Service Level Agreement application that enhances the service delivery management features of our core service desk products.

SLA is defined as a means to categorise the priority and severity of service requests to ensure a prompt and consistent response within end user or customer expectations.

Monitoring SLAs and performance reporting ensures customer satisfaction goals are met and you achieve the long term service improvement objectives of your organisation.

The case for Service Level Agreements

Managers need complete and accurate statistics of call volumes and work throughput to help justify budgets and to maintain the correct level of resource skills. It is of paramount important therefore, to encourage a culture of working to SLAs and recording all support requests as soon as they arise. Our service desks provide the means for rapid and effortless entry of all work done when answering quiries and solving problems.

Demonstrating the actual volume of work received and the time taken to completion can provide the support team with motivational targets of quality service provision and help monitor ongoing service improvements with the aid of survey features.
