EarthLink Business Launches EarthLink TechCare

"Businesses are under continual pressure to do more with the same budgets, and often lack the resources to keep up with the increased complexity and risk in the IT world. Outsourcing help desk functions has long been seen as a viable target for strategically distributing budget while potentially improving productivity and end user response times," remarked Carl Brooks,  infrastructure and cloud computing analyst, Tier1 Research, a division of 451 Research. "Providers that offer a professional, scalable solution are in a good position to attract customers that are feeling the pinch around IT staffing levels but still want to try and streamline rote support functions."

EarthLink TechCare features a web-based customer portal with access to the historical record of all logged calls and ACD (Automated Call Distribution) statistics that measure performance based on average call length, average speed of answer and number/percentage of calls answered. Current EarthLink service level metrics indicate 70% of calls reach a live person in less than 30 seconds; on average calls reach a live person in less than 60 seconds and 70% of issues are resolved and closed on the first call.

Implemented by EarthLink internally to support the sales organization, EarthLink TechCare provides the real-time support and rapid resolution that has greatly improved productivity and effectiveness.

The IT Services product suite is also available for customer management via the myLink™ customer portal using a centralized IT Services Center dashboard.
