Zendesk Analytics & Reporting

August 7th, 2018

Zendesk has become an industry standard when it comes to cloud-based customer support software. It’s ease of use and cloud-based tools for support teams has led it to being used by thousands of companies around the world. We’re such big fans of their easy to use software here at DataHero that we use Zendesk ourselves to handle our support tickets, while using DataHero to dive into our Zendesk analytics. It has allowed us to track and measure our support tickets to ensure that our customers are always receiving the highest level of customer care.

As power users of the platform, it became obvious to us that finding deeper Zendesk analytics and support team reporting would be a major requirement for us to ensure that our customers were being responded to in an effective, timely, and efficient manner. Out of the box, Zendesk does have a nice overview with some basic metrics on team performance and support ticket analysis, but it doesn’t allow the type of granular insights or custom analytics that are often times necessary to get the full picture.




It’s one of the reasons why chose to integrate directly with Zendesk and build a data connector, letting any business user to analyze their Zendesk results quickly and easily. With DataHero, you can dive deeper into your Zendesk tickets and team performance data to get a more granular view of your customer success department, and share it with your team or executives to always have a pulse on your customer success team performance.
