Service Requests Defined
A service request is a customer request for information about or assistance with products or services bought from a company. Service request records track customer requests and accompanying responses and are the central data object for managing potentially complex service issues to rapid, consistent, and correct resolution.
Service requests permit end users to create, assign, and manage customer service issues. They provide quick access to the customer's assets, profile, open issues, related product issues, and service agreement information. Each service request can include short and extended descriptions of the problem, problem categories, levels of severity and priority, and status tracking with the opening and closing date and time. Each service request can also include many important details such as related activities, related attachments, and relevant solutions.
