Quality Assurance

In April 2016 the Help Desk implemented the QA service area as the centralized point of service and repair on all computer related problems. In addition, the helpdesk implemented a new asset tracking system by ASAP to track and give accurate account of each asset that is provided to our staff, faculty and students. All service requests are submitted through our ticketing system software FreshService, which may come to the Help Desk via phone, e-mail, or personal visits.
