Once you have it set up, Desk is a great software that has a lot of options. The customer support is also really good - people are very attentive and won't just treat you differently based on your number of licenses. They want you to adopt the product and succeed. My company used it mainly for a live chat on two different websites, but the main use case is for multiple support people and / or salespeople to have their tickets organized within an organization.
Pros : Attentive, quick, and smart support, SFDC integration and Single Sign On, lots of features and customization available.Routing for different agents, a mobile app for salespeople or support people on the go. You get email notifications on case updates. You can also put different support people into groups so that issues get routed to the right team. The price of the software isn't unreasonable. Some of the tutorial videos are helpful.I would take them up on the free trial to make sure that you get a good sense of it before buying, and make sure you have all your key stakeholders / teams on board with their use cases.
Cons : The Salesforceandgt;Desk integration is a bit polarizing if you want to have integration with both leads and contacts. You have to choose one and it can be a little confusing to set up.You'll probably need some phone support on this element. Having a Salesforce admin is helpful if you're doing the integration - they claim that it's a lot easier than it actually is. Make sure that you know your various use cases for the product in terms of what you will need. I found it weird that you can't answer a live chat within the mobile app. Customization of the look and feel is a little tougher but a web designer can help.
I think it's fair to state that if you are a startup, you have to move along to find another software to manage your Sales process. Simply because this a huge system, that has a lot of experience built into, big community (but not so organized and the responses from Salesforce is what you'd expect from a dinosaur) and a huge marketplace to look for apps. If you are a startup, you need something easy to maintain, something that you can setup and start using it right then and there. None of this is found in Salesforce. But it is one of the most flexible systems I have every known. If you have money to pay for the Enterprise Edition. We have the Pro Edition and meets our needs half way. That's the way it works that version, almost anything you need to do has a sign on it that says "If you want this, move to EE.". Very frustrating, but if you have a bit of imagination, you can find a way to work around those problems and use most of it.
They liberated the workflows for Contracts, a bit limited for our needs, but serves the purpose of verification and authorization of contracts. The Reports are the most flexible feature they have, along with the custom fields. Dashboards are a great way to communicate metrics and create operational boards. Not really the system, but they have a huge marketplace to look for apps, with the ability to extend greatly the features of SF.
I have experience with Pro Edition. So:

I've used this app primarily while conducting marketing efforts. It has been particularly valuable to me as I previously had to contact one of my analysts in the office to provide information on upcoming meetings/contacts. Now, I am able to easily pull the data and log info myself - cutting out the middleman.More about Salesforce Service Cloud
