Reduced Incident Volume

Incidents and Problems are reduced as follows:

  • Predict incidents before they occur and resolve them using the reports from Network Discovery
  • Increase server reliability by monitoring key measures from Network Discovery
  • Discovery reports on stopped Windows Services including Patchlink, Automatic Updates and AV products
  • Self Service Profiles can close as well as open incidents

Faster Resolution of Incidents

Incidents and Problems are resolved quickly for the following reasons:

  • Full access to detailed asset discovery info from the incident screen
  • Rediscover the asset to get updated configuration information
  • Knowledge base relating to all previous incidents
  • Technicians can access the system from any computer on the network
  • Closing a problem record can close related incident records

Configurable Workflows

The workflow engine is configured according to customer requirements and enables the conditional routing of incidents, problems and other types of task through a defined process.

Ease of use

The browser based interface enables access from any PC on the network. The self service module is very simple and enables end users to submit incidents by email or web form, and they can subsequently close incidents themselves.

The user interface is configured to exact customer requirements, so just the information needed by the business is recorded against each incident. Since all assets are usually stored in the ITAM application, there is no requirement for technicians to complete asset information. The help desk simply finds the caller by name, location or serial number, and raises an incident against the callers computer asset. Asset information is automatically discovered on a regular basis and is always up-to-date.
