Systems & Processes for Work Ticket Distributor

The path towards better systems and processes in your Work Ticket Distributor role starts with mapping out your most important business processes. Being able to see your business processes laid out visually helps you to collaborate with your team on how to improve and grow. By repeating this collaboration process, you’ll develop a culture of continuous improvement that leads to a growing business and streamlined systems and processes that increase customer & staff experience.

To help you start mapping out your processes, we’ve developed a sample flow for a Work Ticket Distributor Workflow Map that you can use with your team to start clarifying your processes and then run Business Experiments so you can build a better business.

Workflow Map For A Work Ticket Distributor

1. Receiving work ticket requests: The first stage involves receiving work ticket requests from clients or customers, either through email, phone calls, or an online platform.

2. Ticket assessment and categorization: Once the work ticket is received, the distributor assesses the nature of the request and categorizes it based on its urgency, complexity, or specific department responsible for handling it.

3. Assigning work tickets: After categorization, the distributor assigns the work ticket to the appropriate department or individual responsible for addressing the request.

4. Communication with clients/customers: Throughout the process, the distributor maintains regular communication with clients or customers, providing updates on the progress of their work ticket and addressing any queries or concerns they may have.

5. Work ticket prioritization: In this stage, the distributor prioritizes work tickets based on their urgency, ensuring that critical requests are addressed promptly and efficiently.

6. Work ticket tracking: The distributor tracks the progress of each work ticket, ensuring that it is being handled within the specified timeframe and that any potential bottlenecks or delays are identified and addressed.

7. Coordination and collaboration: If a work ticket requires input or collaboration from multiple departments or individuals, the distributor facilitates coordination and ensures that all parties are working together effectively to resolve the request.

8. Quality control and review: Before closing a work ticket, the distributor conducts a quality control check to ensure that the service or product delivered meets the client’s or customer’s expectations and requirements.

9. Client/customer feedback: After the completion of a work ticket, the distributor seeks feedback from the client or customer to assess their satisfaction level and identify areas for improvement.

10. Continuous improvement: Based on the feedback received and the distributor’s own observations, this stage involves analyzing the workflow maps and identifying opportunities for continuous improvement in the service/product delivery process
