Maintaining A Cost-Effective, Well-Run IT Service Desk is a Challenge for Many Organizations

IT service desks are supposed to provide well-informed, single points of contact for users to resolve issues and submit service requests. But IT departments often struggle to deliver them.

  • Growing companies discover their current staffing model no longer scales and cannot support company expansion.
  • Expanding companies reach the point where they need 24/7 coverage, but cannot afford the huge increase in staff needed.
  • Organizations under financial pressure determine their service desk costs are too high and need to be reduced.
  • Benchmarks show service levels are inadequate, but the company does not have the resources or expertise to fix them.
  • An incident such as a pandemic, natural disaster, or security breach requires a significant increase in capacity.
  • The company has chosen to outsource, but their current supplier is not providing sufficient service.
  • An event such as an acquisition forces a change in service desk delivery strategy.

AI Seems Like a Natural for Service Desks, but Many Projects Have Been Disappointing

  • Some organizations made huge investments in AI, but their partner did not understand service desk processes and built systems users did not like.
  • Others looked at the price, made minimal investments to save cost, and only obtained minimal value.
  • Organizations are incorporating AI into digital transformation initiatives, but many of those projects have been disappointing.
  • Few feel their AI investment has been well-spent.

Being a Managed Service Provider, We Have Mastered Making AI Work for Service Desks

  • As a MSP, we have a deep understanding of service desk operational processes and outcomes, not just technology.
  • When we use AI tools, we add automation to your existing processes instead of inventing new ones.
  • Since we know how both service desk staff and end-users work, we can better implement the technology to make machine interaction seamless for all users.
  • When extreme events create an immediate need to scale up capacity, automated service desks can ramp up much more quickly than manual service desks.
