Worked already with other help desk extensions from competitors.
HDU v.2 was good but HDU v3 is really great. You have good overview about the customer, his orders in the past , his contact address and many more information so it is possible to evaluate the customer and to give a precise response to his inquiry.

I do not like to spend money on software but that one I do not regret to invest any penny I have spent for it.
Thanks aheadworks team.

According to our pretty long-term studies it is the best Magento extension of that functionality. We have been using it for several months and now we have an apple-pie order in our multiple tickets. It took some time to handle the workflow, but now it is seamless. We definitely advise this extension for the companies, which have to work with multiple customers appeals.

Before ordering this solution we looked at a lot of trouble ticket modules for Magento customer care, but went with Help Desk Ultimate because it integrates very well into the store and you do not need to use any other external software. This is especially useful if you need to enhance the satisfaction level of your clients.
I believe that these guys really understand the online/retail workflow and it is shown in the design of their software. The extension covers all the bases with a wide range of user-friendly admin features.
We highly recommend this extension.

This review is easy. You have to have a customer support function on your website, and Help Desk Ultimate is the one to install. Many ticketing modules are awkward for both customers and admin, buy HDU is easy on both. Fundamentally it does all the right things, and in addition, email parsing is an great feature saving time and duplication of work, and/or eliminating missing emailed support requests.

I am not a techie and I was scared to purchase an extension fearing it has issues and I may have bought a lemon. Moreover mine is Enterprise Edition and it costs a bomb. I paid for professional installation and Aheadworks was really quick to install it. Within 5 hours, everything was done.

I did a test run of the system and presto, it is working great...! My operations team have asked a lot of questions and Helpdesk was able to be configured to their needs.

To Aheadworks, thanks very much for your installation. It was great, painless and efficient! Our team has started using the Helpdesk Ultimate and I am going for the next extension soon! Worth every price!

We've been using this for a couple of months now and my staff absolutely love it. Such a great way to make sure that things are not falling through the cracks. Tickets can be assigned to different departments and customers will be informed of changes and can login any time and check the status of the ticket all the way through the process. We use it for complaints, misships, returns, suggestions, site problems, and many other things. In another couple of months, I doubt any of us will remember what life was like before HDU!

A Massive Time Saver

Review by Jeremy | Dec 1, 2011

This module is a must-have for any successful magento business. The days of managing customers via email are gone. It's great to have tickets or contact forms our customers fill out automatically attach to their account and/or Order Number. It saves on average 1-2 minutes per customer when we have to deal with issues. That equates out to be a lot of saved time and money throughout the day for our Customer Support Team.

Aheadworks is quick to answer questions about their modules and quick to resolve issues. IF aheadworks doesn't make it, you typically don't need it :)

We only had email template issue and resolved it eventually. We have our own dev team. Originally, we were going to create a ticket system by integrating bugzilla and Magento. But this Help Desk module is much easier. One of the best modules by AW. Thanks.

Although we are a small company, messages from the customers used to fall between chairs. Not so anymore. We are very pleased with this stable product. It might look somewhat overkill with help-desk, issue number etc, but it is well worth it. Now we know for sure if we have replied a customer (and what the reply was!).
Also the different states you can put an issue in is very helpful.

What we are missing is that attachments from customers are lost.

In sum: We recommend this extension.

Help Desk is Great

Review by Boba | Jun 22, 2010

Help Desk Ultimate
Quality
I have purchased 4 extensions from AheadWorks, and I am very satisfied with both the extensions and the support I have received.

Help Desk is a great investment for our store. Customers are already accustomed to "submitting a ticket" when they have a problem, so they will look for a similar function on your site. Previously we used a free ticket system, but it was not integrated with Magento and required customers to open a a different page.

We paid the money for AheadWorks's Help Desk, and now if a customer submits a ticket that says only "where is my order?", the Help Desk system will show us all orders associated with that customer, so we can help him more quickly.

We do not use it yet to manage all incoming emails that we receive, just because the volume of our emails is not great enough to require this, but we will certainly use this feature in the future to help us stay organized.

Help Desk is great overall!

Makes support EASIER!

Review by Scott | May 17, 2010

Great extension, no problems setting up or configuring. Easy to administer without having to go through tons of code.

If your site has a high volume of support requests you simply MUST have this extension. Do yourself a favor and also purchase the knowledgebase extension too. While aheadWorks hasn't yet "hooked" them together, allowing customers to help themselves with the Knowledgebase then submit tickets and track them online is invaluable.

Feature Request for next version:
- Ability to hook the knowledge base into the helpdesk so knowledge base articles are scanned for keywords (and potential answers are displayed) BEFORE the ticket is actually submitted. I have that setup on my non-magento site and it's cut my support requests down by 65%

I did my homework and research. I wanted to make sure I got a support ticket system that not only did what I needed but would be around for future updates of Magento and future plugin improvements. Ahead Works is a company that knows its stuff when it comes to Magento and making quality plugins. This plugin not only provides support tickets but a messaging system that is vital for good customer relations. Ahead Works sends out updates of their plugins when additional features are added or Magento upgrades. They provide great support and installation directions that are easy to understand. Hands down the best from the best Magento add-on company.

Outstanding App for any Ecommerce Site

Review by Brian - www.Firewalls.com | Jul 29, 2009

Help Desk Ultimate
Quality
We were a bit skeptical about implementing this mod because we do not have a need for a "help desk" (customers do not need direct support from us since we simply sell and ship a product.)

However, after implementing the mod we were surprised to see the customer use the app for asking questions about their orders, getting upgrades and other sales functions.

As with all mods from Aheadworks the installation was quick and painless. No core files were changed, not HTML / PHP copy/paste code snippets.... just install and go.

For the price we would recommend this to anyone running an Magento site. Your customers will thank you because of the professionalism you will display and ease of answering customer concerns.
