Freshdesk is a customer support ticketing software. This tool is mostly used by the technical support teams and sales teams usually do not have access to such programs, meaning they do not know if the potential customer has contacted the customer support team.
Freshdesk and Teamgate integration allow seeing all the relevant information about the potential or existing customer in one place! The dedicated bar displays the ticketing history inside the Lead, People and Deals cards.
Reviewing recent tickets of your potential customers may provide you with a valuable information regarding the areas of interest of your potential client or issues he/she might be facing.
Note: Freshdesk integration is available for Enterprise Plan users only. See how to upgrade your plan here.
