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

We are extremely happy with Freshdesk and can foresee using it for the next year. We might only consider using a different platform if our average daily ticket volume reaches four digits and its AI isn’t enough to handle our needs by then. While we haven’t tested this yet, we have read reviews that it’s AI capabilities are lacking.

Overall the experience of moving to Freshdesk has been very positive. The team has been very quick to learn the system and take advantage of the many features offered. The support we have received has been much better than previous systems and is one of the key drivers in why we like Freshdesk so much.

I am going to renew the subscription to the Freshdesk because this is the most cost-effective tool available in the market. I have checked other tools as well which are cheaper but do not provide the features it provides at this cost. I am also happy with the customer service they provide in terms of solving partner issues.

Freshdesk is feature rich and easy to use. The setup is intuitive and can integrate with Google, so we do not need to create accounts for new employees. The first time an employee needs to create a ticket they login with their Google account and the Freshdesk account is automatically generated.
