Round Robin Ticket Distribution in Zendesk: More Efficiency and Fairness

Round Robin Zendesk

We know that balancing the workload among customer support agents can be challenging. Unequal distribution of tickets among customer support teams can lead to stress, burnout, and decreased productivity.

To avoid these issues, we propose round-robin distribution. Originating from the world of sports scheduling, where each team competes against every other team in a tournament, the round-robin ensures an equitable distribution of tasks. In customer support, this translates to every agent getting a fair share of tickets to handle.

At Knots, we’ve been dedicated to developing an application that makes this possible, and here it is:

In customer support, the round-robin method makes work more fair and efficient. Implementing a round-robin system within customer support operations can be beneficial for three main reasons:

  • Balanced workloads among agents. 

This prevents overload and burnout and promotes fairness while also maintaining consistent service quality.

  • Quicker response times. 

Automatic ticket distribution among available agents can help avoid bottlenecks and enhance customer satisfaction and loyalty. This agility in ticket assignment leads to smoother customer experiences and improved retention rates.

  • Positive work environment.

A fair workload distribution and efficient ticket assignment contribute to higher agent satisfaction, lower turnover rates, and increased employee engagement.
