Top 10 Help Desk Mistakes
Top 10 Help Desk Mistakes
There are 10 common blunders made by help desk managers on a daily basis. These mistakes include:
A web based help desk solution such as everything HelpDesk® (eHD™) by GroupLink® is ideal for preventing and solving all of these common issues.
The most important part of eHD is the easy end user experience. End users can use the online Knowledgebase to find solutions to their issues without taking time away from technicians. They can also submit problems and requests through the online portal by creating tickets.
After a ticket has been created, technicians can easily view it from any web enabled device including smart phones. This will allow them to make updates even when away from their computer. This in turn will let the end user see the progress of their request, create a single point of contact and keep the lines of communication open between technicians and end users.
To view multiple tickets at once and check on progress, technicians and managers can create ticket filters to run customizable reports. These reports can show what and how many incidents occur, ticket status updates, asset information, and technician workload. These are extremely useful, especially in showing management exactly how much work is being done by their employees.
In addition to incident requests, eHD can be used to automate processes using Ticket Templates that can be launched on a set schedule. This will ensure the Technicians can stay on top of routine tasks in addition to daily help desk requests.
eHD can be integrated in any environment, even mixed environments. Integration also provides SMTP server collaboration with mail servers such as Exchange, GroupWise®, and Gmail™, making it the ideal service desk solution.
The Asset Tracker piece of eHD is a simple tool that will help you manage your hardware and software inventory and the clients they are assigned to. Assets can be imported directly into the help desk, tied to help desk tickets, and reported on with the reporting feature. This will allow your organization to calculate warranty and lease end dates, manage down time of assets, and negotiate with vendors based on how frequently assets are having trouble.
