New Tech Service Desk to Open March 30!

Posted: 16:06:27, Thursday, Mar 12, 2015   Expiration: 09:07:56, Monday, Sep 14, 2015

On Monday, March 30, the face of IT helpdesk support at Parkland College is going to change. Campus Technologies is pleased to announce the creation of the new Tech Service Desk, a centralized, one-stop shop that will provide timely and effective first-line technology support for students, faculty, and staff.

The current STAR (Student Technical Assistance and Resources) and Campus Technologies Hotline (for faculty and staff) will come together under this new umbrella and will be located in Room A184, with a satellite location in the Parkland Library. (See below for  hours of operation and contact information.)

Now, everyone in the College will have a centralized location to go to for all of their technical needs, including issues related to email, Wi-Fi, Cobra, my.parkland, and Colleague.  There will be one phone number, one website, and one email address, plus extended helpdesk hours and a searchable KnowledgeBase tool. This tool will be a repository for all IT-related information.

The new Tech Service Desk will strive for excellent communication with the College and is a critical part of Parkland’s overall IT service delivery strategy, which was put in place by Chief Information Officer (CIO), Amin Kassem.


OPEN HOUSE: We welcome you to stop by Room A184 on Wednesday, April 8, 2-4 p.m.,  to celebrate the opening of the new Tech Service Desk!
