Managed Help Desk Services: A Smarter Way to Do IT

Managed Help Desk Services: A Smarter Way to Do IT

When your staff calls the internal help desk for technical support, what response do they get? Do they get an immediate resolution? Is the response quick and personalized? Or, is your busy office manager hitting the pause button as they wait in queue while other requests get addressed? Perhaps it’s time for managed help desk services.

As you likely know, when your client, patient, or customer runs into an issue or needs IT assistance, the response they get can have a major impact on the outlook of your entire organization. What does good service look like to today’s consumers?

  • 33 percent of consumers say it has to do with resolving an issue in a single interaction
  • 31 percent report that it comes down to getting help from a knowledgeable representative
  • 21 percent share that they are more satisfied when they do not have to repeat information over and over

But as a busy professional working with a small team or managing things yourself, addressing these help desk issues for clients and employees likely adds to a long list of to-dos—and if this is the case, your organization’s help desk support may not always happen as effectively or efficiently as you or your clients might wish.

In this case, managed help desk services are a smart strategy to support the needs of your team and your clients, manage your time, and even move your IT operations and your entire business forward. Here’s how.

What Are Managed Help Desk Services?

Managed IT services are there to act as part of your internal team; they’re designed to lighten the load of your team and level up the quality of your work in several ways—but what about managed help desk services? Managed help desk services have the same intention—these services are designed to eliminate valuable but time-consuming work from your docket, act as an extension of your team, and empower you to focus your efforts on your core business objectives. 

Without managed IT help desk services, it’s likely that you dedicate a great deal of time, money, and resources to supporting the IT needs of your users. A managed help desk assumes the responsibility of customer support so your IT team can move forward with everything else.

What This Means

When you outsource your help desk, not only does it free up your team to tackle other tasks, but it also means you have the best experts on the job to offer IT solutions, apply different technologies, and give support to your clients, customers, and patients. 

Think of it this way: Today’s current IT climate is all about innovation. After all:

  • 70 percent of companies are actively adopting cloud, hybrid, or multi-cloud technologies.
  • By 2024, over half of digital user interactions will be driven by new technologies like AI-driven speech and computer algorithms.
  • The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of low-code development platforms is estimated to be around 30 percent through 2030 to help organizations adopt new technologies faster and easier than ever.

But when you spend all of your effort on help desk tickets, there’s no time for this kind of innovation—you only have the resources to fix the status quo. What we’re seeing now is that IT is moving away from simply maintaining current operations. Instead, IT is quickly becoming an indispensable player in crafting new strategies to advance what’s possible. When you outsource your help desk and service desk, your organization can dedicate more time and resources to digital transformation—which means better service for your clients, more efficient operations for your team, and expanded capabilities for everyone.
