Seamlessly deliver customer service on your WordPress website with the Freshdesk-WordPress integration. Get started in a few clicks!
If you’re using WordPress to host your website, you need to provide an easy way for customers to reach out to you and find answers to frequently asked questions. However, instead of simply adding yet another channel for your support team to manage, you need to ensure they’re able to handle all customer conversations, including those from WordPress, without having to switch back and forth between multiple tools.
Freshdesk is an omnichannel customer service software that brings all your customer conversations into one place - be it email, phone, live chat, social media or WordPress. By integrating WordPress with Freshdesk, you can make life easier for your customers by embedding an easily accessible and branded contact form that catches their attention. You can also help your support team by automatically converting new comments into tickets that they can monitor and reply to instantly.
With the Freshdesk help widget, you can embed a customizable contact form on your website. Customers can ask questions, contribute ideas and suggestions, and even attach relevant screenshots when they reach out to you via the form. These requests will come in as tickets into your Freshdesk account.
The help widget can also be set up to display relevant solution articles from Freshdesk that answer frequently asked questions from your customers. Your customers can therefore easily find answers on their own without having to contact your team. This feature can be really handy if your team gets a lot of repetitive how-to questions.
When you receive comments on WordPress, your agents do not have to manually convert individual comments into support tickets. Freshdesk takes care of this for you. By installing the Freshdesk plugin on WordPress, all WordPress comments are automatically converted into tickets. Along with WordPress comments, your team can respond to emails, tweets, and chats from within Freshdesk.
You can enable customers to securely login to your support portal using their WordPress accounts with single sign-on (SSO). For instance, premium customers who need to view restricted solution articles can easily access them on your Freshdesk portal using their WordPress credentials. This saves them the hassle of creating multiple login IDs and improves their user experience.
