A complete guide to the best ticketing software

Provide the best customer care and organize your inquiries with ticketing

How to choose the best ticketing software


Become familiar with ticketing solutions and learn about the software commitments. These include base pricing, software or hardware requirements, built-in features, integrations, supported customer communication channels, and even customer support for help desk users. Once you get all the vital information, you can make an informed decision about what software is best for your situation.


The most common issues regarding choosing the best ticketing software for your business include pricing options. Ticketing software prices depend on a few factors, such as basic features, integrations, reliability, and more. Make sure to consider all of these options and compare pricing tiers to ensure you will get the software you need without overpaying.


Any help desk software should provide stellar support for its users. Therefore, user-friendly self-service options and direct contact options are a necessity. LiveAgent customers can contact our 24/7 support line via email, live chat, or phone at any time. You can also browse through our external knowledge customer base for self-service options.

Provided contact options

Provide stellar customer service with a selection of tools that help you reach every important customer channel. For example, give your customers the options to contact you via email, live chat, calls, or even social media. With the addition of a customer portal and external knowledge base, you can ensure your customers will find their preferred option.

Ability to scale up/down

Are you feeling overwhelmed with incoming requests? Every good ticketing software can help you scale up whenever necessary and help you create room for more customer support agents. It works the other way around too. Feel free to downgrade whenever you feel like you’re overpaying for features you don’t use.

Software limitations

Your customer support team should have everything necessary to provide support. Software limitations don’t have to be a necessarily bad thing, especially for help desks that don’t require every tool and feature software can offer. Consider everything you need and pick the best options for a fair price.

Collaboration options

Customer service reps should work as a unit. Take advantage of help desk collaboration tools, share customer profiles, and easily cooperate on customer issues. Anyone can pitch in. LiveAgent can help you with notes, tags, contact information, and splitting customer tickets when necessary.

What is the best ticketing software?

LiveAgent offers a state-of-the-art system that can handle every vital customer channel. Every customer channel and powerful tool is backed up by advanced features that help you quickly and reliably solve incoming tickets. Connect other apps with LiveAgent thanks to our integrations and create the ultimate customer service hub for your agents. We care about customer loyalty, and that’s why you can discuss anything with our customer support team 24/7. Get access to our solution for a fair price and get the best value for your money.

Mistakes to avoid when buying a ticketing software 

No trained staff

Unless you want to focus only on canned responses, your staff should be trained in both basics and advanced sides of ticketing and customer support. That’s why ticketing software should be easy for everyone to learn, even in complex event scenarios, and help your agents learn how to use a fully-featured help desk software. LiveAgent system offers a handy start-up guide that will teach anybody how to set up everything and get started. Our website also includes an Academy. It’s full of articles that cover the entire spectrum of help desk systems such as ticketing, live chat, call center, and more. Furthermore, it can help your agents learn how to become full-fledged help desk experts and reliable customer service agents.

More features don’t equal a better product

Customer interaction doesn’t always require every tool, channel, or advanced feature at your disposal. Different businesses require different solutions with regard to ticketing challenges. Overpaying for features you won’t ever use can decrease agent productivity and lead to complications with your customer service platform. Make sure to take full advantage of free trials to find out what works for you and what doesn’t.

Not taking full advantage of a trial

Trials are important because they allow us to try out the system and its interface with features. Don’t skip on a free trial because of fancy talk just because you read the information on a website. Free trials let you try out basic features and show you how to handle complex events and situations in everyday customer support.

Not thinking ahead of expansion

The help desk interface with features you currently pay for may be enough but have you considered what will happen when you upgrade? Most ticketing systems offer various paid plans that come with or without some features. Make sure to pick a solution with a customizable user interface that will allow you to upgrade and cater to your needs when necessary.

Cost of ticketing software

The pricing for ticketing help desk software can range from free to very expensive. This depends on many factors. You always need to consider a few things before you decide to pick a system. The costs can vary because of features and their quality, the number of custom integrations, the popularity of the selected brand, usability in various scenarios, scalability, and many other factors. There are a few pricing models that need to be considered to make sure a help desk system is worth it and suits your business model.

Pricing models of ticketing software

Per ticket
Per ticket pricing models let you pay for what you need. This pricing model is ideal for help desks with low numbers of customer tickets. The biggest downside might be a lack of motivation for agents to handle support, as every handled ticket equals a larger sum paid to the service provider.
Per license
License pricing models can include licenses for one or more users. Everyone who has it can use the software indefinitely as long as the price has been paid. The price for a license can be a lump sum or on a subscription basis.
Per device
Similar to the license pricing model, you can pay a lump sum or a subscription fee that lets you use ticketing software on multiple devices. The final sum stacks for each device used in a help desk.
Per agent
The agent-based model is the most common and the most preferred as it gives you fair conditions. Your price depends on the number of software users. They can use the software with every paid feature with no limits set by ticketing or runtime.

What to ask on demo call about ticketing software

Customer queries

There are a few key things hundreds of organizations ask on demo calls. First of all, you need to find out what you’re going to pay for. Ask about supported customer communication hub or channel options, as well as features included in plans or supported integrations with other software. Then comes pricing. The total cost of ownership is one of the key priorities.

Implementation of ticketing software

The implementation of ticketing software is generally an easy process that can differ in a few regards. The main difference is between web-based or application-based software. In general, you skip the installation process with web-based solutions and start using them right away. All you need is to provide your email address and register for a free trial. Once you confirm your email, you can log in and get familiar with the help desk platform. As an example, LiveAgent offers a handy getting started guide right from the start. It leads every new user through a few simple steps that help them get set up their new solution.


Ticketing software has become one of the most essential tools for handling customer support. Managing customer incoming request via ticketing can help you provide faster, more reliable advice, as well as allow agents to handle a larger number of customer requests. Ticketing systems can provide added value to any help desk. This depends on customer communication channels, features, and integrations you decide to rely on, as well as trained customer support agents. Respond to service requests with ease, and get the right ticketing software for your help desk.
