Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • I absolutely love the templates, and tagging features. Also the knowledge base was super easy to set up.

  • Extremely intuitive and easy to use. Learning to use Help Scout takes very little time at all. I enjoy the overall UI and simplicity.

  • Cons

  • - wish that the interface could be a little more customized for our specific needs - really don't have any downsides to it - it's a great product

  • The tags are helpful but they can't be exported which China makes it difficult to track or manage their use.

  • Pros

  • The interface and side menus are great and the easy of use.

  • Love the accuracy and efficiency of this software. Makes my everyday work flow so much easier and more efficient.

  • Cons

  • The navigation within the internal system can initially be a bit difficult (i.e. the naming of the tabs are not always clear), but once you know where to click, it's not too bad.

  • Background workflow good but still not as flexible as others, Salesforce service cloud for example.
