ConnectWise Solutions That Help Improve Business Collaboration and Communication

If you are running an MSP, the Professional Service Automation (PSA) software can help connect your business. It focuses on creating a single data layer to which all your teams can refer.
Its key features include help desk automation, cloud billing services, time tracking, sales and marketing, reporting, and project management.

Using the PSA cloud portal, you can improve how customers interact with your business.
2. Remote Control
Understanding issues from a ticket description and images alone cannot always be possible. In such cases, the tech agents will have to troubleshoot the problem on user devices. With teams across geographies, remote access provides a secure way for agents to view user devices.
ConnectWise Control is a remote access software that lets agents establish direct, reliable, secure connections to user desktops and mobiles. The software is compatible with Windows, Mac, Unix, and Linux systems. It is also compatible with most major browsers.
The solution comes with security features like AES-256 encryption and 2-factor authentication. In addition, it can be customized at the most granular levels to ensure authorized access.
With the premium version, your tech team can inspect hardware or on-site issues through the user’s mobile camera.
A secure way of remote control improves communication between service agents and customers and leads to lower resolution times.
3. IT Documentation
Without a centralized IT documentation process your team may be uninformed or collaboration can become challenging. Your help desk team will not be able to provide consistent issue resolution and customer experience.
ConnectWise offers ITBoost, an intuitive IT software specializing in consolidating documentation tools. You can create a centralized document library with documentation, business insights, and customer data.
You can build consistent knowledge-based articles with customizable templates on offer. The knowledge base in return can help agents provide consistent and quality customer experience.

4. Help Desk Services
Your help desk team is the communication link between your business and customers. It is not only about resolving issues but also about how you answer queries and provide a personalized experience.
According to a Gartner report, if customers receive value during a service experience, they are 82% more likely to repurchase. And there is a 97% probability of customers sharing positive feedback with others.
ConnectWise help desk services include features like level 1 and 2 support with 24/7/365 days availability. The agents will be certified and trained to handle tech issues, for example, network security or endpoint issues. With immediate access to technical expertise, you can scale your business without compromising service quality.
