Our Mission Statement is to be recognised as an approachable, flexible and responsive Division which understands our customers' needs and is committed to delivering innovative, cost effective services and solutions.
The continuing growth of Computacenter’s Services business has resulted in a number of system integration projects into and out of Computacenter’s Toolsuite as part of a service integration and management solution.
A key goal for the Toolsuite is to deliver a set of tools - under-pinned by ITIL principles - that enable Computacenter to deliver, measure, manage and improve the infrastructure support services that we provide to our customers. As well delivering a toolset rich in functionality, it is imperative that we are able to implement such tools to our customers on a repeatable basis – reducing risk and cost to both us and the customer.
Computacenter has implemented an integration platform that enables Customers to integrate their ticketing system to CC. The integration solution is underpinned using middleware: SAP PI into CC’s call management system - BMC ITSM.
