Overall Satisfaction with Freshdesk

Before Freshdesk, our customer service teams were handling enquiries from emails to multiple inboxes and Whatsapp. This meant that queries occasionally were mishandled, or there were miscommunications and missed messages between departments. Using Freshdesk not only unites all our communication into one channel, but it is easy to see conversation history with customers, as well as reporting and making it easier to liaise between departments. The chat feature has also proven to be very helpful for one of our departments, as it has reduced the number off calls we receive thanks to the bots, and the ability to handle multiple queries at one.
  • Reporting
  • Ease of use
  • Customer service and fault reporting
  • Easy to configure automations and chat bots
  • Have to go to settings to get support
  • Chat customizability is limited
  • Sometimes the tickets aren't shown in order of most recent replies
  • Streamlined processes
  • Reduced manual repetitive tasks
  • Less confusion between departments
The basic implementation was almost instant, and once we were set up, Freshdesk offered a bespoke (free) service to ensure we were getting the most out of our system. No question was too big or too silly, and help has always been quick and easy to obtain. When I struggled with the email integration, they shared articles with me and helped me through it step by step.
Freshdesk has certainly helped with customer satisfaction, as queries are handled by the right team, quickly and efficiently, with no overlap or miscommunication. The workload is more transparent, meaning that it is clear who is handling which tickets, and therefore the queries are handled faster than previously. the chat feature enables us to handle multiple enquiries at once, meaning that customer issues are resolved more quickly than they were over the phone.
