IT Service and Support Teams Urged to Celebrate Customer Service

LONDON, ENGLAND, August 23, 2010 – IT service desks across the UK and Europe are once again being urged to celebrate the importance of excellent customer service by taking part in IT Service Week – 4-8 October.

Running alongside the increasingly popular National Customer Service Week initiative which has been running since 2001, the Service Desk Institute is calling all IT service desks and support teams to get involved in IT Service Week and promote the excellent service they give to their customers, both internal and external.

Activities to promote the service desk could include job swaps between frontline analysts and management, fancy dress or themed days, PC support drop-ins, IT support roadshows and inviting customers to nominate their IT service ‘hero’.

The main purpose of IT Service Week is to:

  • highlight the dedication of the entire service desk team – first line, second line and field engineers in delivering great customer service
  • let work colleagues and customers know how vital the role of the IT support analyst/engineer is and that the IT service team committed to meeting and exceeding customer expectations
  • ‘blow the trumpet’ of the IT service desk staff who work hard and go that extra mile to ensure the technology in their business continues to function
  • boost the morale and teamwork of the IT service desk
  • recognise and reward those teams and employees who deserve it

“We know how much IT service and support teams care about the service they provide to their colleagues and customers; now we want them to show it,” says Howard Kendall, founder and chairman of SDI. “IT Service Week offers service desks the perfect opportunity to showcase the superb work of their patient and hard-working analysts and engineers and show exactly how much they contribute […]
