Improve Customer Support Efficiency with Calendar Sync

Do you know how much time your support representatives could save with a calendar integration? Find out here.

Tasia Potasinski | October 18, 2018

Whether you call it customer service, customer support, customer care, or something else, the goal is the same: Increase your customer satisfaction score (CSAT) while increasing customer support representative’s efficiency. As any team in a customer facing support role knows, this is easier said than done.

Which is why we’re excited to announce a partnership between Nylas and Freshdesk that enables support teams to help their customers get to resolutions faster and with more direct support. 

Step 6 Group selection

The Freshdesk Scheduling Application (powered by the Nylas Calendar API) allows Freshdesk agents to schedule meetings between users and the first available agent, all without leaving the Freshdesk platform. The calendar sync API offers your agents the ability to seamlessly integrate with all calendar services, including Gmail and Outlook from within Freshdesk, so customers receive native event invites. 

When agents spend less time on administrative work like scheduling meetings, they have more time for human to human support interactions. The calendar sync features include:

Seamless Integration with 100% of Calendars

The Nylas API connects 100% of email service providers to the Freshdesk application, allowing users to sync their calendars from Gmail, Outlook.com, Microsoft Exchange, Outlook.com and the rest.

Schedule Meetings With Context

Context is crucial to excellent customer support. By scheduling calls between customer support agents and users within the Freshdesk app, you can easily copy and paste all of the context of a support ticket in to the call agenda so both teams have full context.

Step 7 Time selection for appointment

Route Customers to the Right Team Faster

Using the Freshdesk Scheduling application, agents can loop in the team that’s available and best equipped to handle a customer’s issue. When the assigned team receives the calendar invite, they’ll see a private note that details the customer’s problem, so the team is ready to solve it immediately.

Save Customer Support Agents’ Time

The Nylas app saves agents from bouncing out of Freshdesk, to a CRM platform, to another scheduling platform, and back to Freshdesk just to schedule a customer call. Now, with a few clicks, agents can tag the appropriate teams to handle an issue as well as schedule a date, time, and medium for the meeting.

Ready to get started?

Anyone with a Freshdesk account can download and use the Freshdesk Scheduler. Simply download the app from the Freshdesk marketplace.
