Getting started with Influx:

Saturn came to Influx experiencing significant growth as the app expanded to more schools around the U.S. The brand wanted a support solution that would allow its internal core team to focus on the workflow and expansion of the app.

Influx built a 5 agent support solution to assist with email tickets and data entry. As Saturn continued to grow, Influx quickly scaled to 22 agents. The team solved a 15,696 ticket backlog and now assists with seasonal coverage for back-to-school in the fall. Influx helped Saturn make the switch to the Zendesk help desk platform and now has 10 dedicated Zendesk agents.
