As a fully web based system, NetSupport DNA Helpdesk requires no software pre-installation and provides an import wizard to allow for simple importing of user details from other external systems.


As every organization is unique, possessing different requirements, DNA Helpdesk allows for the customization of many key features within the solution. From operator functionality to the creation of specific data entry fields, DNA Helpdesk can be tailored to fit seamlessly into your organization.


Use the real time corporate status reports to gauge the effectiveness of how support requests are being managed and maintained. Encouraging the improved productivity of the help desk is only half the challenge. Educating your users to reduce the frequency of future support requests is equally important. With DNA Helpdesk, users are able to search for answers before logging a support request and check and review on-line the status of their Help Desk ticket.


Knowing what hardware and software is installed on your user's PC will help to reduce call escalation whilst increasing problem resolution. By integrating a 3rd party inventory solution - such as NetSupport DNA - you can use DNA Helpdesk to obtain a full inventory for each of your users' systems, together with an ongoing history by user for all previous support requests. DNA Helpdesk empowers your help desk operators, giving them the information needed to deal with more requests in less time.


Because no two organizations are the same and therefore rely on different critical systems to remain competitive and efficient, DNA Helpdesk allows for automatic priority assignment of ticket types. For example, a trouble ticket relating to "Server Failure" can be automatically assigned "Urgent Priority" status and allocated to the "Server" specialist within the Help Desk team.


DNA Helpdesk has been developed in accordance with the ITIL® Service Desk function described in OGC's ITIL® Service Support book.
