Issue Trak

RATEX has implemented the IssueTrak Software to manage clients’ requests, issues, and custom projects. 

IssueTrak enables us to organize client-reported issues and resolve them quickly and efficiently.  Needing only web access, clients are able to use IssueTrak to submit requests or issues to RATEX.  Using email notifications, and the ability to add and receive notes on each issue, RATEX staff and clients are able to communicate progress, test resolutions, and close issues. Required-by dates, assigned tasks, and a next action field allow the issue to flow through the appropriate RATEX departments seamlessly and without delay. 

The flexibility of IssueTrak also allows us to use the software to schedule upgrades via a series of template issues, conduct training, and provide a valuable project management tool that facilitates the tasks needed for each project phase.  IssueTrak’s software has enabled RATEX to increase productivity, respond quickly to client requests, manage resources, and simplify the resolution process.
