This organization wanted to tackle high ticket volumes in a core packaged system that touched multiple aspects of the business. The main challenge was to address open tickets while simultaneously developing system enhancements to reduce ticket volumes. 4th Source, with an understanding of the business and technology processes, was brought in to complete the project.


Taking a Digital Strong Approach

A managed services team stepped in to examine the cause of high ticket volumes. In addition to handling open tickets, the team developed application enhancements using GAPs to fix root issues and reduce tickets over time.  Of the tickets opened, the team developed production code fixes based on prioritization and delivered on all contractual SLAs.

Project Benefits:

  • Improved governance and communication
  • Performance monitoring
  • Critical processing/batch job monitoring
