Zendesk is a great ticketing system!

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.

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 is more than a support platform - it's a path to customer support success.

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.

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.

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.

Awesome product. Great UI.

• 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.
