TeamHeadquarters Features and Strengths

Help Desk

TeamHeadquarters lets users create unlimited support queues that they can assign to different agents. The help desk software automatically creates tickets from email using configurable rules and templates, then assigns them to individuals for resolution. The My Queues Dashboard displays real-time feedback on ticket activity, as well as identifying emerging problems, and product support issues. It can monitor real-time activity across multiple help desks in the company.

Users can divert service and support requests away from Level 1 agents and send them directly to specialized teams using the customer portal. The customer self-service portal allows customers to create and manage their support tickets, attach documents, and provide updates. Portals can support different types of requests through custom forms that trigger unique ticket automation. A built-in calendar allows teams to plan when they will work on their help desk tickets. Linked timesheets and calendars make it easy for agents to add time and effort notes.

Project Management

TeamHeadquarters includes a Gantt chart tool for creating project plans. Users can add milestones, create tasks, assign resources, create schedules, and set project dependencies. The project dashboard shows real-time information as it occurs in the project, such as updates on tasks, tickets, time entries, comments, and milestones. Clicking on the tasks or tickets will show details.

TeamHeadquarters’s integrated project management software includes a task assignment and resource management capability to help users meet project deadlines. They can review the previous 90 days of work on all project and support work for each member of the team. Other features include task calendar scheduling, auto status update reports, email notifications, project financial management, and project issue management.

Asset Management, Resource Management, Team Management, and More

TeamHeadquarters provides asset management tools that are essential elements for managing issues and problems. The software connects single or multiple assets to incidents, captures vital asset data, and links assets to help desk tickets or incidents.

The software also has resource management to help users manage actual resource availability. It includes a dashboard to compare baseline vs actual resource utilization. Statistics give users details on maximum resource utilization and availability.
