Front vs Zendesk


Front is Zendesk competitor with an all-in-one customer service platform. The familiar, collaborative interface powers service and support teams of all sizes to achieve the efficiency of a help desk with the familiarity of email at a fraction of Zendesk’s cost.

  • Familiar, inbox-like interface that brings customers and end-users delight.

  • Seamless, cross-team collaboration such as @mentions, comments, assignments, and shared drafts.

  • Multichannel support via email, SMS, live chat, Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter & more.

  • Simple and easy to learn, making for a quick and smooth onboarding process.

  • Familiar inbox-driven architecture, workflow templates, and pre-built analytics make it easy to implement, administer, and use Front.


With Zendesk’s software, support teams are siloed to a ticketing platform. Teams waste time, energy, and revenue opportunities when they don’t have what they need in one place.

  • Clunky and complex UI requiring many extra clicks.

  • Ticketing architecture leads to disjointed collaboration and limits the ability to create personalized touches.

  • Omnichannel support, where you can respond using most channel from a single ticket.

  • Onboarding requires dedicated resources and can be a tough learning curve.

  • Robust configurability for specialized admins, but this flexibility is better suited for large enterprises with complex setup needs.
