Unify messages across channels

Grow your business one conversation thread at a time. With a unified channel API, you can send rich messages that work across web, mobile, and social.

Orchestrate from one thread

Create a chat experience that switches easily across systems using conversation orchestration. Integrate your existing systems, bots, or third-party software.

Put what you know to work. Adjust the Zendesk data model so that it’s accessible, usable, and just right for your business. You can capture activity, like when an order is placed, and customer attributes, like their shoe size. All of it adds up to a single view of the customer.

Get a single view of the customer

Give your agents a single view of everything you know about a customer. Using APIs, unify information across systems like order history, loyalty status, and web activity.

Shape data to your business

Tailor Zendesk to your organization’s unique structure and processes with custom objects. If you’re an IT team, you can track laptops. If you’re in retail, store product catalogs or customer order history.

Put the data to work

Create reports and draw insights from your data. With that information, you can build new workflows, streamline processes, and personalize your customer journey.
