Overall Satisfaction with Salesforce Service Cloud

We used Service Cloud to document and manage customer issues raised by the various teams (HR, Payroll, Benefits, Tax, Legal) that interact with all levels of our clients (C-Level, managers, employees, vendors). The ability for all of our teams to capture the issues of an individual client within the same ecosystem and making that information accessible immediately for on-site and headquarter employees from laptops or cell phones greatly streamlined and enhanced our customer intelligence. We were able to present a unified voice to our client so that regardless of who from our company spoke to whomever at the client, we always knew the issues top of mind for that client.
  • Service Cloud is easy to use whether you're inputing data or trying to access it.
  • By having a simple interface and creating dashboards, reports and views customized to an individual user's needs, we were able to achieve nearly 100% adoption rate.
  • The highest praise I can give about this product is that our employees barely "felt" its existence in that it never got in the way of reaching the information or providing the information they needed. It never felt cumbersome or like it was getting in the way of doing their job.
  • Reporting could be a bit more flexible. For some data we need to export to Excel and run formulas.
  • Needs better phone system (Shoretel) integration. The app exchange app from Shoretel is very buggy and not well supported. It would be nice to have a Salesforce-owned solution with proper support.
  • Out of the box customer surveying would be great for insight into our service levels. We use an app to generate surveys but its costly and this could be a standard feature in Service Cloud.
  • We greatly reduced redundant work and streamlined cross-team workflows by using cases as a place to document and distribute tasks.
  • This led to faster delivery times and reduced errors as well as better knowledge retention.
  • We use documentation from past experiences with a client to inform us on how to treat them in future interactions. It also helps us resolve issues with other clients experiencing similar issues thus reducing the chance of making the same errors again.
  • Metrics from case entries tells us our weak points whether they're resource based, training or systems so we can reduce future incidents and deliver a higher quality level of service.
Service Cloud is just a more comprehensive solution within a great ecosystem. It was natural to use Service Cloud since we're using Sales Cloud. It's a highly adaptable product that can grow with your business and it's needs whether it's adding users or entire pieces of functionality. You don't need a highly technical developer on staff to do enhancements, although it helps.
Service Cloud is an excellent solution for businesses that have many clients and touch points across many departments. It functions as a common platform for teams that operate in different capacities and have varying levels of technical aptitude to share their intelligence and interactions with clients.

Customer Experience

It depends on what support package you buy from Salesforce. That can be good or bad. It's highly flexible to your needs pricing wise. If you have devs on staff then don't buy support. If you don't, then sfdc offers support for a cost.

It's so flexible you can make it adapt just as your business pivots and evolves. I can't think of an industry it wouldn't work in to be honest. It might not be the best tool for your specific need but it's the most versatile I've ever used in 20 years.
We've never had outages of service. When things are scheduled for maintenance it's always off hours later in the night and we are told well in advance so we can be prepared.
Yes everything loads quickly. Sometimes reports take a while to load it they time out completely which can be annoying.
