Overflow IT Help Desk Support Agent Reaching for Headset

Overflow IT Help Desk Solutions ensure you don’t miss the opportunity to resolve an IT issue vital to your business operations.

Overflow IT Help Desk agents answer on your behalf and act as an extension of your in-house IT service desk operations to offer immediate, expert technical support.

GDC understands that the demands of running a business can often leave little time for achieving seamless in-house IT support. Whether it is questions resulting from a new software roll-out or your environment is simply unpredictable, IT departments can experience huge swings in the volume of support calls they receive from end-users. If you employ enough internal IT professionals to handle the average call volume, you are simultaneously understaffed for the peaks and overstaffed for the valleys. However, by taking advantage of our Overflow IT Help Desk you no longer have to worry about phones ringing off the hook or calls going unanswered.

We can provide 24/7 support, so we are available before, during, and after business hours for your end-users that need IT support as they rush to meet a deadline. We work as an extension of your internal IT team and serve as a backstop during periods of high call volume. The overflow IT support model reduces or eliminates long hold times. Instead of forcing end-users to wait, excess calls are routed to certified agents to help resolve issues quickly and efficiency as a part of your team. Our support leads to faster service and increases end-user appreciation of your IT department.
