Product Brief

Cognidesk 1.0

In today's modern workplace environment, providing a great workplace IT support helps define a positive culture of an organization. Once your employees are given proper support, the productivity increases, naturally. In a traditional IT support model, employees spend a lot of time writing lengthy emails or making long calls with the IT Helpdesk. Common support issues such as repairing or replacing an employee asset, adding colleagues to the distribution list, onboarding new users and providing access to business applications, both users and Helpdesk are left with a pile of support requests backlogs causing a serious dip in productivity. Even retrieving a document or a simple password reset can be time consuming taking a nose dive in productivity. Managing an IT Helpdesk can cost a lot of money to companies as companies spend an average of $14 per support ticket or call to Helpdesk, without any ROI. And often putting IT managers under endless performance pressure as well. The ultimate challenge for companies today is how to digitize this legacy approach using latest technologies, provide support anytime and anywhere to users, freeing up expensive IT resources, and all this whilst lowering the cost. The task seems impossible.
