Service Desk Vs Help Desk

There is some confusion around the concept that a service desk is different from a help desk. Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably, and in most cases - they are completely separate.

Service desks focus on the corporate strategy and is a single point of contact between IT management and its users. Help desk focuses more on the end-user needs, such as your customers and employees, or your clients if you're a managed service provider (MSP). They provide incident management to ensure that a customer's problems are resolved quickly and efficiently.

How IT Ticketing System Works?

IT ticketing system's main purpose is to enable people visiting a website to report their issues. It could be anything from site navigation, products or services, and it could also be used by employees, customers, clients or business partners. The user simply clicks a button to access the site's help desk and creates a ticket. The ticket system is the best option to deal with customer questions or reported issues.

There are, generally, four types of Service Desks available-

Local Service Desk: Located within or near an enterprise's premises, it caters to the requirements of a small or medium-scale enterprise. It would help address requirements of country-wise or location-wise entities of an enterprise. However, this service desk would not be enough to handle large volumes of calls or service requests.

Centralised Service Desk: A more cost-effective and efficient solution for ticket management, the centralized service desk helps manage larger volumes of tickets/calls with fewer staff members. An enterprise that maintains local service desks will benefit by merging them into a centralized desk.

Virtual Service Desk: This is the most commonly used type of service desk among enterprises, corporate and IT companies. Through the Internet, a single, centralized Service Desk takes care of all tickets raised from all types of devices and entities in different geographical locations. The tickets can also be addressed and managed by personnel in various geographical locations.

Follow the Sun Service: Some enterprises combine Service Desks located at multiple geographical locations to provide round-the-clock service.
