IT Outage

Image_05.jpg Why Communicating IT Outages Is Important

The importance of communicating IT outages

Your company relies on your IT infrastructure in order to carry out its work. When systems go down this has an impact on all employees. When such an event happens, your IT help desk staff can spend a lot of time, inefficiently fielding calls about the issue over and over again.

Free up your help desk staff by using DeskAlerts to communicate quickly and easily when you have an outage – whether it is scheduled or unforeseen.


Problems associated with communicating IT outages

Sometimes outages are scheduled and you can communicate these in advance. Other times they arise because of unforeseen issues. Constant interruptions to your IT helpdesk staff can add delays to the time it takes to solve the problem and restore the systems.

Communicating about outages can help your employees to manage their time better and prioritize other tasks that don’t rely on the affected systems.
