Organizations that have implemented at least a basic help desk system know how valuable such a solution can be. By helping to coordinate user requests and the IT team's activity, the entire team can become more efficient and productive. But a basic ticket-tracking system only scratches the surface of what a help desk solution can offer to your organization. Remember that the idea behind a help desk - the portion of your IT team that serves as your first line of defense in supporting your users - is to get users back online as quickly as possible when problems occur, and to service users' other requests in an efficient and managed fashion. Tracking problems and requests in tickets is a fine start, but a good help desk management solution can do much, much more.
