Ticketing system

What is a ticketing system?

A ticketing system is a tool, primarily for customer service. It helps customer representatives respond to inquiries from one interface without any struggles. Once a customer agent receives an inquiry from any channel it will be transformed into a ticket. These tickets can be found in a universal inbox. This way your customer agents respond swiftly and in a time-efficient manner.

How does the ticketing software work in LiveAgent?

After you register and go through the get started guide, you can start using the LiveAgent. After implementing all platforms, where your customers reach out to your company, you can start replying to inquiries. These customer inquiries will now be called Tickets.
