Service Desk Redesign Reduces Open Tickets by 40%
When an insurance firm was frustrated with its internal IT service desk (or help desk) due to poor service levels and long resolution times, Cimphoni was brought in to completely redesign the service desk organization. We re-engineered key processes, systems and tools resulting in a reduction in abandonment rates from 23% to 9% in three months, while call volumes increased more than 15%. Open tickets were reduced by 40% and the average ticket age was reduced from more than 60 days down to 22 days. We also reduced repeat tickets through the implementation of Root Cause Analysis and Preventive Actions, using ServiceNow as the new IT service management platform.
