How can Zoho Desk help your company?
Context-aware ticket management
Multi-department: Your teams deal with a large number of tickets with different levels of complexity. However, this doesn't have to be a complicated process. Zoho Desk lets you define multiple departments so you have separate tiers specializing in different levels of support. Moreover, within each department, you have the flexibility to group agents into teams.
Multichannel: Being Managed Service Providers having multiple email addresses and phone numbers can create a fair amount of back-and-forth for agents replying to customer requests. Zoho Desk's multichannel capabilities bring all your customer interactions via email, telephone, social media, live chat, web forms and more, on to a single screen.
However, keeping track of conversations that aren't available in writing requires a more layered approach. Phone conversations need to be logged, monitored, and associated with existing tickets to maintain context. Our telephony integrations make it easy for you to streamline and monitor your on-call services.
Zoho Desk provides you the flexibility to group support agents into different teams based on their expertise or the project they're working on, so tickets go to the right teams all the time. If an agent is unavailable, the ticket can be taken up by another individual in the team. This way, your service goes on uninterrupted.
Multi-brand Help Centers
As an MSP, your company deals with a large number of brands. You can now enable self-service portals and communities for all these brands, personalized to suit each of their requirements. Create multiple portals with a different set of FAQs, articles, and live chat widgets for each brand you service. The best part? All chat conversations from different portals get routed to a single interface. Within each portal, you can use the Community to post announcements and host AMAs.

Prospect and lead data console
Zoho Desk's deep integration with Zoho CRM makes it easy to manage and retain high-value clients, up-sell, or cross-sell without losing any time. Your support team can view the CRM status of every ticket, the customer's previous interactions with the sales team, deal size and more, to gauge the level of attention the prospect requires. Your sales team, on the other hand, gets notified about the ticket activity, and can respond to them from within Zoho CRM.
Service Level Agreement
With SLAs, you can specify the response and resolution time for a ticket based on criteria like priority, channel, time due, and customer type. Contracts ensure that you stick to the customer support plans that you've agreed to for the specified time.
Automating and triaging
Ticket Assignment: Using Zoho Desk's automations, there are two ways to reduce the bottlenecks and delayed response times that MSPs are prone to:
- Round Robin: Distribute tickets evenly to all your agents based on the limit that you set. With minimal intervention, Round Robin ensures that no ticket goes unassigned.
- Criteria-based assignment: You can also ensure that specific kinds of tickets are handled by specific agents on your team. This increases the rate of first-call resolutions.
Workflows: Associate rules, tasks, and alerts with multiple conditions to ensure that work goes on smoothly. You can also define rules to automatically escalate a ticket that's past its due time, notify the manager immediately, and also re-assign the ticket to a different agent.
Reporting and Insights
Zoho Desk offers dashboards and custom reports that you can use to improve your customer support. The HQ provides all the vital metrics on a single screen for a quick overview.
Managers can get more comprehensive reports on the time spent on tickets by each agent, average customer happiness levels, ticket volume split by channels and so on. They can schedule reports and create their own dashboards for effective analysis of the company's performance.
You can now integrate Zoho Desk with your favorite apps from the Marketplace. The add-ons and extensions offered are from both within and outside the Zoho suite of products.
Apart from the Marketplace integrations, you can also extend Zoho Desk's capabilities with:
Use Zoho Desk's powerful SDKs to build custom mobile apps.
Integrate Zoho Desk's modules with other services.
Use custom code to update details in other software based on updates in your tickets.
You can provide customer service without being tied to the desk with Zoho Desk's contemporary mobile help desk apps. Agents can view, reply, collaborate with other teams, and reassign tickets from the Zoho Desk mobile app.
For managers, the Radar app gives agents and managers a comprehensive view of critical metrics such as ticket resolution time, customer happiness, live traffic, and individual agent stats, on the go. This helps catch exceptions and anomalies well in time.
