Zoho Desk seamlessly integrates customer information from Zoho CRM into support tickets, enabling agents to have all the necessary details at their fingertips. The system also assists agents in automatically prioritizing support tickets based on customer interactions. Additionally, the software provides ticket filtering options based on criteria such as due time, status, or customer type. When additional assistance is needed, the Team Feed feature comes to the rescue, allowing users to seek help from their colleagues. Moreover, the @mentions feature allows for easy collaboration by involving another colleague in the conversation or assigning the ticket to the appropriate person.

Zoho has finally added a Helpdesk service to its SaaS suite. We say finally, because the helpdesk sphere - is primary for Zoho.
