Freshdesk lets you support multiple products from a single helpdesk without having to pay for any extra licenses. 

Using a single helpdesk for an entire organization works all right, but wouldn't your customers love to have a dedicated support portal for each of your products? Freshdesk allows you to have separate portals for each of your products, without creating and paying for more accounts. You can give them different URLs, and also hide irrelevant forums and solutions by restricting them to specific categories.

The agent interface will remain the same for both products. Unless segregated by automation rules, agents can see tickets from all products in their ticket view.

With each of your products, you can have:

  1. Product-specific incoming support mailboxes (like,

  2. Product-specific outgoing support mailboxes

  3. A separate branded customer support portal for each product

  4. Separate knowledge base articles for each product

  5. Distinct community forums for each product  

You can create up to 5 products on the Freshdesk Estate plan. On the Freshdesk Enterprise plan, you can create unlimited products.
