Customer service management is more important than ever.

Every customer inquiry is an opportunity to strengthen the customer relationship and shape it positively for the long term. Good customer service means providing the best possible support to the customer from the first moment of contact.

This requires:

  • perfectly equipped teams with the right tools,
  • allowing the customer to make inquiries through various channels,
  • offering a solution as quickly as possible, and
  • having efficient internal and external communication.

Customer service software creates the best conditions for these.

What is customer service software?

A customer service team has to handle countless customer inquiries every day — as quickly as possible and with a satisfactory result. This is made all the more challenging today, because customers no longer contact you only via email or phone, but also via social media and other channels.
What is needed today is a tool based on a ticket system that:

  • structures communication,
  • reates transparency,
  • supports agents with assignments and
  • enables automation.

Email vs ticket system

In contrast to communication via email, with customer service software based on a ticket system, incoming requests are immediately classified and assigned to the appropriate department — whether ITSM (IT Service Management) or typical customer service. Requests end up exactly where they belong. Service requests, fault reports or purely informal inquiries are addressed to employees, departments or specific phases of the service process to ensure that they are processed quickly. All required information is available in the ticket for all involved. Escalation and notification functions support and ensure that no ticket remains unanswered. Thanks to a wide range of reporting functions, weak points can be identified at an early stage and counteracted.

In a nutshell, customer service software helps service teams handle customer requests efficiently and ensures that customers get the support they need from the start.
