There are few aspects of a support team that are as sticky and integrated into daily work as the ticket management tool. It is the keystone of support operations and is often deeply connected to all channels, business tools, and processes. Swapping to a new system, even if it will bring high value, is an onerous and daunting task.
Just ask Stacy Justino, Director of Customer Happiness at Wistia. When she went to market looking to bolster Wistia’s support offerings through integration, it became clear there would be a significant overhead. Taking on a tool ‘rip-n-replace’ would be more beneficial and cost-effective in the long term.
