Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

easy to use, simple to manage, but has enough customisation to allow a range of automations and canned responses. The canned responses and ticket categorisation automations save a lot of manual work. If you want to improve productivity i would definitely recommend using Freshdesk helpdesk system. It runs in a web browser so doesn't require a lot of overhead

In my experience, we had a pretty rough start with Freshdesk. No continuity with our representatives, being promised features (in Freshsales) that never came to fruition until 2 years later, it was as if nobody was listening and I was very concerned that some of my requests were so foreign. We're just a small company and there's no way we were the only company that wanted certain features. Our implementation should have been more hands-on with someone(a single individual who had studied the hours and hours on sales calls I'd had in testing out the system) who really listened to our use case and was prepared to guide us accordingly instead of trying to provide the rote onboarding delivery.

I gave a 9 but in many cases, it would be a 10. We are using the Multiple Product Freshdesk's features, and this was a little challenging to implement, just a heads-up for those who would like to use that feature. Mind you; the vendor was very helpful during this implementation.

It's hard for me to speak in detail about implementation since I don't overlook that part of the business, what I do know, however, is that on the day my business partner said we were getting, we got it, and were using it the very next day. Knowing my business partner like I do, if there were any problems I'd have heard about them, several times, and with increased frustration. His silence tells me all I need to know. Since then, there's been absolutely no problems whatsoever.

I've been using Freshdesk, they're a great ticketing platform and system and have some of the lowest pricing out there. It was actually easy to set up & use. They also seem to be a company that cares about its customers' experience, which is really proactive for any company. Overall Great Platform

They worked closely with our team to make sure we set up our system in a logical and efficient manner. They new exactly the questions to ask us to help us with the implementation set up. I would recommend their professional team to any company looking for top industry talent and execution.

I like the product's user-friendliness, even though I haven't explored it 100%. I love the capabilities for raising and managing support tickets, the RBAC model for the agents, as well as the customization capabilities and knowledge base section as a final touch. I have especially seen ROI for the time it takes to manage the tickets, communication, and monthly reports. Reporting capabilities have tremendous worth on their own.

Our implementation was very seamless and well organized. It took us roughly 4 months to be integrated on Freshdesk and we also had to migrate from a competitor platform (Zendesk). The Freshdesk team was able to import a good chunk of our historical tickets that were on the Zendesk platform so that we could continue to keep records of past client issues/questions.

Because I am a satisfied user I have used this application for many years to handle client issues it is very effective late from when I was getting notifications whenever someone is raising or updating an incident which was associated with me it help me to collaborate with my team without letting the client know against the specific incident

For the three years of using and implementing Freshdesk in the company, it has progressed massively. I can still remember that the features it had before are nothing compared to now. It has a lot of app integration which makes system communications effective and easier. Everything in the business now complements Freshdesk. The processes and workflows we have is the best fit with Freshdesk.

I have been using the Freshdesk Self-service desk for close to 3 years now as an Admin of the instance. During the period, I have sought help from the support team of Freshworks a lot of times for planning and developing implementation strategies, setting up and improving automation, business reviews, and for training and development purposes. I also received great help from the Freshworks technical team for projects related to the integration of Freshdesk with a couple of other market apps/tools and the in-house CRM. I really appreciate the help that Freshworks support offer to ensure perpetual development and thus I want to send Kudos to the team and strongly recommend SMEs and even larger organizations to try the beautiful Customer-Focused solutions that Freshworks offer.

Setting everything up was very intuitive, although it's worth mentioning this is through the perspective of a seasoned IT technician. We've integrated everything from email and domain support to Facebook and Twitter, we've customized automatic replies, configured automation rules and so forth, all of these without having to contact Freshdesk support even once.
