Great magento extentions with usefull and flexible/adjustable functionality, and the much more important thing - outstanding, or i should say, awesome customer support.

Great extension and Support Sergio review of Help Desk MX (Posted on May 7, 2014)

Very fast reply directly with the requested solution.

The value of help desk Andrea review of Help Desk MX (Posted on Apr 25, 2014)

Usually everybody is concentrated on sales, but the real road to success is the customer satisfaction and service offered. With Mirasvit Help Desk MX you have a powerful instrument to manage all your customers' requests in a clear and effective way. Easier than a chat, less expensive in human resources, more effective in problem solving.
Technically this is a great piec of code: I installed it with any problem on my modded magento 1.8. The only suggestion I feel to give is to make the pop up responsive as it does not display properly on small screens as smartphones. I just added a line to make the button on the left disappear under 990px resolution (thanks to my theme).

Great extension superb support David review of Help Desk MX (Posted on Mar 27, 2014)

We are using five extensions developed by Mirasvit. This is our newest addition. After testing Zendesk we decided to use Help Desk MX. It does everything that zen does, but better. I would high recommend it. Support is the best in the business.

Must have extension Steve review of Help Desk MX (Posted on Mar 7, 2014)

We're very happy with the quality of Help Desk MX. Features are well-designed and work perfectly. Allows our support team to tackle a high volume of tickets. It is also includes excellent reporting so we can track how effective each agent is and identify problems. An excellent extension and must have one!

Brilliant extension! Patrick review of Help Desk MX (Posted on Mar 2, 2014)

I have it for about 2 weeks. It was the best decision to buy help desk from Mirasvit. I have heard about your company, and this time decided to purchase an extension in your store. Brilliant and i would say that such responsible developers its not that easy to find. Cheers!

Great Magento extension! Jack review of Help Desk MX (Posted on Feb 26, 2014)

This is simply a great Magento extension.

Is easy to install, and integrates seamlessly. So far only positive feedback. I have decided to choose this extension in your store coz i bought your FPC (does miracles in my store) and i was absolutely amazed by your support team. Saw the demo and understood that this module is exactly what i was needed. The combination of price and functionality is great.

Thanks. Dec 17, 2014
