8x8 Partners With Zendesk To Deliver A Cloud-Based, Out-of-the-Box Customer Service Contact Center Solution

Stocks in this article: EGHT

8x8, Inc. (NASDAQ:EGHT), a provider of cloud-based unified communications, contact center and collaboration solutions, today announced it has partnered with Zendesk, the leading cloud-based customer service platform used by more than 40,000 customers, to develop a bundled cloud contact center solution. The solution tightly weaves the functionality of both applications to improve the responsiveness, efficiency and management of contact centers.

8x8 Virtual Contact Center (VCC) and Zendesk function as a single SaaS instance with reporting and runtime data integrations, enabling contact centers to increase first call resolution rates, shorten call handle times, and extract the right metrics needed to maximize the efficiencies of the contact center. Zendesk provides the software for agents to track customer issues, tie inquiries to a single customer record and drive agents to a solution. 8x8 manages customer interactions across voice, chat and other channels to ensure customers are connected with the agent who is best prepared to help them. With the combined 8x8 Virtual Contact Center/Zendesk solution, organizations can provide the highest quality customer service experience to increase satisfaction and build loyalty while saving money through greater efficiency.

“The 8x8 and Zendesk product development teams have worked diligently to create a powerful, yet easy to use, cloud-based solution for call center organizations that place a premium on delivering outstanding customer service,” said 8x8 Senior Vice President of Business Development Huw Rees. “We are extremely pleased with the result of these efforts and look forward to continuing to work with Zendesk to bring this compelling solution to market.”

In contrast to existing integrations between contact center services and customer service applications, the 8x8/Zendesk integration provides significant value out-of-the-box with no customization required. This minimizes the cost and delays contact centers generally face when implementing new software integrations. Additionally, the tight integration between the two solutions leads to greater efficiencies within the contact center for both agents and supervisors.
