Front does customer support better than Freshdesk

Top teams ditch Freshdesk for Front — the customer communication hub that beats traditional help desks with a new approach to customer service. You won’t have to choose between efficiency and keeping the human touch.

How we stack up


Front is the modern solution to customer service. Its familiar, collaborative interface powers support teams of all sizes to treat customers like humans, not tickets.

  • One hub for all customer and internal communication

  • Powerful collaboration tools, like the ability to partner on customer cases

  • Comprehensive email management features with shared inboxes, collaborative email, and campaigns

  • Personalization options that show customers they’re more than a number

  • Real-time, deeper analytics for SLAs, inbox insights, and performance metrics


Teams waste time, energy, and revenue opportunities when they don’t have what they need in one place. Your customers will feel the headache too.

  • No native SMS support

  • Restricted collaboration tools for non-paid users

  • Lack of support for both shared and individual email inboxes

  • Ticketing structure limits ability to create personalized experiences for customers

  • Trailing, paid-only access to shallow metrics and insights

8,000+ companies delight customers with Front
