As a technology provider, we always say we don’t just work with our clients – we partner with them for mutual success. A critical part of that is being there to help when something goes wrong. That means running a friendly and efficient IT helpdesk. When you’re looking for a new IT partner, there are two tests you must apply to their helpdesk.
First, how much focus does it have on customer service? Is the whole business geared around identifying and fixing problems quickly? You’d be surprised how many IT support providers misdiagnose problems, take days to solve them, or confuse clients with tech-speak. The other test is excellent technical skills. Of course, you want issues to be handled quickly. But really you want a proper resolution, not a temporary fix. Find out the first-time fix rate of any IT support provider you’re considering working with. And rather than take their word for it – ask to speak to one of their existing clients. Any good IT support provider should be happy for you to speak to a client to get genuine feedback. Don’t be afraid to ask.
