The most important part that we use it for is our customer service rep department and our supplier enablement department. These departments field calls from our customers to help walk them through our software, so it is extremely important that communication is very clear and that the platform is easy to use for a large number of people. The rest of the business uses it as their regular business phone. Even though they aren't on a queue they do still need to have a reliable phone that's easy and straightforward to use to get to the people they need to talk to.,Easy to manage. Talkdesk is a purely Saas solution, which makes it so we don't have to manage any physical hardware anywhere except headsets. Easy to deploy. Talkdesk turned a task that used to take days with a 3rd-party support company with our previous phones into a 30-second process that we can teach anyone to do. Easy to tie to other software.

It is used within the event sales team as we have struggled to find a system that works efficiently to make and receive calls at any location - until now! It works so well and customers receive a call centre experience no matter where our staff are working. Calls are logged automatically, calls are easy to transfer and cases auto populate with the correct and necessary details which results in fast and efficient customer response and analysis. The Talkdesk dashboard is really useful when managing our agents and monitoring call stats. It tracks service level rates and it integrates with Salesforce which is so useful to record calls and data. Such an easy to use system and extremely beneficial!,Detailed reports on call statistics within teams - useful for monitoring team performances and peak / busy times Integrates with Salesforce which is very important when logging calls and data Calls are clear and efficient,Reports could be slightly more user-friendly and easier to tweak where required,9,Improved call quality Agents are confident to make more outbound sales chases which improves their targets,BookerTalkdeskI like Talkdesk for its ability to track and record calls. I am not sure if it is my network or Talkdesk specifically, but I am frequently having to close out of it and open it back up for it to work properly. I have talked to others on my team and some have experienced the same thing while others have had no problems with that. I also find it difficult to transfer to someone else; if there are calls in the queue, they have no opportunity to set themselves to "available for transfer" before the next call is routed to them. I think it is capable of doing what we need it to do... it's just a learning process and a matter of getting things customized.We are now able to see what is driving the volume of our calls by selecting a disposition. Gives us immediate access to recorded calls. It writes back to our ticket system.,Records calls and you have immediate access to them Integrated with Zendesk Gives you the ability to select a disposition (purpose of the call),Difficult to transfer to someone else and do follow up work Sometimes I have to close out and open it back up in order for it to work It creates duplicate tickets in zendesk,8,Gives us a better idea of where the volume is coming from Saves time being able to click to call Saves time by creating tickets automatically,,GainsightSimple and easy to use!Talkdesk is being used by our customer support department and has been a huge benefit when working with our customers. Not only does it easily allow our agents to field calls with customers, but it also allows us integrate with other third party programs, like our ticketing system, to make keeping track of notes and what occurred on calls much easier.,Third party integration is my favorite feature of talks desk, as it makes tasks much easier to accomplish when you don't have to move through several different app and/or web pages. Their software application is intuitive and user friendly; it's not overly complicated and is easy to pick up with only minor computer skills Call logging is simple, yet effective, as talkdesk lets you easily track down call notes (we use this feature specifically with our third party integration with Zendesk).,Audio input/output does not seem to save your selections once you close the application, forcing you to set those each time you log in. Different color schemes would be nice to have, as we work in a darker area of our building and a dark mode would be very appreciated. While Talkdesk does integrate with third party applications, it doesn't always transition notes well from the call log, to Zendesk, forcing us to have to type out the notes a second time.,9,Has allowed our support staff to more easily keep track of calls and notes Has been easier to train new agents on the talkdesk system Integration support has been helpful with our ticketing system,NICE inContact CXone,Zendesk, Slack, BeyondTrust Remote Support (formerly Bomgar Remote Support)Works wonders for our teams!Talkdesk is currently used by three of our Client Services departments, which mainly encompasses our Support Team, Strategic Account Managers and Digital Marketing Specialists.

Rarely do we encounter outages or issues that affect all three of our departments. Easy to use. From a user and admin perspective, the system is easy to use which helps prevent hiccups in the client experience. Reporting. The built-in reporting provided gives us insight into individual and team performance, which helps us keep employees more accountable.,There are only two levels to the dispositions, which is how we categorize phone calls. Our cases are categorized using 3 levels, so additional options here would be great. We've run into some challenges with having an agent logged into more than one rotation, but receiving calls equally. I'm not sure if Talkdesk is able to support this concept.,10,It's allowed us to maintain a service level of above 90% most months since last year. We've been able to successfully train others on the team using their call monitoring options which has been immensely helpful for new hires.Game changer!We use Talkdesk for Customer Service and Sales departments.
