Reduce Incident load on the Service Desk
To achieve Problem Management, access to information in the form of alerts, patterns and trends is crucial. HelpMaster enables Problem Managers to be the IT organizations detectives by providing a suite of performance analysis reports. User defined filters and a Crystal Reporting engine ensure the right information can be targeted and accessed.
Powerful reports detect potential problems
Flexible data capture categorization and data profiling transforms data into information. HelpMaster allows full user control of this important information layer, in order to match the exact requirements of the organization.
Data -> Information -> Wisdom
