Up One Level

Help Desk


Staff, either within the organisation IT Department or based at a hardware/software supplier, who are responsible for assisting non-technical staff in the use of computer systems, and resolving problems which may arise. Staffing a Help Desk is an ulcerous job and many Help Desks perform superbly, but... The telephone lines of external Help Desks are frequently engaged and if/when contact is finally made, users will discover that many Help Desk staff are undoubted experts in negotiating the very small print contained in contracts and warranty agreements.
