Teleopti AB improves their SDI certification scores

In June, 2012, Maureen Lundgren-Gomes, Head of Service Desk and Training at Teleopti and the rest of the Teleopti Service Desk Team along with Miska Suves, COO, successfully completed the second follow-up SDI Surveillance in order to ensure that we deliver sustainable service desk excellence. 

The 3 star certification is the level of excellence and maturity that signifies customer led service and support and it is well earned. Teleopti has not only managed to stay on last year’s high level; they have improved in all 9 areas and the average score was 3,62 (scale 1-4).

These stars can not be fixed with short notice and by quick fixes; they are a result of persistent and professional work.

“Keeping the 3 Star Service Desk Certification and increasing the scores is the result of a company culture that the customer always comes first and of dedicated and structured work to define, refine and document roles, responsibilities and processes. These processes are primarily in Teleopti Service Desk, but also in other functions within the company, including partner relations. Dedicated staff was the success factor in the change process.” says Maureen Lundgren Gomes.

The SDI’s SDC audit evaluates service desk operations against an internationally accepted global standard for best practice, providing companies with a benchmark to form a baseline for service improvements. Based around ITIL and ITSM frameworks, the certification evaluates companies in the following areas: incident and problem resolution; change and release management; service level management; availability and capacity management; configuration management; business continuity and financial management; knowledge management and customer relationship management.
