management system which allows businesses to implement strong
and effective work-flows for IT Support requests.
The Support Ticketing Management System (also called as Help Desk or Help Desk Ticketing System or Remote Help Desk Support System), enables IT Support Providers to keep track of tickets raised by Clients, attend to them, reassign them to appropriate department, and generate reports and more.

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.

TYPES OF SERVICE DESK
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.
