Zendesk Top Features
Support ticket system software helps collect all your customer support requests from any source and lets you manage them from one location.
Zendesk’s ticketing system does that incredibly well – acting like a shared inbox for all of your customer’s questions and concerns.
By bringing together requests from email, chat, Twitter, etc., they make it easy to keep track of customer issues and conversations to more quickly answer questions and solve problems.
Knowledge base software helps you create, organize, and share support content with your agents, particular customers, or the public.
This could be a simple FAQ page for smaller companies, or a wiki with dozens or hundreds of interlinked pages if you have a complex set of offerings.
Zendesk makes it easy to create, customize, and use one or more knowledge bases – for specific departments, for agents only, or for your customers – so that answers are always at hand when they’re needed.
Building online communities around your company and products is a great way to deepen and strengthen your customer relationships.
Feedback is crucial to understanding your customers, but interactions between them and your company are only part of the equation.
By creating a space for your customers to talk to each other, you can not only get more detailed, honest feedback from them but also reduce your support load by allowing customers to answer questions for each other.
