Support Technologies Roundup

Inevitably, things do go wrong: software fizzles, hardware fries, networks frazzle, PCs freeze, service personnel flips. Those skilled, premium-priced IT experts in your organization cant keep the help desk or customer support operations going forever, applying patchwork fixes to problems, while having little time to deal with root causes. Two questions emerge: will adding support technology improve the productivity of your customer-facing resources, and will this technology contribute to cost reduction through those same productivity gains as well as to your bottom line by optimizing your organizations overall interaction with (and retention of) customers?

Understanding the dynamics of your support operation and the issues it deals with (or cant deal with) will take you a long way to determine if, when and how your organization can benefit from these technologies. Evaluate competing products and put each through its paces, either through vendor or onsite installation demonstrations. Take into consideration your future needs: ensure that todays technology doesnt become tomorrows millstone.

Customer service and support processes do not end with a sale, warranty or service contract expiration; but, if youre not careful, customer satisfaction, loyalty and retention can! With that in mind, we invite you to peruse the following list of vendors of help desk and support technologies that might hold the key to keeping your service infrastructure vigorous and your competitors envious.
