IT Service Desk HR/Finance Support
In the past, Business Affairs Training and Development as well as other back-office resources were utilized for this purpose. They will continue to service a vital role however the integration and complexity of the UT Share applications, coupled with the Shared Services deployment model, necessitate a more streamlined approach to addressing questions and issues posed by the UT-Arlington's administrative community. The Help Desk will serve as frontline support after the UTShare HR/Finance implementation date.
The Help Desk provides the following services:
- Input of IT requests
- Resolutions on common issues (account management, basic support, permission evaluation, training materials, etc.)
- Escalation of IT requests (second tier Business Affairs Training and Developemnt staff reviews all escalated tickets to ensure they have all required information and escalate to appropriate team or back-end support)
