A ticketing system is a tool that enables companies to handle customer questions and requests in the form of tickets. Here’s how:

  • When a customer contacts a support agent, if the agent is not available online, a ticket is raised.

  • The ticket contains the customer question and all other details of the customer, including when was the ticket raised

  • Once the ticket is created, it is assigned to a support agent. This is done after seeing what kind of query does the customer have. If it is technical, it is forwarded to the tech team. And so on.

  • Once the ticket is issued to the right team, they get on it and resolve the customer query as soon as possible.
