“South Africa is a region with a huge potential to unlock the efficiency of service management organizations and their demand to save IT costs and especially on licensing costs. We chose OSCOSM as our trusted partner, because of a similar mindset on how to support our customers. We put ourselves in their shoes, give them a solution that perfectly fits their needs and that also grows with their future demands," said Christopher Kuhn, COO from OTRS Group.
OSCOSM founder and Principal Service Management Consultant Clinton Bruigom said, “This partnership will see OSCOSM offering customer orientated services based on Outside-In approaches and Service Management good practices.”
OSCOSM’s solution will focus around professional services which enhance communication and processes for service desks, IT functional departments as well as business areas such as sales, finance or other shared service business units.

It scores with translations in 33 languages, web-based access and modular settings. Those modules comprise an integrated CMDB, Customer Survey, Reporting, TimeAccounting, Workflows and an iPhone App for mobile access for on-site technicians.
Whether as on-premises or as cloud based IT service software, OTRS is 100% free of licensing costs, with various support services offered through both OSCOSM and OTRS.

Clinton Bruigom further explained why OSCOSM services are outstanding, “OSCOSM will ultimately use simplistic service models that are designed with customer experience in mind, implemented to drive customer satisfaction and customer productivity, which historically are not always considered in big implementations.”
“We are looking forward to providing services for the OTRS IT service software with the help of our new partner OSCOSM and help companies in South Africa make their internal and external communications in service management more transparent,” concluded Christopher Kuhn, COO from OTRS Group.
