AppNeta Announces Support for Service Apps with SaaS Application Monitoring Quick Start Workflows for Desk.com and Zendesk
Optimizing the customer support experience with plug and play performance monitoring workflows
BOSTON — March 30, 2015 — AppNeta, the leader in performance and availability insight for business-critical web applications, today announced application extensions for Desk.com and Zendesk with its SaaS Application Monitoring (SAM) solution. These Quick Start Synthetic Workflows allow AppNeta users to more easily and effectively monitor SaaS applications from the end-user, through the network all the way to the SaaS provider.
The need for easy-to-use SaaS service desk applications is rising as businesses become more agile and move their critical applications to the cloud. SaaS-based service and support desk applications help businesses create a one-stop resource for clients and users, track trouble ticket time, group purchase requests and prioritize tasks. Businesses are then able to meet the needs of their clients by ensuring a successful service experience, thereby creating less shopping cart abandonment.
SAM’s performance monitoring gives the IT team visibility into the root cause of any issues impacting support application performance, assuring a successful user experience with that support application and, as a result, the brand leveraging that application. In a 2013 Deloitte survey of 5,000 online global consumers, 83 percent indicated that they consistently needed some type of support during their online shopping journey. A significant percentage of these online consumers, 71 percent, expected support within five minutes, 82 percent noted quick issue resolution as the most important element of a great online experience and 56 percent expected their issue to be resolved in a single interaction. If support was not received within five minutes, 48 percent indicated they would abandon their shopping cart, resulting in lost sales.
“AppNeta’s SAM solution and Quick Start Workflows provide immediate visibility into the growing world of business-critical SaaS applications,” said Matt Stevens, CEO and President at AppNeta. “This visibility helps businesses understand what’s going on and prevents costly downtime.”
