SAN FRANCISCO, CA – May 24, 2011 – Zendesk, the proven cloud-based help desk software provider, today announced new releases of Zendesk for iPad and Zendesk for iPhone apps. These updates extend Zendesk’s mobile strategy of providing the greatest flexibility for customer support agents to easily view, update and manage support requests anytime, anywhere. With more than 100,000 Zendesk mobile app downloads, the presence of mobile applications for business purposes is proving to be a powerful force that cannot be ignored.

“We’re continually developing new ways for support agents to better interact with customers,” said Zack Urlocker, Zendesk’s COO. “Having Zendesk on a wide variety of mobile devices gives agents the flexibility to look into the health of their support requests anywhere, anytime. This allows them to resolve the high priority issues immediately, therefore significantly improving customer satisfaction.”
