Managed IT Service Desk
The Service Desk Challenge
Delivering Service Desk support, providing incident management and meeting user demands effectively can be costly and resource intensive for many organisations. The challenges multiply when operations span multiple countries, time-zones and language requirements. With employees travelling globally and increasingly working remotely or from alternating office locations, organisations are finding they need to change the way in which support services are provided to their users.

Getronics’ Service Desks achieve high first time fix rates and end-user satisfaction scores through an extensive investment in processes, knowledgebase and agent training.
Getronics has enhanced our service by introducing ServiceNow, a best in class, innovative end user-friendly management tool for our integrated ICT Services worldwide. ServiceNow, based on ITIL® methodology and using Web 2.0 technology, is a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution and is available from the Getronics Cloud via any device with internet connectivity.
Through ServiceNow, Service Desk users receive access to a self-service portal which allows them to perform self-resolution, log an incident and request fulfilment. Users can track their own incidents through to resolution. The ServiceNow dashboard will give customer management team’s access to real time performance reports and enable them to create bespoke reports.
