How to Install PerlDesk through Cpanel

PerlDesk is a live help software designed to help companies deliver a great customer service.

PerlDesk allows users to customize the customer facing portal through a variety of templates. Templates are used to help you quickly and easily create help articles, and FAQs. The SmartAnswer Tool will attempt to offer the customer possible solution through your help files before guiding him to submit a ticket. The submission form can be a web based form or email submission form. Administrators can limit the users to view and submit ticket only.  PerlDesk has a user friendly navigation that allows customers to find the answers they want easily. Customers can also login to their accounts to view the status of their tickets to respond to the requests. Customers can also choose to receive a notification through email once their ticket has been responded to ensure good customer service. The live chat is only available in the Enterprise License.
