Zuora, the subscription billing and commerce leader, and Zendesk, the proven cloud-based help desk software provider, today announced the launch of the Zuora Global Support Portal. The web-based support ticket application and self-service customer support platform, powered by Zendesk, is located at support.zuora.com.
“Zendesk has helped us increase our response rate, decrease our response times, and deliver new visibility into customer issues,” said Marlene Summers, Senior Manager, Zuora Global Support. “Best yet, Zendesk makes our support agents excited about working on their tickets.”
Through the portal, Zuora’s customers can stay up-to-date with announcements from the Zuora Global Support Team, get answers from the community, and share feature suggestions. In addition, the support system fully supports customer inquiries from the @ZuoraSupport Twitter handle through Zendesk’s innovative Twicket™ service.
“It is great to see Zuora take advantage of multiple channels such as the web, email and social media to deliver superior customer support,” said Kate Hobbie, Zendesk’s Director of Customer Support. “Having more than 10,000 customers ourselves, our own support team understands the importance of delivering outstanding customer support through whatever means our customers choose to communicate with us.”
Summers added,“There are so many things to love about Zendesk. With its GoodData integration, we inherit a robust set of reporting and analytics with literally one click. To integrate into our Engineering and Operations teams, we easily created custom widgets to serve as a communication vehicle. And, although Zendesk is very easy to set-up and use, it is sophisticated enough to handle our billing support needs.”
