Badges create a fun and engaging workplace. With badges, the productivity in the office naturally increases. People love collecting and holding onto rewarding Badges and try to shake off the negative ones as soon as possible. Rewards and Badges are a part of the Gamification functionality.
Helpdesk managers have a simple and quick way to see who is producing the best results, responding to the most customers, selling the most products vs. who is slacking off with long periods of inactivity.
LiveAgent will assign the “Speedy Gonzales” badge to a support rep, who has the shortest response time.

Why customer support and loyalty initiatives are worth the investment
Customer engagement and loyalty are critical factors in business success. Engaged customers who have positive experiences with a brand are more likely to become loyal evangelists, driving referrals and generating new business. According to research, referrals from current customers generate 65% of new business. Providing excellent customer support is key to building long-term relationships and increasing customer satisfaction. This includes being responsive, efficient, competent, courteous, and consistent in communication. Businesses should also focus on creating unique value propositions that clearly communicate the benefits of their product or service and set them apart from competitors. Loyalty programs with incentives and rewards can also drive customer behavior and improve brand loyalty.
Help desk software is an effective management tool that focuses on serving customers and end-users by providing information, support, and assistance. With the right software, faster and more personalized responses can be delivered, while self-service options empower customers to resolve issues independently. Help desks can eliminate problems such as lost or unanswered tickets, delayed responses, and lack of responsibility. The use of help desk support can improve customer satisfaction, engagement, retention, and sales, as well as improve agent productivity and reduce stress and burnout. LiveAgent offers a free and easy-to-use helpdesk portal that can be customized to fit a company's needs.
Help desk notes are private notes that are only visible to help desk agents and are used to convey additional information about a ticket or customer. LiveAgent offers four different types of private notes and allows users to add them to tickets, contacts, or companies. Inline ticket notes are great for taking notes while communicating with customers and can serve as reminders for the next steps. Ticket notes can be used to write down specific details that need to be accessed while solving a ticket. Private contact and company notes are useful for disclosing additional information about customers and organizations. These notes are important as they can speed up ticket hand-offs between agents from different departments and also serve as reminders and to-do lists. LiveAgent's notes feature is extremely useful in the work of the customer service team.
