Educational benefits

In recent years, education has invested massively in technology – both in and out of the classroom. Providing effective support for users of IT assets is therefore high on the agenda for the modern school, college or university. The days when logging an incident relied upon bumping into the "IT guy" in the corridor are long gone; today a much more sophisticated approach is needed!

From the developers of the award-winning classroom management tool, NetSupport School, NetSupport ServiceDesk responds to your daily support challenges by providing the processes needed to help you minimise downtime of your critical classroom and back office systems – all wrapped in an intuitive and easily accessible browser-based interface.

Warrington Collegiate"We trialled a number of commercial solutions but the majority were very ‘big and clunky’. NetSupport ServiceDesk has proved to be an incredibly easy solution to use and this has made a big difference to both the service we provide to end users and the way we manage and track reported issues. There are a number of key advantages of NetSupport ServiceDesk over other solutions we looked at − in addition to the ease of integration with the rest of our NetSupport portfolio."

Tower Hamlets"After meeting numerous help desk suppliers I was impressed with NetSupport’s solution as this met our needs, allowing all schools and field engineers access to the helpdesk via a web browser. In my opinion NetSupport ServiceDesk is very good value for money offering features other products charge a premium for. On top of this, support provided for the product is 1st class."
