Overall Satisfaction with Help Scout

Help Scout is used for supporting end-users, creating FAQ/documentation & internally for customer development.
  • FAQ
  • Support ticketing
  • Reporting
  • Tagging system - too easy to create too many tags/labels, especially as new employees come on.
  • We were using spreadsheets for customer development and it caused a lot of extra work & confusion. Saved money & provided clarity.
My team used Zendesk for years and then we switched to a lighter solution.
Well suited for smaller companies who need a more simple solution (vs. Zendesk). Zendesk is also great, but only for larger businesses who need to customize a lot of the support tool.
