Request Management

Across any enterprise each department has a need to manage inbound requests from internal and/or external customers. Traditionally requests are submitted in may forms – in person, by phone, or via email.  This leaves the team with the extra, repetitive task of logging all the requests somewhere and then working to make sure that each is assigned to the correct bucket and addressed in a timely manner.  Despite best efforts, requests will get lost in the shuffle or will not get the appropriate priority treatment which in turn leads to unsatisfied customers and a team that is not performing to its full potential. Sound familiar?
