Many Service Desk managers are unaware of the critical role – beyond mere measurement – that Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) can and should play in the Service Desk.
McLean, VA (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
MetricNet will deliver the latest research into Service Desk metrics in a live complimentary webcast Tuesday, May 7, 2013 at 2pm EST. In this presentation, MetricNet, a leading source of online benchmarks and a pioneer in Service Desk benchmarking, identifies and defines the seven most important performance metrics for end-user Service Desks. They also provide benchmark ranges for these metrics, and offer a creative approach for combining these metrics into a single, all-inclusive measure of Service Desk performance.
MetricNet’s global benchmarking data has identified an increasing number of progressive Service Desks. These organizations recognize that when it comes to performance metrics, less really is more. They have discovered the 80/20 rule as it applies to Service Desk performance measurement. These world-class Service Desks have learned that the effective application of just seven KPI’s is all that is required for
measuring, managing, and continuously improving their Service Desk performance.
“Despite all the data that Service Desk managers have at their fingertips, most cannot answer a very basic question: How is my Service Desk performing?” says Rumburg “Perhaps worse, many Service Desk managers are unaware of the critical role – beyond mere measurement – that Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) can and should play in the Service Desk.”
Today’s Service Desk technologies and reporting packages make it easy to capture copious amounts of performance data. Most Service Desk managers can tell you everything from last month’s average speed of answer to yesterday’s average handle time. Unfortunately, very few have the ability to track and trend performance, identify, diagnose, and correct performance problems, and to establish performance goals and assign accountability for achieving the goals.
Those interested in attending should register in advance. All registrants will receive a link to the recorded version and all attendees will receive a copy of the presentation slides. Attendees of this webcast stand to learn how top performing Service Desks track and trend performance, use KPI’s diagnostically, and apply best practices in Service Desk Performance Measurement and Management.
