Zendesk for Education
Show up for students and staff
Education is rapidly evolving and schools worldwide need to adapt to today’s digital climate. Providing students with the best education comes first, but budget cuts and rising expectations are a lot to balance at once. At Zendesk, we provide schools — big and small — with the right solution to support pupils, parents and teachers under any circumstance.
The Zendesk for education approach
Keep an open line of communication
There isn’t a day where you aren’t flooded with questions. Remain in control of operations and keep pupils and parents at ease with open and clear communication. Provide your staff with a flexible support solution that’s easy to use and empowers them to resolve issues quickly. With Zendesk, you can interact and communicate with everyone on the support channels they prefer — email, chat, phone and even social messaging apps such as Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and more. We know how to keep up with the kids these days.
Provide personalised experiences on the Zendesk platform
Bring pupils answers with help centres
Make information accessible to everyone whenever they need it. With Zendesk, you can build a knowledge base of help centre articles to answer common questions. Organise content such as frequently asked questions, system setups and the latest announcements, all in one place. You can even lean on your staff to write articles about any given topic and distribute them through all your channels. This ensures that students, parents, and faculty always have access to current information directly on your website or platform.

With Zendesk, you get access to the tools, automations and workflows that keep conversations running smoothly — no matter who takes over the support request. And with our reporting capabilities, you can identify content trends, share customer feedback and find areas for improvement so you can boost staff productivity.
