Detailed reports of support activity are helpful when you’re analyzing support activity in aggregate. But sometimes you need to analyze what happened in a particular support session. Bomgar’s session recording feature lets you record videos of each incident, forming a detailed audit trail and providing material for session analysis and training.
Once you enable session recording in Bomgar, you can see videos of support sessions annotated with details from the support session. These details include who is controlling the mouse and keyboard at any given time during the support session.
All recordings are stored for 90 days on the Bomgar appliance in a raw format and are converted to FLV (Flash) when viewed or downloaded. In addition, you can export or store support session videos in external databases.
Bomgar can record the following videos:
With Bomgar, you can create multiple support portals for the various customer groups or products you support. But not every customer has the same needs when it comes to session recordings.
That’s ok. You can set both default and portal-specific options for session recordings. You can also display a prompt to customers that lets them allow or refuse session recordings.
While session recording videos may serve to augment your support organization's audit evidence, there are some additional uses for these videos.
Many customer support issues happen repeatedly. So Bomgar administrators often provide a copy of the video recording to customers - along with a chat transcript - at the end of a support session.
Since Bomgar also integrates with CRM and ticketing solutions, you can add a link to the session recordings into their help desk ticket.
If the customer returns with the same issue, a support rep can open the previous help desk ticket and view the video, read the chat transcript and review the session notes made by the previous rep.
Knowing what happened in the previous remote support session can help the rep speed up resolution for your customer.
