The ServiceDesk enhances the handling of IT service requests and allows the IT personnel to spend more time on development tasks. The IT Services will also start using the joint Altiris information system of the LUC IT Services. The system is used to register support service requests, to supervise work in real time, and to transfer cases to be solved by experts when necessary. The system also enables us to measure the support services and thereby develop them continuously.

Support ServiceDesk operation complying with the joint operating model of LUC IT Services has been launched in the Municipal Education and Training Consortium Lappia and in the Rovaniemi Municipal Federation of Education.

• All IT service requests are made through the ServiceDesk – either by calling or by sending email.
• The processing of service requests is followed up continuously, and users get the status information by email.
• The ServiceDesk steers the operation of on-site support.
o Most of the service requests can be handled expediently during a phone call or after reception of an email.
o The ServiceDesk dispatches the on-site support when necessary.
