The role: Technical Support Specialist
As the Help Desk Support Specialist you’ll provide customer-friendly Help Desk services for assisting clients via phone support and remote control with problems using IT products and services. Problem statuses are tracked using Service Now.
- Investigating, diagnosing and resolving problems for pcs, printers, servers, active directory, data communications hardware and software.
- Technician will develop formally written problem solving solutions/procedures and disseminate procedures to and amongst all unit staff.
- Technician will monitor the ticketing system, communicate with users for a prompt resolution to the problem and document all steps taken to resolve
- Assigning severity levels – help desk agents evaluate trouble calls based on the impact and urgency of the trouble. If the agent taking the call cannot resolve the trouble on the first call, the agent creates an incident and assigns it a severity based on that evaluation.
- Coordinating related incidents – help desk agents determine whether or not the trouble reported is related to another call. When it is, they link these events. This linkage helps assess the extent of the trouble and increases efficiency by assigning resources appropriately.
- Communicating with customers and technical support staff – When customers establish accounts, they select the kinds of communication they wish to receive. As incidents move from initial reporting through to resolution, the help desk communicates with customer liaisons based on customer preference. The agents reach out to technical staff when they have an incident that needs attention, and frequently updates both technical support staff and management on the status of service-affecting outages.
