We leveraged our experience running a global service desk for our managed services division and architected a solution addressing these challenges to deliver the lowest TCO and maximum business value.
Bedford, MA (PRWEB) September 29, 2009
InteQ, a leading provider of on demand IT Service Management solutions, has announced a program aimed at enabling organizations to replace their existing on-premise service desk software for a software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution. This exclusive offer enables organizations to switch from their current on-premise service desk software to InfraDesk, the company's ITIL SaaS Service Desk , and benefit from a solution that is implemented in weeks (not months), is easy to adopt across the enterprise, offers the lowest total cost of ownership (TCO) and is delivered out-of-the-box with automated workflows based on ITIL best practices. The program shall assist customers by creating a TCO and ROI analysis along with a roadmap to switch to InfraDesk.
Companies continue to increase their dependency on IT and mandate effective and efficient IT operations supporting the overall corporate goals. The pressure is on IT organizations to provide consistent customer service and maximize return on investments. This offer enables companies to implement InfraDesk and reallocate previously reserved budget expenses for upgrades, maintenance, developers and administrators to projects that have a direct impact on the business goals.
"There are several recurring 'pains' we are hearing from IT executives concerning their current challenges with their service desk application including forced upgrades, lack of resources required to maintain the application, high operations costs, and limited adoption across the enterprise," said Bradford Winkler, VP Sales and Marketing, SaaS Solutions, InteQ. "We leveraged our experience running a global service desk for our managed services division and architected a solution addressing these challenges to deliver the lowest TCO and maximum business value."
Organizations that will reap the highest benefits are presently experiencing one or more of the following:
- The current service desk tool version is no longer supported resulting in a forced upgrade
- The IT organization has a desire to accelerate adoption of ITIL best practices
- The current service desk tool is being retired resulting in a new implementation of another solution
- The costs associated with the present solution have become burdensome
- The service desk tool adoption within the enterprise has been limited due to complexity
According to Gartner, "SaaS offers new options for IT organizations to purchase, implement and maintain the IT Service Desk application in their environment. More choices will enable IT organizations to become more agile and utilize IT budgets more appropriately. Implementation timeframes can also be faster, leading to a faster payback. SaaS IT service desk vendors currently have 1% to 2% of the overall market, but we expect that number to increase sharply, and that, by 2012, 10% of the IT service desk market will be made up of SaaS solutions."*
While organizations of all sizes will benefit from making the switch to SaaS, those who presently have traditional solutions such as BMC Remedy, CA Service Desk Management, HP ServiceCenter (formerly Peregrine), and HP Service Desk implemented will benefit from a significant reduction in costs of up to 70%, especially if they are faced with a forced upgrade or are implementing a new solution due to end-of-product life.
Since its introduction to the service desk market, InfraDesk has been implemented in organizations globally accelerating value and savings for clients. InfraDesk was also the recipient of the Network Product Guide 'Best in SaaS' and the American Business Awards 'Best New SaaS Product'.
