6 of the Best Free Linux Customer Service Trouble Ticketing Software

Aug 27, 2010, 01:34 (0 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to LinuxLinks for this link. ]

"A customer service trouble ticketing (or help desk) is an information and assistance resource that helps the resolution of computer related problems. Companies seeking to offer better customer service often provide help desk support via the telephone, website, and or by email. Help desks may also be established simply for internal use, to provide help to a firm's employees. The importance of the help desk cannot be overrated, and it represents a core part of a successful business.

"Help desk software is crucial to the smooth operation of a help desk and customer support staff. Without high quality software, tracking help desk support issues can be extremely difficult and can result in the deterioration of customer relationships. Tracking and responding to help desk calls is quicker and more effective when using well designed help desk software. This type of software helps organisations to manage their email better, as well as offering powerful request management, and an audit trail, logging and tracking users' requests for assistance.

"There is a good selection of open source help desk software available for Linux."
