Managing customer service via Zendesk

Zendesk is a help desk system. It works by sourcing all of your customer inquiries (e.g. from social media, webchat, and phone calls) and storing them in one place. 

This makes it easy to organize and manage customer relationships. Best of all, you can use Zendesk to manage the workflow of customer inquiries. 

In sum, it helps your team engage with customers by presenting tickets in an organized sequence. 

Zendesk tickets are simply customer support requests. For example, this could be a request to resolve an issue with an order. 

The tickets can be assigned to particular members of staff, grouped by priority, and shown by status (i.e. new or open).  As a result, the prioritization and progress of tickets allows for superior customer service. 

Our receptionists are very much at ease with delivering 5-star service to your customers. They also take pride in making the process as efficient as possible, for both you and your customers, thanks to the AnswerForce + Zendesk integration.

How does the AnswerForce-Zendesk integration work?

Once you have activated the AnswerForce-Zendesk integration, every chat handled by our receptionists will be recorded in a single place. Once they have finished speaking with the customer, a ticket will be created in the Zendesk app. 

This allows customers to reach out to your business 24/7, 365 days a year. It means that your customers can consistently expect excellent customer service from a professional and friendly team.
