Benchmark Email Freshdesk Integration
Keeping your customers happy is a full-time job.
Whether it is resolving complaints or helping your customers learn how to use a particular feature of your product, customers have come to expect swift and thoughtful solutions to their inquiries.
In order to have your customer support team always ready to provide optimum service, they need to work with the right customer support software.
Good customer support software should be easy to set up, allow you to scale seamlessly, and allow your agents to collaborate easily. Freshdesk is one customer support software that checks all of those boxes.
It allows you to put all your customers’ conversations in one place and collaborate with other teams to work on issues faster.
And, since emails have traditionally been the most important customer support channel, we decided to build an integration that combines the powerful features of Benchmark Email and Freshdesk to help you manage your customer support via email.
Let’s see why Freshdesk is important for your customer support team and why you should use it with Benchmark Email.
Why Use Freshdesk?
Here's why your customer service team will benefit from using Freshdesk as their preferred helpdesk software.
Manage Your Omnichannel Presence
Wouldn’t you like to track your customers’ journey through every communication channel -- chat, social media, phone calls, emails -- till they finally make that purchase? That’d be great, right?
Freshdesk is a customer experience and helpdesk software that allows you to do just that. You know exactly what’s happening with your customers and can shape the experience they have as they move along your funnel.
- Turn your support emails into tickets that will be dealt with by your customer support agents.
- Answer calls and turn them into tickets in Freshdesk.
- Support your customers on Twitter and Facebook.
- Chat with your customers through platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook, and Apple Business Chat.
- And if you’re tired of the number of support tickets you keep getting, you can publish a branded knowledge base and add a chatbot to help your customers find the answers they need quickly.
Multiply Your Customer Support Teams’ Efficiency
When a team works together to achieve a common goal, you know success is in the cards. Freshdesk also offers you collaboration features that help your team work efficiently together to make your customers’ problems go away.
Here’s some of what you can do with these collaboration tools
- You can share ownership of tickets. This means that different teams can have access to the same ticket and never lose visibility of its progress. This way, every party involved in making a customer’s problem go away is never left out of the conversation. And the customer-facing agent always has the most up-to-date information.
- You can link similar issues together anytime there is a surge in incoming support emails or tickets. Your team would work on every related ticket and send out consistent replies to the customers.
- There is also the Parent-Child ticketing feature which allows you to split complex issues into smaller ones that members of your team can work on.
It Is Secure
Your customer data is important. Mismanaging it could spell disaster for your organization.
Freshdesk provides you with enterprise-grade security that ensures that your business has the privacy, data protection, and security it needs to scale globally.
There Are No Strings Attached
Freshdesk has a 21-day free trial, so you can test out the software without spending any money. Plus, there's no credit card required for setting up your free trial, giving you nothing to lose.

Tips For Integrating Benchmark Email With Freshdesk
The process of integrating Freshdesk with your Benchmark Email account is simple. Just follow these steps:
- Log in to your Benchmark Email account.
- Click on your profile on the top right-hand corner and select integrations from the options.

Note that the final number of imported contacts might be less than the projected value, as Benchmark Email filters certain emails out. Such emails include role-based emails, duplicates, unsubscribes, and blocked domains.
If your customers feel like you don’t pay them enough attention, they’ll leave you for your competitor. And getting them back might prove impossible. That’s why you should use a platform like Freshdesk that ensures you never lose track of what your customer wants.
