“Zendesk is a platform that's really enabling us to focus on our customers.”

Daniel Santrella

Director of Customer Engagement at Reverb

“One of the main reasons for switching to Zendesk ultimately was to gain those base level efficiencies. What we ended up getting was a lot more than that. Sunshine made it a lot easier for agents to have more information, which in the end resulted in a much better customer experience.”
