Here are the newest integrations from Zendesk to help your team provide top-quality experiences.

Yext User History

Yext User History (Support) reveals a requester’s journey through your Yext Search experiences–up until and after case creation. Arm your agents with this data so they can provide more relevant answers. The component displays all of the actions a customer has taken in Yext search. With this visibility, your agents can both communicate more efficiently with customers as well as identify gaps in documentation that haven’t effectively answered the customer’s questions.

Power BI Connector by Alpha Serve

Power BI Connector by Alpha Serve (Support) is an Enterprise-grade app that connects Zendesk to Microsoft Power BI. Export all Zendesk Support data related to tickets, ticket metrics, agents and users, satisfaction ratings, comments, organizations, etc., and build comprehensive reports to make data-informed decisions that drive strategic actions, and help companies to build better relationships with their customers.

Rdentify

Rdentify for Support and Chat (Support) (Chat) brings together state-of-the-art machine learning and linguistics technology to provide customer protection. It identifies signs of vulnerable customers during customer interactions and flags them to Customer Support agents in real time within Zendesk. Rdentify also analyzes customer sentiment and Customer Frustration scores together; the tagging system assists businesses to better understand the source of customer frustration and allows for more informed QA of Customer Support Agents. Break down customer conversations by type and set your own tags–such as litigation threat, debt, financial harm, closure requests, deposit issues, etc.–and view all this information within your existing Zendesk integration.

Sift

Sift (Support) is the leader in Digital Trust and Safety, empowering digital disruptors and Fortune 500 companies to unlock new revenue without risk. Sift dynamically prevents fraud and abuse through industry-leading technology and expertise. This integration will enable your fraud teams to leverage Sift’s fraud prevention scores, to derive better insights and context while staying in strong alignment with your customer service team.

OCR PDF Converter by Knots

OCR PDF Converter by Knots (Support) converts your PDF or image file into a ticket comment. Optical character recognition automatically scans even handwritten text from Zendesk ticket attachments directly on ticket creation without delay. The text will then be stored as an internal comment on the ticket. It supports file extensions like PDF, JPG, JPEG, PNG, and HEIC.
