Outpost: A Zendesk Inbox Alternative

As you may already know, Zendesk recently announced that they’re going to remove their standalone email app, Zendesk Inbox, and existing customers are being asked to migrate to Zendesk Support.

Now is a good time to evaluate Zendesk Inbox alternatives like Outpost.

Truthfully, Zendesk does a great job offering full-stack solutions for robust customer service teams. However, customer service and ticketing tools like Zendesk Support offer pricey plans with features that your team may not actually use. Your team might not need ticketing, connected social channels, web widgets, workspaces, net promoter scores, time-tracking and project management integrations, macros, and more.

Those extras might seem nice, but do you really want to pay more money for features you won’t use? Sometimes, you simply need a straightforward email solution that your team can use to collaborate on shared inboxes like info@, support@, and sales@.

Outpost is that straightforward solution.
