Zendesk is having a big week.
On Tuesday, the company launched a new sales automation tool, called Sell, as well as a custom app development tool called Sunshine. ☀️
The significance of the launch
Largely known as a major player in customer service software, Zendesk acquired sales force automation startup Base in September to expand into CRM.
Now, Sell's launch marks the first step in Zendesk's plan to introduce technology for sales among its suite of products. 🤝
🙌 Sell aims to enhance productivity, processes and pipeline visibility for sales teams.
💸 The tool will cost $19 per user per month.
👀 It also comes with features like drag-and-drop dashboards and over 30 out-of-the-box reports
Understand customer data wherever it lives
Sunshine, Zendesk's development platform that also launched this week, will be available for free as part of the company's enterprise tier.
Sunshine is built entirely on AWS and has a ton of features, including:
👁 A single view of customers from across applications
🕐 An events tool that lets companies create a timeline of customer activity
💭 A “Custom Objects” feature lets users store random customer information
