Service provides turn-key, on-demand technical support with advanced data analytics and mobility
CHARLOTTE, NC – MARCH 9, 2017 – CompuCom Systems, Inc. (“CompuCom®”) today launched SmartDesk SolutionTM, a complete turn-key technology support service providing mid-size companies of 250 to 3,000 users with enterprise-level technical support – without the enterprise-level price tag.
SmartDesk Solution leverages CompuCom’s 30 years of success in providing technical support to some of the most recognized global brands, and packages it into a service that provides mid-size businesses with end-to-end, standards-based technical support. The service includes 24x7x365 live support, a self-service portal and language support in English, Spanish and Canadian French.
SmartDesk Solution also provides advanced data analytics with client-facing dashboards and incident/problem management. According to Gartner1, 31 percent of mid-market CIOs state that one of their largest gaps is in information analytics/data science/business intelligence. SmartDesk Solution provides advanced data analytics to clients in near real-time.
Addressing the Changing Workforce Demographic With Mobile
As the user demographic shifts and the mobile workforce continues to expand, technically savvy employees demand faster and less intrusive ways to obtain technical support. SmartDesk Solution addresses this change by including a mobile application. Available for both iOS and Android, the mobile app puts the Service Desk in the palm of users’ hands with unlimited self-help via CompuCom’s evergreen knowledgebase, active directory password unlock/reset, ticket creation/status and 24x7 live chat with a certified support agent.
“Mid-sized businesses are typically left behind by enterprise service providers, and their tech support often suffers as a result,” said Ken Jackowitz, executive vice president of Service Experience Management at CompuCom. “SmartDesk Solution for the first time provides these organizations with a simple, affordable way to give employees 24x7 support, while driving continual service improvement through advanced analytics for the employers. Initial feedback has been extremely positive and we’re excited to bring the SmartDesk Solution offering to the growing number of mid-sized organizations that until now have been underserved.”
The solution is available now for all North American mid-sized businesses. For more information about how CompuCom can help manage an organization’s technical support, please visit: http://smartdesk.compucom.com.
