With the level of competition out there, you simply cannot afford to cut back on the solutions that will ensure that you offer excellent service that has been proven to improve customer loyalty and increase sales. These days, consumers have no hesitation about expressing their dissatisfaction with products and services. And with the rise of social media, they have a channel to release their rants and bad reviews which can be viewed by their entire network and even be shared.
It’s important now more than ever to leverage help desk software that can significantly improve your customer service. Here are 3 ways that help desk software helps businesses like IT companies improve their service:
Gain Customer Insight
When you receive tickets from your clients, you’re not just being flooded with issues but you are also gaining valuable insight into what your clients want. Your help desk software collects important data that gives your team enough information to avoid future issues so that you can avoid losing sales.
You can discover what issues your clients encounter the most. TeamHeadquarters, a Service Desk application, has a help desk component that uses problem management to help you manage large volumes of tickets relating to a common problem. Not only would you be able to resolve the issue more efficiently but you would recognize which incident arises the most frequently.
With customer support software integrated with your other business systems and all your departments have to access it, the decision-making process is improved across all levels.
Furthermore, you can use it to measure key metrics that your employees can use to allow them to improve consistently. Not only is your team addressing customer needs more adequately but communication across all departments is improved.
Increased Office Efficiency
When the client’s data history is readily available because it is searched quickly, customer support doesn’t need to have the customer repeat what their issues are. The central system easily pulls up their account and issues can be resolved right away.
And because incoming tickets, incoming responses, and updates, are all connected by one platform, agents are saved from having to log in and out of multiple websites just to gather all the customer details that they need.
Help desk software is also an excellent tool where the support team can discuss specific tickets. They can communicate directly on the software where all the data is already stored instead of having to have physical meetings or phone calls. This is a much more efficient way for issues to be resolved and for your staff to carry on with other tasks.
TeamHeadquarters provides your IT services team with a secure, role-managed ticketing system that includes an easy-to-use, responsive interface. Service Desk contains essential components of Gartner’s ITSSM Tools and ITOM. Your team and customers benefit from limitless ticketing, problem management, file management and integrated scheduling and time tracking.
