FrontRange HEAT Replaced With Giva - IT Service Desk

Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2012

Giva® today announced a significant milestone in surpassing FrontRange Solutions HEAT® head-to-head in the competitive IT service desk market. Giva benefits organizations with a strong focus on increasing first contact resolution, improving customer satisfaction, decreasing call volume with root cause analysis and exceeding service level agreements (SLAs). Giva's visual reporting tools make identifying trends and patterns easier and quicker and with less time building, running, sharing and reviewing reports. Based on word of mouth comparisons from customers that have utilized both service management packages, Giva's cloud computing SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) solution has moved to a leadership role for IT service management for law firms, healthcare institutions and other high visibility professional firms.

For example, Sante Health System, which provides IT technical support to physicians and staff across 16 geographically dispersed sites used FrontRange HEAT for many years before switching to Giva. Their reported results included a 40% increase in the productivity of IT personnel traveling between sites, a 45% increase in the number of calls logged, and a 50% increase in productivity using custom forms, among other significant improvements.

"The Giva dashboard has made me 80% more productive as compared to when I was using FrontRange HEAT," said Juan Carlo Muro, IT Director, Sante Health System. "The Giva reporting module is more comprehensive and an order of magnitude easier to use when compared with FrontRange HEAT reporting. As a result of productivity increases, we have also experienced a 60% increase in meeting our internal resolve-time service level agreements." [Click to download the case study.]
