Get a better understanding of your customers

Customer Profiles bring you relevant customer data, directly to your Help Scout Mailbox. For even more detail, you can integrate with your CRM and Communications tools.

  • Understand your customers better

    In the Customer Profile pane, you’ll see all the times a customer has communicated with your team — making it easier for you to respond effectively.

Take the guesswork out of customer support

Stop wondering if your email response made an impact. Compared to Outlook, Help Scout provides tangible data through Reports, so you can:

  • ✔  Track how many messages your team receives

Conquer your customer support queue with Workflows

Email filters in Outlook are only the beginning. Help Scout’s Workflows are based on if/then logic, and are as easy to set-up as filters. They get repeatable tasks out of the way, so you can focus on what’s important: helping your customers.

Examples of what you can do with Workflows:

Automate actions
Send bulk replies
Create folders
