Customer service plays an important role in an organization’s ability to generate income and revenue. A customer service experience can change the entire perception of a customer about the company and its products and services. Choosing the wrong solution can lead to problems for you and your staff and even cause loss of potential sales.

A help desk has several functions. The help desk manages its requests via help desk software that allows them to track user requests. There are many software applications available to support this function. Not all help desk software solutions are built alike. Some are for large enterprises and some are for small businesses. Some are proprietary and some are Free/Open Source Software.
