Extend Your Support Capability
Androgogic operates an extended-hours Service Desk for both students and staff. It is Australian owned and operated 363 days of the year and is available via a web portal, a 1800 free-call phone number or by email. Our experience is that online learning is extensively utilised out of standard business hours, and that providing active support services across these times can significantly enhance the experiences of students and staff in their online learning environment.
Androgogic's Service Desk achieved more than 98% of expected Service Level Agreement targets last year. The support team has a well-developed knowledge of eLearning products built across experience with multiple higher education institutions. As well as maintaining an internal knowledge base, they have direct access to experienced second-level Educational Technologists and the Androgogic development team for escalation and resolution of complex incidents.
Quality support with ITIL
At the heart of our support services is are a set of ITIL-oriented policies and processes, supported by LiveTime™ - an ITIL compliant, fully featured incident tracking and management system which stores your service level agreements and tracks and reports all incidents and problems against the pre-agreed benchmarks. ITIL management of incidents ensures the same things don’t go wrong over and over again, but are captured in a systemic ‘problem’ which can then be investigated and a systemic solution put in place to stop the generation of new incidents of the same type. Androgogic seeks to proactively use this method of continuous improvement both in the enhancement of software systems and in the identification of professional development opportunities for staff, so that our client-partners are able to maximise the benefits of their Ed Tech systems over time.
