SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - April 4, 2011) - --SUGARCON--Zendesk, a web-based help desk software provider, today announced a new integration with SugarCRM, the world's fastest growing customer relationship management (CRM) company. Zendesk for SugarCRM lets customer support agents seamlessly access SugarCRM customer data from Zendesk, and vice versa.

  • Single complete view of customers and opportunities from sales to marketing to support
  • Access to Zendesk's ticket management functionality directly from SugarCRM

All customer interactions are tracked, meaning a quicker resolution time and happier customers."
