How Accounts tab is useful for support agents?

The Accounts tab offers various features that help businesses manage customer accounts efficiently. Here are some of the essential use-cases of the accounts tab:

1. Customer information

The accounts tab provides detailed customer information, including contact details, account information, and a summary of customer activity. The Companies tab typically displays basic information about each company, including the company name, address, phone number, and website. This information can be useful for quickly identifying the company and its location.

2. Contacts

The Contacts tab displays a list of contacts associated with each company. This can include the names and email addresses of the company’s employees who may be contacting your support team.

3. Ticket history

Another important feature of the Companies tab is the ability to view all tickets associated with a particular company. This can be helpful for identifying trends or recurring issues that may be affecting multiple customers within the same company. It can also help you prioritize your support efforts for high-value customers or companies that require extra attention.

4. Contact comments

We also allow you to add comments to a contact’s profile. These comments can include important information about the contact’s history, preferences, or any other relevant details that can help your support team provide better service. Contact comments help agents take notes on individual Contacts. You can keep it private to yourself or you can make it public to other agents. These comments can also be added and viewed from the Ticket Details tab while viewing tickets created by a contact.

5. Secondary email addresses and merging contacts

In addition to all of these, you also have the ability to include secondary email addresses linked to a particular contact, and the capability to merge duplicate contacts.
