Nortel Networks Corp., which was previously known as Northern Telecom Limited or Northern Electric, was a telecommunications and data networking manufacturer founded in Montreal, Quebec in 1895. Nortel, at its most successful, accounted for over a third of the total value of all companies listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange (TSX). The company employed more than 94,500 people around the world at that time and was headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario. Nortel filed bankruptcy in 2009, in the largest bankruptcy case in Canadian history, announcing it would sell of off assets and end its operations. This left shareholders, pensioners, and former employees with huge losses. During the period since the bankruptcy, the company’s executives continued to draw bonuses, angering creditors in Canada, the UK, and the US and leading to a protracted legal battle over the remnants of the business assets. In October, 2016, a settlement was reached to distribute $7.3 billion in assets to claimants, who expected to receive about 57 cents on the dollar for their claims.
Nortel was a leader in the telecommunications world, from the early years when it built a portable communicator for military field service during World War I, and creating a dial-up PBX system, to developing communications/satellite systems during the 1960’s, which was used by Hughes Aircraft Company, and launching the “Princess” phone with the handset dial that was the state-of-the-art in most 1970’s homes. The company was at the forefront of the fiber-optic technology switch that is currently under way due to its cost-effectiveness and reliability. The company also was the one that developed a billing system that allowed speech recognition technology to automate collect calls, and those billed to a third party or calling card. Nortel played a large role in moving the communications world forward into the networked world we have today.
Zendesk is a customer service software company that aims to build better customer relationships.
Founded in 2007, Zendesk was the brainchild of Mikkel Svane, Alexander Aghassipour, and Morten Primdahl – all former employees in the customer service industry. They created Zendesk as a straightforward and intuitive solution to customer tracking and incident reporting problems that they used to encounter in their day jobs.
The trio received $500,000 in seed funding from angel investor Christoph Janz in 2008. It was followed the next year by a $6 million series B funding from Charles River Ventures and Benchmark Capital. From Copenhagen, Denmark, the Zendesk headquarters moved to San Francisco, California.
Zendesk debuted on the New York Stock Exchange in 2014 with the ticker symbol ZEN and an IPO price of $9 per share. The company now has over 1,600 employees and serves 87,000 customers in over 150 countries. It has offices in London, Madison, Manila, Copenhagen, Dublin, Tokyo, Montpellier, Berlin, Melbourne, Singapore, and Sao Paulo.
Zendesk offers a suite of products that work together to help improve customer relationships. One of the most popular is Zendesk Support – a simple system that tracks, prioritizes, and solves customer support tickets. It is backed by experts (called the Advocate Team) that provide worldwide support through a variety of channels. It also has a Success Team that can work as an extension of the user’s own team, helping them create strategies and set goals to optimize the customer service experience.
Another well-loved product is the Zendesk Help Center, which delivers seamless self-service experiences to reduce support requests. It features a fully customizable Help Center, a knowledge base, an online community, and a self-service portal.
Users can also make themselves available across multiple channels through Zendesk Chat, Zendesk Talk, and Zendesk Message.
As one of the most popular CRM platforms on the market, Zendesk has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions.
In 2011, Zendesk won Best Relationship Management Solution at the SIIA CODiE Awards, the industry’s only peer-reviewed awards program. It also won in the Most Innovative Use of Big Data in the Cloud category of the 2014-2015 UK Cloud Awards Program.
FastCompany also ranked Zendesk fifth on its list of the Most Innovative Companies in Enterprise Software last 2016.
Zendesk founder Mikkel Svane has received accolades as well, including his inclusion in the Inc. Founders List in 2016 and Inc. Magazine’s Top 40 CEOs to Watch in 2015.
