Salesforce.com has updated customer service tool Desk.com to include a new agent console, reporting engine and a mobile app.
The new console is designed to provide customer service representatives with quicker access to customer profile and interaction data. The most important console upgrade allows each rep to customize the console to his/her own preferences.
Salesforce has improved Desk.com’s reporting engine by including comprehensive reports that are designed to identify real-time trends. Salesforce has also added more APIs that allow developers to connect the solution to other reporting applications.
Desk.com’s new mobile app is designed for iPhones and iPads. The app features note-taking functionality, on-the-go status-updating and case assignation. Support for Android devices will be available in the fall.
Desk.com users include HotelTonight, One Kings Lane and SoundCloud. The newest version of Desk.com is generally available at $30 per month, per agent.
