Happyfox is changing the way helpdesk solutions run.

5.0 4 years ago

Pros:

First ,I have to commend the Happyfox team for running a good and effective support department. We switched to Happyfox in January and the experience so far , has been impressive. Setup time was a breeze ,and the support team were on hand to guide us through all hurdles during the first few weeks. I like how every conversation from emails ,social media messages ,voice calls etc are converted into tickets which we can track and respond to ,within the Happyfox interface.While making it easy to track key customer service metrics like first response time, time spent by each staff on tickets etc I will say Happyfox is changing the look ,function and feel of helpdesk solutions and I love this revolution.

Cons:

It is normal when trying a new innovative service to see it as all perfect. At this point, I see Happyfox as perfect,maybe I will find NEGATIVES as my organization continue using Happyfox.

HappyFox Help Desk Review

5.0 5 months ago

Comments: Happy Fox is an incredible ticketing solution and I cannot recommend it enough. For the price I do not think that it can be beaten.

Pros:

What I like most about Happy Fox Help Desk is how easy it is to customize. You can tailor the help desk home page exactly to your liking. Not only can you customize the appearance, but it is also extremely simple to customize the options/dropdown menus that our users select when they are submitting a ticket.

Cons:

I wish there was an alerts button for the recent tickets that you have been tagged on. Currently, there is no notifications tab to see all of the tickets with recent activity that applies to you.

Alternatives Considered: Zendesk Suite

Switched From: SysAid

Reasons for Switching to HappyFox Help Desk: Price and because Happy Fox seemed geared towards education.

HappyFox Help Desk - Best for ticketing system

4.0 last month New

Pros:

Happyfox has turned out to be a boon for us. Our task mangement became very easy after installation. We get clients requests on Happyfox which we are able to manage and resolve effectively. It has great user interface and customer support was incredible during installation and troubleshoot.

Cons:

There is nothing to point out here. Just one suggestion to include insights about tickets like how many tickets closed, in how much time, who was the most effective performer, etc. This will also help in improving team performance.

DO NOT PURCHASE HAPPYFOX

1.0 6 years ago

Comments: We have had a most unfortunately experience with Happyfox, We contacted them as their product suited our requirements. About us:
We own 3 sales based businesses and are share holders major in another 2, now Happyfox do not know that we own several businesses, nor do they know that we are looking for a platform to roll out across the entire brand. Having a platform like happyfox is an imperative part of owning a sales based business. We contacted Happyfox regarding implementing Desk and Chat for our the two directors in one of our businesses. We sent a business email outlining research, potential opportunities for both businesses and also a implementation strategy for rolling out happyfox.
Response:
10 days later, we received a generic email, that was a response from the head of sales that clearly hadn't read our email. 10 days later, now for a communication platform alarm bells are RINGING. If any of our consultants in anyone of our businesses responded to a potential client 10 days after the initial enquire, I would most definitely say they are not cut out for sales. Not only was the response incredibly late, the response itself as mentioned was generic and a completely erratic response offering a free trial. Which would be great usually, however we clearly put together a implementation plan for the HEAD of sales to read through.
As a potential new client, you are left under valued, like your just another sale. We contacted the head of sales and requested the details of whom we could lodge a complaint to. As a business owner we grow as a business when someone leaves negative feedback. Its an imperative part of development that you dont want to hear, but when someones offering constructive feedback our ears as owners are open. Its an area we can potentially improve so the issue doesn't arise. Or if it does, then a action plan is in place. So instead of responding to our FB message, direct email, email to support and even a LinkenIn message that have chosen to completely ignore us.

Pros:

Great looking product Good website Good information

Cons:

Bad customer service Ridiculous email response times Failure to have a negative feedback process in place Happyfox treat you like your just another sale Undervalue you as a customer Generic responses Impersonal service (When you actually receive it) Mail track is a wonderful tool which enables you to know when someone reads your email. If you are going to read it, respond.
