It is not uncommon for a company to use multiple Zendesk instances. A company may choose to have multiple Zendesk instances to support multiple business groups within the company or because of mergers and acquisitions. However, most of the time the company will still have a single CRM instance where all of their customer data lives. The challenge is then how to link all of those Zendesk apps with a single CRM.

Now Supporting Multiple Installs

With the latest Fanatically Zen release it is now possible to sync multiple Zendesk instances with a single SugarCRM or SuiteCRM instance.

Have an instance for different product lines?

You can do that.

Do different departments run their own Zendesk apps?

Sync them all to Sugar.

How does it work?

You decide.

Do you want a contact in Sugar to exist in all Zendesk instances?

You can do that.

Do you want to have that contact only live in a specific Zendesk instance?

Hey, no problem-o. That can be done as well.

View Zendesk Tickets in Sugar

Does a customer belong in more than one Zendesk instance? All tickets from all of those instances will be displayed in a single dashlet in Sugar. Each ticket will show a label that specifies the exact Zendesk instance it is from.

If your customers exist in only one Zendesk instance, you can select a field that determines which Zendesk instance we should lookup tickets in.

View Sugar data in Zendesk

With multiple installations of Zendesk you can define custom views in each for which data from Sugar should display.

This is especially handy when employees in the first Zendesk instance only need access to certain CRM fields while employees in the second Zendesk instance need access to other CRM fields.

When you have the Zendesk to Sugar syncing enabled with multiple Zendesk instances syncing, you choose exactly which data syncs to Sugar for each Zendesk instance.
