It’s usually pretty difficult to tell when it’s time to upgrade a software system, especially when it comes to your help desk software. Even in the best cases, an outdated or small help desk system can be frustrating for everyone involved. Users are already upset that something isn’t working right on their end, and sometimes they have trouble being patient while your team searches for a solution.
Properly managing your help desk software is just as important as what solution you choose. Even if you have the best technology, if it’s not properly configured the software can create problems and hostility with its users. One of the best ways to optimize how employees utilize your help desk system is through implementing custom fields. Not only do they save time, but they also improve the communication of your team with customers and even between departments. Here are a few ways on how to set up a help desk software properly with custom fields to save time and money…

It’s easier and more profitable to sell to returning customers than to new ones. In an era of empowered consumers, companies are looking for ways to reduce customer churn with positive customer experiences. As technology empowers consumers, it also enables businesses; operational needs are being met with digital, primarily Software-as-a-Service (SaaS), solutions that can improve performance, efficiency, and results.
