| Help Desk Overview|
MayFlower made some of the first Help Desk products in the United States in 1984. Our first customers included Ames department stores, Cumberland Farms stores, TJ Maxx (read about TJ Maxx) , Valvoline Instant Oil Change Centers and Marshalls. Since then, we have moved our help desk to the Lotus Notes environment, adding customers like Avid Technology and CTC communications. Our Help Desk Products provide dependable information-sharing capabilities in the feature-rich environment of Lotus Notes.

This product provides Help Desk Managers with essential Help Desk functionality including call logging, problem identification, escalation, call history, and resolution with an easy-to-use, button-driven interface to ensure accurate information capture and reduce training time. An Examples Lookup Database is provided with the Help Desk Application to ensure that you are in production as soon as possible.
IS departments use our Help Desk product to create Help Desk Requests. These requests are reviewed by Help Desk Staffers and assigned to IS Support Personnel for resolution. This product is useful to IS organizations that assign tickets to IS technicians who solve and close them.
Multi-unit retailers with hundreds of stores use our Help Desk to provide fast and accurate support for the many different types of problems they are called to assist on. Lookup Templates for store information, equipment inventories, key codes and other useful information is provided with the product.
MayFlower Help Desk comes with a reporting tool to let each help desk staffer know what calls are still open each morning. |
We use Microsoft Excel to report call volume and call percentage breakdown. In addition, we mail "Open call reminders" to everyone who has been assigned a call.
