Complete support agent workflow from your BlackBerry
SAN FRANCISCO, September 28, 2010 – Zendesk, a web-based customer support software provider, announces Zendesk for BlackBerry, a mobile help desk app that gives support agents with BlackBerry smartphones the same visibility into Zendesk ticket system activity, wherever they may be.

New Zendesk users can also create an account directly from Zendesk’s BlackBerry mobile help desk app.
Zendesk has more than 60,000 mobile help desk users, and thousands of customer requests are currently being processed through Zendesk’s mobile applications every weekday.
The Zendesk for BlackBerry app provides these key capabilities:
- Access all your customer support ticket views
- Update existing tickets and add comments for follow up
- Create new support tickets
- View entire ticket threads
- Create new accounts on the fly
“I love that I can access my tickets anywhere with Zendesk for BlackBerry’s intuitive app,” says Donavon Roberson, operations manager for Zappos Insights. “Many of our customers will contact us over the weekend about the tours we schedule, and I can respond to these requests without having to wait until I’m back in the office — handling any urgent issues immediately through my BlackBerry. As a result, we can continue to provide great customer support.”
“In today’s mobile world, great customer support can’t only begin or end at the office,” said Maksim Ovsyannikov, Vice President, Product Management, Zendesk. “Zendesk for BlackBerry combines the world-class productivity of the BlackBerry platform with simple and affordable customer support technology provided by Zendesk, giving users the ability to deliver outstanding support whenever and wherever they may be.”
