Reduce support ticket costs and time to resolution

You can save time and money with Stack Overflow for Teams

There are two fundamental success metrics for your support organization — customer satisfaction and cost per ticket. While Customer satisfaction is subjective, it depends on if the issue is resolved and how quickly. Cost per ticket is a metric that organizations monitor very closely and strive to lower.

According to BMC, the average support ticket in North America costs an organization $15.56, and ticket handle time plays a big factor here. Your support team has a wealth of knowledge, but when they don’t know the answer or steps needed to resolve an issue, they need access to a reliable, up-to-date, and centralized source of information.

Stack Overflow for Teams empowers your support team to find information and answers in moments. Helpful resources such as questions, answers and long-form content reduce the amount of time your support team spends on common questions. While unique cases can be documented and shared with relevant teams to ensure information is retained.
