Delivering service desk solutions for healthcare
The highly demanding, service-driven profile of the NHS requires IT service desk software that is underpinned by efficient world-class practices and delivers outstanding business value. Sunrise ITSM software is widely used across the NHS and healthcare sector as the foundation for IT services processes with flexibility to adapt to emerging changes in demand.
Budget constraints are not new, but shared services and multiple-department, non-IT helpdesks enabled by Sunrise, can deliver more for less.
With our experience of supporting the IT Services journeys of NHS acute trusts, service providers and care organisations amongst others, we are confident our software can provide the focus and flexibility needed to underpin the newly emerging challenges of delivering integrated healthcare systems to the community.
