Almost immediately, Vivantio emerged as the leading contender.
“It was obvious from the start that Vivantio’s service management system was the simplest and easiest to use, yet powerful and feature-rich,” explains Michael Canigilia, technical director for Planet Financial Group. “We didn’t need an over-complicated system with excessive licensing costs and
Vivantio offered the ideal solution to meet our needs and budget.”
Vivantio is flexible and comes as an on-site install or SaaS solution. For ease, speed of set-up and scalability, Planet Financial Group opted for the web based solution.
The Vivantio Service Desk system allows customer tickets to be issued through a portal, ensuring that customers can track their
tickets at any time. There’s no delay and the process is seamless, making for a better customer experience and increasing customer satisfaction.
“The web based system allows instant access for multiple-users,” says Canigilia. “We can access the system anytime, anywhere – something that we were never able to do with our in-house solution. It’s enabled us to increase our productivity, prevent duplication of work and ensure we respond first time to customers.”
“What’s more, our customers can see the progress of their tickets in real-time so they can easily keep track of their progress. Customers are happy, which makes us happy.”
Vivantio Service Desk is also scalable and fully customisable, adapting and growing as business needs change.
“As we grow we can add the functionality that we need,” Canigilia confirms. “In particular, the opportunity to bring in Service Level Agreements (SLAs) is important to us as it will ensure faster response times and even greater efficiency.”
Set up, training and support also come as standard with Vivantio, ensuring that the transition to the new system is trouble-free and that the service management team get up to speed as quickly as possible, minimising down-time.
“The demos and training sessions have been invaluable,” says Canigilia. “After a short series of training sessions, we were up and running within one day. The system is intuitive and so easy to use.”
“The follow up has been fantastic too. The customer service and after-sales support delivered by the Vivantio team has been excellent. We get the support that we need, just when we need it. The product and service is simply awesome.”
“Quite simply, Vivantio has changed the way we do business,” Canigilia concludes. “We’ve become smarter in the way we work. We’re implementing different strategies to improve performance. We’ve resolved our issues with first contact resolution and the support team works more efficiently. It’s made a huge difference to our business.”
