IT service desks have been plagued with high call volumes for years. Research demonstrates that employees overwhelmingly choose phone as their top method for reaching out to IT, which is surprising considering their dissatisfaction with IT phone support. Yet in their consumer lives, most employees have left the idea of calling a phone number for help behind thanks to consumer apps that make it fast and easy to get help online.
