GitHub integration with Zendesk Support use case 

A large company with extensive IT department infrastructure has introduced GitHub and Zendesk Support to elevate the streamlining of issue management. There are two teams that operate the systems. Yet, often, those teams do not directly communicate and exchange important data. This is the result of a lack of integration between their systems. Without automated synchronization, customer-reported issues in Zendesk remain isolated from the development workflow in GitHub, leading to data silos and manual data entry. This manual effort not only consumes time but also risks errors and delays in issue resolution.  

Furthermore, poor collaboration between customer support and development teams, coupled with disjointed workflows, affects productivity, and leads to inconsistencies in issue tracking and resolution. For such complicated situations, ZigiOps could be the much-needed solution. It instantly connects the systems, eliminating all the above-mentioned obstacles. If a ticket is submitted through Zendesk Support , ZigiOps captures it and automatically generates a corresponding GitHub Issue, ensuring that customer-reported problems seamlessly transition into the development workflow. Conversely, when the development team identifies and resolves an issue within GitHub, the updates are mirrored in Zendesk Tickets, allowing customer support representatives to stay informed of the progress and provide timely updates to customers. This bi-directional ZigiOps integration fosters efficient communication and collaboration between teams, leading to faster issue resolution and improved customer satisfaction.

About GitHub

GitHub is a web-based version control system and collaboration platform primarily used for managing software development projects. It provides a centralized repository for storing code files, enabling teams to track changes, collaborate on code development, and manage project workflows efficiently. With robust version control capabilities, GitHub allows developers to work concurrently on code branches, merge changes seamlessly, and maintain a complete history of code revisions. Beyond version control, GitHub offers integrated issue tracking, code review tools, and project management features, facilitating smooth collaboration and coordination among team members. Its extensive integration ecosystem further enhances its utility, allowing seamless connectivity with various development tools and services.

About Zendesk Support

support interactions across various channels, including email, chat, phone, and social media.

Challenges for GitHub and Zendesk Support users 

When GitHub and Zendesk are not integrated, users face several challenges that hinder their efficiency and productivity. Operating these platforms separately results in fragmented workflows, as users must switch between GitHub for development tasks and Zendesk Support for customer support tickets. This fragmented approach leads to data duplication and inconsistencies, increasing the risk of errors in issue tracking and resolution. Moreover, the lack of integration limits visibility into the status and progress of issues across platforms, hampering communication and collaboration between development and customer support teams. As a result, teams may experience delays in providing timely support to customers and encounter barriers to effective coordination. Overall, the absence of integration reduces productivity and efficiency for both development and customer support teams.

However, by implementing ZigiOps, a robust integration platform, these challenges were effectively eliminated. ZigiOps seamlessly connected GitHub and Zendesk, allowing for automated synchronization of data between the two platforms. This integration streamlined workflows, reduced data duplication, and improved visibility into issue status and progress across teams.

Why integrate GitHub and Zendesk Support? 

Companies seek to integrate Zendesk Support and GitHub to streamline their operations and improve collaboration between development and customer support teams. By integrating Zendesk, a customer service platform, with GitHub, a version control and collaboration platform, companies can ensure smooth communication and data flow between customer support tickets and development tasks. This integration enables teams to track customer-reported issues directly within their development workflow, facilitating faster issue resolution, enhancing visibility, and ultimately improving customer satisfaction. However, this is only possible if the integration of GitHub and Zendesk Support is successful and the channel for communication between them is established. Utilizing ZigiOps guarantees this. Even more, ZigiOps enhances the collaboration between teams, elevating their performance to an unprecedented level.
