Helpshift, the Leader in AI-Powered Customer Service, Boosts Platform for Operational Efficiency and New Compliance Standards

New Capabilities Allow for Real-Time Operations at Global Scale, Support for GDPR, and New Zendesk Integration

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Helpshift, the company revolutionizing the customer support industry through AI-powered customer experiences, today announced significant updates to its platform. The expanded capabilities include a Real-Time Operations dashboard, tools and processes to help enterprises follow GDPR policies, and a Zendesk integration that brings the breadth of Helpshift’s capabilities, including advanced case management, artificial intelligence (AI), and chatbots, to Zendesk’s user base.

“Helpshift wants to enable enterprises to deliver remarkable, human-centric support for every customer, and we’re kicking off the new year by introducing powerful platform capabilities to enable brands to do just that—at scale,” said Linda Crawford, CEO of Helpshift. “We are heavily invested in building innovative tools and solutions that transform service processes and the user experience, and we are ready to serve the enterprise market in a big way.”

Enabling Remarkable Service Experiences at Scale

With Helpshift's new Real-Time Operations Dashboard, supervisors will have access to unprecedented visibility and actionable insights into their operations and will be able to make instant and informed decisions. Supervisors will be able to monitor live data on granular levels with customizable metrics such as agent capacity, agent availability, and issue backlog.

“We're excited about the new Helpshift capabilities provided to our supervisors, who will now be able to focus on higher-level team management with new levels of flexibility and control,” said Chad Boonsupa, VP of customer experience at Vivino. “This provides much greater functionality, as our team can now organize and reallocate resources like never before.”

New GDPR Compliance

To make it easier for enterprises to adhere to the GDPR guidelines, Helpshift will support the necessary organizational measures, tools and processes to do so in Q1. For example, Helpshift will offer an Issue Redaction tool that will enable enterprises to remove support issues, user info and all personal data of a user who has requested it be removed in compliance with the individual rights outlined in the GDPR.

“The core principles of security and privacy protection have been a part of our design and policies from the beginning,”said Helpshift VP of Engineering and Product, Pradeep Jindal. “They align with our existing processes and technology and will continue to be of paramount importance into the future.”

Zendesk Customers Now Have Access to Helpshift’s AI and Chatbots

  • Access Helpshift’s industry-leading case management, AI capabilities, and chatbots to provide fast, personalized, and cost-effective customer service at scale
  • Integrate chatbots into their service initiatives to automate routine tasks and drive operational efficiency
