The definition of a ticket in WICE CRM

We like to think of a ticket as a - rather today regarded quite old school - folder but with a more digital, modern and integrated background, where all related information about a sales or support or any other form of request is organized and archived - together with the documents, emails or offers that you or other employees in this ticket created, sent or received.


Processes organized in an ticket follow the principle of"Action" and "Reaction" and thus are no planned projects!

Example 1: a customer calls you with a a problem or question, and you respond.

Example 2: you acquire a new sales lead and try to win him as a new customer.

All steps in these different processes are included within the ticket, getting thereby organized and archived - together with the documents, emails or offers that you or other employees in this ticket create or receive.


You will use most likely a lot of time with the tickets and their features within the WICE CRM. Please keep in mind that a ticket is always associated with an address. Through the ticket-based work process, you create automatically a complete and consistent customer history.

Ticket = digital folder

You can imagine a ticket like a digital folder in which everything is contained and available that has to do with the specific ticket. You have also the main instruments available, which you will need for working with the ticket. In the ticket, among other things, you can:

  • Phone logs or other information like
  • himself/herself or others create reminder
  • Dates set
  • deposit any documents (files)
  • Write letters or faxes about documents templates
  • Email write or deposit
  • Enter sales opportunities
  • Write offers, order confirmations, delivery notes, invoices
  • standardized workflows invoke and ticket

... and more.
