Share Your Experience! Customer Facing Service Desk Offering

Philly AUG Members

I am doing some informal research. Are you in a company (or have customers/clients who are) that utilize Jira for development, but track customer issues with something like FreshDesk, Oracle Service Cloud/Service Now, or some other tool?

What is the reason that they have utilized that solution as opposed to Jira Service Desk? Is there a feature gap? Is their solution so large and integrated in their processes and procedures that it's like the US Financial Crisis (Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac) years ago and it's achieved a status of "too big to fail?" or is it just because they "don't know any better?", aka they don't know what Jira Service Desk is or what it offers?

I'd love to know your experiences!

Hi Russell,

Our company uses Service Desk for some of our customers.  But other customers are on Zendesk and moving to Salesforce ServiceCloud.   One of the missing features in the lack of a forum, perusal of documentation that is available in both those aforementioned products but not available in Service Desk.  Although Service Desk can pop-up small articles, it's not the same as being able to search for how-to articles and KB.  If only Atlassian would work more closely with their Confluence team to provide such a feature WITHOUT having to buy confluence licenses for service desk customers.

Hope that helps..


@Susan_Hauth__Jira_Queen_ That is FANTASTIC insight! That would DEFINITELY be a good 'add' for Atlassian to integrate!
