Your company has chosen Freshdesk as the best solution to handle customer support and technical assistances. The one who is going to be handling the various dimensions of the portal is called an "Agent." An agent's functionality depends on the expertise, the level of support the agent is capable of delivering and the degree of the role assigned. Accordingly, an agent can answer tickets, be responsible for the configurations on the portal, pull out reports and monitor the account invoices as well. Basically, an agent who starts on the portal turns out be a hero at the end of the day :)
