Overview of Hosted Help Desk Software
Hosted help desk software eliminates an organizations need to buy and manage servers internally as well as hire staff to manage and update the software.
Until recently, help desk software had to be installed and maintained locally onto a companys servers. Software updates and patches had to be downloaded and applied to fix bugs or update the product.
With a web-based help desk software program, theres nothing to install or manage locally and updates are automatic and applied to the businesss help desk as soon as they are available.
How Businesses Use Hosted Help Desk Software
Hosted help desk software like Zendesk allows businesses to easily provide reliable customer support. Zendesk is web-based, so there is no software to download or updates to install, and support agents (also called operators) can access ticket data and solve tickets from anywhere at anytime.
Businesses also use help desk software to track and manage support metrics (also called analytics). Popular metrics include:

- Agent productivity
- Resolution time
- % of tickets solved within 4 hours
