Customer Service Benchmark
This, and other customer service analysis, brought to you by the Zendesk Data Science team.
About the Zendesk Benchmark
When it comes to metrics, one size doesn’t fit all. Whether you’re an education institution supporting students and professors, or a social media app supporting millions of users, context matters.
We started the Zendesk Benchmark in November 2010 to give organisations a way to measure their customer service performance against their peers.
It's not a survey or an expert opinion—it’s based on actual customer service and support interactions from more than 50,000 participating organisations across 140 countries. See how your team compares with other organisations in your industry.
Turning mountains into molehills
Every day, the Zendesk family of products handles 4.6 million interactions between companies and their customers. That’s a lot of data to explore. Luckily, our Data Science team is committed to uncovering patterns and insights for our customers. Here’s where you can start to take action.
