Meeting the 24 x 7 Challenge
When your employees call for technical support, they expect a quick response, courteous service, and expert problem resolution. Delivering superior service and support poses economic and staffing challenges for virtually every company as it pertains to IT.
To consistently provide the best responsive customer service to your employees, you would have to staff a help desk 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, including weekends and holidays. This requires your technicians to be available around-the-clock and places a strain on the service delivery when they are sick or on vacation. Overtime pay, tired, less productive employees, and unwanted turnover can negatively affect your operation.
A Lower-Cost Alternative
With the IS&T Service Desk, your company would only pay a low fixed monthly fee at a fraction of what it costs to staff and operate an internal help desk. And your IT technicians can rest during nights, weekends and holidays while we do the work. IS&T achieves this through a partnership that has instituted extensive investments in process, training, technology and the economies of scale derived from spreading costs across hundreds of clients and nearly 20,000 end-users.
