Canvas allows companies to embed third-party apps directly into the Desk.com console, creating a customized user interface that prompts agents to become productive and deliver better customer service experiences.
Agents can improve productivity because Desk.com Canvas offers single console for all systems such as tracking a shipment, processing a refund or checking on the status of an order. This apart, Single Sign-On (SSO) streamlines agent access for all of the apps in the console.
Desk.com Custom Controls
Service managers can utilize Desk.com Custom Controls to assist agents to answer the right cases. Managers can govern agent access, assignments, editing capabilities and more. For example, a retailer who is scaling up for the holidays and doesn’t want to provide full access to support agents can provide a different tier of access to the seasonal support team.
SMBs are connecting with their customers through mobile apps. Desk.com Embed, a mobile SDK, allows companies to insert mobile support directly into any app, so customers can access customer service anytime, anywhere, all without leaving the app.
Benjamin Christie, founder and president of Gourmet Ads, said: “Since switching to Desk.com, we’ve seen an 80 percent reduction in case volume. Desk.com enables us to realize our vision of being a one-stop shop for our customer; it’s a game changer for us.”
