We use Desk.com to engage with our customers, provide them with self-help resources, and track and create notes related to our interactions with them.

Desk connects directly with Salesforce with many other teams in the business use. This tool did take longer to set up because of all the customization possibilities. There is a good amount of customization that needs to be completed in order to make it function correctly and create an efficient experience for your team.

It is great to be able to customize the fields according to your organization's needs, but this takes a lot of time to set up initially. It is helpful to integrate cases with related accounts, contacts, and opportunities. The cases can be easily escalated to the right queue, and the list view makes it easy to disperse the workload for teams.

Desk.com Support

Their support leaves much to be desired. They do not respond quickly and do not follow up with feature requests. There is also a lack of on-demand or live training available for the teams to use as they learn a new tool. Because there is so much customization, a lot of questions do come up regularly.

Using Desk.com

Once it is fully set up with all of the unique and necessary customizations for your organization, it becomes easier to use, but before that, it is not very user-friendly and there are not a lot of training resources available. You likely need a Salesforce admin for initial set-up who is experienced with customization.
