Managed Helpdesk

A Single Point of Contact 24/7

For many companies, delivering Service Desk solutions such as incident management or administration to staff members on a 24/7 basis is cost-prohibitive, or relies on the complex networks of on-call systems. These challenges have been increasing as organisations respond to the move towards flexible working.

APSU believes Service Desks are at the core of delivering efficient IT to an organisation, as they are seen as the “face of IT”. Through the use of APSU’s Service Desk services, organisations can extend the capabilities delivered to end users while ensuring a consistently high level of service delivery.

APSU’s Service Desk solutions are delivered to customers across Europe exclusively from our two UK-based operations centres.

Service desk reporting is a key management tool for both APSU and our clients. Reporting often provides the big-picture perspective that reveals the “real issues” underlying our client’s end users needs. During service take-on, APSU’s service delivery managers will work with our client’s to define reports that work towards identifying their common user problems.
APSU will through the use of Service desk reporting and procedural review, strive for first-contact resolution. By analyzing the top Service desk requests, we will work with our clients to pro-actively identify and resolve repeat calls in order that call volumes are reduced.

“APSU have provided iSeries and Power Systems services to Domestic & General since 2005. These services include 24/7 systems management, support and configuration of our high-availability environments, out of hours Service Desk and dedicated on-site consultancy. They have always been flexible to satisfy our requirements and meet our demanding standards.

On several occasions we have thanked their whole support team for a significant contribution to our major IT programmes. In my opinion if a company is looking to outsource management of their iSeries/Power systems, APSU should be a serious contender.”

Ian Ward, IT Operations Manager, Domestic & General
