Deciding which ticket to tackle next can be a time-consuming process, often leaving ticket dispatchers mired in analysis.

A manual ticket dispatching system can lead to many unpleasant outcomes: tickets getting overlooked, cherry-picked, and stuck after stumbling into a black hole of lost tickets (yikes!).

MSPbots Next Ticket app simplifies dispatching by determining the ‘next ticket’ for you, streamlining the decision-making process. It’s designed to enhance efficiency and accuracy in ticket assignment.

Next Ticket is an automated triage and dispatch system that assigns tickets according to your priority rules. Since it assigns tickets in a predetermined and calculated process, there’s no room for triage or dispatch mistakes, cherry or random picking, or tickets being left unaddressed.  Saving valuable time for MSPs in addressing their clients’ needs and resolving them in a way that boosts satisfaction.

Why MSPbots Next Ticket is the Next Tool for Your Business

Save time and energy! Why add to the list of mistakes that occur on a daily basis? Articles that discuss traditional ticket dispatchers being responsible for organizing, prioritizing, and monitoring tickets need to consider how minor factors delay the process. They can be slow, inaccurate, and require re-training. The most impactful reason being that they’re not available 24/7 which means they are consistently chasing a backlog rather than staying ahead of the influx.

Your IT support could have already been working towards a solution for the ticket rather than it sitting around, waiting to be assigned. Sooner or later, you (or worse, your clients!) will realize they need a more reliable provider.

Slow or unchecked tickets can lead to client churn.

Real-Life Testimonial

Technicians previously cherry-picked tasks or delayed ticket resolutions. Excellent Networks CEO Mark Luna introduced a bot to notify when a ticket wasn’t resolved in 30 minutes, ensuring prioritized and timely handling. This improved efficiency and workload distribution.

Mark confirmed, “I know that it’s making us more efficient because tickets aren’t falling through the cracks anymore.”

Get the Right Ticket to the Right Technician, Every Time!

Next Ticket saves up to 80% of your dispatcher’s time. Instead of executing every step of ticket dispatching, you just need to properly set up your priority rules, ensuring that the process works well on the daily. This alone increases workflow efficiency. The fewer delays and/or errors in assigning tickets, the faster and better your service becomes.  

The best part? It’s incredibly easy to set up!  

On the MSPbots app, navigate to the apps menu and click on Next Ticket to set up filters and priority rules.

Next Ticket Bots

Next Ticket introduces innovative bots for ConnectWise Manage and Autotask users, designed to optimize workflows and improve service outcomes:

  • Rejected Alert Bot: Provides instant alerts for ticket rejections, detailing reasons to enable quick adjustments and learning opportunities.
  • Rejected Ticket Summary Alert Bot: Offers managers weekly insights into ticket rejections, supporting data-driven decisions for process and training enhancements.

NextTicket Manager Best Practices

To make the most of the app, here are some best practices that will help run NextTicket Manager smoothly:

  • Classify roles for technicians – There are many ways to do this. One way is by identifying whether they are a reactive, proactive, or project type of IT support.
  • Limit how many tickets a technician should handle – This prevents your employees from being overworked and ensures that the support they provide is above-standard quality.
  • Have a limit for how many companies a technician can cater tickets for – Your technicians may not retain as much information if they handle too many companies at once.
Give NextTicket Manager a try!

Automating the process of ticket prioritization and employing proactive alerts simplifies the workflow for dispatchers but also enhances service delivery.
