G2 User in Outsourcing/Offshoring

It is user friendly for the agent as well as management.

Manzur Husain S.
User in Internet

It helps us to reduce basic 'how to' queries for our website. It is also giving good user experience to new users with feature like 'tour', selfhelp etc

Clyde C.
User in Music

Freshdesk is a big improvement over handling support via email. It keeps responses from customers together and provides good tools for sharing support responsibilities with other agents. The "solutions" section is very helpful to my customers and is easier...

Awful, clunky, outdated. Hard to customize. Expensive. Does not work well on non IE browsers

Product updates have addressed our needs

They do not offer a WYSIWYG editor globally.
