Our Approach

Our approach involved understanding the client's unique requirements, identifying the limitations of their current system, and migrating them to HubSpot to optimize their processes. 

  • In-Depth Requirement Analysis: We began by conducting a thorough analysis of the client's specific needs. This involved engaging with different levels of their organization to gain a holistic understanding of their expectations and objectives.
  • Systematic Assessment of Current Platform: We closely examined the existing platform (Zendesk) to pinpoint its shortcomings. This evaluation focused on areas such as user-friendliness, functionality, automation capabilities, and integration with other tools.
  • Gap Identification: By comparing the client's requirements with the capabilities of their current system, we identified critical gaps. This included areas where the system failed to meet user needs, inefficiencies in processes, and limitations in terms of scalability and adaptability.
  • Stakeholder Engagement: We regularly consulted with key stakeholders from the client’s team to ensure that our understanding of their problems was accurate and that our proposed solution would align with their business goals.

The Solution

We implemented several strategic changes and systems to address the client's needs:

  • Data Migration and Cleansing: Migrated essential data from Zendesk to HubSpot after thorough cleansing and formatting.

After profiling the client, we went ahead with a strategic implementation plan for the client’s customer service requirements without disturbing any existing processes in place.

Here’s what the implementation schedule looked like:

Data Migration and Cleansing

  • Ticketing Pipeline and Workflow Enhancement: Redesigned the ticketing pipeline to accurately reflect the client's process and implemented automated workflows for ticket escalation.
