MetricNet Delivers Presentation on Service Desk Metrics at the 2018 SDI Conference

MCLEAN, Va., March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Rumburg, co-founder and managing partner of MetricNet, and Bruce Duncan, senior manager of customer services at Deloitte UK, presented "From Good to Great! How Deloitte UK Leveraged Metrics for Continuous Improvement in Their Service Desk!" at the Annual Service Desk Institute (SDI) Conference in Birmingham, U.K.

In this presentation, Mr. Rumburg and Mr. Duncan presented a compelling case study that examined how the Deloitte UK service desk leveraged metrics to close performance gaps and dramatically improve performance to become a center of excellence. It illustrated, in detail, how Deloitte UK established performance targets, implemented a scorecard, began working toward an enterprise service desk and drove accountability to go from Good to Great in less than 18 months!

"In 2016, a benchmark of the Deloitte UK service desk revealed a number of performance issues. At the root of many of these challenges was a weak metrics discipline," said Jeff Rumburg, managing partner at MetricNet. "By maturing their metrics, Deloitte UK has dramatically improved service levels, first contact resolution rate and customer satisfaction. Today, Deloitte UK has one of the best performing service desks in the industry, and they now qualify as a center of excellence within Deloitte."

The 2018 SDI conference brought together nearly 1,000 IT service and support professionals from over 20 countries and a multitude of industries. This year marked the 31st annual conference held by SDI.

Mr. Rumburg is the winner of the Ron Muns Lifetime Achievement Award and was named one of the Top 25 Thought Leaders in Technical Support and Service Management for 2016 and 2017. He is co-founder and managing partner of MetricNet LLC, where he is responsible for global strategy, product development and client engagement delivery. As a leading expert in benchmarking and re-engineering, Mr. Rumburg authored a best-selling book on benchmarking and has been retained as a benchmarking expert by such well-known companies as American Express, Hewlett- Packard, General Motors and IBM.
