Functional Odoo 15 Website&E-commerce

As a part of customer service programs in a company, it is essential to provide an adequate platform for customers where they can ask questions and submit complaints related to the product and services that the company offers. Needless to say, finding solutions for queries and complaints from customers and providing necessary support for them should be done as soon as possible. No matter the size and type of the business you are running, you must ensure that your customers are satisfied with your products and services. By understanding the importance and impartial role of customers in a business, almost all companies nowadays offer a helpdesk team to manage customer service programs and provide adequate support for the queries and issues from their customers.

There are multiple methods available for customers to ask queries and submit complaints. It can be easily done by phone calls, by sending Emails/SMS, by completing forms on company websites, or by directly visiting the office. For the smooth functioning of the customer service program, a comprehensive system is in demand to manage the issues/queries reported through all these methods. Here comes the Odoo ERP system to help you to simplify the customer service operations. With the assistance of Odoo 15, you can provide support to customers at the earliest.

The Helpdesk module in Odoo 15 will ensure easy functioning of the management of customer services. Odoo collects complaints and queries from customers through different platforms and saves them in the form of tickets. In order to collect, manage, and track these helpdesk tickets, you can assign a set of employees in the form of a helpdesk team. Based on the ticket submitted, this team will take the required action to solve the ticket. It is possible to configure various types of helpdesk teams in Odoo. You can publish separate forms for each of these teams on the company website so that the customer can easily submit their tickets.

In Odoo, you can collect helpdesk tickets from the Contact Page also. With the help of the Odoo Website Builder, you can publish a contact form on the Contact Us page. This form can be used to generate helpdesk tickets in the backend. When a customer completes the Contact form, Odoo will automatically generate a helpdesk ticket. This ticket can be managed in the Helpdesk module.
