Education & Oxygen Service Desk
IT support and the Education Sector
IT support is critical to the smooth running of any school, college or university. The Education Sectors IT needs can be very similar to that of larger corporate organisations, but with only 10% of the IT Staff of a larger corporation in some cases, Education Sector Organisations can find it difficult to provide the service that their IT users need. There is a lot of pressure on IT staff to deliver exceptional quality of service to staff and students and managing a busy support desk with limited resources or without a solid Service Desk Tool hinders the whole process and greatly impacts the effectiveness of your IT team.
The Service Desk also needs to be able to follow more formal processes such as FITS or ITIL and may also need to be configured for other services such as Facilities and Estates Management in order to get the most value for the product. That's no mean feat for a small IT department on heavily cut budgets to undertake.
Resolving service requests quickly and seamlessly is vital as it not only increases productivity and improves Staff and Students morale but enables your IT department to focus on more strategic and impactful projects instead of being bogged down in dealing with service requests.
