INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev., April 11, 2019 (Newswire.com) – Jeff Rumburg, co-founder and Managing Partner of MetricNet, presented Session 205, ‘Radical Success: Managing Service and Support as a Business’, at the Annual HDI Conference in Orlando, Florida. This marks the 27th consecutive year Mr. Rumburg has been selected as a speaker for the Annual HDI Conference & Expo. In this presentation, Mr. Rumburg offered a value-centric business model for IT Support that focuses on ROI and building a culture of proactivity. It illustrated how Service and Support organizations that operate as a business are able to attract funding, headcount, technology and other resources based upon proven economic value. “Most service and support professionals are familiar with the operational metrics of the industry. KPIs such as cost per ticket, first contact resolution rate, and customer satisfaction are well understood and almost universally applied,” said Rumburg. “Yet even service and support centers that have mastered these metrics and achieved a degree operational success often struggle to gain visibility and credibility within their own enterprises. The all-too-common result is that service and support centers operate at a subsistence level because they are viewed as cost centers.” Those interested in this presentation can find a copy of the slide deck on MetricNet’s website. Mr. Rumburg will also be co-presenting Session 501, ‘Metrics Magic: Ask the Experts’, on Thursday, April 11, 2019.
