About The SDI/MetricNet Partnership
MetricNet, LLC and The Service Desk Institute (SDI) have partnered to increase the availability and accessibility of a number of tools that service desk professionals can use to measure, manage, and improve performance right away.
Through this partnership, MetricNet will offer a self-assessment version of SDI’s Global Best Practices Standard in all of its Service Desk Peer Group Benchmarks. Further, SDI members will be given access to MetricNet’s full suite of Service Desk calculators and scorecards as part of their annual membership fee, and have access to a number of MetricNet’s benchmarking data packs.

This new strategic partnership expands upon an existing relationship whereby SDI and MetricNet combined forces in 2018 to offer the most comprehensive service desk benchmark in the industry.
