5 reasons to choose eDesk over Front

DIFFERENCE #1

250+ native integrations

Forget third party plugins and workarounds.

When it comes to native integrations, there’s no comparison.

From Amazon & eBay to Macy’s & Walmart, if you sell on a marketplace , we’ve got you covered.

Sell on Shopify or BigCommerce? Maybe you have a Magento, WooCommerce store or another eCommerce platform? We have you covered no matter where you sell.

DIFFERENCE #2

Smart Inbox for online sellers

With general help desks, you can often spend precious hours creating tags and filters to organize tickets for your team—but eDesk eliminates it all for you. It combines rich order data and query types to smartly group similar tickets together so your team can focus in and get through them faster.

With Smart Inbox—common queries are grouped together, meaning you can tackle them together, saving you time and resources.

In larger support teams, ticket types are often delegated. Do you have an agent or team that solely deals with refunds or shipping issues? With Smart Inbox, support agents can focus on a single ticket type and knock them all out with zero distractions.

With Smart Inbox, you can effortlessly resolve those familiar issues in one click with intelligently pre-written responses. Spend less time writing the same replies over & over again with a new cutting edge workflow.

DIFFERENCE #3

AI tools for eCommerce

Resolve common issues in one click with intelligently pre-written AI responses. Don’t waste time on repetitive tasks, focus instead on delighting your customers.

Use AI to intelligently categorise tickets by type, without having to use tags or filters.

List messages in order of priority by default, based on business or marketplace SLA rules.

Use AI to identify and group messages with keywords that indicate sales opportunities and intent to purchase.

Use rules to automatically apply tags to tickets so you can easily find them or assign them directly to agents, based on a variety of conditions. 

See an eye icon and a notification inside a ticket when two or more agents are viewing it at the same time.

DIFFERENCE #4

Have the words you need at your fingertips

Quickly personalise replies to customer queries, even those from international markets, by adding customer and order details, and ensure your responses are consistent in tone using snippets, and translating incoming and outgoing messages into local language.

Include information and common phrases in the messages that you send to customers using #s to automatically insert predetermined values.

Automatically detect messages in foreign languages and translate your customer and support agent communications into the reader’s language.

DIFFERENCE #5

Know your business like never before

Stay on top of key customer support trends so you can make informed decisions faster with product, platform and agent performance insights that are available at the click of a button, and protect your business as it grows by managing your team’s access to sensitive information and functions.

View and download preconfigured performance reports, data visualisations, and heatmaps at the click of a button.

Use role based permissions to automatically control your agents’ access to transaction data and support tools.
