Cloud Help Desk

Coolrain Helpdesk System

Call Center Ticketing System

New SLA Features Release v.2.0 Dec2015


'Coolrain' is an advanced web application service that will be useful in many organisations - a complete packaged Ticket Management System which can be used by an internal ITIL based Service Desk, or any variant of Help Desk, it can even be applied more generally within a project for issue reporting and control.

Complete with all the latest 'Self Help' and Social Media features Coolrain is designed to reduce the level of direct support needed to end users and improve their experience of the help desk service, leaving the support agents with more time to provide direct help.

User Self Help is provide by end user Forums, Frequently Asked Questions, and 'Self Logging' of calls when they are unable to find their own answers. Users can log problems (using a browser form) choosing their own priority, any critical 'Out Of Hours' problems can raise trigger alerts via SMS to your key support roles. This feature works on every smart mobile phone.

End users can also simply Email the Service Desk problem reporting Email Address 'support@...' when Coolrain will automatically create a Call Log pre-filling key fields with the information taken from within the Email body. This Feature adds to the whole range of end user 'Self Service' facilities, and will be of particular use when there is no telephone support service provided.

Coolrain comes complete with an in-built CHAT facility, where anyone who is logged in can join pre-allocated chat Rooms which can be set up specifically for particular incedents, ideal for ITL focussed processes.

Your SaaS Cloud Help Desk

Coolrain is provided as a fully managed on-line service which we host on your behalf via the Web (using the PaaS model), you need not worry about backups or any other operational aspect - just connect and go!. Using the 'White Label' options you can provide an integrated look-n-feel for your support requirements.

Pay just $20 pcm / Agent

This fantastic 'PAY-AS-U-GO' application is delivered as a cloud service, you can utilise our managed PaaS (Platform_as_a_Service) platform, or we can host the application on your own dedicated server, this approach is termed 'SaaS' meaning "Software As A Service". You choose the model you prefer, either way it is simple for you to access and requires no purchase of hardware or software by your organisation.

It is now possible to operate a geographically dispersed Help Desk Ticketing service with a ZERO start up cost, people can access the system from any location, operators can work from home, using their own PC or even a PDA. All that is required is a telephone and Web access.

A very useful feature is complete Smart Phone compatibility, this means that you can issue trouble tickets to support engineers via SMS text alerts, wherever they are. Using their mobile phone they can update the status of each issue the instant it is resolved.

Integrated SMS Alerts

Another benefit of SMS integration is that anyone who reports a problem can be notified of the Ticket details via text message, they can then check the status of their issue from anywhere, with a simple 'click', meaning less phone calls - and more 'Self Service'.

SMS text messages are the perfect facility for the 'Out of Hours Alerts' feature, which is activated when ever the 'Self Logged' call facility is used by a client, and they choose one of the critical priorities configured in the system, key support roles can see full incident details on their smart phone within seconds of a user log being created, allowing immediate action to be taken as required.

To facilitate ITIL problem management, Coolrain provides a complete Excel formatted group export to distribution lists detailing all incidences of problem details to the appropriate team, with calls to action and problem allocation to those roles who need to resolve issues.

To integrate with existing systems a full set of Data Import options are included, and you can provide automated End User Surveys directly off the back of closed calls via our integrated 'Micro Surveys' facility, so you can always be aware of those end user views. If required there is a direct API facility provided for integration into any central ERP systems where needed.

Because the application is totally cloud based, access can be provided to all the players in the process, whether they be third party vendors, organisation members, or customers, and they can use whatever device they choose to gain access.

Get started with 3 Agents

Deployments can begin with just a few users, which can be increased as demands require - you only pay per Agent user of the system at a nominal value of $20 each per month for the full system*, those people who need to have 'view only' access to the system - users who are not actively logging tickets , do not attract the per seat Agent charge. So you can provide unlimited access for your own remote employees, and critically, direct access for Third Party service users who are able to update their own ticket status.

With this low entry cost, you can support any number of internal end users, or remote customers and clients, they can use any type of desktop PC and ADSL service, and because of the low bandwidth requirements, access can also be provided out on the road, by using the latest Smart phones or PDA's over any reasonable 3G signal.

You can get started very simply, there are no long term contracts to cause concern, no equipment to purchase and the application screens are fully supported by a comprehensive "help-me" system - all backed by telephone support, so your team can get started and begin using the system with very little training or local hands on support, now you can get started with the least amount of effort and cost.

We take care of all the practical problems, we run the servers in a reliable, fully resilient environment, and we ensure that your data is fully backed up.

If you wish we can even arrange for the application Database Tables to be replicated back to your own servers, so you can keep an eye on your own data (even though we back it up 3 times using different services). So you really do not need to worry about anything - other than servicing your clients calls and resolving their issues. Of course if you can see the data, you can develop your own reporting ... very neat.

This Cloud Help Desk application is owned and operated by ourselves, its design is based upon many years of experience in the support world - even so, we expect that someone will always want new features, so our policy is to release a new version at least once a year, when the new features provided will be made available to all existing users.

(* Only Regular Users need a Licence - your own 'End Users' or your 'Third Party' and 'Customer Users' Access profiles do not need a licence cost, a Licence is only needed for those roles who need to log or manage tickets.)
