Processes & Automation

Working effectively with tickets requires more than just the possibility to manually change their state, add information, communicate with other persons and finally close the tickets.

Automation frees agents from reoccurring and time-consuming tasks and allows them to focus on activities, where their interaction is required.

Process management guides customer users and agents through ticket creation to closure ensuring that tickets take defined workflows at any time.

OTRS offers many options to automate tasks based on events, time, external systems and defined processes. OTRS also includes the possibility to add individual information types to tickets and help agents to lower their error rate when working with tickets by allowing only defined activities for tickets in specific states.
