freshdesk-geckoboard-announcement-blog-1a

Today we’re excited to announce a brand new integration with Freshdesk that makes it easier than ever before for Freshdesk customers to stay focused on delivering exceptional customer support.

“Deal with difficult tasks while they are easy. Act on large issues while they are small.”

Laozi, Ancient Chinese Philosopher & Founder of Taoism


If he were alive today, Laozi would have made a fantastic customer support manager.

After all, great customer service comes from being proactive and addressing issues early before they’re allowed to spin out of control.

This might seem obvious, but despite this revelation all too often the early warning signs that indicate a support team might not be delivering a stellar experience for customers can fly under the radar.

A spike in response time… an ever-growing backlog of tickets… plummeting customer satisfaction ratings… The data is there, but it’s easy to overlook, or simply turns up far too late for anyone to act upon.

If only there was something that made it impossible for a team to miss those early warning signs, and instead of fighting fires, get the heads-up they need to identify issues instantly, know which areas need improvement throughout their day, and stay focused on delivering the exceptional service they’re capable of…

Well, if you’re using Freshdesk to manage support tickets you’re in luck!

Today we’re launching a completely new Freshdesk integration that makes visualizing live Freshdesk metrics on a large screen quick and easy so your team can stay aware of the metrics that matter.
