Today’s universities and school districts are continuously strained by budget cuts and rising demands — driving the pressure for smarter and more efficient education technology that is simple to implement with low risk.

Zendesk for Education streamlines your school’s or department’s support requests into a single, easy-to-use interface, no hardware, no IT maintenance, no training required. With Zendesk, you can intuitively manage requests and set up a knowledge base for FAQs. So instead of being overwhelmed with queries and complex IT tools, you can now simply focus on helping your students and staff.
