What is a service catalog?

An MSP service catalog showcases the services you offer your clients. It describes each service with relevant details and allows clients to choose from a list, reducing the number of email exchanges between your support agents and clients and saving productive time.

There are two main kinds of catalogs used in catalog management: business service catalogs and technical service catalogs. The former lists IT services offered to end users, like hardware replacements and software installations, while the latter focuses on back-end IT services, such as software patching and firewall upgrades.

Why are IT service catalogs important?

As an MSP, your technicians have their hands full managing service delivery for multiple clients. Responding to emails and creating and following up on requests on behalf of clients, on top of everyday tasks, can be exasperating. Creating a service catalog documenting the range of services your IT service desk offers ensures an automated and effortless service ordering process.
