Finally solves the problem of answering frequently asked questions

Efficiency of resources for a small organization that did not break the bank.

Pros

You are able to customize Spoke to provide answers to the most commonly asked questions at your organization - from where are the light bulbs to how to host a meeting. It was fun to set up as a team and anticipate the questions that employees would want to ask and the software learns as it goes along and just gets better at its job.

Cons

A bit labor intensive on the front end to set up, but was a fun task to do as a team and is so, so worth it!

Spoke Has Been Amazing!

Pros

I love how intuitive the platform is to use. It takes little to no training and it learns the material so quickly! It's like having a personalized bot right at your fingertips. Despite the fact that it's new and unfamiliar technology to most of the company, they embraced it immediately because of its sheer simplicity.

Cons

I honestly can't think of any downsides that aren't already on the future product roadmap! Spoke is amazing!

So far this seems to be just what we were looking for to help reduce repetition and wasted time!

We are new to Spoke but we are anticipating increased response times, clarified work flow and a reduction in wasted time and effort with repeat questions. Using this product well should also help to shift office culture to be more efficient with their first inquiry steps and more knowledge-able about internal departmental processes different than their own.

Pros

We LOVE that we get to control the knowledge-base so effectively. We also love that this helps us see one another's workflow so that we can be sure all needs are getting met equally.

Cons

We would like some more back-end boundary restrictions built in so that we can control which populations in our entire user group can see which information, (i.e. separate knowledge-base for staff, students, etc.)

Made it fun to build out our knowledge base

Pros

Great for remote teams. Easy to onboard. Multi-channel support. Flexible query engine. Great customer support.

Needs more robust onboarding tutorials, quick responses, feedback controls. Needs integration with cloud storage like Dropbox.

Spoke has changed the way I triage and respond to help desk tickets

Pros

The best part of Spoke is that with their AI and ML it has dramatically reduced the number of tickets that make it to my door. Through the learning features of the tool it can serve up answers from our KB directly to my employees without requiring any input from me.

Cons

There is little to not like about Spoke. Since it is such an early company there are definitely some deltas between mature ticketing systems and Spoke, however they are actively working on adding features.

The Best Transition I've Ever Had Help With!

Cutting out some of the basic tickets helps save me and my team time by almost having an extra set of hands.

Pros

AI does help answer tickets, users can close their own tickets, the built in knowledge base is great.

Cons

At the current time there's not much info on metrics or tickets tied to inventory items such as computers /printers.

Very simple to use and a great addition to our company!

Ease of use and helps answer questions for staff.

Pros

I enjoy the ease of use and that it's user friendly. I think it works great to interact staff and management.

Cons

I think that possibly sending links to staff that will not go directly to junk mail. Maybe discuss that obstacle when introducing the product.

Great customer service, easy to use

Pros

The simplicity of the product and ease of implementation. Our customer service rep, Riciel, is very responsive and always willing to go above and beyond.

Cons

There are a few small things which have been difficult such as the welcome email always being routed to our junk email, users not being alerted when I reply to their requests.

Implementation was almost too easy.

Knowledgebase management, Improved customer service Training content management.

Pros

Easy to use software, seamlessly communicates with the Slack platform, which contributes to the quick ramp-up time. Our end users enjoy all that Spoke has to offer.

Cons

Spoke is in an infancy. It has the capability to become a great knowledge base, with constant communication between the Spoke team and it's customers, this software has staying power.

Outstanding. A very targeted software that fits a specific need perfectly.

We get a intuitive tool, fully managed by the awesome Spoke team, that allows our organization to centralize domain knowledge that would otherwise be horded and silo-ed by teams and team members. It is an excellent training and teaching tool to streamline users needs for information. Spoke gives time back to our users who would be otherwise burdened with a variety of questions during ramp up and team movements.

Pros

The software is an excellent approach to managing requests and knowledge. We utilize Spoke to centralize domain knowledge that would otherwise be lost during a turn over or that needs to be communicated to a variety of users.

Assigning teams, building out KB articles and letting users generate content is very simple.

Cons

The only con of this software is the approach is so novel to many of our users that there has been a steep learning curve in documenting their domain knowledge using the tool. It is simple to use and operate but our users are use to silo-ed knowledge that using Spoke has been a big change for them.

Overall experience has been positive. Love the product!

Unified support processes and a 'ticketing' system that doesn't make me want to claw my eyes out.

Pros

Intelligently puts all support requests in one place. This is life changing. We are able to help shape the future of the product with feature requests.

Cons

There is a lack of slack integration, but we know they're actively working on it so I'm pleased there.

It's been a dream! Spoke gives our ops team time back by answering staff's questions for us!

Pros

Customer service is top notch, they made implementation so easy, it's easy to use, Slack integration

Cons

No real complaints, just excited to see the tool get smarter! Sometimes there are links to work out, but customer service is so excellent that it's not really a problem.

Total time saver!

Time saving! And an assistant that makes sure everything gets assigned and completed.

Pros

It takes all of the requests that an IT/Admin/Maintenance team normally gets and assigns them ensuring that nothing falls through the cracks and that time is not wasted delegating.

Cons

It's definitely still in it's infancy, but it appears that their team is quickly building out new features and making it better!
