Overall Satisfaction with Zendesk Support Suite

Zendesk is used to manage customer-reported tickets -- bugs/issues, feature requests, questions, and tasks -- it serves as the connection between our customers and our support team and allows for internal collaboration that is both customer-facing and internal or private. We also use it for cross-functional communication to bridge to our engineering ticketing system, as well as our feature request system.
  • Collaboration
  • Email Updates to customers.
  • Custom views.
  • The custom views cannot be exported to another user, which would be nice for shared accounts instead of recreating them.
  • Sometimes, responding to an email is logged as an internal comment when it is meant to be customer-facing.
  • Dashboards summarizing tickets.
  • Integrations (Aha, Jira, Email).
  • Customer communication.
  • Ticket tracking by status and date.
  • Besides our actual application, Zendesk is quite literally the most customer-facing application for our business. Customers feel engaged and have transparency.
I prefer Zendesk, though I find engineers are often in Jira. Zendesk is, in my opinion, far easier to navigate, but that might just be my personal preference and comfort with the application. Both maintain a history/record of who and what, but I think Zendesk is more intuitive, and I like that I can interface directly from the email with it.

Do you think Zendesk Suite delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Zendesk Suite's feature set?


Did Zendesk Suite live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Zendesk Suite go as expected?


Would you buy Zendesk Suite again?


For enterprise-grade ticket managing and customer communication, it is awesome. For feature tracking, it could use some work, because you can end up with a ticket being on hold while it is under consideration; or closed out and then people lose visibility on it while it is in another system.

Yes - Pretty well -- I definitely prefer the web interface, but I have made use of my phone for zendesk. It makes searching harder though.
