Achieving Service Excellence, Modernizing Service Management
Vault Recording: TBD
Audience Level: All
In this session, Michael Thoms, Paul Gargiulo, and JT Singh will share insights and lessons learned from West Chester University's transformation from multiple help desks in a chaotic state to a single, managed, user-centric, and forward-thinking service desk. They'll provide a direct overview of WCU's implementation of its service management solution and discuss the key strategies that improved self-service and drove down MTTR. They'll also address how they used the IT Service Assurance Maturity Model for self-assessment and goal-setting, leveraged a shift-left strategy to maximize their teams, and utilized data analytics to identify performance gaps. Attendees will learn how they can replicate those successes using streamline business workflows, improved end-user experiences, and reliable reporting to make impactful, data-driven business decisions.
