“Our customers and partners expect a fast and seamless service experience, said Guy DiMaggio, SVP, Operations, iPayment. He added, “And, 91% of customers expect to receive consistent information over multiple contact channels. The Zendesk customer service platform powers a robust data repository, real-time ticketing and inquiry tracking and a myriad of workflow automation, all of which will help iPayment exceed customer expectations in delivering an omni- channel support experience.

  • Customer-facing issue resolution management, or ticketing, system
    • Submit requests, along with any supporting documentation, to customer support via web and/or mobile device, 24/7/365
