I’ve tried nearly every support plugin I could find and uninstalled them one by one when I found one problem after another. Then I came across WSDesk and it was like someone had created the perfect support plugin for my needs.

    by kingcooper (verified owner)

    WSDesk is a complete in house Customer Service ticket platform for WordPress, and i have used it for over 6 months now.
    I asked Bhavna, IT customer service, to implement custom code to integrate it further with Fluent Forms PRO across two domains.
    And Bhavna and the technician have gone the extra mile to write custom code, but fix some of my accidental deletions of code, all this extra work for free.
    And WSDesk is only about US$90 per annum, much cheaper than Zendesk, GrooveHQ, or the competition.
    I absolutely recommend WSDesk, and all their after sales service.
    5 Stars from me:
