Zendesk is one of the leading customer service softwares on the market. It helps small and medium-sized businesses improve customer retention by improving their customer support capabilities.
Zendesk is powerful on its own, but it can be even more impressive when you take advantage of its numerous software integrations. In this article, I’ll list some of the most highly recommended Zendesk integrations at Aktie Now.
5 Best Zendesk Integrations
There are tons of great Zendesk integrations out there to explore. These four are some of the most widely used by the team at Aktie Now:
In 2023 alone, Shopify has powered 4.4 million websites in over 175 countries globally. With Shopify merchants reporting 700 million customers by March in 2023, it is clear that there is a lot of personal data on hold.
Shopify app for Zendesk syncs customer and business information which promotes quick deliveries since agents will only spend time toggling on other applications. It provides agents with valuable shopify information right within the Zendesk portal, such as:
- Customer’s details
- Recent orders
- Billing information
- Order information
- Shipping information
This helps agents to make accurate and quick decisions on issues such as solving tickets and processing refunds and cancellations. This works for both Shopify and Shopify plus.
The Formspree-Zendesk integration breaks the barrier between acquiring and sending the form data to your help desk.
