Hosted software, or open source?
It may seem like a daunting task to create a customer portal that allows users to check the status of support requests, track content, and review updates to knowledge bases and community contributions. It's particularly daunting when you have to build on open source code to do it. Your IT team could spend ages doing just that. Fortunately, Zendesk provides a hosted customer portal that allows users to do all of that from a single location. You're welcome, IT teams.
The inside scoop on open source portal software

And as agents benefit from the ability to search through previous tickets and interactions, they're able to increase efficiency and customer satisfaction.
Zendesk's customer portal meets user needs with:
- Information gathering - give agents the context necessary to resolve requests by choosing which fields customers complete
