How Citizens Advice uses G Suite and Freshdesk

Citizens Advice is a network of nearly 300 independent charities in England and Wales. The organization provides free consultation on issues like housing, immigration, and consumer rights, and employs 30,000 staff across 2,700 locations. More than three-quarters of the staff are trained volunteers who work remotely. With so many inquiries per year, it’s imperative that Citizens Advice has the tools to collaborate, analyze and improve customer experience, particularly when bringing together so many independent partners. Plus, the organization requires a solution that can integrate directly with existing IT infrastructure.

Citizens Advice chose G Suite and Freshdesk to help with this. Says Simon Sheridan, product manager at Citizens Advice, “G Suite and Freshdesk help our teams collaborate and create more value for our customers every day.” The organization uses both tools to:

  • Collaborate with distributed teams. G Suite apps like Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides and Calendar help Citizens Advice organize customer support processes, and to collaborate across distributed teams, including its large network of volunteers.
  • Create better support functions for customers. The company uses integrations with G Suite and Freshdesk to mitigate customer support issues quicker. For example, Citizens Advice uses Hangouts to resolve customer issues face-to-face.
  • Analyze and optimize the customer support process. With tools like Freshdesk and Freshservice by Freshworks, Citizens Advice is able to analyze and improve the customer support process. The company also monitors and reports on each stage of the customer journey using G Suite tools.

As a business leader, whether you’re keeping books up-to-date, sharing data with investors, or connecting with advisors in real-time, combining cloud-based technologies like G Suite and Xero can help you collaborate quickly and securely to keep company financials on target.

Gimme Vending is a great example of a company that’s taking advantage of real-time collaboration.

With these integrations Gimme Vending and Acuity Accounting can:
