IT help desk provides IT admins with an easy-to-use interface and built-in automation to simplify many of their ticketing processes.

Centralize & Simplify Ticketing Management

By automating ticketing management activities (ticket creation, assignment, escalation, etc.), IT help desk software saves a ton of time and manual effort for IT admins and help desk staff. You can easily configure multiple tiers and groups of IT staff and create ticket assignment workflows for triage and escalation. An easy-to-use service request portal allows end-users to create IT tickets, and populates self-resolution options with the help of FAQs from a knowledge base.

Knowledge Base for Self-Resolution of Tickets

With a built-in knowledge base, you can create FAQ articles and let the IT help desk display them to your help desk end-users as they enter their service requests into the service request portal.
