Dedicated Service Desk

Dedicated Service Desk is a Turrito managed service which provides you with a skilled and dedicated onsite IT department. You get all the advantages of having an outsourced partner while having onsite support staff that are dedicated only on your support requirements.  
With technology changing faster than ever, an outsourced model gives you flexibility and expertise inside your organisation, backed up by a technology-focused business like ours that has a constant finger on the pulse of what technology is most capable of increasing productivity and efficiency in your business.​  
Internal IT departments, while wholly dedicated to the success of the business that employs them become inevitably “blinkered” by the environment they support and have neither the time, budget, or opportunity to investigate and test competing technology solutions. 
Proactive Support 
  • The Turrito ticketing system is a crucial part of our services as it enables us to monitor and manage our teams’ performance onsite and allows us to provide you with valuable insights into your IT environment. The ROI on this is excellent as trends become visible and budgets can be aligned to real problems.  
  • Turrito monitoring and technical support tools empowers our engineers by reducing diagnostic time making them more efficient at their jobs. We utilise the best software in the world to achieve this and are constantly testing new tools to improve. We automate, script and code as much as we can to ensure that we are proactively addressing issues, to maximize time with users. 
  • A monthly meeting with management and 360-degree reporting, backed up by quarterly reviews with our directors ensure that you are always at the cutting edge of what is possible. We want to create long term partnerships and understanding your business needs at both management and EXCO level will ensure we provide you with future-proofed solutions.

How we partner with you

As this is a dedicated service, we integrate into your organisation in a way which best suits your business needs. We can complement your existing service desk by adding additional resources to your IT team, or we can take over your entire ServiceDesk function and report into the assigned primary IT contact.  

The IT contact can be an IT Manager, CIO, or any Senior Managers in the business. We build a bespoke team based on what your business already has, and where the gaps are. This frees up your senior staff members to focus on more important high-level tasks, such as business strategy, app management or critical service delivery.  

Should you already have an excellent IT team but need the resilience, redundancy and knowledge of an outsourced partnership we can incorporate these staff members into our team. As we are an IT company, this often opens up career opportunities for these employees who may have reached a ceiling in an IT department with limited opportunities.
