Zendesk and Drift

Automating your customer support experience has never been easier. By integrating Drift with Zendesk, your customers can instantly get answers to their support questions, create a service ticket, or live chat with a rep in the same platform they used as prospects! When a customer uses the bot to ask a question, the bot will search your Zendesk knowledge base and deliver the top results right through the Drift chat. Still want to talk to a human? A support ticket can be created right though chat. By deflecting to the knowledge base, your reps will have more time to focus on high priority tickets, or jump into the live chat at any time. Hello answers, goodbye wait time
