Business text messaging for customer support teams.

Heymarket is a text messaging platform for your customer support team. Your team gets a shared inbox and phone number for receiving and sending SMS with users. Heymarket can text enable an existing phone number, while keeping the voice service intact, or provide a new phone number with call forwarding. The Zendesk integration allows agents to read and respond to SMS from anywhere within Zendesk. Heymarket also offers the ability to engage with users by staying in touch with them through lists and campaigns. Features in this integration include:

  • Assignments - assign chats to agents
  • Auto Response - configurable, automated replies based on time, first incoming message, or specific keywords
  • Automations - trigger/action framework to auto assign chat or add user to list
  • Templates - Reuse frequently used messages that include merge tokens
  • Private notes - add internal notes about a conversation
  • Notifications - intelligent, desktop and mobile notifications with configurable do not disturb
  • Reports - usage and team performance reports, including KPIs
  • Native mobile experience -Award winning, native iOS and Android apps.
  • Administration - powerful administrative tools with granular user permissions, integrations, and custom fields

Heymarket’s Zendesk integration will automatically create and push business text messages to your Zendesk ticket queue. You will be able to view the SMS both in Zendesk and in Heymarket.
