I have just bee using this for 10 days and I am already loving the way it integrates with different service desks. I could not actually find a competitive alternative to typedesk.

Gu left a review on AlternativeTo

I love automation, saving time and keystrokes, and minimizing typos - so I already had text expansion set up on my computer, but it didn't work in every app.

I am very impressed with how the team handled my 3 star review. They reached out directly to Malwarebytes, got them the info to get the product white listed, and then followed up with me. This is a much needed product, if you type the same...
