Talkdesk for users
overall, my experiences has been exemplary with talkdesk as we're able to integrate this with zendesk which is a huge plus
ease of use voip system allowing you to use not only via desktop/laptop machines, but also configure it via mobile app
sometimes, the servers just goes down where you would only know that there's a downtime by experiencing issues or by visiting the status page

Powerful phone system, though focus shifting away from startups
We needed a phone system which allowed our distributed team to take business calls on mobile numbers and not expose their personal phones. Talkdesk has empowered this use case, though we wish the apps were easier to use.
Product is full featured, including full ability to call anywhere (including internationally), digital voicemail, contact management, calling from a browser, analytics and performance statistics, and integration with CRMs. You can also receive incoming calls via phone line rather than just via data connection. Many customization options including business hours settings, which phone lines to ring in certain circumstances, and a call tree builder are also helpful.
For the longest time, Talkdesk did not have apps for iOS nor Android, but now it appears that they do as of October 2019. Even still, you need to activate the app via a technical support request, which is not a very user-friendly way to handle things. The web-browser based version occasionally hangs (nonresponsive) and a page reload is required, even though we are using a modern computer and modern browser. We've also noticed that the company's focus is shifting away from small customers and startups towards only enterprise customers, so the platform is not as easy to deploy or use for this segment as it was before.
Reasons for Choosing TalkdeskGrasshopper was not connecting all calls, meaning a customer would call us and leave a message, yet none of our agents were never rang or notified. We haven't had this problem much with Talkdesk (though, not never).

Worst experience we had
I was really happy that i found a cloud sollution for our company with lots of integrations.
The contract was made in just couple of days and we started to use the solution from day 1. The sale agent was really great.
Now, the problems started when we opened the first ticket to support which was handled in 3 or 4 days (for a call-center sollution this is extremely high). There are tickets which was never handled. Later on if you wanted a ticket to be resolved you needed to go on their facebook page and write the ticket number along with a small complain. Take a look on their facebook page, and you will see lots of complaints there along with tickets number.
After couple of months we have seen a really high raise in our cost and we knew that something is not normal. After a small investigation we discovered that we have been overcharged with over 3000$ in 4-5 months. After an intern audit which was done in over 6 weeks by Talkdesk, we have recieved the money back to our talkdesk account. The fun part is that we cannot use the money which was taken illegaly for paying the monthly services, they need additional money.
This is totally unacceptable! Anyway, it was a lot of friction between us. We even try to contact the CEO of TalkdDesk on Linkedin which by the way didnt't even reply to our problem.
Talkdesk was the worst experience in 8 years since i have started the company. Think twice before you will use their services.
Nice app, nice design, easy to use, good quality of sound.
Support and Billing needs to much time to reply. The billing system is not transparent at all. You cannot see the cost of each call in your dashboard. You never know when you will be overcharged. Nobody cares about you after you have signed the contract. They are interested only in your money.
Response from Talkdesk
We're really sorry about your experience, and we definitely agree we could have done a much better job in this case. In the course of this year, we've significantly grown the Talkdesk team, switched to a new billing system, and gone from 2 people working in support, to over 30. We're now answering most support enquiries within a few hours, and satisfaction rates are very high. We're available 24 hours a day during the week to assist our customers. We've replied directly to you specifically addressing the final concern you had, and you've now told us you consider the problem solved. We hope you continue to stay with us, but if you do decide to leave we understand and we'll make it as easy as possible for you to move elsewhere.

Talkdesk is an excellent app that provides exceptional customer service
Talkdesk is a comprehensive and user-friendly contact center software that provides businesses with the tools they need to deliver exceptional customer service. Its omnichannel support, customizability, integration capabilities, and reporting and analytics make it an excellent choice for businesses of all sizes.
Talkdesk is easy to set up and use, even for those with limited technical knowledge. The user interface is intuitive and easy to navigate, and agents can easily switch between channels. Talkdesk supports voice, email, chat, and social media channels, allowing businesses to provide support on multiple platforms.Talkdesk is highly customizable, allowing businesses to tailor the software to their specific needs.

I like Talkdesk for enhancing customer service, and I do not have any specific dislike about it. However I can mention a couple of areas that the software can be enhanced in. Talkdesk does not offer some advanced features that other contact center software may provide, such as speech analytics or AI-powered chatbots.Some features, such as the chat widget, are not as customizable as other customer service tools, limiting businesses' ability to tailor the software to their needs.
