Ensure higher end user satisfaction levels by defining appropriate SLAs and making sure that services are delivered on time, and incidents are resolved well within SLAs. ServiceDesk Plus helps you ensure maximum SLA compliance with the following features:

  • Ability to create site-specific incident and request SLAs
  • Auto assigning of SLAs to tickets based on incoming ticket parameters
  • Multi-level escalations, with custom templates for response time SLA, and resolution time SLA escalations.

Reinventing the wheel every single time can drain out a lot of your team's productive time. The built-in knowledge base in ServiceDesk Plus saves you this trouble by helping you document knowledge resources within your help desk. ServiceDesk Plus also lets you:

  • Create knowledge articles on a rich text editor and provide role-based access to end users and technicians.
  • Have a streamlined approval process to ensure the quality of knowledge articles.
  • Organize articles under topics and enable advanced keyword search for easy accessibility of articles.

Save the trouble of shuttling between locations and buildings to diagnose incidents by establishing remote control over the end user machine right from your desk. With ServiceDesk Plus, you can:

  • Establish remote control over end user workstations using the windows remote desktop tool, by installing light weight agents, or through third-party integrations like Dameware.
  • Take control of workstations remotely through VNC (Virtual Network Computing) servers if your organization already has VNC installed across all workstations.

Delayed and wrong assignments of tickets and unassigned tickets in queue can lead to longer resolution times, which can impact end-user satisfaction. ServiceDesk Plus ensures that your IT help desk stays clear of such hurdles by:

  • Creating business rules to handle tickets based on incoming ticket parameters.
  • Assigning tickets automatically to technicians based on round robin or load balancing algorithms.
  • Enabling exception of tickets based on their parameters and excluding technicians from ticket auto assign whenever necessary.
