CubeCart Zendesk

UK based ShopDev has just released a Zendesk Remote Authentication script for CubeCart V4.

CubeCart is an "out of the box" ecommerce shopping cart software solution based on PHP & MySQL. ShopDev is one of UK's leading skin providers for the CubeCart platform and are releasing the remote authentication script for all CubeCart customers.

From ShopDev's blog: "If you're looking for a help desk that interfaces with CubeCart, look no further than Zendesk. Zendesk is a hosted help desk that you can easily customise to match the appearance of your store. Furthermore, it's incredibly simple to use. Our own help desk is powered by Zendesk. In fact, we like it so much that we've cooked up a Remote Authentication file for CubeCart V4."

Remote Authentication is Zendesk's way of providing SSO with 3rd party systems. Basically Zendesk becomes a child to the user registration and authentication mechanism of the parent system, in this case CubeCart, making it seamless for users to access the help desk once they're logged in to CubeCart.
