Five9 introduces Zendesk integrations to unify the agent workspace

Five9, provider of a leading CX intelligent platform, is enhancing its integration with Zendesk Talk Partner Edition (TPE) that supports the latest Zendesk Voice Comment and Standard Call Object features—streamlining agent workspaces and enhancing contact center capabilities and controls to ensure every customer interaction is personalized and seamless.

New key features are built on the latest Zendesk release, with Voice Comment and Standard Call Object arming agents with contextual data needed to identify customer needs and deliver resolution with speed and relevance, according to Five9.

Five9’s comprehensive customer ticket data, such as caller identity and intent, is gathered from Five9’s IVA (Intelligent Virtual Agent) and presents them via Five9’s Agent Assist to live agents using the Zendesk Voice Comment feature. 

“By integrating with Zendesk’s latest technology, we’re providing support agents and customers with more enhanced, seamless experiences,” said Scott Black, RVP, business development at Five9. “The complementary solutions allow enterprises to reimagine what the customer service experience looks like by equipping agents with tools that swiftly identify customer needs and deliver timely resolutions.”

The new Five9 enhancements provide key benefits to agents and customers that include:  

  • Crisp and customizable ticketing user interface for stronger workspace management
  • Collapsible ticket view that presents Five9 call data into organized ticket sections and organizable based on priority
  • Improved agent guidance for better customer experiences
  • Parent-child ticket aggregation will now simplify ticket handling by consolidating related tickets into a single view to deliver the necessary context live agents need to provide more cohesive and efficient customer service while also enhancing customer personalization and satisfaction.
  • Increased automation to streamline workflows
  • Automatic call logging for missed or abandoned calls, no longer requiring agents to manually create tickets.
  • AI-Ready Framework for sharing real-time customer data insights with live agents
  • The Zendesk-Five9 integration will make it easier to activate existing Five9 AI for real-time guidance, transcriptions, and summaries

“Our partnership with Five9 remains pivotal in our mission to develop customer support solutions that focus on improving contact center efficiencies and deliver superior experiences to their customers. With improvements to agent guidance and automated workflows, live agents are better equipped to effectively decipher and perform the task at hand," said Tim Marsden, senior director, technology alliances at Zendesk. “Our long-standing partnership with Five9 is making it easy for businesses to tap into powerful solutions from both companies. Together, we’re making it possible to predict and meet customer needs, no matter how rapidly they change.”
