2016 - Zendesk introduced Zendesk Message to win over JIRA


Zendesk, the leading customer support software, adds the new feature - Message - the messaging product that helps businesses engage customers on their favorite messaging platforms. The first of these messaging platforms is Facebook Messenger. Zendesk Message is easy to use and designed specifically for messaging. Since messaging interactions tend to occur in short bursts, we made it easy for agents to move quickly from one conversation to the next, while keeping it easy to assign, own, and resolve conversations. Agents will be able to easily reference important events in a long conversation stream with features like timeline.
