Unleashing Efficiency: An introduction into Supportbench Workflows and Automation


Unleashing Efficiency: A Introduction into Supportbench Workflows and Automation

In the fast-paced world of customer support, efficiency is paramount. Supportbench, a dynamic platform designed to streamline support operations, empowers users with a robust set of tools, including powerful workflows that automate key processes. Let's explore how Supportbench workflows revolutionize support operations, enhancing efficiency and ensuring a seamless customer experience.

Understanding Supportbench Workflows

1. What Are Workflows?

Workflows in Supportbench are automated sequences of actions that guide and manage support processes. They serve as digital assistants, ensuring tasks are executed systematically, reducing manual intervention and minimizing the risk of errors.

2. Creating Workflows:

Access the intuitive Workflow Editor within Supportbench to craft personalized workflows by going to Configuration > Workflows > New workflow. Whether it's ticket management, escalations, or priority handling, the platform provides a canvas where you can design workflows tailored to your unique support requirements.


3. Automation Triggers:

Workflows kick into action based on predefined triggers. These triggers can range from specific events, such as ticket creation or customer inquiries, to time-based conditions. By automating responses to these triggers, Supportbench ensures a proactive approach to support management. Our triggers are: “When is this workflow run?”, “Requirements: When all rules are true”, and “Conditionals: When at least one rule matches for the workfow to r” 

The Power of Supportbench Automation

1. Effortless Ticket Management:

Workflows excel in automating ticket-related tasks. From ticket creation to assignment and resolution, Supportbench workflows can handle the entire lifecycle. This not only accelerates response times but also ensures that tickets are routed to the right agents with precision.

2. Escalations and Priority Handling:

Identify and prioritize critical issues with automation. Supportbench workflows can be configured to escalate tickets based on predefined criteria, ensuring urgent matters receive immediate attention. This proactive approach helps maintain service level agreements and enhances customer satisfaction.


Here is an example Escalation workflow: 


This workflow will automatically assign any escalated cases to the “Escalations” queue. Similarly we could have it send to a specific agent that handles notifications for a specific team:




If we want to move past Escalation workflows and create a workflow that assigns a speicfic priority for crucial cases based on a trigger:





The above workflow will assign any cases that you receive with an “Server” issue as High priority. 


3. Data-Driven Decision Making:

Leverage automation to collect and analyze data. Workflows can be designed to gather customer feedback. This data-driven approach empowers support teams with valuable insights, facilitating continuous improvement.

Best Practices for Implementing Supportbench Workflows

  1. Map Your Processes: Before diving into workflow creation, map out your support processes. Identify key touchpoints, triggers, and desired outcomes. This foundation will guide you in crafting effective workflows.

  2. Start Small, Iterate Often: Begin with simple workflows and gradually expand their complexity. Regularly review and refine your workflows to ensure they align with evolving support requirements.

  3. Collaborate Across Teams: Workflows often involve multiple teams. Collaborate with different departments to ensure your automated processes enhance overall organizational efficiency.

  4. Continuous Optimization: Embrace a culture of continuous optimization. Regularly review analytics and user feedback to identify areas where workflows can be refined for maximum impact.

In conclusion, Supportbench workflows are the driving force behind a more efficient and responsive customer support ecosystem. By harnessing the power of automation, support teams can focus on delivering exceptional service, knowing that routine tasks are handled seamlessly by Supportbench workflows.
