Why You Need Case Management Software

As it currently stands, 87% of all company communications are via email. If you’re a young company you probably have set up a shared email inbox, such as Gmail, to handle all customer interactions. But as you grow, your customer support can’t survive on Gmail. Why? Because Gmail only has one inbox made for one person — it’s not built for teams and to deliver multichannel customer support. The result is that support tickets fall through the cracks and questions go unanswered, which may ultimately impact your bottom line.

The fundamentals of delivering amazing customer service on every channel is solid, multichannel case management. Case management does more than help you manage, prioritize and organize your customer interactions. It also clarifies to whom each customer case is assigned, its channel, its priority and when it was created, updated and resolved. This allows your support agents to address every customer case effectively and provide each customer with a consistent service experience.

What You Can Do With Case Management Software

Automate your Support

Using Desk.com’s Business Rules, you’re able to automate how responses go from your team to your customers. Whether the rules are simple (like automatically setting a priority to Twitter cases) or complex (like routing emails about “jobs” to HR), you’ll get through your messages a lot faster.

Get More Done, Faster

Case filters organize your customer cases into work queues. Create filters to view cases assigned to you, cases from a specific channel, and cases that are updated, pending or resolved. You know exactly what you need to work on and can avoid multiple people working on the same customer case.

Categorize Your Cases and Add Custom Information

Labels help you organize your customer cases into categories or work queues. Only you and your team can see your labels so whether you mark a customer case with “VIP Customer” or “Escalate Case,” the sender will never know.

Customer profiles and history at your fingertips

No customer likes to explain a problem twice nor does a support agent like to be in the dark about customers and their prior interactions. Case management lets you build a profile for each customer and keep track of all customer interactions. This makes it incredibly easy to track details about your customers and address them personally and effectively.
