Entitlements - Entitlements simply determine what type of service a customer is supposed to receive. To track who is entitled to expedited service based on an SLA.
Milestone - Milestones are required steps in a support process. They're metrics that respresent service levels to provide to customers. Examples of milestones are: First response and resolution times
Escalation rules - Escalation Rules allow you to send emails or change case ownership based on criteria and time.
