Acorn Aid can be installed in a matter of minutes and can be tailored to your business needs.

Agents are help desk members who can manage tickets. Agents can be assigned to groups to ensure the most effective ticket management.


Customisable priorities can be made to allow agents and customers to select the importance of an ticket.


Private Notes

Private notes can be added to a tickets diary and passed between agents without the customers seeing the note.


Knowledge Base

A knowledge base can be enabled and articles can be added to answer frequently asked questions and avoid repeat tickets.

Canned Replies

Common replies can be saved as canned replies to save time.



Pass tickets between groups and agents to ensure tickets are assigned to the correct groups.
