Get ready to ROAR! Apply what you’ve learned about IT Support Improvement

IT Support Improvement

“Change is the end result of all true learning.” ―Leo Buscaglia

The results of learning are thinking differently or at least working differently. For example, have you learned that increased revenue does not always equate to increased profitability? Or that providing Techs and Service Coordinators better dashboards and holding them accountable is the best way to boost profitability?

In general, people learn in three ways or a combination thereof – Hearing, Seeing/Reading, or Doing – aka auditory**, visual, or kineticists.

** Auditory learning in this scenario is if you hear my voice in your head.

Now that we’ve officially concluded our Best in Class IT Support Team Improvement series, it’s time to check in to see what you have learned. In addition to the 15 articles spanning several months, there have been 10 downloadable educational materials, of which the top 5 have been:

  1. Status List Spreadsheet
  2. Technician Dashboard
  3. Service Coordinator Dashboard
  4. Triage SOP
  5. Customer Notification Template

Learning which appeals to ALL your senses…

’Stephen offered me, a random guy on the internet, a 30-minute coaching session at no charge. It was hugely valuable and I’m implementing some of his ideas right now’ Adam Connor, ServiceMax

For a hands-on experience, we have offered and continue to offer Free 30-minute Coaching Calls on any topic you choose; however, our expertise is on Service Delivery Optimization, of which IT Support Team Improvement is a significant portion. These coaching sessions provide learning opportunities in all three ways (voice, visual, doing).

Our mission and passion are to:

As you can see, your ability to learn is directly dependent on our ability to teach, and we are working hard, learning how to teach most effectively – all so we can do a better job tomorrow.

How do you know if your IT Support Team has learned and applied the concepts?

Here are the two important KPI’s these key concepts impact most when it comes to profitability at your Managed Service Provider:

  • Resource Utilization is at 80-90%
  • SLA’s across the board are at 95-98%

If this is not the performance your team is enjoying at your MSP, then we have let you down with this IT Support Team series of articles. Or, maybe you’re not sure and are unaware of how to read the reports. It could also be that Autotask configurations are holding you back. There are a lot of variables to take into consideration here.

  1. I haven’t had the opportunity to read through all of these, but started about 1/2 way through. They are well written and to the point which I like. There are a lot of good items in these, they dont all apply to every PSA implementation due to cultural differences but there is probably 70% of the advice here that I see relevant to us.

    1. Steve, you are spot on. Autotask gives us great flexibility in the tool and most of Service Delivery applies to whatever PSA you are using. As you mentioned about 70% of the time, we have come off our recommendations and standard builds to customize the PSA and/or our SOPs to meet the Customer unique situation or needs. That is the fun of coaching.

      Thanks again for following the articles and let me know if you have more questions.
