Overview

A helpdesk that helps you
"Track, prioritize, and solve your customer interactions with ease."

Organizations in today's times work hard towards maintaining their bottom line. Since the time organizations have started understanding the what and how of customer experience, they have been promoting a customer-centric culture. Even, Gartner has declared Customer Experience as the new battlefield.

Acknowledging the need to improve customer support and satisfaction is not enough. The organizations need to put in place the right measures to achieve the goals of delighting their customers. One of the most important ways of doing that is by having an Online Helpdesk Ticketing System.

What is a Helpdesk Software?

It goes by many names - helpdesk, customer support desk, or service desk software. But, by definition, a helpdesk support system enables the companies to resolve customer issues efficiently by simply automating complaint resolution process with ticket management. The lines can sometimes be blurred between a helpdesk management system or IT service management.

But, the helpdesk is primarily focused on managing customer concerns whereas, IT service management caters to the needs of the internal functioning as well.

There can be threefold advantages of having a helpdesk software solution for

  • Customers
  • Agents
  • Business

Customer Satisfaction

  • Faster Ticket Resolution: The customers do not care about what is happening within the organization. They are only concerned about their own concerns. Thus, having a help desk solution enables the agents to resolve the tickets faster. The agents can also get access to a repository of FAQs to answer the customer query faster to improve satisfaction.
  • Keeping the Customer in the Know: Customers like to know what is happening with their query. With a help desk software, sending out regular updates on the status of the customer's request becomes easier. The customers will be kept in the loop throughout the life cycle of the ticket and not just when it is resolved. Details are available on a click of button.
  • Multi-channel Customer Support: Customers like to connect with the support team through the channel of their preference. An omni-channel ticket management system enables just that. The customers get the freedom to raise a complaint from any medium - voice, email, website, apps, social media, etc. RSolutions eHelpdesk empowers the agents to create tickets irrespective of the channel.

Agent Productivity

  • Automating Ticket Creation: Creating tickets takes up most of an agent's time. But, this can be avoided. Especially, in case of mundane queries. The agent does not need to create a ticket manually, rather a ticket is created every time the customer contacts for the same or different issue. Thus, allowing the agent to focus on solving the problem at hand and not waste time on creating a new ticket every time.
  • Unified Agent Interface: Save time and improve agent efficiency by saving on the "number of clicks" the agent has to make to get customer information or to get a task done. With a unified interface, the agents can have a single view of the customer details - personal information, complaints and interaction history, etc..
  • Knowledge Base: Creating a repository or a knowledge base to help the agents answer mundane as well as exceptional customer queries. In case of exceptional queries, the agent who solves it can record and store their approach for others to refer when in a similar situation.

Business Benefits

  • Monitoring and Reporting: Enabling the supervisor to monitor the functioning of the contact center or business divisions with real time dashboards and detailed reports. The real-time data helps the supervisor to take informed decisions about resource allocation to ensure agent satisfaction and operational efficiency.
  • Service Level Agreements (SLAs): Keeping track of the SLAs help in making sure that they are not breached. With a help desk management software in place, the managers are not only able to set the SLAs but move or escalate things up in case of a priority case.
  • Ticket Prioritization: The supervisor can set the rules about prioritizing certain tickets or allow the agents to do so. This is particularly helpful in case of High Net Income customers or in case of tickets where the interaction history with the particular customer has been less than satisfactory.
  • Streamline Operations: With an all-in-one help desk management system, the organization can ensure seamless functioning. Be it ticket creation, assignment, escalating tickets or editing the customer information, the agent or supervisor can do it easily. Hence, no more disjointed conversations and better customer satisfaction.

Helpdesk Benefits

As the world of technology moves forward, more and more businesses are moving up to ticket management software to satisfy their customer support needs. However, some still believe that their current system still works well enough. In many cases, this system is simply an e-mail account that customers can communicate through. Although this does function, at least for smaller companies, it is far from the best option. A good ticket management software can be very beneficial to both your company, and your customers. Here are a few benefits of ticket management software that you may not have thought of.

eHelpdesk

Organization

One of the biggest benefits of using a ticket management software is the increased level of organization that comes from it. Although e-mail accounts become very messy and difficult to maintain as the load increases, ticket management software is designed to handle this. It will keep each help request sorted by customer and ranked by time or importance. It can keep track of what has been taken care of and what still needs to be done. This software really does a lot of what the customer support agent would have to do otherwise. Increased organization is a big factor in ticket management software that leads to a number of other benefits.

eHelpdesk

Efficiency

Because of the increased organization, ticket management software allows your company to respond to requests with much less effort than other systems. Increased efficiency means that fewer hours are required to take care of all of your customers' requests. Most importantly, efficiency means fewer mistakes. Your customers will be especially grateful for this

eHelpdesk

Speed

Your customers also expect their support requests to be answered quickly. While they may be willing to wait a few minutes, or even a couple of hours, they certainly don't want to wait for days or longer. A ticket management software combines organization and efficiency to create speed. This allows you to respond to requests much more quickly, even with less support staff.

eHelpdesk

Routing Options

Every customer's needs are different, and each of your support staff members have an area of expertise. Even if you are not aware of it now, they each have something that they are interested in, or an area in which they have a lot of experience. Ticket management software allows you to make use of these specialties, if you are willing to identify what each employee is best at, and supplement that expertise with a little extra training. The software can allow a customer to select the topic of a request, which will route it to a specific person.

eHelpdesk

Professionalism

The importance of professionalism is often greatly underestimated in the world of business. Companies will almost never do business with another company if they don't act professionally. In many ways, an e-mail support system, and many other outdated support systems, give off a strong feeling of unprofessionalism. On the other hand, a ticket management system is seen as new and forward thinking.

eHelpdesk

Automated updates to customers

Customers want to know what's going on as much as possible. A ticket management software can update users automatically when necessary. For example, customers hate to be kept waiting when they need a response to a question, but sometimes it is unavoidable. In this case, a customer will be much more patient if they receive a notification that it might be a little longer than they expect.

eHelpdesk

Records of previous communications with each customer

Customers don't like to be asked questions multiple times. When you use a ticket management software, you'll be able to keep track of all communications you've had with a customer, whether or not they're related to the current issue. This provides your staff with lots of helpful information, and prevents them from having to ask your customer questions repeatedly. This saves time and money for both you and the customer.

eHelpdesk

Statistics and analytics possibilities

In addition to keeping records of actual communications, you can also ask customers questions at the end of each support session, which allows you to collect data and perform analysis on almost anything, from how happy your customers are with your support system to how they feel about a product, or even your business in general.

eHelpdesk

Prioritization

Finally, ticket management software allows you to prioritize requests, which can be very beneficial. For example, you may want to insure that your best customer is always kept happy by responding to their requests first.

Required Software/System

RSolutions eHelpdesk Internal Server vs Hosted

RSolutions eHelpdesk Solution can be hosted on customer internal server or an external hosted server like Shared, Dedicated, Co-located or Cloud Server.

Customer Internal Server

In case it's hosted on internal server, customer needs to manage the following.

  • Installing a web-application on a server, install and administer MS SQL Server, create databases and run SQL scripts, configure IIS server basic settings, and other required settings and configurations.
  • Client-side requirements -Any computer, laptop, smartphone or a tablet with a browser (on PCs modern browsers are recommended: IE10+, Firefox or Chrome) with JavaScript enabled features.

eHelpdesk

System Requirements

  • Windows 2003/2008/2012/2016 Server or above. Please note that "client" versions of Windows, like Win7/Win8/Win10, have a limitation on how many concurrent web-server connections are allowed. A "Server" OS is highly recommended.
  • IIS Server 7+ (IIS 8.0 or above is highly recommended!)
  • .NET Framework 4.0 or above
  • MS SQL Server 2012 and above (the free Express edition is fine), optionally you can install
  • "Full-Text Search" for better and faster ticket search, but that's optional
  • MS SQL Server does not need to be on the same machine with the IIS server.
  • Install the product files manually by simply copying the files to your web-server and setting up the app in IIS as an "Application" and setting the right permissions and properties.
  • For outbound emails to work you need to setup SMTP services on your web-server.

eHelpdesk

Hosted Version

  • To save time and cost from configuring a server with required softwares, installing the ticketing system and maintaining updates later, we would recommend the hosted helpdesk which can be implemented and configured in couple of hours on Shared or Cloud (Amazon, Azure, or Other Cloud Platforms) Sever.
  • Hosted version can be installed on the following and the infrastructure can be scaled up as and when the business requirement grows. Hence help in achieving a better ROI.

eHelpdesk

A typical helpdesk ticket life cycle

  • A user submits a ticket to the web-based help desk software either using the web-interface or by sending an email or by calling an agent.
  • Your helpdesk team is notified of a new ticket by email or by other notifications like SMS or push notifications to their phones.
  • Both the technician/agent and the user interact by: posting replies and updates to the ticket attaching files. Optionally adding specialist to the discussion, or when a ticket needs to be escalated. All this is done using the online helpdesk's web-interface.
  • As soon as the issue is resolved, the technician (or the specialist) closes the ticket. The ticket then needs to be confirmed closed by the user as confirmation.
  • Optionally - the ticket is posted to the knowledge-base. The resulting knowledge-base article can be edited of course.
  • Custom statuses and workflow automation.
  • An administrator can optionally add one or more "custom statuses" in the helpdesk app, creating a unique workflow for his team. Like, for example, an "awaiting confirmation" status, etc..
  • You can additionally create "automation rules" that will automate your workflow, for example "when a ticket becomes overdue - add Administrator to subscribers, post an alert to the ticket feed and move to a status". This feature is sometimes called "macros", "workflows" or "automation" in different helpdesk apps.
