Zendesk Support Room for Improvement

Customer Success Manager at a computer software company with 51-200 employees

An area of opportunity for Zendesk is probably just when there's a long email chain and everything gets forwarded to support, I know it can be time consuming for them to extract the important information from the email chain. Sometimes if there was a way to just flag the actual issue out of those email chains - that would be really helpful.

It's just so time consuming, especially trying to find attachments too. I think it'd be good to have just one place, "Here's all the attachments and the 24 emails that's been sent in this chain."

It's hard to say what needs improvement being someone who usually does the communication was Zendesk in Slack rather than the actual interface. However, on the customer success side, it would be really, really helpful if I can somehow categorize all these Zendesk tickets by customers, so that I can see all the outstanding support tickets. That way, the status is in one place for that customer. Right now I really have to check by ticket number. 

We use Pendo, which is another complete different software, however, they have something called NPS scores. I just do a quick search in Slack for the customer's name. Then I see all the NPS scores out of the search results. If I put in the customer name, it's just kind of not associate on the account level in this solution.

The solution could integrate better with QR codes from some websites such as Facebook.

They do not have any operations in Brazil for invoicing, this forces us to deal with international invoices which cause us some difficulties to close accounts in our accounting department. Making invoices in Brazil would be beneficial, other companies allow this such as Amazon Web Services.

Zendesk used to have a whole reporting tool, which they have actually terminated. That has been a small blow for us, however, it used to be a feature where they had that tool that allowed you to just have reports on the go, on the fly. They should bring this feature back. 

They have something called Zendesk Explore, which isn't as good as what they had in place previously. The reporting and analytics part should be improved even more. The effort taken from the user side to configure the reports is a bit more when it's compared to the solution that was there earlier.
