Keep in touch

Having the right tools is the key to keeping phone support running smoothly. Zendesk Voice offers flexible IVR, group routing, and real-time queue monitoring to avoid bottlenecks. And with analytics that deliver insight into what’s happening, support teams can continue to provide flexible, powerful support as businesses grow and change.

    Zendesk supports real-time decisions with real-time call data. Interactive dashboards crunch team data down to a granular level, including wait time, hold time, and abandoned calls, so managers can adapt in-the-moment to fluctuations in call volume.


    With group routing and Interactive Voice Response, buzzing phone lines won’t get tied up with misrouted calls.


    Call recordings make it easy to reference previous calls for troubleshooting and QA. Managers can see agent status and activity and adjust agent availability accordingly.


    With Insights, track and measure the performance of phone support operations and understand how phone support fits into a multi-channel support strategy.
