Mobestar provides centralised support to its external customers with Hornbill's Supportworks
August 9th, 2007 -- Specialist provider of mobile solutions to web-based service providers invests in service desk to provide continuous technical support to commercial customers.
Mobestar provides 'turn-key' solutions that enable mobile networks to replicate and enhance the user involvement and interaction of traditional web based communities. Following a fast implementation, Supportworks is being used to support Mobestar's customers.
Supportworks was selected after an evaluation process against other support desk management products, for both its 'out-of-the-box' functionality and competitive pricing. Using Supportworks the IT team saves time on incident management, logging and tracking faults as well as reporting back to customers. Logging all information centrally and using reports generated straight from the Hornbill system enables the team to meet SLA targets. Mobestar has branded its customer portal and enhanced the service further by enabling customers to view attached log files over the web.
Colin Mead, Operations Manager at Mobestar said, "As a service provider it is vital that we can provide business continuity by supporting our customers responsively and meeting our stringent Service Level Agreements.
"Hornbill's Supportworks has delivered everything that we needed it to do, with no add-ons required and at an accessible cost. Because it is so configurable we were able to get up and running in a very short time with the help of Hornbill's professional services, and it is very straightforward to add support for new customers. We can now monitor and report against SLAs for different customers, and the online portal enables us to provide transparency to customers by providing them with easy access to information."
Gerry Sweeney, Managing Director of Hornbill Systems commented, "Supportworks provides a wide range of out-of-the-box functionality, which includes external customer service as well as any internal desk. This enables our customers to match their needs with a working solution very quickly. Mobestar has taken full advantage of the system's flexibility for a centralised service desk, which supports different customer requirements and can be further developed to meet its growing business requirements."
