Part I: How Service Desk Flexibility Makes More Business Sense
Can your Service Desk scale up or down in swiftly enough response to your business needs?
This happens by creating a human interface that assists your customers (end users) in getting answers and resolutions more quickly.
In today’s demanding business environment, parameters are changing faster than ever before, requiring you to respond with more greater agility.
The Service Desk needs to be able to scale up (or scale down) fast enough to ensure your business doesn’t suffer. Let’s look at how you can build flexibility into your Service Desk’s DNA.
Outsourcing is often the simplest and most cost effective way of delivering the flexibility your business needs.
The costs and complexity involved in building in flexibility in an in-house Service Desk are usually on the higher side. Manpower, technical resources and training needs are just some of issues you need to be concerned about, unless your Service Desk is managed by a vendor who understands your needs.
The outsourced Service Desk is likely to be more flexible than your in-house operation, affording your business the priority it deserves.
As your business grows, your Service Desk needs to be nimble enough to get this support requirement off the ground before your customers start complaining about the inaccessibility of support. In addition you are likely to get to a point where you need off-hour or weekend support.
On the reverse, if your business requires you to scale down your Service Desk, you can do so without the hassle of having to let go of your employees, leaving the job to your vendor instead.
