Recommendations

The SLA workgroup has made the following recommendations for ctcLink production support.

Centralized Support

A centralized Help Desk needs to be established to provide a single point of contact for incoming requests, to monitor and coordinate requests; provide first level support to relieve pressure on functional staff; work with organizations on ensuring that tier-one troubleshooting has been performed; provide information and reports to clients and functional teams.

Completed on February 10th, 2020 with the creation of the ctcLink Customer Support unit within the Information Technology Division.

Phone Support

Phone support should be available for high criticality items or when access to ticketing system is unavailable. If a technician is unable to answer the call it will be forwarded to a voicemail, where a message can be left. Calls should be returned as soon as possible. All messages left on voice mail should be confirmed for receipt within four business hours.

Email Support

Monitored email support should be available during normal business hours. If messages fall outside of normal business hours it will be addressed the following business day.

Client Priority Field

When creating a ticket in the ServiceDesk the client should have access to a custom dropdown field where they can choose the priority level from their perspective. If it differs from the priority levels in the SLA then context needs to be provided as to why the issue should be prioritized differently.

Currently in testing.
