Must-Try Features of DD Tech

By Serena Cappellini on May 20, 2019 2:47:16 PM

What is an ideal help-desk tool?

A tool that sits on top of your PSA and aids in ticket resolution - that is ALL your techs need on a daily basis. They are not using all the features of a PSA, and the distraction just slows them down.

Hence we found a solution: DD Tech, a help-desk tool for Level 1 & 2 techs.

It helps techs resolve tickets faster - whilst fully integrating with your PSA - and doesn’t require any training. Just click to open and start using.

Now, how cool is that?
