Our customer, a leading organization in the finance industry, was facing significant challenges with their incumbent vendor in managing their IT helpdesk services. The low customer satisfaction (CSAT) or Net Promoter Score (NPS), low self-service adoption, high reopen ticket count, and low SLA compliance were hampering their IT support operations. In search of a reliable and customer-centric solution, they turned to Ripton Solutions to transform their IT helpdesk services.
Challenges Faced with Incumbent Vendor
- Low CSAT or NPS Score: The customer received consistently low satisfaction scores from their employees, indicating a lack of quality service delivery and customer-centric approach.
- Low Self-Service Adoption: The incumbent vendor failed to provide effective self-service options, resulting in a high dependency on the helpdesk for routine and basic IT requests.
- High Reopen Ticket Count: A significant number of IT support tickets were being reopened due to unresolved issues or inadequate resolution, causing frustration among users and increased workload for the helpdesk team.
- Low SLA Compliance: The incumbent vendor struggled to meet the agreed Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for response and resolution times, leading to prolonged downtime and user dissatisfaction.
- Inefficient Ticket Routing: The incumbent vendor struggled with effective ticket routing, leading to delays in ticket assignment to the appropriate IT support staff, resulting in longer resolution times and frustrated end-users.
- Lack of Proactive Monitoring: The incumbent vendor lacked proactive monitoring capabilities, resulting in a reactive approach to addressing IT issues and a higher number of critical incidents impacting business operations.
- Limited Knowledge Management: The incumbent vendor had inadequate knowledge management practices, making it difficult to capture, share, and leverage IT knowledge, leading to repeated issues and longer resolution times.
- Poor Communication and Reporting: The incumbent vendor provided limited visibility and transparency into IT support activities, with inadequate reporting and communication channels, leading to a lack of confidence and trust in the services provided.
