How does your company deal with IT issues today? Like toothaches, IT issues have less impact and are easier to deal with when they’re resolved quickly. Let’s face it, IT problems do not get better if you wait for them to take care of themselves. Really. What does it usually mean when you have a toothache that goes away on its own? (Think root canal.) You just don’t want to go there – with your teeth or your IT department, right? You need a plan, a schedule, effective communication, and resolution.

 

So what does your company do now to make sure IT problem resolution? How do you find out about issues? How do you prioritize which issues to fix first? And how do you ensure the information about the IT problems even gets to the people who can fix them?

 

Web Help Desk and Alert Central are two new SolarWinds products that can help you get those IT tickets resolved faster. Automating trouble ticketing and alert management positively impact your company’s bottom line by tracking issues and assets and ensuring issues are routed to the person most able to solve them, as quickly as possible.

 

SolarWinds Web Help Desk is a cross-platform, web-based solution that automates and simplifies complex tasks, with customizable ticketing, change management, asset management, and knowledge base functionality.
