Well Organized Ticketing Solution.

  • We can assign the workload to specific teams for faster resolution of the issues.
  • Our clients get automated responses that their query has been received and our team is working on finding the immediate resolution. Which keeps them patient enough to wait until an IT specialist can get back to them.

  • Tasks are all being handled by the same agent which gives us ownership right the way through
  • All interactions of the tasks are kept together in one place
  • Tasks can be easily reassigned to another more suitable agent, escalated or progressed once one part of the task has been completed.

  • Zendesk has allowed a more fluid approach to answering emails; organizing them and allowing agents to assign themselves work (or the manager to assign).
  • Zendesk allows our online chats to be ticketed for easy access, research, and quality assurance purposes.
  • For my team, Zendesk integration allows us to use just one platform to access all we need.

A great tool for small to medium-sized companies who want a robust tool to offer multi-channel support

  • Zendesk has allowed us to create a support infrastructure for a relatively low cost, allowing us to spend our money on hiring great agents who work with the tool.
  • Integrating other tools into Zendesk is easy and allows our agents to work more efficiently, reducing the touches they perform and the costs associated with that.

  • Obviously, we couldn't do the work we do without utilizing Zendesk
  • While I don't have the actual numbers- we handled over thousands of tickets in 2018 and were able to keep the Customer updated as we tended to their tickets in a timely manner.

An Honest, End-User Review of Zendesk

Score 7 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • The ability to track progress on customer support requests in one ticket reduces time spent with back and forth communications.
  • Unfortunately the lack of historical insight increase handle time, which negatively impacts overall service time.

One of the best support desk apps money can buy

  • Overall, I would say Zendesk has had a very positive impact on ROI. If we tried to use free tools to manage support tickets, we would lose visibility of tickets, lack prioritisation, double handle tickets, misplace attachments/details and miss out on ticket reporting.

Zendesk is our hub for knowing our customers and being customer driven in our business

Score 10 out of 10

Return on Investment

  • Zendesk allows us to manage a large influx of customer created tickets, auto generated tickets, customer success and technical service tickets with a very small core group of support agents. (able to ramp our tools instead of our headcount)
  • In our case 40% of our support can be solved in one transaction with the user because we have been able to integrate a number of tools to allow the user to submit screenshots and markup with detailed descriptions, extract their local system data and be able to send them on their way with a solution fast. (Quality submissions reduce the number of back and forth with the customer)
  • Zendesk is one of the special ingredients to our very high rated support response time. (Fast through put)

The Pros and Cons of Zendesk - A Manager's Perspective

Score 9 out of 10
Vetted Review
Verified User
Review Source

Return on Investment

  • Using Zendesk has given our managers a more holistic view of the support desk process. Prior to this, most managers did not have any way of tracking or reviewing support desk resolutions.
  • Zendesk has improved our ability to handle customer queries. We are now more organized and aware of what channels our customers use to communicate with us and can handle more queries more effectively.
  • Our cost per support staff vs profit per supported user has been reduced. Previously we paid 30% more for subscription fees but with Zendesk, our cost has been cut and productivity has been increased across teams.
