Helpmate module is a professional solution for issues and support request management for any ecommerce business based on Magento ecommerce platform. Our help desk module for Magento consists of 2 integrated modules: Helpdesk and Knowledge Base. Your support team most likely creates the new knowledge articles and solve clients problems on a daily basis. Stop wasting this valuable resource. We recommend to start using a built-in knowledge system. Our Helpmate module will help your customers to reuse this data in order to help themselves without bothering your store support team.

Previously. you accepted tickets via email, contact form or customer account page 24 hours per day and 7 day per week. With Helpdesk module you can easily link the tickets with the corresponding orders in order to make support process more efficient. Try it out to help your dedicated support team to provide prompt support to store users. In order to save time of your support stuff, you can create multiple support departments and distribute various types of requests between them.  

Helpmate will help you to:

  • Simplify the workflow both for admin and users.
  • Build informative knowledge base for most common questions.
  • Help your clients solve their issues.

Main features

Intuitive ticket interface

Our extension is provided with clear ticket interface. Easy and quick respond to a ticket is guaranteed. Now your customers are allowed to specify the priority of issue, attach multiple files to the ticket and assign it to the appropiate department. The customers can create tickets from their account pages, the order page, contact or custom Helpmate form.

Tickets interface allows you to create tickets directly from the admin interface; answer the tickets via email; track and check the issues resolution process via tickets history interface. The Helpmate module takes care of inactive ticket and allows your support team focus on really important issues. 

Built-in knowledge base management tool

Helpmate module includes Knowledge Base that provides you with a categorised directory for frequently asked questions and answers. This approach will make every day support much easier. In our experience, it can dramatically reduce a number of support request. The Knowledge base includes the Article and Category interfaces. 

Email Gateways interface

The Helpmate module allows you to set two way communication channel between your customer and support staff. The module reads the user's messages from an email gateway. Then it will assign them to the appropriate tickets or create new one. Moreover, you are allowed to create new email gateways and assign them to appropriate departments or stores.
