I love that the email program gives you a certain amount of free use before requiring a purchase. I have been able to instantly make use of the service and I know that I will continue using it under a paid plan as my company grows. I am also able to recommend it to start up clients who are working hard to add professionalism to their brand while not yet having the cash flow. Having a great email host that grows with the business is a huge benefit.
It is complicated. The email portion I use is fairly user friendly if you have a tiny bit of tech understanding. Their directions for set up are very clearly written and make it easy to figure out. But they have so many products that the site is very complex.
Makes customer management extremely easy once you get going.
Easy management and ticket assignment and that it works as an extension of other features and integrates perfectly with invoicing, CRM, etc. making the entire ZOHO Suite the preferred choice for all our ban and front end business needs.
Since it can also integrate with many other programs, there is hardly any limit in how useful the overall Suite is and Zoho Desk is an essential part of that that allows us to track internal performance as well as overall customer interaction on a single platform.
Training is well laid out and there are plenty of online resources to reference to get going.
There isn't that many... it takes a little getting used to, but once understood it is fairly straight forward.
Ticket handling could be a little better, but the question is how to get customers to open new tickets rather than replying to old tickets, and it is not really a software issue.

Organized information for supporting my customer and having their information on hand for any situation that might arise.
I use Zoho Desk every day of the week Mon-Fri on my desktop at work and the app on the weekends to monitor my queue. Overall, this is a solid ticketing system for support issues for my customers since we are an email driven company. It's very organized and is updating all the time that includes new features and performance increases.
One of the cons I have, is their support team is a bit on the slow side when it comes to responses. This could be that their policies way different then my companies but we least respond in under 24 hours. The other con is their ability to understand what you are trying to describe to them for help. Their forums are a better resource than their support email.

I want to recommend Zoho Desk to those who want to improve their performance and improve communication with the client because only if you carefully and timely serve customers they will be happy and will often turn to you.
The instruction for working in Zoho Desk was not very clear, I would like that the instruction would be more accessible to the ordinary worker and with its help, you could understand all the functions of the service.

Lasting customer relationships don’t happen by chance. In most cases, they’re the result of dedicated support teams that make themselves available to customers at all hours of the day. Zoho Desk is a web-based support and help desk solution that provides organizations with a unified view of their customers’ needs.
Zoho Desk uses a multi-channel ticket management system, along with custom reporting tools and task automation features, to make it easier for businesses to impress customers with high levels of customer service. Built to scale up and down, Zoho Desk is available for businesses of all sizes. At the industry-level, Zoho Desk is most frequently used by organizations that are involved in IT solutions, ecommerce, SaaS, consumer durables, education, and governance.
Zoho Desk is a help desk software solution for businesses. Businesses that use Zoho Desk are able to create full-featured online help desks—which include ticket management, automation, and reporting tools—with the ultimate goal of building longer-lasting, more valuable relationships with their most important customers.
Zoho Desk allows businesses to engage with their customers across multiple channels, including Twitter, Facebook, and email. Support agents are able to manage incoming tickets and handle large influxes of traffic with request management features and automated workflow options. Integrated knowledgebases, which can also be created with Zoho Desk, are one of many tools that agents are able to use to search for relevant answers to frequently asked customer queries.
Zoho Desk pulls in customer service requests from multiple channels, such as email, phone, social media, chat, self-service help center, forums and community and web forms. It lets managers setup service-level agreements. Each ticket is slapped with a due date and time based on this SLA commitment. When tickets go unanswered for an extended period of time, the software automatically alerts a set of people and can even assign the ticket to another agent.
Much of the value in using a help desk software is in improving the productivity of the team and being able to emulate incumbent processes. Zoho Desk provides flexible automation rules to accommodate various prevalent processes. Time-based action rules help in automating activities like closing inactive tickets. Notification rules keep customers informed about developments in a ticket and build transparency. Macros help agents perform a multitude of tasks together in a single click.
You only service what you sell. Customer information from a CRM system is very critical to offering customer service of any kind. It brings much-needed context to the conversations. Without this information, a ticket has no face to it. Support agents don’t know enough information about customers during the first few interactions, because they didn’t sell anything. By automatically pulling in customer information from CRM and keeping it up to date, Zoho Desk’s integration with Zoho CRM helps put tickets in the right context. Support agents can see all the information about a particular customer, complete with custom fields. Likewise, sales reps within CRM can see the latest tickets a particular customer has raised. This gives them better context about how happy the customer is, based on which they can make sales calls and build relationships further.
The ultimate metric in a customer service operation is customer happiness. By measuring that directly, Zoho Desk helps managers understand the impact of their customer service efforts. By helping track several other metrics related to the customer service operation, Zoho Desk enables managers to understand which areas to improve in order to create more customer happiness.
Zoho Desk is available for iOS and Android. Agents can answer tickets from anywhere. There’s also a feed displaying recent updates in tickets. Users can choose to follow a particular ticket, contact or account. All developments related to those show up automatically on the feed in real time. Agents can also @mention their colleagues and ask for help internally. Push notifications ensure that agents are able to maintain good response times even when they’re not at their desks.
Zoho Desk integrates with Zoho CRM and Zoho BugTracker. Zoho CRM is a web-based customer relationship management solution. Zoho BugTracker is an issue tracking service for businesses.
