Work with the System
Bureaucrat ITSM modules provides two interfaces: one for techs and the other for external users.
Administrators and technical staff use the internal interface.
General settings and request configuration are located under the Configuration menu. This is the task for administrator. He configures types, categories of requests, services, resources, SLA rules, tags and so on.
Provided system has very deep and precise configuration so the request processing happens in a semi-automatic way. For example, request can be automatically moved to the next stage and is assigned to the manager of the person who submitted the request if that person works in a particular department. Or the request can be configured to auto-close after 24 hours at the final stage. To do this, the appropriate trigger must be configured on the route with a specified condition.
Support stuff handle submitted requests. They can change stages, assign responsible persons, schedule events, communicate with users, etc. SLA evaluates the quality of work of employees.
All the incidents and events are logged. This helps to analyze and discover problem zones for the company on the way to continuous improvement. Logs and reports can be seen under the Reports menu.
Website Interface provides the service desk portal for submitting and tracking requests by external users. It is simple and clear to work with.
Requests can be created by clicking Create request and following step by step instructions to classify and submit a request. All created requests can be tracked from here. Users may open each request and view additional information or communicate with techs.
