The Freshest of Callers!

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source
Freshcaller is currently being used in our environment as a call manager for our IT Help Desk. We have a number that users are able to call into for assistance and the next available analyst is able to answer the call and assist with any issues the end-users are experiencing.
  • IVR
  • Call management
  • Forwarding
  • Holiday schedling
  • Call rotation
  • Caller ID
Freshcaller is pretty straightforward with a lot of the settings and a fairly simple setup process. What it does well allows you to set up a number where you centralize incoming calls and route them properly. The routing could be a bit better but still works. Holiday and early closing days are not the easiest to manage.

Freshcaller is used by our inside sales and account management team. We recently switched from a hard phone to a softphone and I wanted to use software that gave my analytics on call metrics. It's also helpful that we use FreshSales as our CRM so the integrations there were obviously very smooth.
  • Call metrics.
  • Multiple users.
  • Custom voicemails.
  • Integration into Freshsales.
  • The UX and UI could use an upgrade.
  • The process could be better when importing a hard line into the system.
  • We could use more additional reporting features.
If you're looking to have your team make outbound calls to leads, then this software is really well suited. You can simply go through your call list and make the dials really effectively. As a manager, it's really helpful to track how long our team members have been on the phone and you can even tag it so that you can track call time to a particular project or client.

Not Recommended - Unless you have FreshDesk and a very small team

Freshcaller was previously used by my organization as part of an add-in feature to FreshDesk, a CRM developed by the parent company FreshWorks. It was primarily utilized by the Customer Support team to route incoming calls to support agents and to generate tickets into our ticket management system for tracking and resolving issues and requests. It was to bring integration of the phone channel into the ticketing system so agents would not have to be relied on to generate tickets for phone calls in a timely manner.
  • Phone system integrates with FreshDesk easily
  • VoIP service was fairly clear
  • Setup and configuration of call features was fairly easy to figure out, and documentation was available for areas that were not easy to understand
  • Cost - the system was felt to be way overpriced for the feature-set it provided. For the cost of 10 support agents, I could engage with a full-blown VoIP UCaaS provider to support 20-30 users.
  • The system was dependent on the Amazon Web Services system, which was prone to outages, and as it was outsourced by Freshworks to Amazon, resolution time did not have clear SLAs.
  • Non-US support - any issues encountered with the system would go through international channels which decreased resolution time depending on when the development team was available.
  • Call reliability was questionable - sometimes agents would have ringing devices that would have no one on the other end - other times calls would be dropped without explanation.
If you have a very small group of representatives that are strictly using FreshDesk as their ticket management system that needs to have call integration, I can see this solution working - but from a cost perspective, there are better options, even if they lack the tight integration between FreshWorks products. I am struggling to find scenarios other than above that Freshcaller is well suited.
