Vector’s Issue Tracker is the powerful, configurable, Web-based framework for managing any class of business issue through to resolution. Issue Tracker is typically used for ensuring compliance with organization procedures, for tracking quality issues, and for handling customer and external agency interactions. Rules-based automation and advanced email server integration – typically with Exchange - process the emails with which issues are tracked. Issue Tracker records a detailed history of all the steps of each issue’s life, suitable for trend analysis and audit.

Boardroom Bullet-points
These discussion points may help position Issue Tracker to your boardroom colleagues.
  • Increasing regulation and a new sense of corporate responsibility is making organizations look hard at how they deal with any issues that affect any of their stakeholders, whether employees, customers, shareholders or members of the public.
  • Potentially high profile examples include the resolution of customer complaints, resolution of staff grievances, the management of security-related events such as laptop or data loss, and investigation of reports of inappropriate conduct at any level of the organization.
  • More day-to-day areas in which an issue management framework is equally important include change management – in any aspect of the business, bug or fault reporting and employee suggestion handling.
  • Increasingly, organizations are looking to standardize on a single issue tracking technology. This must use a framework that is capable of meeting many different needs through applying templates of workflow, team structure, escalation rules, and data fields relevant to the issues being processed.
  • Customers using Vector’s IT Support HelpDesk have frequently expanded the use of the core Issue Tracker technology by implementing new project templates for other business issue management needs. Access to each ‘project’ is very simply controlled through the Issue Tracker logon.
