DTLink Software and AbleStable®
has one simple aim in mind: to make answering many
emails a much faster and more productive process,
and in this it succeeds brilliantly. Answer tool is
one of those rare software products that you open
for the first time and can use immediately. That's
a testimony to the simplicity and power of this great,
highly focussed product. There are few hidden features
to get to grips with, although there are 'hot keys'
to make your life easier.
We first came across AnswerTool as a give-away on
a magazine CD ROM. Looking back, we didn't immediately
take up the opportunity of using this software. We
had wrongly presumed any application whose set-up
file took up less than a megabyte couldn't be that
powerful, and to be honest, we doubted the claims
that this was a major labour saving application. How
wrong we were.
AnswerTool not only significantly reduces the time
taken to reply to support requests, but also ensures
more accurate and targeted support responses. Support
staff choose their predetermined answers and combine
these with personalised replies that address issues
far faster, and often more accurately, than replying
to multiple email support requests individually. That's
not to say that AnswerTool makes support email responses
a fully automated process. Support staff will still
need to select the appropriate predefined responses
from a list, and should offer a customised response
to every request. The whole process however is far
more efficient, well managed affair.
The answers you cut from your AnswerTool files can
be either pasted and presented in HTML format, or
easily and automatically stripped of all HTML content
and pasted as plain text (plain text is a safer option
if you're sending to a broad user base as some companies
restrict incoming email in HTML format).
AbleStable® has no reservation in recommending
this software to anyone who replies to multiple emails
over the course of a day. AnswerTool receives a well
deserved five star AbleStable product award for its
ease of use and elegant functionality.
