The Service Desk provides a 24/7 capability whereby businesses and end users can: 1. Outsource network monitoring 2. Log an Incident 3. Log a Service Request 4. Request or monitor Ticket updates. There are three primary Service Desk functions that most clients have a requirement for: 1. Fix on First – whereby the end-user makes a call to a Level 1 Service Desk analyst and can have an interactive session to resolve an issue they may be having with Internet access, ADSL service, desktop/Laptop, Printer, Email (Exchange), Office 365, Windows, a specific application, password error/changes, etc. 2. Infrastructure Incident Management – whether an alert is received from an NMS tool or a call from a Clients internal IT department, the Service Desk will assign Level1/2 support to either: a. Remotely connect to the impacted device (server, router, switch, firewall, PBX, etc) to analyse and attempt service restoration; or b. Dispatch Field Services to assess the fault, replace failed hardware, provide remote access for an engineer, action an RMA process, etc. 3. Site/End-User Field Support – an incident with a device has been determined and the course of action is to dispatch a Field Engineer to investigate the issue, replace the device or device component, re-image a desktop/Laptop, check cabling/patching faults, replace a telephone handset, etc. This function will also include service requests to perform physical Moves, Adds and Changes (MACs) in the client environment. The Service Desk product can be commercially modelled to suite client requirements. This is usually based on call volume, call priority and hours of coverage. Call Volume – we will analyse call volume for the client over the previous 6-12 months to understand the calls logged per day, week, month and plot timelines to understand peaks and troughs. Call Priority – the service can manage call priorities that have been pre agreed with the Client. Typical call priority; P1 – 24x7x4 P2 – 24x7x8 P3 – 8x5xNBD P4 – negotiable appointment time. Hours of Coverage – the Client may select the hours they want to take advantage of the Service Desk product. It could be; Business Hours, 08:30am – 05:30pm Monday to Friday After Hours, 05:30pm – 08:30am Monday to Friday 24 x 7 x 365 Or any combination of the above.
