What is an e-mail ticketing?
For customer support, e-mail is the most preferred way for companies. The e-mail support staff is not only trained to handle e-mails, but also to track, organize, prioritize, and assign e-mails. It is a rather tough task which can lead to bad support services.
The agents filter out the important e-mails so that the important ones can be resolved as a priority. Tracking the status of the tickets is also the job of the agents so that all tickets can be closed after they have been resolved. Some tickets may need to be assigned to a different staff person, this is also done by the agents who work in the e-mail ticketing department.
