August 15, 2012

SAN FRANCISCO–, CA – August 15, 2012 – Zendesk today announced its availability on the Google Apps Marketplace, Google’s online storefront for Google Apps products and services.

Now Google Apps users have a fast and easy way to deploy Zendesk, a leading provider of proven, cloud-based customer service software. More than 20,000 organizations including Adobe, Sony, and Groupon, trust Zendesk to deliver exceptional support across the web, email, social media, and the phone.

“Ever since Zendesk was a bootstrapped startup, we have relied heavily on Google Apps to run our business,” said Mikkel Svane, Zendesk’s CEO. “Building this integration makes it easy for ourselves and our 20,000 customers to leverage the power of Google Apps and provide great customer service.”

By supporting Single Sign-on with Google OpenID, existing Zendesk users only need to log in once to access both Google Apps and Zendesk. This eliminates the hassle of logging in and out of multiple applications and creates a seamless, integrated experience for users.

The Google Apps Marketplace makes it easy for more than 4 million businesses using Google Apps to discover, purchase and deploy integrated business applications and related professional services. By integrating with user account and application data stored in Google Apps, these cloud applications provide a simpler user experience, increase business efficiency, and reduce administrative overhead.
