According to a recent survey conducted by the Help Desk Institute (HDI), 86 percent of IT departments said they felt pressure to show value to the business. With that kind of pressure, IT needs to think bigger about their direct impact on the business. Meaning IT must get out of the weeds – no more changing toner or addressing the same questions time and time again.

Self-service is the single most effective way for IT departments to elevate the level of support and help they provide. Moreover, self-service oriented companies save funds by helping consumers and employees help themselves when it comes to high-volume, low-risk requests. And, there is little downside. Consumers get an efficient, convenient experience by having smart, time saving integrations at their fingertips, without relying on a traditional high-touch model.
