What is Help Desk & Ticketing Software?

Help desk and ticket management software solutions are used to optimize the overall customer support services offered by companies. They are particularly beneficial to businesses who lack the resources to build large-scale customer support centres. These business applications provide all the tools necessary to support your agents in managing their workload and improving their performance.

Help desk software can be used for both internal technical support as well as external customer case management. These apps offer a more efficient way to track and organize tickets, record repeated incidents and problems, and standardize issue-solving procedures. Common functionalities include the ability to build a workflow, scripts and a customized knowledge base for easy referral by all agents.

Many help desk applications will enable your company to offer 24/7 customer support through the use of customer self-service portals. These online spaces include searchable knowledge databases, forums, FAQ’s, videos and other self-help documentation. This means your agents have more time on their hands to deal with more escalated issues.

The case management features common to help desk software allows you to store and archive personal customer information and agent interaction history. Agents are provided with instant access to a range of data from one platform. This speeds up customer waiting time as agents grab the data they need in seconds. Not leaving tools facilitate communication among agents. Case routing ensures specific issues are sent to the right agents. .

Help desk applications generally feature multi channel support across various communication platforms such as web, email, phone, chat and social media. Use these applications to identify key trends and measure the time spent by agents to resolve specific issues. Customer satisfaction and agent performance can be improved through the reporting tools offered by help desk applications.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Create and update the knowledge base
  • Track and archive issues and tickets
  • Answer, manage and record customer requests
  • Generate surveys and feedback forms
  • Create searchable help pages, forums and FAQ´s
  • Update customer profiles and cases
  • Set and track KPI´s, generating analytics reports
  • Improve methods of contact
  • Standardize rules and procedures

Who is the ranking for?

This ranking is for business owners and decision makers looking for a first glance at the leading cloud-based Help Desk & Ticketing software in the industry. The data serves as a point of reference highlighting the key factors that small businesses should look at when first analyzing a piece of software. These factors include user perception (reviews), compatibility (integrations and mobile app availability), market presence (media presence), and security features (security).

For more details on why we chose these data points, take a look at our industry research reports, which provide in-depth explanations of each data point, as well as trends in the industry.

How are the scores calculated?

An app’s score is calculated based on five unique data points and is completely independent of any relationships that GetApp has with app vendors. The data points are calculated as outlined below:

User Reviews

The score for user reviews is calculated using a Bayesian estimate, which is a weighted average that includes the number of reviews and the rating of an app, benchmarked against other apps in the category. This raw number is then scaled to represent a value between one and 20.

Integrations

Integration scores are calculated by scaling and adding two different averages for the number of listed integrations on GetApp: the first 15 points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the average for the top 25 percent of apps in the category, while the final five points are awarded for the total number of integrations scaled against the leader in the category.

Mobile Platforms

Mobile platform scores are calculated using data from Google Play and the Apple App Store. Five points are awarded for having an Android App, and another five for an iOS app. The additional 10 points are calculated based on the user ratings of the app in each store, rated out of five, for a total of 20 points.

Media Presence

Media presence is calculated using the number of Twitter followers and Facebook fans a vendor has. Each social network contributes a maximum of 10 points to the total score. The first five points are awarded for total number of followers scaled against the average number of followers that each vendor in the category has, while the remaining five points are awarded based on the total number of followers, this time scaled against the category leaders. The scores for Facebook and Twitter are added together for a total score out of 20.

Security

Security is calculated using answers from a vendor-completed survey. The questions in the survey are based on the Cloud Security Alliance self-assessment form as part of the Security, Trust & Assurance Registry. With 15 questions, each answer is assigned a point value based on vendor response, with additional points given for security certifications, for a maximum possible score of 20.

In the event of a tie, each data point is weighted for importance, with security taking precedent, followed by reviews, integrations, mobile apps, and media presence, respectively.
