Service level agreements (SLAs) describe the level of service you expect from an organization. This includes establishing metrics to measure service and corrective actions or penalties if the agreed service level is not met.
SLAs play a key role in defining your end user’s experience and building a brand reputation.
Introducing SLAs for email ticketing
We are thrilled to announce the launch of SLAs for Inbox’s Email Ticketing module, which will allow customer support teams to track, measure, and improve upon their SLAs with ease. As part of the Email Ticketing module within Inbox, customer support teams will now be able to track the following metrics:
1. First response time
This metric will reflect the time spent by an agent to provide an initial response to a customer email or support ticket created from the email.
2. Every response time
This metric will reflect the time spent by an agent in responding to the customer’s last replied email message.
3. Resolution Time
This metric will reflect the time spent by agent(s) to resolve a customer email or support ticket created from the email once it’s been opened.
Setting SLAs as per organization policies
You will be able to create multiple SLA policies with the above metrics to track different tickets based on their expected SLAs.
Policies can be configured to automatically apply to a ticket only when certain conditions are met, e.g. only apply the Enterprise SLAs to the tickets landing in the payments group when they have the premium tag. Once the condition is satisfied, the SLA targets are assigned to a ticket based on their priority.
Keeping those SLAs in check!
We have built UI nudges and automation around SLA targets to minimize SLA breaches and update your agents on the criticality of the ticket.
Reminders will allow users to schedule automated email whenever the SLA is approaching its due time, alerting teams to take quick action.
Ticket level information
Each ticket will display the attached policies and the target time to agents at all times, letting them know the status of each ticket.
Automated escalation mails can be configured to be sent out to all the relevant stakeholders in case any of the SLAs are breached.
