LANDesk implements Service Desk to help CICA spend more time helping victims
London, UK 13th December 2013: LANDesk Software, a global leader in integrated systems lifecycle management, endpoint security, enterprise mobility, asset management and IT service management, today announced that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Authority (CICA), the organisation that pays compensation claims to innocent victims of violent crime, has implemented LANDesk Service Desk. With LANDesk Service Desk, CICA's current IT operations will be transformed by empowering CICA employees to log their own issues; thereby reducing time spent calling the IT department and creating more time dedicated to helping victims of violent crime. This implementation will support CICA's aim to quickly provide service to suffering victims.
"Previous IT service desk solutions did not allow us to effectively support our wider business objectives, such as reducing cost and maintaining high customer service levels," says Louise Day, Head of IT at CICA. "IT was restricted by logging problems, as the old system was slow and inconvenient. Using LANDesk Service Desk enables CICA to free up user time, which was previously spent calling IT, to spend on victim support. In addition this also helps us understand more about the IT issues that cost the business time and money. On average we have around 1,500 calls per month, and with Service Desk we can now dig deeper into why these issues are happening, allowing us to be more proactive in our approach to managing IT."
LANDesk Service Desk gives employees/end users the ability to log and monitor the progress of their own incidents at anytime from anywhere. Since the implementation went live in August, the IT department has seen many benefits including time savings, effective monitoring of issues, and back-up functionality—all of which previously didn't exist. With more independent users, the number of calls and emails the IT department has seen in the last three months has been dramatically reduced.
"The nature of CICA's business means that users need to be able to function effectively throughout their day; otherwise, callers aren't receiving the quality of service they deserve," says Nigel Seddon, Regional Director Northern Europe, LANDesk. "Service Desk empowers users and cuts out admin tasks for the IT department so that they can focus on more proactive and strategic activities."
"IT is the backbone of business efficiency and an effective service desk is the gateway to achieving a more productive, cost-efficient environment," states Day. "The comprehensive service management solution from LANDesk is crucial to enable us to manage IT effectively. It's bridging the gap between end-users and IT. This has given CICA both a short term fix in wasted administrative time and visibility into IT strategy issues."

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

In the 21st century, security on the Internet has become one of the most important issues. We hear more and more about cyber-attacks on the websites of large corporations, banks and even small businesses. When online we’re concerned not only for our own safety but also our privacy. We have to know that hackers usually start their preparation by investigating the private information of admins – the habits, interests, visited websites and so on. On the other hand, our own security is in danger bec...
