Freshdesk vs HappyFox vs Jitbit

Freshdesk

Freshdesk is one of the most used help desk apps on the market. It is decently priced compared to others. Especially for the features that you get - it might not be very innovative, but they offer all the must-haves. Although, some things that you might expect as standard, like basic live chat features, are not supported. Garden plan is used for the comparison.

HappyFox

HappyFox is a popular cloud-based helpdesk app that handles tickets, asset management, knowledge base and live chat (as a paid add on). Like many other help desk solution it comes with "Smart rules" engine, canned responses, realtime reports etc. Can be used not just by support teams, but by HR, Marketing and other departments too.
