Overall Satisfaction with Zoho Desk

Zoho Desk is used by our marketing department for responding to candidates' queries received through multiple platforms, like email and an embedded form on our website. We have a fellowship program so that candidates can apply online on our portal. We have widely used Zoho Desk to resolve all queries, either technical or theoretical, about filling the application for the fellowship. Earlier we were doing it on a phone call, but it was not feasible to connect all the candidates, and we faced many difficulties in handling the record.
Now we are also using its knowledge-base, which also helps candidates get FAQs on applying and the application process.
  • Give a basic ticketing platform to resolve queries received through the platform, email, or embedded forms.
  • User-friendly dashboard, which shows all the tickets' statuses.
  • We can embed support form in our websites to get queries.
  • Zoho Desk also supports a basic knowledge-base, which helps us to create FAQs.
  • Connecting with a social network like Facebook.
  • There's less customization capability in the support page, which needs to improve.
  • A feature like showing FAQs while a user is trying to create a new ticket would be helpful.
  • Over the year we have given resolution to more than 1500 tickets.
  • Now we are separating the tickets according to the departments or products.
  • Now our user can see the list of FAQs, which helps them to research their question before raising the tickets.
Zoho Desk is easy to set up for small business needs, and its dashboard is well-suited for our organization's needs. We are on a social network, which also helps us to get users' and applicants' queries through the social platform.
Another factor to start with it is its trial period, which helps us to explore the platform before making a decision to purchase.
If you don't have any platform to help resolve your customers' questions, then Zoho is the best option to start using as a small CRM. It works well as a tool where you can receive customer's queries through various platforms, like email and a support page. However, we did not find it suitable to create a big knowledge-base or FAQ's, because it doesn't have a lot of features for those purposes.
