LONDON, ENGLAND - Delivering SaaS like greased lightning from the data cloud, Web Help Desk, in conjunction with its exclusive EMEA partner UniPress Software Ltd, announces new european-based hosting and support for its award winning SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) help desk solution localised for organisations and institutions operating in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. This new Web Help Desk option introduces millions of new customers to the unprecedented speed, performance, and reliability of an industry leading SaaS service desk solution.

"The odds of success in today's stormy economic climate are greatly enhanced by an organisation’s ability to provide exemplary real-time customer service and exceed customer expectations" said Terry Siddall, VP, Web Help Desk. "With the growth of high speed network infrastructure, and the expenses associated with traditional on-premise licensing and resource allocation, there has been a marked shift towards the on-demand SaaS model within businesses of all sizes."

"However," interjected John Ryan, Managing Director at UniPress Software, "even minor delays between a SaaS provider and an organisation’s service desk staff can be problematic. Speed, security and reliability from a SaaS provider are paramount for this environment. The introduction of our european-hosted SaaS option will provide the EMEA region with the same high standards of customer service, speed, security and reliability enjoyed by Web Help Desk customers in the Americas."

The ‘on-demand’ Web Help Desk option allows customers to acquire their help desk software functionality on a pay-as-you-go basis with a 99.9% uptime guarantee. This eliminates large upfront costs and technical infrastructure investments associated with traditional on-premise licensing options.

Web Help Desk provides a "try it before you buy it" trial period for SaaS plans. After a free 30 day trial period, the test environment can be converted into a live production application with no loss of data or configuration.

The new european-based help desk hosted option encompasses both the Web Help Desk Pro Edition and Lite Edition feature sets. Whether the need is for a simple service request tracking solution within a tight budget, or a full ITIL inspired enterprise ITSM solution, the Web Help Desk SaaS options exemplify the ultimate in speed, performance, productivity and value for your service desk...from any corner of the globe.

Features available within the Web Help Desk Lite Edition SaaS Plans include:

Web Portal - A full customer support web portal for endusers to submit service requests, view ticket updates, and seek self help or view auto-suggested solutions from the knowledge base.

Email-to-Ticket Conversion - Automatic email-to-ticket conversion ensures that service requests submitted via email do not fall through the cracks and breach SLA.
