Partnering with PerceptIS fits perfectly with our strategy of 'right-sourcing,' allowing us to free up our staff to focus on our core mission.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) April 28, 2009
PerceptIS, LLC, a Cleveland-based provider of advanced help desk support, customer support services and business intelligence to higher education, announces that it has won a six-year contract to provide 24x7x365 help desk support services to the University of Virginia. Through this cooperative contract, any public or private health or educational institution, any university-related foundation, or any public body, may access this agreement.
According to James L. Hilton, Vice President and Chief Information Officer at the University of Virginia, "Partnering with PerceptIS fits perfectly with our strategy of 'right-sourcing,' allowing us to free up our staff to focus on our core mission."
PerceptIS has collaborated with U.Va. to build a comprehensive support model. Consolidating three help desks into a single support desk, the implementation will be rolled out in phases: IT support including support for Sakai, information support for Oracle's Human Resources and Financial applications, and last, support for PeopleSoft Student Information System.
Virginia H. Evans, Assistant Vice President for Integrated System Deployment and Support at U.Va., asserts, "Our team feels that PerceptIS has a good understanding of our higher ed environment and culture, and we believe that they will be a great partner helping us to serve our students, faculty and staff."
U.Va. will utilize AnalysIS©, PerceptIS' business intelligence tool. Giving clients total transparency, the AnalysIS dashboard provides daily and weekly trends on incident volume, average speed to answer, negative abandonment rate, first call resolution and customer satisfaction.
"We are thrilled to be part of the University of Virginia team," stated Bill Bradfield, Founder and CEO of PerceptIS. "Their selection and contracting process was both collaborative and interactive, and the teams bonded well throughout it. That kind of bonding is essential to us jointly delivering our primary goal: great service throughout the campus community. I am looking forward to a long and successful partnership with James, Virginia and the rest of the great folks at the university."
