Integrating Service Desk functions in Salesforce

If you have a company that has to interact heavily with customers via a service desk, it helps to integrate some of these functions with Salesforce in order to make your life easier. Here are a few tools that can help you combine service desk functions with Salesforce.

This tool uses time metrics in order to figure out information about all users that use the service desk you’re using. It can also give advice on exactly how to improve your operations so that handle times go by faster, performance improves, and so that you get better customer satisfaction.

In particular you can track cases and actions in order to figure out where the bottlenecks are. Having a long wait time for customer service can be a serious problem for your business, so this tool can go a long way to helping you figure out how to get those wait times down.

Desk.com for Salesforce
