The partnership between the companies opens up the ability for Talkdesk customers to improve the insight and service they deliver to their customers. Using Kustomer, customers can leverage the Talkdesk calling functionality with the data and support capabilities of the Kustomer platform to automate tedious tasks so that support team members can spend more time serving customers.
"Talkdesk is designed on the principle of providing service agents with real-time information about the customer from the first second of a call, so the agent can provide immediate value rather than subject customers to long, frustrating holds," said Tiago Paiva, CEO at Talkdesk. "Kustomer's CRM for support teams provides this information, and when matched with Talkdesk's capabilities, provides a genuinely effortless experience to the customer across channels. We are pleased to count them as our newest partner."
"Having the full customer history in front of us while on a call is incredibly beneficial. Thanks to the Talkdesk integration we are more efficient - our team members solve customer issues faster, with fewer back-and-forth questions needed," said Zach Goldstein, Product Manager, Slice. "The combination of Talkdesk and Kustomer gives us a complete multi-channel solution."
