Family Fund Business Services’ (FFBS) former system was limited in both its features and functionality. FFBS were looking for better reporting functionality and a smoother, faster user interface for their agents to use for their daily workflows.
They also had a requirement for an in-built CRM (Customer Relationship Module) that could easily run alongside their service desk. The advantage of Halo Service Desk was that these two modules integrate seamlessly and allow agents from all teams to gain visibility of what is happening across the board.
There was also a need to centralise their systems and business processes while retaining the ability work independently from one another, which is where the Halo Service Desk’s teams functionality came in.
Integrations with multiple systems has created much-needed visibility, alongside the ability to measure operations and shorten restoration times.
Family Fund Group utilise Halo Service Desk’s core modules for both their internal IT team and their FFBS team: the service desk ticketing suite, the CRM module and the reporting suite. Having multiple teams working within the same application is more cost effective from a subscription perspective and makes it easier for cross-team collaboration. Being able to give agents specific permissions to view different team activity has been crucial and has increased inter-departmental communication and accountability.
There have been noticeable savings due to the centralisation of business processes through Halo. These include general time savings due it all being in one system as now email communications are not in multiple email inboxes. Account Managers now have visibility of all of their clients’ service desk tickets and can easily view them through the CRM records or via the ticketing module itself. In general, the User Interface is faster and smoother and over time the impact of this streamlining will be reflected in further time savings.
