Overall Satisfaction with Freshservice

Freshservice is used across the entire organization. It was first implemented by the IT department but after 2 years has evolved into a full corporate infrastructure support platform. It provides a single place to find support for all infrastructure needs on a global scale.

Pros

  • Low/No code automation.
  • Easy to navigate GUI.
  • Robust feature set and native integrations.

Cons

  • Ability to add notes into workflows.
  • More options for conditions in automations.
  • Improved efficiency of corporate infrastructure teams.
  • Improved metric and data analysis.
  • Improved collaboration and communication.
Freshservice's cost/feature ratio was by far the best compared to the other solutions. Better UI, more robust automation features that are no/low code, full end to end service management platform for a global enterprise.

Do you think Freshservice delivers good value for the price?

Did implementation of Freshservice go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Freshservice again?

Yes

The Okta Identity Cloud, Google Workspace (formerly G Suite), Slack
Freshservice is well suited in most support scenarios that we have encountered. Easy to use interface, intuitive workflow automations, and native analytics suite have all been very useful. It's less appropriate for project management, especially with digital/web development.

Evaluating Freshservice and Competitors

Yes - HappyFox ticketing/support solution. HappyFox was not geared toward a global organization and lacked automation and reporting/analytics features that our organization needed to expand our level of service.
  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
The native functionality was by far the best in our comparisons with other platforms. ServiceNow was the closest competitor, but it was nearly 10x the cost of Freshservice.
I wouldn't change anything about our evaluation/selection process.

Freshservice Implementation

Use case and requirements have to be very specific. Each business is different so it's very important to be as clear as possible with your initial requirements when communicating with the on-boarding/implementation team.
Yes - 
  • User/agent creation.
  • Agent group creation.
  • Custom form creation.
  • Custom application creation.
  • Workflow/automation setup.
Change management was minimal

Freshservice Support

Freshservice support is always timely, professional and polite. They always make themselves available and we have an assigned customer success manager and technical contact that are bookable and readily available.

None
No. As far as I know there is no premium support options. The level of support we have with our current subscription is more than satisfactory.
Each time I reach out for support it is an exceptional experience!

Using Freshservice

Easy to navigate and use GUI. We have many infrastructure team members from various departments using Freshservice and their on-boarding and training was very straightforward and we have not received much, if any negative feedback from non-technology users in regards to overall usability, interface or functionality.
ProsCons
Like to use
Relatively simple
Easy to use
Technical support not required
Well integrated
Consistent
Quick to learn
Convenient
Feel confident using
Familiar
None
  • Workflow/automation creation.
  • Creating requestable, repeatable service request items.
Yes - It works very well for on the go usage. Full administrative control is limited to desktop, but that's to be expected.
