About Zendesk

Our Company

Zendesk builds software for better customer relationships. We empower organisations to improve their customer engagement and better understand their customers.

Our Products

Zendesk was built upon a simple idea: make customer service software that’s easy to use and accessible to everyone. We have expanded on that idea, and now offer a growing family of products that work together to improve customer relationships, and can be embedded and extended through an open development platform.

Our products are easy to use and implement. They give organisations the flexibility to move quickly, focus on innovation, and scale with their growth.
