We have used Talkdesk for a few years now and have never had a problem with the service and have found the cost to be very reasonable for the level of services provided. It is so easy to use. If our agents can use it anyone can use it.

Provider Overview

Founded in 2011 by CEO Tiago Paiva, and originally launched in May of 2012, Talkdesk aims to disrupt the usual, old style legacy contact center offerings in the market. Originally spawned out of a Twilio contest, the platform that is now known as Talkdesk was built using Twilio’s API in just 10 days. The company, and platform, has since grown to support over 1,000 customers worldwide. As the next-generation, cloud-based contact center software available, Talkdesk helps bridge context with phone based support.

Talkdesk offers enterprise level contact center functionality with the advanced features users would expect, yet can still be quickly and easily deployed even without phones or any hardware. The web-based interface allows users to access and configure robust, enterprise-level functions like comprehensive reporting and seamless integrations.

With so many resources at their disposal, Talkdesk empowers contact center managers to make data-driven decisions, while empowering agents to have personalized, effective conversations with customers.

Editor’s Bottom Line

With humble beginnings, Talkdesk has grown from a simple app built in 10 days, driven by Twilio’s API for limited function. While the platform still does have a close relationship with Twilio, as the platform leverages WebRTC technology with Twilio telephony – Talkdesk is a standalone solution that revolutionizes the contact center offerings. Bringing advanced, robust and sometimes complicated contact center functions to the masses, living directly in your web-browser is the main focus of Talkdesk.

Since their start, Talkdesk has been collecting funding to help reach its goal. Starting with $450,000 from 500 Startups and one angel investor in 2011, up to $21 Million in Series A funding from DFJ, Salesforce Ventures and Storm Ventures, Talkdesk is no stranger to the industry, and even managed funding from the Salesforce. When the leading CRM provider wants in and supports your platform, it certainly says a lot – especially since Talkdesk integrates directly with CRM functionality.

As a revolutionary and unique solution in the industry, Talkdesk has gone on to win a number of awards and recognition, including the CRM solution of the Year for 2015-16 from the Cloud A wards 2016, Forbes Next Billion-Dollar Startup 2016, and even Customer Magazine’s 2015 Customer Contact Center Technology Award Winner. The solution Talkdesk provides has managed to take clunky, complicated legacy solutions and turned them into agile, simple, cost effective cloud-based platforms.

Giving back to the tech community, just as they had received funding and support in the early days, Talkdesk even went as far as to launch the Talkstart Program in October of 2015. Through this program, Talkdesk supplies technology startups with free Talkdesk software licenses to establish a foundation of supreme phone-based customer service, and sales. The provider has also gone on to include SMS and texting capabilities to the Talkdesk platform. If searching for a cloud-based, cost-effective and as simple as possible contact center software, look no further than Talkdesk.
