Secure smartphone access to Service Desk data increases productivity for IT support staff

Chessington, 29 May 2012 - UK-headquartered service management company Sunrise Software has announced that demand has been strong for Sostenuto Mobile, the latest addition to its flagship product line for IT and Customer Service Desk management. Two customers, including Sheffield International Venues, have already chosen Sostenuto Mobile to enable support staff secure access to Service Desk information while working remotely. Launched in April this year at the Service Desk and IT Support Show, Sostenuto Mobile allows instant, real-time access 24/7/365 to the Service Desk, using a wide range of mobile devices including the latest smartphones and tablet PCs. Both customers expect their Service Desk to provide a faster response and be more productive as a result of using mobile devices.

Michael Cook, ICT Manager at Sheffield International Venues said; “Sostenuto Mobile is what we have been waiting for. It gives my support engineers the ability to update incident records on the move, including resolution and closure so that our performance statistics become much more accurate. It allows engineers to be alerted to new incidents and service requests with immediate access into the system, to ensure they have the detailed information whilst they are out and about across our organisation. This enhances our service delivery and ultimately gives the confidence to our customers that we are doing a good job.”

Sostenuto Mobile enables IT professionals to access all Service Desk functionality from a BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, iPad and other mobile devices. It features an easy to use interface with all smartphones and integration with existing Sostenuto security standards, enabling mobile staff to access critical Service Desk information, including real-time access to incidents and changes to third party contracts.

The ability to access real-time data, with no lengthy synchronization required, saves time and increases productivity. Users can also access the self-service portal securely and raise incidents themselves using their own devices.

Geoff Rees, Sales Director of Sunrise Software, said: “The adoption of Sostenuto Mobile by two customers since its launch just a month ago demonstrates the requirement for Service Desk professionals to be able to operate in an increasingly mobile world. Sostenuto Mobile’s compatibility with an organisation’s existing devices also reduces the need to invest in new capital equipment, important in today’s financial climate. Our aim is always to be at the forefront of technology trends and offer solutions that deliver tangible benefits to assist our customers in delivering a cost-efficient, responsive IT service.”
