In order to ensure software works as intended and delivers optimal performance, it undergoes a series of tests to isolate any issues.
An IT incident or an application issue is an error or negative event that takes place during the testing phase and indicates a fault that needs to be rectified.
If a function or part of a programme is meant to achieve a certain result, if the intended or expected result does not occur and an error message is returned instead, this is deemed an incident.
Applications errors are expensive. They frustrate users and place a significant burden on them and your Service Desk personnel as they try to reproduce and document the problem.
With incident management tools, companies can log the incidents so that these can be accurately reported, tracked and resolved directly from the computer to the support desk.
With this process in place, issues can be addressed quickly and interruptions to service can be rectified promptly.
Therefore, having an effective incident management process in place is an incredibly important priority for companies that want to respond rapidly and critically to issues that can interfere with normal operating status.
TrackPath is a unique incident data collection and diagnostic tool designed to increase incident management efficiency.
This software acts as a “black box flight recorder” of sorts for computers, providing businesses with a low cost, high value effective incident capture solution.
TrackPath eliminates the need for manual reporting, as it keeps track of an application’s usage and it will automatically log any issues. In the event of service interruption or failure, this log can be instantly accessed to enable service desk respondents to easily locate the issue.
This speedy and accurate direct communication betters response times and improves user experience in the process, which makes this system especially ideal for larger companies with multiple devices in use that are relying on a single central help desk for support.
Users no longer have to recall the steps that caused the issue, but instead with the click of a mouse, they can send through a fully documented audit trail from which the operator can work.
This not only saves time, but also provides customer support with the most accurate reporting possible for swift, viable incident.
While simple in concept, the beauty of TrackPath lies in its lightweight implementation and on any modern PCs, its presence on memory and processor load is almost impossible to detect.
