Short Artificial Intelligence (AI)-focused ITSM Webinars with Freshworks
With organizations’ business operations – and even their viability – now inseparable from their IT infrastructure foundations, ITSM and ITOM have become critically important capabilities.

However, the need of the hour is how you can do it faster and more efficiently – in a way that delights end-users.

Service Desk Consolidation Webinar with BeyondTrust (July 2021)
It’s not unusual for organizations, especially those that have grown through mergers and acquisitions, to have multiple service desk tools. Each is used by a different team, in different locations, and perhaps using different service and support practices. But how great is this? First, for employees who receive different service experiences, including needing to use different self-service capabilities. Second, for the organization – not only in terms of the associated costs of running multiple service desk tools but also the inherent inefficiencies of fractured operations and tooling.
Coverage includes how:
- The use of multiple service desk tools is adversely affecting your corporate service and support capabilities
- Service desk consolidation helps, including with digital transformation initiatives
- To create a consolidation vision of “one service desk tool to rule them all.”
