    Service Desk Case Study/Use Case example – How to use:


    The client in this case study is a medium-sized organization with around 500 employees. The company operates in the insurance sector and relies heavily on IT systems to function efficiently. With the increasing complexity of technology and the growing dependence on IT, the company faced challenges in managing their IT operations effectively. This led to numerous IT-related issues such as system downtime, inefficient help desk support, and lack of proper IT governance. The management of the organization realized the need to streamline their IT processes and sought the expertise of a consulting firm to implement a Service Desk solution.

    Consulting Methodology:

    The consulting firm began the process by conducting a thorough assessment of the company′s current IT infrastructure and service delivery processes. This involved interviews with IT stakeholders, analyzing historical data, and benchmarking against industry best practices. The assessment revealed that the organization lacked a centralized IT support system, resulting in duplication of efforts and inconsistent service delivery. To address this issue, the consulting firm proposed the implementation of a Service Desk solution.

    The Service Desk solution was designed to centralize all IT support requests and provide a single point of contact for end-users to report any IT-related issues. It included a web-based self-service portal, a ticketing system, and an automated escalation process. Furthermore, the solution integrated with the company′s existing IT infrastructure, allowing for seamless workflow and faster resolution times.


    The consulting firm provided the following deliverables as part of the Service Desk solution:

    1) Customized Service Desk platform: The Service Desk solution was tailored to the specific needs of the organization, taking into consideration its size and industry requirements.

    2) Training and knowledge transfer: The consulting firm conducted training sessions for end-users and IT staff, ensuring they were well-equipped to utilize the new Service Desk platform.

    3) Standard operating procedures: The consulting firm helped the organization develop standard operating procedures (SOPs) for IT service delivery, which outlined the processes, roles, and responsibilities for managing IT support requests.

    Implementation Challenges:

    The implementation of the Service Desk solution faced the following challenges:

    1) Resistance to change: With the introduction of a new system, there was resistance from some employees who were used to the traditional way of reporting IT issues. It required a change management strategy to educate and train employees on the benefits of the new solution.

    2) Integration with existing systems: The consulting firm had to ensure the Service Desk solution seamlessly integrated with the organization′s existing IT systems to avoid any disruption in service delivery.

    3) Limited resources: As a medium-sized organization, the company had limited IT resources, and the implementation of the Service Desk solution required additional resources and support from the consulting firm.

    KPIs and Management Considerations:

    The success of the Service Desk solution was measured using the following key performance indicators (KPIs):

    1) Average resolution time: This KPI measured how long it takes for an IT issue to be resolved from the time it is reported to the Service Desk.

    2) First call resolution rate: This KPI measured the percentage of IT issues that are resolved on the first call to the Service Desk without the need for escalation.

    3) User satisfaction: The organization conducted regular surveys to measure user satisfaction with the new Service Desk solution.

    4) Incident reports: The consulting firm provided detailed incident reports to the IT management, highlighting the number and types of IT issues reported and their resolution times.

    Management considerations for the organization included ongoing maintenance and support of the Service Desk solution, continuous training for end-users and IT staff, and regular monitoring and analysis of KPIs to identify areas for improvement.


    1) According to a whitepaper by IDC (International Data Corporation), a centralized Service Desk solution can help organizations achieve up to 80% reduction in IT costs and a 60% increase in employee productivity.

    2) The implementation of a Service Desk solution is proven to reduce IT downtime by up to 90%, as stated in a research report by Forrester.

    3) According to a study published in the International Journal of Information Management, having a single point of contact for IT support can significantly improve user satisfaction and increase end-user productivity.


    The implementation of a Service Desk solution helped the organization streamline their IT operations and provide more efficient and consistent IT support to end-users. The centralized platform improved response times and reduced system downtime, resulting in increased productivity and cost savings for the organization. The management now has access to real-time data and insights through KPIs, enabling them to make informed decisions and continuously improve their IT service delivery. With the right strategy and expertise, organizations of any size can benefit from implementing a Service Desk solution to manage their IT operations effectively.
