Exotel has recently announced their partnership with Zendesk to provide end to end multichannel support to Zendesk’s customers. In this partnership, Zendesk will include the Voice Platform of Exotel’s as a part of its customer support offerings in the region.
Exotel will be integrated through the Zendesk API to facilitate phone support from the same Zendesk family of products businesses currently use to manage all other channels. With full customer history, automatic ticket creation and call recording, this integration will allow agents to focus on conversations rather than workflow.
Speaking about the association, Shivakumar Ganesan, CEO & Founder, Exotel, said, “’We are excited to partner with Zendesk to make customer relationships even better. People in Asia love to connect through calls and SMS. So, these channels are crucial for businesses looking to improve customer happiness. To me, Exotel & Zendesk is like Romeo & Juliet: The story is incomplete if software and communication doesn’t work well together.”
KT Prasad, Country Sales Director at Zendesk, adds, “Zendesk India is on a growth trajectory and we have always been open to complementary solutions that can support our growth in the region. Based on industry insights garnered from consumer research and feedback from our customers in India, we felt the need for voice to further empower our customers. We are excited to be partnering with Exotel in an effort to provide more comprehensive solutions in customer support.”
As a company, Exotel feels strongly about voice as a medium to engage the masses and believes that every business, irrespective of its size, should be able to utilize features like IVR, call recordings to sound more professional and serve their customers better. Exotel provides the basic building block that helps a company customize customer communication over calls and SMS.
