Haptik Partners With Zendesk to Enable AI-Driven Customer Support
First-response Time or First Reply time is the first step to determine a company’s stance on its customers and their satisfaction. It lets customers know that the company values them and is makes it a top priority to manage their questions or queries as quickly as possible. And the digital world we live in, this First-response time has become a crucial part of measuring customer satisfaction. In fact, the average email response time of professionals is 3h 38m 31s during work hours, according to new research from EmailAnalytics. Hence, it goes without saying that the lower the time is taken to respond, the better is the level of customer satisfaction. And this is what Haptik’s recent integration with Zendesk is all about.
