Desktop Support deals with users’ issues, such as log on problems, whether this be in the office, warehouse, or working remotely. Desktop support provides IT assistance to individuals rather than processes. Dealing with end users and office equipment, this service would include break-fix and technical guidance and support to any software related issues on a users’ computer (rather than a working station, back-office PC or point of sale device).
Maintaining a close eye on finances is always important and desktop support can help significantly with this. Often the IT issues that head office teams face are relatively simple and by outsourcing these problems to a third party means that your internal IT teams are freed up to focus on projects or strategy, rather than time-consuming, smaller matters.
Our desktop support team work as an extension of your internal IT department, meaning that they can continue with their work, safe in the knowledge that the day-to-day tech problems are being handled swiftly and efficiently.
When things go wrong in IT, they simply can’t wait. Getting problems rectified immediately can be the difference between a business continuing uninterrupted and things grinding to a costly (and customer-angering) halt. Not to mention the problem caused to the reputation of your business if your IT systems are not functioning effectively.
Having outsourced desktop support means that someone is on hand to start problem solving straight away. Your business doesn’t need to spend time and effort trying to figure out what has gone wrong, what might have caused it and what the next step is; all that needs to happen is for you to get immediate help, when you need it.
A helpdesk is the central point of contact, to call when issues arise. Helpdesk analysts would raise a ticket, determine the cause of the problem and, if unable to resolve it on the first call, assign it on to the appropriate team, which depending on the device affected and the nature of the problem, could be the desktop support team.
The service desk is the overall support service. It is intended to provide the end user with information and support for a company’s services. The service desk can be divided in three levels of support: first line, second line and third line. The desktop support component is part of the second line level of support, where issues related to individual’s devices are resolved.
