Help Desk: Top 5 Stats
Last week, we released our latest infographic based on the annual results from our Help Desk. We’re proud to perform 10 x better than industry standard IT Support. Here are our top 5 takeaways from the report.
A key statistic identified from our annual results was the outstanding performance in relation to our service level agreements. Agreed with every customer, it is our aim to end every call to our Help Desk with a positive result, the problem solved, and a happy customer. For example, achieving an average first line fix rate of 81% in 2016 exceeds our customer expectation.
Understanding the customer
We have created an environment within our service delivery teams which truly understands customers’ requirements.
