fast, friendly, secure and great attention to detail. HDM allowed us to migrate between platforms quickly with no loss of productivity
I recently was faced with the challenge of migrating from Freshdesk to Zendesk. We had around 1500 tickets and 600 contacts. After searching around for services to assist in the move I found Help Desk Migration. Their prices were super competitive, well under the other options on the market, and when I reached out to ask more, they were super helpful and quick to respond with any and all information I required.
I was especially concerned about security, HDM described their approach and I was impressed with how well thought out their process was and how respectful they were of their customer's data.
They even reminded me as soon as the migration was complete to change passwords and ensure our instance was secure. All the way through they were helpful and followed up to ensure everything was as we needed and expected. I have no hesitation in recommending HDM if you need to do a migration. Absolutely great in every respect.
Thank you, Brett!
We are happy to have you as a client!
HDM came through when Kayako couldn't. We were supposed to migrate our ticket centre through Kayako, but after a month of sandbox usage, a couple days before the migration, when we reached out to confirm the upcoming migration, they let us know the rep we were working with was no longer with the company, and that they could not complete our migration for a few months as they were rebuilding their migration engine.
HDM stepped up and helped us migrate our ticket centre without the help of Kayako, and gave us a discount as well. They came through for us when Kayako couldn't.
Ease of use
Speed of migration
Some of the knowledgebase articles were not migrated into the proper categories, but was an easy fix. Everything went into 'Source Default Folder', but it did create the other categories. Just needed to go through and change them after the fact
Doesn't show any stats during the migration to see how fast the import is going. They can let you know on the backend
Sometimes fails without any decent error message, but the team will let you know and it will pick up where it left off
Almost perfect ;-)
Almost everything is migrated, no data is lost.
You can try many times and the support is very friendly, I was able to migrate many specific tickets that I chose before.
Not that expensive.
- It's not possible to import Zendesk tags unfortunately
- Ideally all activities imported would have been attributed to "customer success" Team on my new CRM. So that I can easily filter those activities
Having a smooth transition from our old CRM to our new ticketing system.
Maintaining our old data accessible for our CS agents.
Amazing support and technical advice.
Delivery was made according to the original project schedule.
No extra charges than what was quoted.
Our custom logics were not compatible with the automated import feature. This issue was handled in a timely manner and with professionalism.
Thank you, Gauthier!
I wish you and Thule Group all the best!
Merging multiple accounts into one makes it much easier for our support staff, and in the end the saves from a single account will cover the expense of the migration in the upcoming months
The wizard was simple and straightforward to use, support response before and during was prompt
Our migration was complicated since we were moving multiple accounts into one and it exceeded the original estimate, but they worked with us to come to agreeable terms
Moving 9,000 tickets from Desk.com to Zendesk could be nerve-racking especially since you want to make sure all the various ticket types came over correctly, all the agents got correctly assigned, all the back and forth communications were there, and especially the attachments. When I had questions, support from representative and Ira was second to none, they indeed were quick to respond and guided me through the entire process. Their customer support was excellent, and they were priced very reasonably.
Our mappings were not complicated, and for the most part, I was able to map my custom fields from Desk.com over to Zendesk. It was easy to do, and I could do a sample port as many times as I needed just to ensure everything came over correctly.
Nothing comes to mind because I was told upfront of expected behavior.
It was a pleasure to work with you!
The product features is very easy to set up. The service support is always quick and accurate. And the value for the price is really worth it.
We had to do some small customization, but the price was correct. Test migration cannot be done fully, only small portions of data
The format of the data out of our old Service Desk software was unfriendly and not easy to work with. We had years of data that we needed to keep. Using this service avoided any issues. Help Desk Migration were able to customise our import to ensure that everything was mapped correctly with no loss of data. The support throughout the process was excellent and I'd like to offer him my gratitude for helping us with this project.
No major issues. We did had some minor teething problems, but this was dealt with professionally and promptly.
Thank you for your testimonial!
We wish you and your company all the best!
The customer support team were kind, professional, and efficient throughout the entire process. We changed dates of our migration on them twice, and they rolled with the punches. Great customer service.
Thank you for your kind words, Luke!
Our company was introduced to the Help Desk Migration team for a migration from Desk to Freshdesk.
We had a very large database to migrate over:
Contacts - 617 519
Organizations - 70 946
Tickets - 760 409 with a minimum of 10 notes in every ticket making a total of 9 Million records to migrate!
We had a slight hiccup with the migration however; their technical support team resolved the matter and continued with the migration with no further issues. The team I worked with was fantastic, quick to respond to any questions I had, keeping me up to date and ensuring I knew I could reach out to them with any questions or concerns.
Ease of use and the exceptional support.
I had no issues with the migration software.
The Help Desk Migration folks made our transition from Spiceworks to Jira Service Desk easy. They took care of mapping the Spiceworks fields to equivalent fields in Jira Service Desk for tickets and users. Gave me a sample migration to validate against. When it came time for the production migration, they worked within my schedule so I could keep service downtime to a minimum. They were very responsive throughout, especially impressive given the 9 hour time zone difference.
Nothing at all to dislike about this service.
Migration from our old Helpdesk software to Zendesk. Assistance in mapping fields to ensure everything came across correctly
They took care of pretty much everything for us & provided guidance. Our Zendesk has quite a lot of custom pieces in it. HDM was able to provide guidance on the best way to migrate into this.
A little more documentation about the best way to have custom fields setup and managed in the migration would speed things up. But we had a complicated setup, so wouldn't be relevant to most users.
Thank you for your review, Saul!
It was a big pleasure to perform migration for your company!
The software saved me from hours of inputting data into a spreadsheet to then send to Connectwise to hope I did it all right and that the data gets imported. It worked perfectly, it was fast, customer service was awesome (on a Sunday morning). 5 Stars!
The interface would show failures but not tell you what was wrong just that someone would be reaching out. Someone did reach out, very fast at that, just wish it told you more of what you could do to fix it, if it was something you can do.
Many thanks for your review, Jesse!
Wish you all the best!
It was fast and easy to configure our migration, and the best part was being able to quickly run a demo migration to see how it would look.
The support team is also very friendly and helpful.
Not really a con, because I'm very happy with the result and our migration was a bit unique: we were moving between two accounts on the same software so the field mapping required a bit of customization. Pretty sure we're an edge case, and cust support was very helpful with figuring out how to make it happen!
Thanks for your valuable feedback!
Help Desk Migration helped me in the migration to a new ticketing system to handle our clients' support requests. We had a very consistent ticket history in the old system, and thanks to Help Desk Migration we were able to keep this archive in the new ticketing system without a hitch.
Help Desk Migration's support was flawless. We were followed step by step with extreme professionalism and attention to detail throughout the entire migration process.
My experience with Help Desk Migration has been very positive. There's nothing I disliked.
Imported 6 years of support for us.
Did exactly what they advertised. They imported over 160,000 tickets for us from Desk.com to Zendesk. A few hiccups importing the data but they resolved quickly and were on it from start to finish. Quick support, good value and fairly priced.
Timezones are a bit further out from us (PST) but always responsive when we needed. Had a small problem paying for the service via 2Checkout but we worked it out.
Thank you, Jason!
We are very happy to have you as a client!
Pretty easy and powerful.
Features for mapping data fields are good
Step by step approach for managing the migration process is well designed
Very responsive support! The team even have made a quick product update to meet my needs in real time!
Service seems a bit overpriced
Field mapping is a bit confusing
User fields import not supported
Some fields also were not supported
Thank you, Andrei, for your feedback! We will do our best to improve user experience.
We wish you all the best!
I researched a lot to find a feasible and easy to use CRM migration tool for migration of data from Zendesk to Freshdesk. And no doubt that this is the best I found in the market so far.
- Customisations available.
- Requires less manual efforts
- Great customer support & availability
These are some of the positives from Heldesk migration. Would recommend them to others businesses struggling with CRM migration definitely.
- Customisations available.
- Requires less manual efforts
- Great customer support
- Data retrieval is slow
I want it to escape from a really really bad service to a better place easy and quickly and I did it thanks to them.
Sales - I love when I communicate with guys who knows what, how and why to sell you something
Support - When it comes down to support they do the extra steps to make sure everything is working what the support it's suppose to be in my eyes.
Product - do exactly what it says it will do
Krasimir, we are very happy to get such a wonderful testimonial. We wish you all the best!
Help Desk Migration allowed me to quickly and easily move all of our Intercom articles to Freshdesk. It simply took a few clicks and a few minutes to complete the process. Representative, the Account Manager assisting me, was very responsive and walked me through everything I needed to know.
The article migration isn't perfect because the text formatting and image sizes will need to be edited to match how they were set in Intercom.
Thank you, Angelica!
Fast and easy. It saved me countless hours trying to either manually copy articles or look for ways to export and import tickets.
Totally automated. Easy tools for field mappings. Retained all ticket histories
It would have been nice it knowledge base article links and embedded videos could have been updated a part of the migration process.
Many thanks for your review!
Your experience is valuable!
Could you contact us directly, so we could improve our process with your help?
Our experience with the guys and gals at Help Desk Migration was very professional and smooth. They knew what they had to do, asked the right questions and got to work. They delivered what we've asked of them, even when it came to custom demands like mapping certain custom fields.
They've stuck to the agreed timeline and finished with a few days to spare.
Thank you, Vlad!
It was a big pleasure to work with you!
This was great, we were worried that because it happened so quickly and easily that information would be lost in the migration. We have everything and original messages maintained their time stamp information. Very efficient and effective.
Everything was automated and we were able to keep time stamps from our original messages.
Not sure if there is anything yet but we will keep you posted if something comes up.
Thank you, Dominic!
I could migrate all important data to our new system, with minimum job.
Good support. During test migration everything did not work. Support contacted me and offered to fix all the issues.
Can't think of any. Maybe the price was a bit expensive, but considering that the development team had to make some adjusments to the implentation it was well wort it.
Thank you, Piera!
It was a pleasure to help you with the data migration!
We needed to migrate from DESK.com to FRESHDESK. I could have asked for a more intuitive, informative, and easy to use product. Pardon the expression, it was "stupid" easy.
Fantastic Service (agent was engaging, knowledgeable, and friendly)
None, the product worked flawlessly as I had expected.
Christopher, we are so happy to read your review!
We wish you all the best!
