AI-powered search

Search that goes beyond keyword matching

Alterra Search employs our proprietary Deep Learning-based NLP engine to interpret user queries based on their meaning - not just keywords.

The cognitive search engine improves the accuracy of the default Zendesk search from day one, and gets even smarter and more accurate over time.


AI-powered topic analytics

Alterra offers comprehensive analytics that not only counts pageviews and queries, but also clusters customers’ queries by topic and shows how often people ask about each topic, so you can easily find out what issues your customers encounter most often.

Content syncing

Automatic syncing with Zendesk Guide
