PagerDuty announced PagerDuty for Customer Service to empower front-line customer service agents to solve issues faster and deliver better experiences to their customers.

The solution, which consists of new partnerships and two-way integrations with Zendesk and Salesforce Service Cloud, lets teams proactively share information between the applications they work in, understand and resolve technical issues and work together as a united front supporting customers.

“PagerDuty’s two-way integration with Zendesk solves a significant problem in customer service: information siloed between teams working in different systems,” Zendesk’s VP of Product, Luke Behnke, said. “When teams are able to share information and collaborate, customers get resolutions faster. With this solution, technical teams can see specific context from customer conversations within PagerDuty, such as whether it’s an isolated or widespread issue, without sifting through call logs and emails."

“A large retailer can lose hundreds of thousands of dollars a minute if its website fails in a busy shopping period, so every second counts when resolving issues and communicating with customers,” said PagerDuty’s SVP of Business Development and Corporate Strategy, Jukka Alanen. “PagerDuty acts as the central nervous system for a company’s digital operations, giving teams a single view into how their infrastructure and applications are running. Modern customer service teams play a key role in the customer experience and to improve how they communicate with customers, can now receive real-time updates from technical teams.”

The new solution builds on PagerDuty’s ever-growing digital operations ecosystem, which includes more than 350 integrations with over 200 partners whose products are used by teams including DevOps, ITOps, Security and Customer Service. PagerDuty sits at the heart of this ecosystem, using 10 years of machine and human response data from 12,000 customers to provide visibility, intelligence, orchestration and automation across a company’s entire digital operations.

By linking more of these products and teams around PagerDuty’s platform, PagerDuty for Customer Service extends the benefit of real-time digital operations management to more people, giving them the flexibility to do more within the applications they work in.
