Overall Satisfaction with Salesforce Service Cloud
Service Cloud is being attempted to be used as a customer facing support tool. It does not solve any problems and in fact creates more as it is not a proper tool to be used for customer facing support inquiries. This is being used by a few teams within my company and others are trying to expand its usage.
- It has caused team infighting.
- It has created more problems than solved them.
Salesforce is lightyears behind Zendesk. You have to be trained as a Salesforce admin to do anything, while Zendesk takes minutes to set up and is actually customer friendly. There are not native telephony options within Salesforce and the tools you use to integrate are handled through other companies. If you have a support issue you have to reach out to a separate company, which is worthless.
