CX for Manufacturing

Bringing legacy manufacturing into the modern era

Overwhelmed by hundreds of different processes, the SMC team had no standardized process for connecting with customers and fulfilling orders. As a manufacturing trailblazer, SMC partnered with Zendesk to bring its legacy systems into the modern era.

A move to global operations

Customer service drives growth for business

Zendesk helped SMC drive efficiency and quality beyond the production floor. A unified customer view means agents can fulfill and invoice orders more quickly and see improved time-to-cash, meaning happier agents and happier customers.

Agents love Zendesk

SMC’s agents were blocked from providing best-in-class customer support with previously disjointed solutions, complex workflows, limited automation, and no internal help centers. SMC empowered agents with the right tools and workflows, which transformed their agent experience—making them much happier agents. And better agent experience means better customer experience as well as money better spent.
