A few reasons why companies choose Zendesk vs Freshdesk

For the past two years, we’ve been named a market leader by Gartner, but we’re not here to brag about that. What we will brag about: our industry-defining product, robust reporting, and track record of innovation. Besides, our 95% CSAT score speaks for itself.

What makes Zendesk different


Easier to use for you and your customers

Customer relationships are complicated, but the tools to manage them shouldn’t be. Zendesk Support is intuitive and built with agents in mind. And set-up takes days, not months, which means less training and happier teams.


We're your success network

At Zendesk, we help companies build better customer relationships. And we practise what we preach. We have a Customer Experience team that includes Success, Service, and anything else you need to get the job done.

“Zendesk is a company that walks the talk. It's one of our closest partners…and has become our main tool in building relationships with our driver community.”

Co-founder and CEO, Easy Taxi

Better reporting and analytics

When the right data reaches the right team, customer experience turns from a cost centre into a core strategy for product, marketing, and support. With Zendesk, you can create customised reports and trend data for teams who are not actively providing support—bringing your whole business closer to your customers.

“We’ve been able to create very granular reports and dashboards. Zendesk was a system we could grow with—which was really important.”

Michael Robichaud

Manager of Support Products, Coursera

Benchmarks and industry best practices

When it comes to metrics, one size doesn’t fit all. That’s why we created the Zendesk Benchmark, with actual customer service and support interactions from more than 50,000 participating organisations in 140 countries.
