The Freshdesk alternative that's made for growing businesses
Are you a small business owner looking for a help desk that's simple, affordable, and built for you? Look no further than Keeping.

No Credit Card Required
Why Keeping is a great Freshdesk alternative
Keeping is the Freshdesk alternative with every feature you need for one low price.
Create a Keeping mailbox, forward your shared email address or connect with Google, and invite your team.
Know where every support email stands by marking them as Open, Closed or Pending. No more requests slipping.
Easily share notes with your whole team to communicate what needs to be done or how to follow up.
Add as many shared inboxes as you like - respond from your personal inbox without having to manage multiple logins.
Advanced reporting gives you the data you need to know to measure your team’s performance.
Getting the same questions over and over again? Easily save and share canned answers across your team.
Keeping prevents multiple team members from working on the same support request at the same time.
Let your customers know you're listening with an automatic reply - customizable by mailbox.
Keeping keeps your customer support invisible
When a customer sends you an email, they won't know you're using Keeping. They'll just see a friendly email from your support address. No case IDs, no jargon, no confusion.
That's because Keeping is designed to keep your customer support personal. When your team responds to a customer request, they'll be using their own email addresses, so your customers can build relationships with the people who are helping them.
Keeping also keeps your team's email addresses private. That means you can keep your work and personal email addresses separate, and your customers won't be able to see your team's real email addresses.
Keeping works directly inside Gmail
Your team can use Keeping without any training. Keeping is a help desk that works directly inside Gmail, so your team can use it without learning a new tool. They already know how to use Gmail, so they already know how to use Keeping.
That means your team can start using Keeping immediately without downtime or productivity loss.
Keeping also saves you time. Because Keeping is integrated with Gmail, you don't have to switch between different apps to manage your customer support tickets. This means your team can spend less time managing their inbox and more time helping customers.
