Ifbyphone Widget for Zendesk

Turn Your Customer Support Calls Into Zendesk Support Tickets!

Do you know how much great customer support is worth to your business? Consider this: happy customers who get their issue resolved tell roughly four to six people about their experience.1 With unhappy customers, 91% of them will not willingly do business with your organization again.2

The Ifbyphone Widget for Zendesk elevates the support and service experience for everyone—your customers and your agents—through a powerful, customized integration that can make every customer phone call an actionable, organized Zendesk ticket. The Ifbyphone Widget makes phone support and all phone-related efforts a fully integrated feature of the Zendesk customer support ecosystem.

With the Ifbyphone Widget For Zendesk You Can:

  • Improve customer service with a feature-rich voice widget that automatically records phone calls and captures important call information
  • Activate a system that tracks the progression of your customer support calls and integrates easily with Zendesk and other CRMs
  • Serve more customers faster with voice-based tools that help you shorten response time
  • Save time and money with an efficient, easy-to-use integration that displays your most important call data up front, and scales to fit any size workforce

A positive support experience for your customers can mean higher customer retention rates, a boost in customer satisfaction and increased opportunities for cross-selling and up-selling. To provide these quality customer experiences, it’s also important to remember your customer support agents; help your agents be as efficient and happy as possible so they can give your customers first-rate service and support.

How it works:

The Ifbyphone Widget for Zendesk seamlessly integrates your customer support calls with Zendesk ticketing through two key components:

Voice Mail Integration

  • Customers leave a voice message which is automatically recorded
  • Ifbyphone routes the voice message and transcription to Zendesk
  • Zendesk creates a new ticket with the transcription and the audio file

Call Distributor Widget

  • Your help desk manager configures the Ifbyphone Call Distributor
  • Your agents install the Ifbyphone Widget in their Zendesk accounts
  • Immediately provide and access phone support within your Zendesk account
