Announcing Freshdesk!

11. 01. 18

From February 2018, the Touchstone Helpdesk is moving onto a new, cloud based, dedicated Helpdesk system, FreshDesk. This award winning helpdesk system allows Touchstone to offer a number of major improvements in the customer experience and the functionality available, as well as significant efficiencies in the way your support tickets are managed and monitored.

The new helpdesk will be rolled out to clients over the coming weeks. A handful of clients have already been trialling the system with us and the feedback has been valuable and very positive. This has already proven to be a vast improvement on the previous portal, which had developed over a number of years. Having a built for purpose, Cloud based solution allows the Touchstone Helpdesk team to offer clients so much more, not only from the initial implementation, but also through a phased development of the solution over the coming months.
