  5. Muhammad Zafar Sheikh

    Muhammad Zafar Sheikh

    Top Rated Zendesk and JIRA Customer Service Specialist

    Pakistan - Tests: 13

    I have 5 years of customer service & support experience. As a Level 1 Support Agent, I solve clients' issues by having interactions with them via telephone calls (using Zoiper softphone), email exchanges (using Zendesk ticketing system) and screen-share meetings with the help of GoToMeeting and WebEx. Sometimes a customer gets irritated due to complexity of the issue and the time it takes to get solved. In such cases, I don't just rely on sending them Zendesk email updates and telephone calls; I ask them to join me in a GoToMeeting or a WebEx session so I can have direct access to their environment. This way, either I am able to calm them by talking with them about the issue at hand offering my full support or I can rectify the issue instantly. If I have to access a customer's computer remotely to correct a problem, to install the software or to find the root cause of an issue, I also sometimes use TeamViewer. This strategy works like a magic and the irritated customer gets very excited and happy due to an instant resolution of a pressing issue. Not to mention, they always give me a WOW (5 star) rating. I also have a wealth of experience using Microsoft Office, Microsoft Project and my new favorite Google Drive. I can also set up new databases in MS SQL Server and then manage these databases smoothly. The technologies I routinely use to provide support to clients are listed below. I can use all these smoothly and without any problems: 1. Zendesk & JIRA ticketing systems. 2. Atlassian Confluence. 3. Zoiper softphone. 4. GoToMeeting, WebEx and TeamViewer. 5. Google Drive Suite (spreadsheets, forms, calendar, emails etc). 6. VMs and Remote Desktop Connection. 7. Skype. 8. FTP. 9. Several enterprise softwares that my company provides support for. 10. Screencasts and Wink Recordings. Why Choose Me: * I am a member of Upwork's Pro Customer Service Group. * I am a Top Rated customer service agent at Upwork with 100% Job Success. * 4.5 years (8000 hours) of Upwork experience working in customer & technical support. * Perfect 5-Star feedback on all 20 completed jobs. * More than 15 years of total professional experience of working in multinational companies. * Worked for more than 2 years in a managerial capacity as an Assistant Manager Finance.

    Talented & Experienced Bookkeeper/QuickBooks/Administrative Pro.

    United States - Tests: 5

    I've used QuickBooks professionally for five years. Over the years I've come in to assist owners with IRS audits due to poor bookkeeping, rectified files that had been severely mismanaged by sub-par bookkeepers, reconciled accounts, managed payroll, started files from scratch, A/P, A/R, and countless other facets of QuickBooks. I am seeking opportunities for ongoing management of your QuickBooks file. I can also fulfill short-term needs like finding and repairing errors in bookkeeping, or starting a new file for you. I can provide multiple enthusiastic references! I am professionally trained and intimately familiar with QuickBooks. I am very aware of how busy business owners and professionals are and what a relief it is to put a job in the hands of someone you can trust, because that's one less thing for you to think about! It's my commitment to not just do a great job, but to minimize the amount of effort you have to put into it as well as anticipate your needs. I want to answer your questions before you ask them, and only ask you questions when absolutely necessary. I look forward to working with you!
