What We're Building

Talkdesk is the world's leading browser-based call center software. Our out-of-the-box call center software solution helps growing businesses improve customer satisfaction, while simultaneously reducing support costs.

Using Talkdesk, businesses can create an entire call center in the browser in 5 minutes. No phones, hardware, coding or downloads required - all that is needed is a computer and Internet. With one click, Talkdesk integrates with Salesforce, Zendesk, Shopify, Olark and others to provide comprehensive information about customers.

Using IVR, ACD and skills-based routing, callers are routed to the agent who is most qualified to meet their needs based on customizable data. Talkdesk then displays the caller's name, image, contact information, purchase history and contact history in the agent's browser in real-time. With real-time and historical reporting, call monitoring and call recording, teams can make data-driven decisions based on comprehensive information.
