WordPress Integration for Freshdesk with Single Sign-On (SSO) & Support Ticket Creation


Freshdesk is an omnichannel customer service software that brings all your customer conversations together in one place, whether it's email, phone, live chat, social or WordPress. By integrating WordPress with Freshdesk, you can help your support team by automatically converting new comments into Freshdesk tickets they can monitor and respond to instantly.

It also provides Single Sign-On (SSO) support for agents as well as contacts with the added functionality of converting WordPress comments into support tickets, eliminating the need for manual conversion of comments into tickets by your agents.
