Parature software has drastically reduced the number of support calls and emails we receive at CCSNH
Vienna, VA (PRWEB) August 16, 2007
Parature, the global leader in on-demand customer support and help desk software, announced today that the Community College System of New Hampshire has selected Parature Support Software for Education to manage the support needs of their students, faculty and staff. Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) is New Hampshire’s statewide system of two-year colleges, offering associate degrees, professional training, and transfer pathways to four-year degrees. It is comprised of seven colleges statewide with a system office located in Concord, NH.
CCSNH’s online learning program was growing exponentially surpassing their infrastructure, according to Distance Education, Director Paul Ambrose and Project Director, Sharon Sabol, resulting in a support staff that was overwhelmed with a high volume of phone calls and email that consisted primarily of repetitive questions. Unable to focus on their strategic functions of instructional design and resources to improve the program and course quality, they set out in an effort to solve the lack of infrastructure, as well as, the redundancy in support questions. Implementing Parature Support Software for Education empowered their students, faculty and staff with self-service options, significantly reducing support calls and email to their support department. Additionally, the software enabled a trouble ticket system allowing the support staff to effectively & efficiently track and resolve support issues.
“Parature software has drastically reduced the number of support calls and emails we receive at CCSNH” says Sabol. “Users are resolving their own issues 24 hours a day, seven days a week and as a result, we are able to spend time on more strategic projects while delivering great service to our faculty, staff and students. Parature has provided an especially great advantage for us in supporting our distance learning programs where our students typically do their course work weekdays between 9:00pm and 12:00am and on the weekends”
