Support desks provide an essential service to colleagues, resolving an array of problems and requests. But with the same queries and requests often seen multiple times, have you ever considered fixing once and automating the resolution?

By automating your service desk, we can free up valuable time for your staff so they can concentrate on high value tasks and deskside support, enabling them to deliver the personal service that the bots can’t!

AI and automation are revolutionising first-line support in numerous ways, supercharging efficiency, accuracy and availability. Here’s how:

Instant Response

AI-powered support provides an instant round-the-clock service to user queries, without the need for any human intervention. This ensures customers receive immediate assistance regardless of the time of day, reducing wait times and enhancing customer satisfaction.

24/7 Availability

AI-driven systems can help service desk agents to provide 24/7 global support. This ensures continuous support availability and caters to global customers across different time zones. It can also offer multilingual responses, breaking down language barriers and enabling interaction across the globe.

Automated Ticketing and Triage

AI can automatically categorise, prioritise and allocate support tickets based on urgency and complexity. This ensures that critical issues are addressed promptly leading to faster resolution times and improved customer satisfaction.


By utilising AI, there’s no limit to a large volume of enquiries which can be handled simultaneously, scaling up or down based on demand. This scalability ensures that support services can handle spikes in traffic during peak periods without compromising quality or speed of response. Queries can be answered in seconds, ensuring that SLA times are always met.


AI-powered systems provide consistent responses to frequently asked questions and issues. This helps in maintaining uniformity in support quality across different interactions, irrespective of the agent handling the query.

Continuous Improvement

AI systems can continuously learn and improve from interactions, feedback, and data insights. This intuitive learning process enables the AI to become more accurate, efficient and personalised in its responses. It also means that any previous issues identified can be pre-emptively rectified, ensuring business continuity and mitigating costly downtime.

Data-Driven Insights

AI systems can analyse data from customer interactions to identify patterns, trends and common issues. These insights can be used to optimise support processes, improve product or service offerings, and enhance overall customer experience.

Self-Service Options

By providing relevant articles, FAQs and troubleshooting guides inside an AI-driven knowledge base, it reduces the need for human intervention by providing a knowledge bank of information to answer enquiries. Common requests can also be automated, such as password resets, software installs etc, taking the manual and mundane tasks away from service desk agents who can then focus on more complex and time-consuming issues.

If your service desk agents are tired of repeating “have you tried turning it off and on again”, let’s talk!

An IT Service Desk agent’s job can be stressful, time-consuming and relentless, which can result in errors, missed SLA targets, poor customer service, security breaches and so on… But it doesn’t have to be that way.

AI and automation are supercharging first-line support by providing instant, scalable and consistent assistance while freeing up human agents to focus on more complex issues and delivering enhanced customer experiences.
