Cupertino, CA (PRWEB) February 08, 2012
The OTRS Group, the world's leading provider of open source Help Desk and ITIL® V3 compatible IT Service Management (ITSM) solutions, today announced that Ivycorp, a technology business based in Washington State, chose OTRS Help Desk to improve their customer service performance. Ivycorp was impressed by the responsive, high quality customer support from OTRS, as well as the available iPhone and iPad Apps for OTRS, which allow customer service to be more flexible and agile.
Ivycorp is the provider of Ivytalk®, the next generation in mobile messaging, which enables customers to channel and synchronize their group communication via email, SMS, smartphone app, desktop widget or pager, so everyone can be reached everywhere in the manner best for them. The customer service team of Ivycorp takes care of customer requests and questions. .
Previously, using a simple email alias for forwarding customer requests to a two-tier customer support team made it hard to track end user issues and team member responsibilities, causing increased stress and reduced productivity among members of the team. Ivycorp needed a Help Desk system that was able to fit their small scale and budget, yet grow incrementally with the business. They found that OTRS is a solid and reliable open source software solution that was easy to configure and free of license costs.
According to Mary Jesse, CEO and Founder of Ivycorp, “OTRS's excellent and timely customer service as well as their excellent feature set convinced us to use their solution. OTRS was very responsive during our assessment which included email and phone questions. We also benefit greatly from the depth of documentation, videos and webinars available from OTRS.”
By implementing OTRS, Ivycorp increased the flexibility of their customer service process, as Tony Billera, Head of Customer Operations at Ivycorp explains: “Most administrator and agent actions can be managed via either the iPad or iPhone, which I normally carry everywhere. It is not necessary to open, boot up, and login via my laptop to provide customers with great service and support.”
