Your IT help desk plays an important role in the everyday running of the company.
It's a resource that users or employees are turning to in order to get on with their jobs, so what the help desk does can have a real impact on how well everything else goes.
When you’re tasked with managing a help desk, it’s important to have some key metrics in place for measuring the effectiveness of your operation.
Metrics are what let you know if you’re improving, declining or remaining steady in key areas. Notably, whether you’re managing a help desk or a service desk, they remain pretty much the same. Key metrics are focused on the use of your service and your service delivery.
