The Zowie Team

On January 31, 2024, we launched Zowie Inbox 2.0 — something you've all been waiting for.

Leveraging X2, our groundbreaking generative AI engine, this game-changing platform is set to revolutionize the customer service experience by allowing teams to boost efficiency and personalization all within a single tool.

How will these changes affect you?

Our aim with Inbox 2.0 is to supply teams with 2 major benefits: greater productivity and unmatched personalization.

Greater productivity

Agents spend most of their time working in your help desk. To enable their success, it’s vital to provide a user-friendly ecosystem free of barriers. Inbox 2.0’s powerful features and intuitive interface empower agents to save seconds on every task — leading to hours reclaimed every single day.

Unmatched personalization

Agents interact with all kinds of customers and cases — consistently striking the right note can be quite the challenge. Inbox 2.0 does the heavy lifting, giving support reps the resources to quickly deliver on-brand replies that suit each customer’s unique needs. With customer details, auto-assignment features, and generative AI writing assistance available in one convenient location, agents are fully equipped to give every ticket the human touch with one click.
