This Plugin allowed us to replace the entire existing system with Freshdesk and our clients do not even notice the difference. Took just a few minutes to install and switch over. Now all of our agents can be managed in one place and we have much better flow over customer support throughout the entire organization.

The WHMCS built-in support tool is good but we like using FreshDesk. With the latest updated control panel and free for unlimited agents this tool is a must. The Plugin allows us to replace the existing system with Freshdesk and our clients do not even notice the difference. Took us about 5 mins to install and start using with our clients.
