HelpDesk and Project Management for Software Companies
Software Development has tons of moving parts; all which must work together and follow strict timelines in order to proceed to the subsequent phases. Your product, development, and support teams must be completely synchronized in order to have successful releases. To help maintain this connectivity amongst one another, it’s essential to have a system in place to keep everything organized. OneDesk combines Help Desk & Project Management software into one application. It increases efficiency by eliminating the need to switch between multiple applications.
Utilizing the Help Desk side of OneDesk enables convenient ticket and customer/end-user management from all team members including: Engineers, Quality Assurance, and Technical Managers. With large volumes of incoming issues, a centralized system needs to be in place to host, organize, and manage requests. OneDesk allows you to manage tickets, maintain a knowledge base & FAQ, create automations and export intuitive reports.
The Project Management side of OneDesk is a great way to manage bug tracking, time tracking, project & iteration planning, feature prioritization and road-mapping. You can set project goals, make sure your team is on schedule, and track performance.
