Review Source: Capterra

The best part of TeamSupport is the support, the support team has helped us sort out every problem along the way and do it pretty quickly. If the software doesn't have the ability to do what you're trying to do, feature requests are often filled to meet your needs.

Pros
Easy workflow and team management - TeamSupport has improved our customer support vastly over the years, we use groups for our different support teams and brands to keep things well organized. Over the years we have taken advantage of more features and functions including asset management, automation and data management via API.

Cons
There isn't much that we don't like about TS, but our team would benefit from a better mobile version that allows you to easily update customer tickets, at the moment the mobile functionality is designed to be more of internal operations and collaboration rather than customer-facing.

Response from TeamSupport


Thanks for sending good vibes our way! Our primary focus is to ensure that our customers have the best possible experience while using the TeamSupport platform and enjoy all the benefits it provides.

We also realize that we need to continue to innovate and improve our user experience and you can look forward to several new updates to our platform this year.

Intuitive, Useful Software Company-wide

Overall, our company has toyed with the idea of using competitors but TeamSupport has held strong as a useful solution for us whose advantages outweigh its detractors.

Pros
I like the largely intuitive interface and functionality. Creating actions (public/private) are extremely easy as is pasting in-line images, adding attachments and customizing ticket types. Once saved, the formatting of actions are ideal and translate to what the user entered. Not all other ticketing software handles it this well.

Cons
Performance/stability has certainly improved over the years and has become more reliable. Despite that, there are the odd instances of slowness or degraded performance. The reporting could be more robust and easier. The ability to create more than one new (unsaved) ticket simultaneously would be very helpful.

Response from TeamSupport


Hi Tyler, Thanks for writing to let us know your thoughts about TeamSupport. While we were really glad to hear that you've generally had a good experience so far, it looks like we fell short in one area, and that's not okay. I want you to know that I've spoken to our Director of Customer Success about this, and we're going to make sure this isn't an issue moving forward. We're always improving our platform and will also make our development team aware to factor into future updates and enhancements.

We'll look forward to talking directly to learn more and I promise we'll find a solution to your issue.

Been on the system of a year and half and the same issue still plague me. I have submitted Numerous Feature Request and the sit in Pending or are denied. I have Many Many open Cases that are Bugs and they seem to go no where as well. I have one in particular the happens to me every day, But was told it wasnt a over all a big deal, and the work around is to copy and paste my action to a notepad, Hit Refresh on the Ticket, Start a new Action, Copy and paste my notepad back into the New Action. This seems a little much. I was also told of a Feature that was very important to us, would be coming. After a month or two on the system I inquired about it, and was told, nope cant do it. We constantly have to refresh the interface, Hangs up a lot. System Performance is a big issue. Does seem that all the server issues that were going on are better, but that was painful. We get a ton of SPAM cases, There needs to be a way to filter that by domain name.

Pros
-Its Cheap per seat, -Its customization of fields

Cons
-Being able to share a custom field between company and ticket, This is huge to us, Salesforce did it. -Your Text Formatting and editor is terrible. It constantly changed font sizes -The fact the you always have to refresh and update. If you have a ticket open on your tabs and something comes in, you have to refresh or close and reopen. Your new Screen capture program as it is easier to use the quality is terrible compared to what was there a year ago or whenever it was switched out. -The fact that I dont get my submits actions sent to my email, This needs to a field I can chose to receive or not -The fact that you cant duplicate a ticket -Cant Create Ticket Views for Individual user -Need Action the Save button at the top of the action as well as the bottom. -NeedFloating Formatting bar -Add option to minimize or +/- actions on ticket page -A way when a customer has multiple tickets open, and replies to the wrong ticket - To be able to move/merge that action to the proper ticket.

Review Source: Capterra

I personally like Team Support as it has optimized our business operations considerably. We create support tickets on this platform. We are able to track our inventory, we are able to create support tickets and keep them open till the issue is resolved. We are able to schedule email reports about the overall use of our company time and resources. We are delighted to see that Team Support is bringing new features on a periodic basis. I truly appreciate the webinars conducted by Team Support where they talk about new features and how to make best use of the software. I have acquired some interesting insights during the webinars and passed it on to my peers. Overall we like Team Support as it meets our current requirements and expectations .

Pros
I primarily use Team Support for Inventory Management. I like that I am able to search a terminal based on the serial number alone. It is helpful to leave a note for each terminal, I use the notes to indicate the current status of a terminal, whether it is ready to be loaned out or if it already been loaned etc. Team Support has a provision to assign an inventory item to a Customer. I find that very helpful. I like the feature where I am able to schedule the reports to be emailed to more than one email address. These reports need to be sent at particular time and day without fail. Auto scheduling the email report saves me a lot of time and complications. I also like the fact that Team Support is compatible for API Integration. We are looking to develop a centralised platform in our firm and want to be able to fetch info from Team Support for Data Analysis. This is in our pipeline and we are looking to implement this sometime in the future. In the past the upper management used to shoot us emails enquiring about the particular issue. It takes up our time to email the management back with the status of that issue. Now the upper management simply logs into team support to view and oversee the status of a ticket/issue

Cons
However, the frustrating part of Team Support is the reporting section. When I open up the inventory report, it displays a list of all the terminals I have added to the inventory and when I want to get more information on a particular terminal, I notice that I cannot click on the terminal to navigate to that terminals page. Not only that, I cannot copy the serial number of the terminal from the inventory report. This applies to pretty much all the reports. All reports are in read only format. I humbly request Team Support to make the items on the report as clickable and actionable in the future.

GetApp Analysis

A company’s customers are its most valuable asset, which is why customer support plays such a critical role in the growth of businesses today. TeamSupport is a customer support solution that uses a combination of collaboration features and real-time data to understand where pain points are located. As a result, businesses are able to deliver support to customers before they’re even aware that it’s needed.

Built for B2B software and technology companies, TeamSupport provides customer support by enhancing internal collaboration and breaking down the barriers that can trip up most organizations. TeamSupport’s most important features include advanced customer service portals, integrated screen recordings, real-time internal collaboration, built-in reporting tools, and multi-channel support.


What is TeamSupport?

A web-based collaborative customer service solution, TeamSupport enables organizations to work together effectively to support their customers’ needs. Rather than focusing exclusively on one-on-one customer communications, TeamSupport brings visibility into the picture and encourages full team collaboration to resolve ongoing issues. TeamSupport has developed a powerful user interface that puts all relevant customer data in one place.

Not only can TeamSupport help B2B software and technology companies better know their customers, but the software also improves support team productivity and enables full collaboration to solve issues in real-time. TeamSupport supports a flexible process flow, and the platform itself is designed in a way that is very intuitive and easy to use.


Who is TeamSupport For?

TeamSupport was developed for B2B software and technology companies with support and product teams. Any company that wants to better understand its customers and enhance internal collaboration can utilize TeamSupport’s web-based platform, regardless of the size of the organization or the number of employees.


Main Features

Creating a Customer Service Portal

Customer issues or questions can come in at any time, not just between the hours of 9 am and 5 pm, when support agents are in the office. With TeamSupport, organizations can create self-service portals where customers can help themselves—or each other—at any time, day or night.

The self-serve customer service portal you create with TeamSupport is easy to drop into your company website, so your customers feel right at home and not be directed to another location. Once integration is complete, customers can submit and check up on their tickets, and they can search the knowledgebase for answers to their own queries. Screen recordings and attached files can also help resolve lingering questions. TeamSupport offers community forums, along with a collaborative wiki feature that means documents never get stale and anyone can update them as needed.

Collaborating Internally with Colleagues

TeamSupport’s WaterCooler feature allows for internal conversations between TeamSupport users. To understand this feature better, the company recommends users imagine a Facebook that only their internal staff can access. WaterCooler conversations can be tied to tickets, customers, products or groups. A post being tied to tangible items means the team can easily search and find past discussions about a ticket, customer, product, etc.

The next time you have a question about a particular ticket or customer, post your query to the internal WaterCooler. Your colleagues will be able to see your post, and they can respond back with advice, feedback or support. Agents can “like” each other’s comments, which is a useful way to see which comments are the most helpful or provide the most information.

Assigning Tickets to Groups

Groups are an important part of the TeamSupport structure. When tickets are assigned to a group, rather than to an individual, then all members of that group are notified. Organizations can create as many groups as they need, and individual users can belong to multiple groups.

When a ticket is created by a creator who isn’t sure which who that ticket should be assigned to, Groups serve as a backup. Instead of guessing, and potentially selecting the wrong individual, the ticket creator can assign the ticket to a Group—usually, something like the Support, Product Development or Quality Assurance team. All members of that group will receive a notification, and any of those members can take ownership of the ticket.

Generating Real-Time Reports

TeamSupport puts real-time business intelligence capabilities at its users’ fingertips. With robust built-in reports, users can access detailed metrics to gain deeper customer insights. Powerful reporting capabilities include filtering, report cloning, enhanced sorting and individual viewer functions. Rather than having to pay for a third-party reporting add on to obtain powerful metrics, TeamSupport users get it right out of the box.

To get the most from TeamSupport, you can create detailed reports by summary, chart or graph. Custom dashboard views also let you showcase the information you need.

Consolidating Customer Interactions

TeamSupport enables users to consolidate all customer interactions. Information such as which other issues a customer has been having recently, who else has been contacting the business, and which other products the customer currently owns are all accessible through the TeamSupport system.

Quickly access every request or issue that a customer has made to your support department or help desk. With TeamSupport, you’re able to run reports to identify which customers are requiring the most time from your team members. These reports also make it possible to understand customers in a holistic manner. As a result, rather than seeing your customers as a collecting of individual tickets and support requests, you begin to get a more complete picture of what’s really going on. TeamSupport integrates with SalesForce, Oracle Fusion, and other CRM systems, which means that data can easily be synced between the systems.

Handling Product Management

It’s incredibly important that service, sales, and management teams know which products their customers are using. TeamSupport enables its users to understand not only which products their customers are using, but also which versions they are using. An unlimited number of products and versions can be associated with each individual customer.

Link specific product versions to a customer and a ticket through TeamSupport. Every product within the Products section should be defined by your company’s development/product management team, since doing so will allow you to generate reports that are based on the actual products and versions that your customers are using. You’ll also be able to see which tickets are associated with which versions of your product.

Tracking Physical Assets

Track physical inventory (assets) that have been shipped to customers through TeamSupport’s Inventory module. TeamSupport has also made it possible to associate assets to tickets, which makes for easier issue tracking.

TeamSupport’s inventory section includes room for assigned assets and unassigned assets, which are assets that haven’t shipped, but are available in the warehouse. It also includes space for junkyard assets, which are assets that are no longer functioning.


Integrations

TeamSupport offers advanced native integrations with a number of apps, including Salesforce, Highrise, Zoho, Oracle Fusion, Jira, Beanstalk, Mailchimp, Dropbox and NiceReply. TeamSupport is also on the Zapier platform, which allows customers to connect the various web apps they use day-to-day. Lastly, TeamSupport has a robust REST API for users who need custom workflow functionality between multiple apps.


Pricing

TeamSupport offers two plans, starting at $30 per user, per month. Free trials are available, as well. Customers can pay monthly by credit card, or they can opt to be invoiced for 6 or 12 months in advance to receive a discount
