Our users are now happy knowing they can get the support they need when they need it. Our in-house IT staff is no longer burned out troubleshooting user support calls, and with the help of the IQTrack ticketing software, we can accurately track call volumes and provide detailed reporting.”
The key factors integral to Shipman & Goodwin’s decision to choose Intelliteach included:
• Expertise with legal-specific applications and systems (exceeds 200 applications);
• Intimate knowledge of law firm operations and workflows which are critical to serving legal users;
• Understanding of lawyers’ dependence on technology;
• Focus on keeping the firm’s users up and running and able to deliver timely client service, 24/7, 365;
• Ability to enter all user support calls into one, easy to use, web-based interface and track ticket volumes and user satisfaction.
“Everything Intelliteach does is tailored to address the support needs and requirements of law firm users. This laser focus on legal is viewed as an asset by many of our clients including Shipman & Goodwin and re-assures them that their users will receive the best and most reliable helpdesk support possible,” said Lance Waagner, President and CEO of Intelliteach and former large law firm CIO.
