How Workplace Services Help Your Business Power Modern Work

By David Downs, Product Owner, Cybersecurity

Modern, cost-effective end-user support is easier to achieve than you might think — and it makes your workplace stronger while taking stress off your plate. Let’s explore the key components of modern end-user support that lowers costs, transforms support, drives operational excellence, and increases user satisfaction.

End-user support challenges

Employees have mobilized, and business is no longer confined to a fixed office space. We’re living in the era of the hybrid workforce with employees working from home, the coffee shop, or on the go. This work-from-anywhere environment requires a new approach to IT support.

Regardless of where end users work, they need access to intuitive IT support — but many organizations are still struggling to meet this need. Here are some of the most common challenges we see:

  • Internal IT technicians are swamped with basic end-user support needs for app support, PC break/fix, and device requests that are logistically challenging.
  • Employee support has become expensive.
  • Resolution times are lengthy.
  • Poor, unwieldy end-user experiences have resulted in a loss in productivity for all involved.

Many organizations are taking advantage of modern workplace services to streamline and manage end-user environments, deliver support to transform IT processes, and empower employee productivity.
