If your Help Desk is unable to keep pace with your customers' demands, or if you want to focus your Help Desk more towards solving problems rather than simply tracking them, Progent's Help Desk Consulting Services can deliver a effective, budget-friendly solution.
Progent offers three ways to help mid-size and large businesses create a cost-effective and productive in-house Help Desk.
1. Consulting: Progent's consulting services include ROI analysis, process analysis and improvement, management reporting, training, and documentation. Progent's Help Desk Consulting services cover these areas:
- Analyzing, auditing, upgrading and creating Help Desk processes and procedures
- Evaluating and training internal staff
- Consultation with Help Desk management concerning software selection and options for outsourcing Help Desk staff
- Documenting procedures for new processes so you can sustain and build on improvements
2. Software Selection and Deployment: A variety of high-quality Help Desk software is available, but products may cost too much, lack key features, or align poorly with your organization's business goals or corporate culture. Progent has the experience to help you choose a solution that's right for your company. Progent can also help you deploy Help Desk software and integrate it into your IT infrastructure.
3. Staffing: Some clients prefer to outsource Help Desk resources rather than hire them. Other clients require temporary assistance to augment existing staff or fill gaps during employee absences. Unfortunately, not all outsourcing channels provide the quality and reliability your customers demand. Progent's Help Desk Staffing Service is designed to deliver quality personnel by selecting results-oriented individuals trained to use proven techniques to interact with clients and solve problems. In addition, Progent's on-going education programs keep Help Desk specialists up to date on the latest technology. As a result, Progent can provide people who resolve your customers' problems rather than merely answer the phone.
