The procedure of resolving a problem reported to help desk usually consists of four phases - problem identification, problem reporting,
problem resolution and user notification. Web-based helpDesk system can improve customer satisfaction and productivity by streamlining help
desk procedures. Customer support information is also a great source for business intelligence. Analysis of customer
support database can provide insights into customer needs, behaviors and offers valuable feedback for improving overall business processes.
Web-Based Helpdesk Software offers solution for easy creation of online support database. Once a customer or a user is aware of a problem,
he/she can search support knowledge database to narrow the scope of the issue. Customers may be able to resolve some problems as a result of
searching online support database. This will significantly reduce the cost and amount of support at help desk.
If the customer wasn't able to find the solutions on the Web-based support knowledge database, he/she can report issues on the Web. The software
enables customer support representatives to response to customers timely and accurately.
During the resolution phase, customer support staff will be more productive as a result of using help desk systems. Help Desk systems can facilitate
coordination of team work and assign support requests to proper support team members. Web-based help desk systems allow the support staff to keep
track of frequently asked questions and answers. Creation of support knowledge base will reduce the needs of live customer support and promote
the reuse of support knowledge database.
Once the issues are resolved, customers can be timely notified by emails. Email notifications facilitate the communication between the support team
and the customers. The customers are always kept well informed as to the progress of their requests. The email notifications are automatically
generated when issues are resolved or updated by the support staff.
