If you need a competent Customer Support Software product for your enterprise you should take time to examine several solutions. It doesn’t have to be challenging, and can be as simple as matching their traits in a table like the one below. You will also get a brief idea how each product works. For example, on this page you can check Freshdesk’s overall score of 9.8 and compare it against Gigya’s score of 7.5; or Freshdesk’s user satisfaction level at 100% versus Gigya’s 97% satisfaction score. The assessment can help you spot the pros and cons of each application, and decide which one matches your requirements better. Beyond the main features, the software that is easy to understand and use is always the better option. Our team put a lot of effort to prepare reviews of all popular Customer Support Software products available on the market, but among all the ones we reviewed these three deserved our special attention: Salesforce Essentials, Freshdesk, Zendesk.

You don’t want exclusively a wide set of useful tools and scalable pricing from a popular Customer Support Software. Almost as important as key features is a trustworthy customer support. You want to make sure that when you have any questions about Freshdesk or Gigya, or you struggle with some problems, or maybe you’ll want to request a specific update or feature useful to your company you can count on a responsive and helpful customer support. See whether solutions such as phone support, tickets or live chat are provided. It’s also a major asset if you are able to enjoy personal training or at least a knowledge base you can use.
