Zendesk Suite will be as simple as you want and need it to be, if you want to introduce complexity you can do it, if you want to have a very simple ticketing system you can do it overnight, you might not have the necessary metrics to proceed, but you can do it. But if you need more metrics and more intelligence over your ticket, you can do it as well!

As an agent it's very simple to use. As an admin it's also easy to use, but sometimes lacks some functionality that would be nice to have such as expanded native 2 way sync functionality for many major apps that are commonly used today like HubSpot and Salesforce.

The ability to add followers to tickets to they get updates and are in the know without the customer seeing this agent cc'd is a nice touch. This ensures additional visibility and easily following the communication without having to appear as a CC to the customer, who could accidentally remove that person in a response, thus breaking the visibility.

Zendesk provides improvement on a general basis and not per what is needed by the client. In our experience some of the features released are okay but there are always follow-ups to check if additional features can be done based on our use case. These are acknowledged, however, there are no guarantees.

I've used a half-dozen support systems in my career and Zendesk is by far the most idiosyncratic. The web interface doesn't differentiate between actions that change state and those that don't, so training customer service reps was difficult. We tried the iPad and phone apps but those didn't work at all as there was no facility to submit ticket replies.

Zendesk has a nice interface, which is really easy to use. It provides all the advantages that our sales team needs to provide the best customer service. This application provides very useful functions, which are easily used.

This is a great ticket system and provides an easy way to track communication while solving issues. The contacts section needs more to be a full fledge CRM but for support this is a great system. The autoresponder options are very beneficial and can be customized from sending detailed information or simple we have your request responses.

It is easy to use. There is nothing complicated. I trained all 80 of my area managers is 1 day and provided updated, tips, and changes regularly.

Everything is clicks not code (except single-sign). There are English language rules for workflow, adding a field. It is easier to use than Salesforce.com, but still very powerful.

This product can be taught to, used by, and retained by anyone. I have taught this product to some very computer illiterate people and they not only got it, but retained it.

Zendesk released a new agent portal about 8 months ago and the UI has been completely redesigned. The interface is now pretty slick and is significantly better than some of the competitor products I have seen.

The usability is great, but I do have to be honest and say that I still have a little trouble with the user interface sometimes. I have poor ability to differentiate between similar colors and sometimes if I am not directly in front of my screen I have trouble with the text inputs.

• The UI is very consistent across the product so training and learning how to use it are very efficient. The admin UI and the support technician UI are essentially identical, except that the admin UI provides access to more functionality. The administrator can easily provide more functionally to support staff by turning on features as appropriate. • Our knowledge base is also managed through Zendesk, and it’s very easy to assign rights to individuals for editing privileges, etc.
