Zendesk. Simple, Smooth, and Powerful

Systems Integrated With

  • SalesForce.
  • Phabricator.
  • Jira.
For SalesForce and Jira it was simple as they have a full integration app that you just download, input some simple information and you're done.

Where as with Phabricator, I had to do a custom integration which worked smoothly.

Systems Integrated With

  • We have integrated with our project management / bug tracking system - Atlassian Jira. If a ticket relates to a technical problem with our application, we push the ticket from Zendesk to Jira so that developers have access to the ticket.
  • This was a fairly straightforward integration. It's offered as an out-of-the-box integration by Zendesk and did not require any coding on our part. It took a little while to set up, but was not particularly difficult.

Systems Integrated With

  • Our own SAAS product, a Force.com based application
  • Our corporate CRM Salesforce.com
  • GoodData
  • Screener
Our own Force.com based product - just via simple single sign-on.

Salesforce.com - two-way integration comes with Zendesk, easy to set up

GoodData – integration comes with PLUS edition. Data syncs are hourly. It was very simple to set-up. You just have to copy a token over.

Screener – prebuilt integration provided by Zendesk, very simple to set up.

Systems Integrated With

  • Jira bug tracking
  • GoodData analytics package
  • HootSuite
  • LiveChat
• Jira: Use Jira for bug tracking and it’s important for us to integrate with this systems so that we can see the status of bug fix progress without having to go and ask the dev team. The developers will also be cc’d on all inquiries about bug fix status to help them gauge urgency. We have not done this integration yet, but it is a high priority.
• GoodData: Integration with this analytics package is pre-built and is part of the product.
• HootSuite: We use HootSuite for support over Twitter, and worked with Zendesk to build out this integration.
• LiveChat: This is very important for increasing resolution speed
