Advanced IT Troubleshooting with Automox

Every single day, IT and helpdesk teams are bombarded with a multitude of tickets. Their goal is generally to keep end users happy and the businesses they work for productive.

Typically, this requires a hybrid approach of automation and manual work. Some issues are frequent offenders that can be addressed with automation. Others, however, require real-time investigation and resolution through the end user’s eyes, directly on the device.

Here at Automox, our team of IT warriors is always working the front lines. Like most IT and helpdesk teams, they face a litany of requests like:

  • Addressing network errors or slowness

  • Fixing apps that crash or contribute to slowness

  • Troubleshooting general computer performance or peripheral issues

  • Executing access change requests like adding permissions to a resource

  • Carrying out access provision requests such as setting up new licenses

  • Managing app provision requests like installing an app or tool on a desktop

That’s a lot for one team to cover on a daily basis. But as a business, we’re confident that our endpoints are configured, secured, and operational. Why?

We asked our Manager of IT Operations, David Van Heerden, what the average time to resolve an issue is. He said for most IT teams it takes about 24 hours.

At Automox, we’re happy to report that our IT team resolves all tickets in fewer than eight hours. In large part, we're able to cut down on resolution time because we've consolidated our efforts into a single tool that allows us to automate processes that we had to do manually in the past.

But when a helpdesk team is tasked with highly complex problems with too many ineffective tools, they may find they can’t resolve issues fast enough or are slowed by a plethora of processes that can hold production back.

When we asked other organizations about what prevented them from accomplishing their essential endpoint management tasks in our 2021 State of IT Operations survey, they all had the same answer: One of their primary impediments was tool sprawl.

So, we’re aiming to close that gap – with a single tool for device inventory, IT automation, and remote access. Our goal: Enabling organizations to easily find and fix issues because of the power of tools they use, not in spite of them.
