With the COVID-19 pandemic, organizations are making it mandatory for employees to work from home for an extended period of time. Many of these employees have never done this before, and the onus is being placed on IT to ensure employee productivity.
While IT resources are trying to figure out how to enable all employees to work remote, those same IT resources need to staff the help desk. This has resulted in help desk wait times that stretch multiple hours.
All of this is compounded by the fact that work from home policies are changing on a daily basis, making it very hard for IT to effectively respond to questions—so they keep answering the same questions over and over again.
Join former CIO at Splunk, Declan Morris and Espressive CEO, Pat Calhoun as they discuss what customers are doing to cope with the new strain put on their IT service management teams due to the pandemic.

This webinar will prepare you to automate your help desk to respond to this crisis.
