Teleopti raises the bar even higher in IT service process, customer satisfaction and social responsibility
Teleopti’s service desk is the first in Sweden to have achieved certification and joins a select few worldwide teams in achieving a 4 star certification including those from Telefónica, Sodexo, tickets.com and Vocalink.
Providing support to customers in over 70 countries, Teleopti’s multi-lingual service desk, situated in Sweden and China, was praised by SDI for raising its performance across all concept criteria during a period of rapid expansion into new global markets. The most notable areas of improvement were in the certification concepts of processes, partnerships and resources, customer satisfaction and social responsibility.
“We are delighted to receive this recognition from SDI for the continuous investments in providing an exceptional level of support to our customers and partners. Closeness is an important company value and Service Desk is the corner stone in fulfilling this. In the annual customer survey, year after year, more than 9 out of 10 customers state they would recommend Teleopti as a vendor to other companies” says Olle Düring, CEO of Teleopti. ”And we will continue to invest – hand in hand with the international expansion”.
“Increasing our Service Desk Certification maturity rating is the result of a company culture where the customer always comes first and a dedication to defining, refining and documenting roles, responsibilities and processes,” says Maureen Lundgren Gomes, Service Desk Manager at Teleopti.
Howard Kendall, Master Auditor at SDI, continues: “The 4 star Service Desk Certification rating is an excellent achievement and testament to the well-structured programme of continuous improvement that Teleopti has in place. Coupled with this, we have evidenced exceptional leadership and excellent communication to staff who in turn are consistently motivated and developed. For staff to feel valued and respected is essential but to be scored as the most happy team in the company-wide staff survey is brilliant!”
The SDI’s SDC audit evaluates service desk operations against an internationally accepted global standard for best practice, providing companies with a benchmark to form a baseline for service improvements. Based around ITIL and ITSM frameworks, the certification evaluates companies in the following areas: incident and problem resolution; change and release management; service level management; availability and capacity management; configuration management; business continuity and financial management; knowledge management and customer relationship management.
