IT Helpdesk

IT related problems and requests can be submitted for review using the ACG online Help Desk.  The ACG SysAid Help Desk software provides an automated way of handling user service requests in a faster and more efficient manner. By automating requests, the ACG Help Desk assists the ACG Community to handle issues as quickly and efficiently as possible by providing the tools needed for better IT problem solving.

Through an easy-to-use and friendly web interface, every IT problem is correctly logged, assigned and actioned within a dedicated tracking system, instead of being misplaced in paper-work, or verbally “handed” around the office. Additionally, ACG community members benefit from a communication loop via the automated email correspondence the ACG Help Desk system provides. Personal troubleshooting history is recorded for future reference so that trends and trouble areas can be quickly identified and addressed.
