I enjoy the ease of use of the system from logging in to inputting your information. The ability to be able to tag an employee if they are waiting on a task to be completed is a nice function. Previously we were tracking this in excel and only one person could be in the checklist at a time without causing errors. With Monday.com, multiple users can be in the checklist at any given time with no issues.

Zendesk

Zendesk is a really good ticketing platform, but if one of your primary goals with a support solution is to better understand and connect with our customers, Zendesk may not be the best solution. The difficulty with getting historical context about the tickets that are submitted, and the lack of a customer profile to really provide real-time insight into how customers feel about their support experience or just overall sentiment about the organization, are a few of the reasons you may want to consider a more robust solution.

Pros

monday.com

  • Easily move columns and rows to customize your view.
  • Easily update progress status with the click of a button, and assign a task owner.
  • The bright color coding makes it easy to visually organize information and track progress at a glance.

Zendesk

  • Customisable ticketing engine - you can specify what fields should be filled on each ticket, if they are mandatory and customise what type of data needs to be entered. This ensures the right data is captured to assist resolve the query. It also means reports can be run from these fields.
  • Reporting and analytics - you can run reports based on the ticket data. This helps you understand what product features need to be improved or added, what new help content needs to be created, if particular macros need to be setup, efficiency of support team and more.
  • Integrations - Zendesk integrates with billing, CRM and other platforms so customer data is available in-app. This information assists the support team give the right information to the customer.

Cons

monday.com

  • This may already exist - but I would love a video that tells us about all the latest features.
  • I would recommend a cheaper plan for single-person use (or perhaps for a family?) I could see a teacher using this for their classroom planning.
  • A group for similar companies to connect with each other and share their use-cases would be awesome! I haven't seen any other property mgmt companies on here, but I would love to chat with any that might also be using Monday.
  • The ability to upload an excel spreadsheet *after* you've made the board and set up the automation & integrations. This would be a great time-saver for us.

Zendesk

  • They tend to move slowly to integrate new options to the API but overall are pretty responsive.. Understanding the API is a far less used part of their platform as a whole.
  • We were grandfathered into the unlimited light agents.. but I think that access has been limited as of today.

It solves all our needs the exact way we imagined it. coming across monday gave us the feeling that we designed the program ourselves to work for the use cases we had in mind.

It's the best day-to-day tool for customer care I have used in 16 years of working in the industry.Healthy happy teams get along well with the tool and I know that if I see it in use and being used well I can work with that team.

Usability

monday.com

monday.com 8.9
Based on 6 answers
The UI makes the app feel like it is a less capable system, most controls and interfaces seem unprofessional.Several features make no impact on my workflow, namely the inbox. Some of the UI elements take more screen real estate than they need. The sidebar for example: I'm on a project with 5 boards and I really don't think an entire sidebar is needed to display those, I usually collapse the sidebar because it gets in my way.The task detail view is also a bit odd to me. The only relevant information on it is the task title, but if you want to know the status, ID, author, or anything else about a task you will have to go back to the board view because the detailed view won't have those fields available.

The usability is great, but I do have to be honest and say that I still have a little trouble with the user interface sometimes. I have poor ability to differentiate between similar colors and sometimes if I am not directly in front of my screen I have trouble with the text inputs

In all the time I have used it, I have only experienced "down-time" with it once, and guess what. It was during a scheduled downtime that i forgot about which was posted at least a month in advance.

We didn't actively ask for support for monday.com, but they had automated emails with tools and things for us to consider as we started monday.com. Other than that, I wouldn't be able to speak into the overall support of monday.com. They weren't really proactive during the trial period, but rather were trying to get me to sign up for a monthly plan.

Every time I contacted them they were not only very responsive and knowledgable, but always seemed to have a positive upbeat attitude. It probably helps that we did not have significant service outages or sev 1 level issues, but even my lower severity issues were quickly answered. And the positive and upbeat attitude really made things feel comfortable.

Zendesk has tons of available material for training - videos, webinars, articles, etc. The only reason this is not a 10 is because it can be hard to figure out how to navigate to these things and find what you are looking for.

We signed up for the accounts. Created the accounts. Ran the trial version and tested it live while we were running multiple projects and found that it was fitting our needs perfectly. When the trial ended and we were asked to purchase the full version, we did. We have found other ways to use it and it's a breeze.

If you're looking for a system that can tie all your channels together, allow you to report on just about any metric in regards to customer service, use chat, and build a knowledge base/FAQ all in one, Zendesk is it

Alternatives Considered

monday.com

ClickUp is a competitor but Monday's design is much better and user experience is superior. Also, export functions are a class above those of ClickUp. Asana is trying to compete with a lot more project management apps by picking the best features and making them available to users. In this regard, it is somewhat better than Monday and can perform most if not all the functions of Monday but it comes down to personal preference and pricing in the end.
Nathan Sichilongo | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk

We have used HelpSpot for several years prior to the transition to Zendesk. Our biggest gripe was the cost and limitations on what kind of communication channels could be integrated into HelpSpot. Zendesk allows us to have multiple communication channels even for the most basic users and to build on it. With a few changes to the overall system (like better social media support for attachments etc) and inbox enhancements, it can be great.

Return on Investment

monday.com

  • I truly live in Monday.com. It's the first thing I look at when I start my day, even before emails.
  • It helps me stay organized and the rest of my team stay organized and in the loop
  • no negatives so far
Jen Sheppard | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk

  • Zendesk can help large and small companies improve their customer service capabilities. Customer service can drive repeat sales, deflect returns, and increase customer satisfaction in measurable ways.
  • Zendesk can be more expensive than alternatives, however it is a more complete product than many alternatives, so the additional features and integration should be weighed against lower cost.
