy is excellent for brands that utilize a great influx of traffic, though even smaller channels will surely see a ton of improved feedback by using the platform. Having the ability to approach each audience differently yet organize the results and responses together, with the option for comparison and having the report issued separately or together is a great deal better than to have to do the manual work yourself (not to mention it is not going to be as insightful nor precise).

Pros

Freshservice

  • Customized customer portal and ticketing system - We have specific information we want our customers and team to access. Freshservice allows us to have all that exactly as we want.
  • Freshchat integration - Having the chat portal integrated on our customer portal has improved our ability to communicate and quickly resolve issues. We have the chat widget on our main customer portal through Freshservice and our Moodle LMS.
  • Asset tracking and integration - we have the ability to track our assets from anywhere now. It makes field service calls so much easier since we don't have to rely on a spreadsheet on our server. We can also connect service tickets to assets so our repairs and changes are more accurate.
  • Mobile App - having the mobile app boosts our ability in the field. We can tag assets from the app to make changes and updates. We can provide the same service on the road as we can in our offices.

  • Social CRM: we appreciate this tool, because we focus on influencers a lot these days. It is important to know the person we are communicating with so we can prioritize who are we going to answer first. Influencers can cause passionate discussion and thanks to Brand Embassy we can quickly respond to them. Therefore we mark influencers in our social CRM. We also appreciate the fact that our online care team knows what the person has been dealing with lately.
  • Analysis: our colleagues sometimes want to know how their product is doing and what people say about it on social media and how much is it discussed. Thanks to Brand Embassy we can generate a simple overview of the amount of questions and comments about specific product according to our tags.
  • Simplicity: we prefer simple, yet effective tools, which Brand Embassy surely is. Our social care team does not have to switch between channels and social networks which increases their effectiveness. We also appreciate that our team can see any discussion about O2 wherever on the web, which is very useful for us as we enter the world of sport games, football and hockey. That causes passionate discussions on sport pages and online media outlets.

Cons

Freshservice

  • Maintenance of software assets : Freshservice reports the installed software, but if a device is retired, the software remains registered in the software assets. It would be better to have an option to clean it up.
  • Software assets are registered per software-release : there is no way to get an export of one software-asset at once, you have to export them per release. In case of programs like Firefox it's time consuming

  • In terms of reports that we get from Brand Embassy, it would be great to have information about the number of cases, or conversations that we have with our customers. At the moment, we have just info about number of interactions and the total workload.
  • There are options to tag every conversation, in order to track why our customers contact us. Their tag menu is a bit too small, it would be great if it was larger.

On the I.T. side, the time to ramp up and understand how FreshService operates only took a few hours. After that, it was off to the races with configuration and customization. From the start, with minimal assistance, our end users found FreshService to be incredibly intuitive. At launch, we expected most to submit tickets via email, however, our analytics has shown that end-users actually prefer the portal for managing their I.T. tickets.

The support team is highly professional and most of them I have spoken are so kind and helpful. I had booked a session for an hour to set up alerts using Workflow Automator, and in that time, the support guy helped me configure alerts, set up change management process groups, etc. Most of the other vendors will ask you to submit a separate ticket for each request.

Use case and requirements have to be very specific. Each business is different so it's very important to be as clear as possible with your initial requirements when communicating with the on-boarding/implementation team.

Alternatives Considered

Freshservice

We picked Freshservice over the others for many reasons. The first would be the ease of implementation. Another is due to the nice interface the system has. We also like the way we can push out a small piece of software to pull in the asset information for asset management. Just all around better product.
Mark Kosier | TrustRadius Reviewer

Generally I don't see huge differences between social CRM tools - it's mainly in the details of how well it's implemented and connected to your channels. For example other tools cannot easily process non-standard channels like custom made forums or have a e-mail based ticketing for private follow ups. Brand Embassy shines in this area.

Return on Investment

Freshservice

  • The service catalog has simplified and reduced inquiries about purchasing equipment, requesting forms, and identifying software that is available to campus. We estimate a 25% reduction in such inquiries
  • Canned responses and the ability to insert solutions allows our staff to spend more time supporting our users, rather than looking up answers and typing responses.
  • Using the CMDB to document infrastructure, business processes, and training material has allowed IT staff to get-up-to-speed and identify answers to questions more quickly. Additionally, the documentation is advantageous for other departments across campus so that we can show impact of business process changes.

  • + We can fully monitor every mention of our brand.
  • + We are able to respond faster and more accurately (thanks to customer history)
  • + As more employees can work all at once, we can solve more posts from different sources immediately.
