The integration with Zoho CRM is game-changing. It's so simple to set up and gives our Sales + Customer Service teams complete transparency into what the other is doing.
It's really intuitive — of all the Zoho apps, Desk is the best for ease-of-use and straightforward UI. I like it even more than Zendesk.
Powerful automation features.
Love the customer portal + knowledge base, we use it every day.
Nice little features like snippets or copy-pasting knowledge base articles mean that ticket response is a breeze.
Sometimes some of the default email templates can be a little bit funky, but that was an easy fix.

Great - and their customer service is great as well.
We got this software after using another vendor for about two years. During that time we learned what our needs were and had Zoho Desk on our shortlist. The criteria that we used was:
+ Easily integrate into the Knowledge Base (KB)
+ KB easily integrates into tickets
+ Tickets can be handled by multiple departments and permissions can be restricted to those departments
+ Single Sign On (SSO) integration for customers
+ A robust API
+ ASAP(TM?) integration that we can dump onto our website, which allows us to point directly to a particular page in the KB
+ A good mobile app (I personally use it on the iPhone)
+ Customizable reporting
~ A semi-workaround to integrate with Github (via Zoho Project)
We're looking forward to Guided Conversations that's in development right now
We look forward to additional releases
It can sometimes get too bloated on your browser because it has a lot of data under the hood, and search can be finicky at times - but it's quite manageable.
The above would not impact me choosing this platform again.

Zoho Desk has been always my tool to analyze my support tickets stats and it help me play around with the data that is generated from different reports.
Its is very useful in assigning tickets based task to team members also helps in monitoring client support tickets logged on it and retrieving all history /steps of action performed on the ticket.
It helped me to maintain different SLAs of the client and in case of breaching the SLA it raises a flag and escalation to line manager which is a very good feature and practical.
Reports and Dashboard since this is something which is beneficial in analyzing and decision making based on tickets data.
Filling data of the tickets since it was to be filled manually. Automation can help to cope up on this

I realized I need a product that will fully integrate with my Google contacts and calendar, be able to track time spent on site or on a remote support session and be able to do this without switching and spending 5 minutes trying to get all of the information together for an invoice from: contacts; reentering the same job in Invoices instead of it linking to Desk, and move on to the next client.
It was pretty easy to setup, they did have issues on their end with the custom domain pointing, but were willing to help out.
HTTPS had to be requested and is not a part of the package unless you call up and request it.
I purchased a package from Zoho – Desk and Invoicing – so I can bill clients for time spent on a service call. Calls can be a remote support session or onsite.
After trying out their product and setting everything up with just Desk, their sales pitch led me to believe that their Invoicing product would be needed to integrate with Desk in order to bill clients directly.
The company then sent me an invoice to pay for an annual subscription for Desk and Invoice. I was told multiple times that I could use it on my phone and on the web. It would led me open a timesheet and connect it to the Desk ticket. Nope. Not on the phone though I was told otherwise.
So far, everything does not work as advertised.
The support reps keep telling me that their integrations are in BETA.
BETA was never mentioned during any of the calls or email until it did NOT work as advertised. I even have screen shots of the word BETA on the screens.
I would not recommend this product and would put up an advisory on your website indicating that most of their “integrations” are in BETA.
I am further contacting my bank and the Attorney General for California.
I don’t pay for BETA software.
Is there another company that actually fulfills their sales pitches?

Overall, it is a good starter product and is helpful but a lot of tweaking is needed and the product offering is geared to pull you towards needing the Pro package. One day I may choose that but wish I could have a vanity URL for email now with a one time fee.
I like the options that are available.
The templates and features are great.
I wish I could pay a one time fee to have a vanity domain instead of needing the pro package.
Support is normally pretty good.
Complicated to setup and training is required.
