integration

integrationBringing teams together through integration is the common goal of every collaboration app. Companies have a major interest in having their teams working together. It doesn’t matter if they all work in the same office or if part of the team works remotely. They all should be able to accomplish all its projects in common. 

 

 

In previous articles we talked about why different departments such as marketing and customer support should work together, and at the end of the day, what matters the most is obtaining good results for the company’s success. 

That’s why integration is so important, and thankfully, collaboration apps are here to make work easier through integration.

In other words, technology provides us with many options that not only allows integration between internal teams but also between different companies. 

With collaboration apps having a big role in today’s business it’s only natural that other companies have an interest in working with them as well. This only shows why automated work is so important.

Among other benefits, real-time communication is key to every business success. The older days of communication via email are gone. Now we expect immediate responses for everything, and it’s totally understandable.  

integrationHaving both happy customers and happy employees is something that every company should achieve. 

 

 

 

Faster stands for better. With competition getting higher everyday businesses really need to put their best efforts into implementing all the right tools that can help them deliver better results.

Employees are aware of this, so they expect to have everything they need to optimize their work. 

Similarly, customers expect to receive the very best. From customer support, to follow up processes. They know all you can offer and they will stay only if they feel happy and satisfied enough.  

Understanding the current needs of its customers Freshservice decided to team up with Microsoft Teams. 

A service desk must provide the fastest communication between a company, its customers and employees. You should relay to your service desk to make sure everyone gets the appropriate response in a timely manner.

Considering that there’s a lot of information going on between departments, and understanding that sometimes it can be difficult to switch between your service desk, email and the collaboration app you’re using; Freshservice has now decided to take all the essential service desk updates to IT agents.  

The Freshservice – Microsoft Teams integration brings all the important updates from Freshservice to your Microsoft Teams account. Providing you with an effective way to get all your crucial service desk updates inside your MST.
