It is clear by now, that if you want to provide a superb customer service you need a helpdesk solution ASAP. Yes, it is, indeed, very comfortable way of communication both for your customers and employees, but this is not the greatest benefit of them all:

1. Managing the problems – the option of trend analysis is one of the best benefits from using help desk solutions. By analyzing the frequency of a problem by how often it appears and how much of your clients have it, you can prioritize your solutions and give better and more punctual answers to the most common questions your clients have. This can also lead to new ways to improve your product or service. Basically, by categorizing the clients’ problems, you can make another step towards bigger profitability.

2. Access from anywhere – nowadays, more and more people work from remote offices or from home, which can cause problems with security or system access. With a nice help desk solution you won’t have such problems, because your employees can access your system wherever they are. Furthermore, you can analyze and monitor the whole operation from afar.

3. Reports – through help desk solutions you can export, schedule and send reports, whether they are basic, customized, pre-defined or standard. You can quickly get easy access to the information from the tickets, for the problems and the everything you need through a report in the most common formats (HTML, PDF, XL, CSV)

4. Security – one of the best benefits – you can regulate the access to specific departments of your help desk, both for customers and employees. You can also use different tools to prevent spam, by requiring human validation. So, you can grant or restrict access to whatever you want and whoever you want.
