Schaumburg, Illinois (PRWEB) September 23, 2014
Nordion, a global health science company, recently selected ABS as its Service Desk Outsourcing partner. The Ontario-based firm had been evaluating multiple vendors over a rigorous four month RFP process and focused on potential providers that could offer a detailed security and compliance program; a well-trained and experienced staff; and a robust, enterprise-wide ITIL tool. Under the new two-year agreement, ABS will be furnishing service desk support to Nordion's end users throughout Canada and its satellite offices. Included in the solution is ABS Service Manager, ABS's IT Service Management (ITSM) platform which is delivered to clients using a cloud-based (Software as a Service) model. ABS Service Manager is ITIL v3 compliant with full support for Incident, Request, Problem, Change, Configuration, and Knowledge Management workflows.
The ABS Global Service Desk will handle all incoming contacts for Nordion on a 24 x 7 x 365 basis, troubleshoot over 100 standard business and proprietary applications, and measure customer satisfaction with electronic surveys. ABS will also provide on demand dashboard reports and service desk metrics and conduct monthly service desk reviews, with a focus on continual service improvement.
"Crucial to the selection process was the fact that ABS had an Information Security Management System program in place including privacy policies and a Business Continuity plan that instilled confidence in our latest client," says ABS Sales Executive Stacey Roos. "In return we're extremely grateful to Nordion for having awarded us their service desk business and, hopefully, will continue to justify their trust for years to come."
