Talkdesk

Talkdesk might not be needed for smaller companies (1-10 employees) where everyone has their own number and doesn't need to transfer calls. However, Talkdesk helps larger companies become incredibly efficient with their call routing. For our call center, Talkdesk is especially helpful because it puts callers in a queue with an option for a callback. On the internal side, we can see how many guests are in line in the queue, which helps us with understanding how many employees we need on the phone. This also helps us understand how busy we are at a certain time and tracks what's working and what's not. This also helps us track our data of how many inbound calls we have. As an Account Manager in sales with different territories, Talkdesk is especially helpful in using "ring groups." If I'm not available for a call in my territory, it will send the call to someone who is related to me to try and get an agent on the phone who has a similar knowledge set.

Zendesk Talk

This product is great when the call centers are globally dispersed and yet still need to collaborate jointly to resolve cases. The technology offered allows any call center to run efficiently with all the needs covered. on the downside, Depending on the scale of the operation and business, it may be overkill for some smaller organizations as there may be other products that will do just fine with fewer features and cheaper.

Pros

Talkdesk

  • Studio Academy - We / our team can self learn on how to address our own problems
  • Studio Building - Very easy to draft up a phone tree and have it operational in hours!
  • Onboarding - It's so easy to swap seats for Callbar and then run new members through the Academy to understand how to use the system
Tyler Neuwirth | TrustRadius Reviewer

Zendesk Talk

  • Call recording is a nice feature! It is great for training purposes and for quality assurance.
  • The metrics you get from Explore are a great insight into how the team is handling the call volumes.
  • Zendesk Talk has met most of our needs. It can be a bit unreliable at times.

Cons

Talkdesk

  • Better status page. The status page is not updated in real-time and it's really a disappointment when agents are flagging that Talkdesk is having an outage and when you check their status page, it's not updated. We create a ticket to flag this on Talkdesk and they are saying that they are aware of the issues.

Zendesk Talk

  • The lag on the phone is by far the most annoying thing with Zendesk talk due to the voice over IP.
  • Using the Reporting feature in Zendesk has never been a walk in the park. We have to customize a lot of fields and when something doesn't seem to add up, it at times feels like pulling teeth to get to the final answer of what went wrong.

It's not a 10 because we're always open to some technological, fiscal improvement that may come along. I've opted for an 8 because the product is reliable and easy to use. It fits our current needs for the most part. However, we would like to see some improvement in the reporting and easy call tracking/identification if/when questions come up regarding a particular call.

Talkdesk is seamless. Very easy to use and self-explanatory. Once shown how to navigate the web app and caliber, there is no need for a review of the information. I was a part of the initial purchase decision for Talkdesk and its usability was one of the main reasons for our purchase.

If Talkdesk had a dedicated phone support line I would have given this rating an overall 10. Their knowledge base is absolutely HUGE and at times very helpful. It's easy to search through and their customer support chat system works perfectly fine, but there are just some times that you need to speak to a human on the phone to ensure you are always on the same page.

In our experience, we have had to go through many support people then ultimately getting frustrated enough to go directly to our point of contact who then doesn't always seem to be able to assist. We tend to get the support we need when it is escalated up to me and I reach out to our point of a contact person to express our frustration.

The implementation was rather seamless. Our architect was competent and was able to guide us through the necessary critical questions to ensure our implementation aligned with the business needs. The turnaround time was rather fast. While our initial ask and setup were not complex, we were using the platform in under 3 weeks from the time we engaged the implementation services. As we have expanded our feature usage, we have had very similar experiences.

Alternatives Considered

Talkdesk

I didn't select Talkdesk, the company did, I had no choice but to embrace it, I think Five9 is somewhat better because it is 100% web-based and it is really simple to manipulate agent groups, and data exports. TD can improve on that, Team Leader licenses are very limited.

Slack and Zoom phones cannot compare because they have no ticketing systems. Zendesk Talk was the only option we considered because we were already using Zendesk for our email ticketing with customer concerns. We then expanded to using Zendesk's chatbot and then the Zendesk Talk system to keep it all integrated and streamlined.

Zendesk Talk

  • Satisfaction evaluation requests are automatically sent after the ticket is resolved, helping to increase satisfaction.
  • The best thing about Zendesk Talk is that your inquiries no longer go unattended.
  • You can enter tickets on your behalf for both verbal and phone inquiries, so if you manage them all as tickets, there will be no omissions.
