How Does an Email Support Ticketing System Work?

Keeping is a flexible, user-friendly, and powerful email support ticketing software that works directly inside your Gmail inbox. 

Keeping has been designed for teams that need both ticket management and shared inbox. It lets you tackle customer requests with ease.

The Keeping email support ticketing tool keeps your business emails organized. Every customer support request is turned into a trackable support ticket that can be assigned to any member of your support team.

Our email ticketing system lets you create custom responses, use workflows, and solve customer issues from inside Gmail. It also lets you communicate confidentially within your team. Forward tickets with all their information to collaborate with team members to resolve issues more quickly.

How Do I Convert an Email into a Ticket?

By routing your support mailbox to Keeping, your customer emails get automatically turned into a new ticket. The tickets are kept neatly out of your main email inbox.  You can also convert any email in your personal inbox into a ticket with a single click.

You don't need a complicated system like Zendesk to manage your customer support.  Zendesk is built for big enterprise-sized companies who require features like an SLA, API, or multichannel support across social media.  Odds are, you can do everything you need when you use Gmail as a service desk.
