The best solutions for your company


Priority Queue

This feature (unique to Zendesk Integration) puts priority customers in first on the queues for inbound calls.


Automatic Screen Pops

Automatically screen pop the account screen in Zendesk from inbound calls matched to the caller ID in the Zendesk database to non-technical support options of the auto attendant (Sales, Customer Services, etc.)


Live Links Recording

All outbound calls established via Live Links will be recorded and attached to Account, Contact, or Ticket records as internal notes.


MP3 Formating

All recordings are compressed and converted to MP3 prior to being uploaded to Zendesk in order to get the longest possible call into Zendesk while observing the attachment size limit.


BVoIP plugin compatable

All inbound calls to any queue listed in the BVoIP plugin will take a recording of the call and attach it as an internal note to either the Account, Contact, or Ticket associated.


Maintains Zendesk Interface

Based on the integration’s design we do not take you out of the Zendesk interface so that your staff will feel comfortable using the views that you are familar with.
