Basic Tracking in Outlook
If you and your helpdesk staffs rely on emails in Outlook as your primary support mechanism, chances of some requests getting lost in the cluttered Inbox are high.
In the first place, it is difficult to know when an email has been marked completed, who is currently working on it, or when a reply was received. Because Microsoft Outlook lacks the proper organization and tracking capabilities.
Moreover, Outlook itself is highly optimized for personal email exchange. As a result, it often falls short when it comes to providing a complete history of an event over time. This has a serious implication. Chiefly, Outlook simply lacks the automation, reporting, reminders, and workflow to manage a support ticket request.
Outlook Helpdesk Add-in
Outlook Helpdesk add-in is designed to collect tickets from emails, track and resolve issues within stipulated time, while sharing this information with your entire team.
In particular, it automatically processes incoming requests, assign technicians, set due date and send automated notifications. Consequently, this removes the overhead of manual tasks significantly, while making it easier for team to work flexibly. Moreover, the inbuilt knowledge base acts as an effective knowledge sharing medium for all members.
Additionally, it also helps in improving the average ‘First Call Resolution‘ timing significantly, as agents find resolution to problems quickly.
