Our customers speak:
Paula Davies, Service Desk Manager at Kent County Council, invested in Supportworks in 2008:
"We particularly liked the apparent simplicity of Hornbill's solution. It handles quite complex and powerful processes while making it very easy for the end user. This ease of use, particularly in the management of priority calls and SLAS has, we believe, enabled us to manage our workload better resulting in faster response times to customers."
Fay Heatley, ICT Unit Operations Manager at London Borough of Waltham Forest:
"We have improved our service extensively since using Supportworks. We handle over 500 calls per week, a considerable increase and are now planning to use the tool more extensively to support our move towards ISO 20000. We are confident that we will be able to meet this challenge within IT. With a multi-sourced environment we obviously retain some functions in-house, which by nature are leaner and so performance management is vital. Supportworks is an excellent tool to enable us to manage this and we are seeking to gain benefits from this toolset that have not previously been realised."
