Freshservice, the online IT service desk software from Freshdesk, has launched its integration with Bomgar to help service desk agents troubleshoot devices quicker by allowing them to control a customer’s device directly from their desks. The new feature will help reduce the number of support interactions by facilitating clearer communication between technicians and users
"There’s nothing more frustrating to a service analyst than being unable to understand and reconstruct the user’s problem. We're thrilled to be working with Bomgar to eliminate this inconvenience and making IT support a better experience for both the parties involved", said Shihab Muhammed, Director, Product Management for Freshservice. "Analysts can take control of systems to make changes themselves, no longer requiring customers to follow a series of complicated instructions to fix issues."
Integrating Freshservice with Bomgar will allow both service desk analysts and end users to initiate a remote session in which technicians will be able to view and modify settings on the customer’s device. They will be able to see problems first-hand and can fix them immediately without having to recreate the situation on their own. Additionally, Bomgar’s cross-platform compatibility ensures that technicians can rectify issues on any device running a common operating system, including mobile devices.
Companies that require physical access to data centres during server maintenance can have their technicians use the integration to perform routine checks and complete service procedures through the service desk instead of having to get physically to the data center. Remote session details like system configuration, incident handling time and chatlog are added as a private note to the ticket. With this integration, Freshservice hopes to significantly reduce the time and cost spent by service desk analysts in providing technical assistance to users.
"Today’s IT environments are complex and require support for multiple platforms and devices in a wide array of locations," said Russ Duffey, VP of Business Development and Strategic Alliances at Bomgar. "This integration and partnership will allow IT support organizations to deliver the most responsive and comprehensive support experience to customers and end users."
