    Thanks for the post, Ben. Although this wasn’t our finest day, we do feel that transparency around these things are pivotal for a young but aggressively growing company like Zendesk.

    I think the real amazing paradigm change here is the customer buy-in. All of our customers are on pay-as-you go plans and we’ve made it very easy for them to switch provider if they want to or need to. So we are basically all in the same boat. That gives us no other options than to play with open cards and do our utter best. And our customers appreciate that contract.

    Zendesk’s infrastructure is maturing vigorously as we now support thousands of businesses and millions of users. We will do better because we love our customers just as much as we love our help desk.
