Self-Service is not just a buzzword in IT. From banking to supermarkets, Self-Service is a growing trend widespread across many of our day to day activities. Yet, only about half of our respondents said that they were currently using it on the IT Service Desk. This suggests that for many, Self-Service will be a key area for development in the coming months and years.
Based on our recent survey of the IT community in the UK, over 700 responses were collected and analysed in our just-released white paper titled “6 steps to effective Self-Service”. Using this robust amount of information, the paper gives a concise and informative overview about the key success factors, concerns and challenges, faced by organizations implementing a Self-Service initiative.
Key topic areas:
- Service re-design
- Communicating success
