Zoho makes web-based business tools. These tools include CRM Platforms, Online Workspace for Teams, Marketing Platforms, Human Resource Solutions, Business Analytics, and so on.
Haptik has done Zoho integration mainly focussing on two items, Zoho SalesIQ and Zoho Desk. Zoho SalesIQ is a live agent platform where agents can handle users' queries. Zoho Desk is a ticketing system, wherein every chat that an agent handles on the SalesIQ dashboard is added as a ticket, along with the chat transcripts.
These two platforms work hand-in-hand to provide a seamless experience to businesses, and when you integrate this with Haptik, you can leverage Haptik's bot with agent chat and ticketing system to provide a unified automated support experience on a single interface.
