Clarizen and Zendesk Release Platform Integration for Enterprise Customers1
Clarizen and Zendesk today announced that they have integrated their enterprise SaaS applications. Clarizen and Zendesk now work together ’out-of-the-box,’ combining Clarizen’s powerful on-demand work and project management software with Zendesk’s cutting-edge Web 2.0, on-demand customer support solution.
With the new integration, Zendesk users can seamlessly schedule and update support tickets within Clarizen projects. Similarly, Clarizen users can add project issues to Zendesk and have real-time status updates displayed within each application.
"Clarizen and Zendesk both understand the need for enterprise-ready tools that enable companies to sense and respond to business challenges in real time," said Avinoam Nowogrodski, founder and CEO of Clarizen. "Zendesk’s functionality fits seamlessly into our product offering, delivering our users an integrated view of the entire lifecycle of their business by connecting our project management with their customer-facing support."

"Working with leading SaaS vendors like Clarizen helps us deliver powerful integration points to our customers, providing a seamless experience for the user."
