Case tracking and reporting made easy 

Fixing an issue every Salesforce service team faces

In customer support and service, efficiency and clarity in case management are crucial. Salesforce is no exception to this rule. However, service teams across various industries face a common, yet significant challenge: accurately tracking and reporting the status duration of customer cases. This problem is particularly pronounced when cases undergo multiple status changes, such as being opened, closed, reopened, and closed again. Such complexities have long hindered the ability of service teams to precisely measure and report on the time spent resolving each case.

The Heart of the Matter

At the core of this issue lies the nature of case management within the Salesforce platform (SFDC). Many SFDC customers utilize the case object for external purposes, primarily to maintain and support their customer base. While tracking the current status of a case is straightforward, gauging the duration of each status accurately—especially amidst frequent status changes—remains a challenge.

Service teams have diverse Key Performance Indicators (KPIs), yet they share a common stumbling block: effectively reporting on the actual time dedicated to each case. This challenge is compounded by various factors, such as cases being placed on hold or reopened, which render standard reporting measures for total resolution time inaccurate. Furthermore, the establishment of Service Level Agreements (SLAs) based on response and total resolution time necessitates precise and reliable reporting.

Introducing a Game-Changing Solution

We have addressed this issue and introduced a system where each change in a case's status generates a time log. This feature offers several key advantages:

  • Customizable to Fit Any Team's Needs: The system is fully configurable, allowing each Salesforce organization to track time according to their specific KPIs.
  • Accurate SLA Reporting: With precise time logging, SLAs can be reported on accurately, ensuring that both service teams and their customers have a clear understanding of performance metrics.

  • Enhanced Decision Making: Improved reporting capabilities lead to better-informed decisions, enhancing the overall effectiveness of the service team.

  • Efficiency and Value: By accurately tracking time spent on each case, the total time to resolution is not only shortened but also reflects the true value provided by the service team.

  • Scalability and Standardized Architecture: The solution is designed to scale seamlessly with any organization's needs, utilizing standard Salesforce architecture to ensure compatibility and ease of integration.

Who Can Gain from This?

This solution is designed with a broad audience in mind, including:

  • Existing Salesforce Users: Any organization currently using Salesforce for case management, seeking to enhance their reporting and tracking capabilities.

  • Potential Salesforce Customers: Organizations considering Salesforce for case management will find this solution an added incentive, given its ability to provide detailed insights into case resolution performance.

  • Organizations with Strict SLAs: This solution is particularly beneficial for service teams that operate under stringent SLAs based on response times or total resolution time, excluding time spent waiting on the customer.

Designed for customers and users, this solution will transform Salesforce case management, making it more insightful and efficient. It simplifies case tracking and improves service team performance.
