What is a ticket?
A ticket is a service request from an end-user. Service requests can be from a multitude of communication channels. Such as email, live chat, social media, or even through the phone. Every time a new customer communication comes in, ticketing software automatically converts the interaction into a support ticket with an ID.
Support ticket features:
Immediately identify the customer’s inquiry with a ticket ID. Simply, add information or communicate the ticket status to a customer.
Never lose track of your customer inquiries with the ticket phase feature. The ticket phases can be shown as; Open, New, Closed, etc.
Automated Ticket Distribution
To have efficient customer service, you need to rightfully divide the number of tickets, calls, chats each customer representative gets per shift. As a result, you can prevent agent burnout and increase overall efficiency. Automated ticket distribution allows you just that. You can define the amount as well as a break that the agent should take throughout the day.
Support Ticket Ownership – Responsibility
Having centralized ticketing software for your customer service agents is a useful system for many reasons. Not only can you see agent performance reports, but you can also see which agent has dealt with which ticket. This prevents more agents from working on the same customer issue. Moreover, you can easily detect who was responsible for a specific customer issue. Also, if you need to transfer the customer to a different department, you can easily transfer the ticket ownership. As a result, you will never hear: “I didn’t know it was my responsibility.”
