What is an Email Ticketing System?

An email ticketing system is a software application that helps businesses convert their customer service emails into trackable support tickets. With an email-based ticketing system, you can stay on top of every email and ensure not a single support opportunity is missed or a response is delayed. Support agents can prioritize urgent emails, monitor first response time, and use canned responses for faster replies.
