Zendesk and Hexnode UEM Integration

Zendesk Support

Zendesk Support is a customer service platform that makes customer relations faster and hassle-free. It brings together all queries that come by email, phone, chat, or social media under a single platform thereby making it easier to track, prioritize, and solve them. These queries, called tickets and can be assigned to the respective technicians from within the Support console.

Ticket Handling and Apps

Customer queries in the form of Help Center requests, emails, chat, and social media messages can be set to automatically create support tickets. These tickets can be answered through the console itself and the reply would then be sent back to the platform from which the ticket was originally raised, thus ensuring faster response time. Moreover, you can integrate powerful tools from third party developers available as apps on the Zendesk marketplace. The Hexnode UEM app for Zendesk makes managing your mobile devices a breeze.

Zendesk Integration with Hexnode UEM

Zendesk users can integrate Hexnode UEM with the Support platform to manage devices faster and easier. Any IT admin with Zendesk Support and Hexnode UEM can manage their users’ devices from the Support console itself. The support requests from the channel via Hexnode UEM will be assigned as Zendesk Support Tickets. It is through these tickets that the queries are handled.
