Service Desk: Instant Solutions for IT Issues

Service Desk: High Quality Assistance at DigitalCook Qatar

A service desk is a communication hub where users can ask for assistance and receive IT support.

Why is the Service Desk Important for Business?

The IT Service Desk is designed to address broader business needs and enhance users’ technical experience at work. The IT service desk facilitates communication between other service managers and the user community (usually employees and other stakeholders of the organization). It also plays an important role in assisting with issue management, capturing change demands, maintaining third-party contacts, and handling software licenses.

The Different Types of Service Desks: Local and Centralized

A ticket represents a technical problem and encompasses what the user is having trouble with. The ITSM Service Desk manages these tickets. Currently, there are essentially four types of service desks:

  • Local Service Desk: The Local Service Desk serves the needs of small businesses. The location is on or near the company premises. However, it cannot handle a large number of service requests or calls.
  • Centralized service desk: Combining multiple local service desks into one, this ITSM service desk can handle multiple operations with few workforce members
  • Virtual Service Desk: This is the most common type of service desk. A single central service desk handles all tickets from different locations. 
  • Follow the Sun: A single central service desk handles all tickets from different locations.
