Build and implement a successful USD

A USD is the central point of contact between a service provider and users for everyday activities, and within an organisation for all requests for and enquiries about the services provided to customers, both internal and external.

The USD is a concept of service delivery and resolution through different channels (Internet, post , intranet, phone, email, physical counter). It also covers account management and its focus on customer relationships at different levels in the organisation.

The Universal Service Desk (USD) – Implementing, controlling and improving service delivery explains what a USD is, why it is valuable to an organisation, and how to build and implement one. This practical guide gives advice about:

  • The use of software tools;
  • Service sites;
  • Self-service;
  • Call centre functionality;
  • Account management;
  • Processes between the USD and back office;
  • Quality management;
  • Competence management;
  • Capabilities; and
  • The service catalogue.

It also discusses the evolution of the USD as part of integrated workplace management.

The book provides the tools and insight to further develop and professionalise the USD within your organisation. It is ideal for those working in service management and the service desk industry, from managers to employees, and can also be used by students to understand all the components that relate to a USD.
