Welcome to the Parent Helpdesk,
As you may know, Edison Public Schools has invested in the creation of a new Parent Helpdesk and Support Solution. This decision is explicitly designed to improve our responsiveness to issues you report and continuously improve our service levels and our customers satisfaction.
Benefits of the Parent Helpdesk
The helpdesk now enables us, and you, to track every incident you report to us.
We will now have both a holistic and granular understanding of the volume of your inquiries, suggestions and complaints, as well as the appropriate content and classification of each. This data helps us prioritize our efforts to better meet the needs of our parents.
Every call, email or web contact is ticketed and your reported issue is either handled on the spot by our support personnel or escalated, as needed to the appropriate department. When your issue needs to be escalated, we make every effort to ensure it is properly vetted, prioritized and sent to the right member of our team who can help you.
Our Parent Helpdesk is designed for quality. We want to make sure that none of your issues get lost in the shuffle, that you receive timely updates on our progress either via our helpdesk solution, email or phone and that your issues are addressed and resolved as quickly and accurately as possible.
Measuring Our Quality Improvement
We are committed to continuously improving your satisfaction with our customer service and support.
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to use our application and get help when you need it. We will continually:
- Make sure you have a good understanding of the parent helpdesk and support solution by posting instructions and ‘how to’ videos so you better understand how to use the application and what to expect the from us.
- Take advantage of our website and online support site to easily get answers yourself for many of your commonly asked questions.
- Evaluate the access our customers need and expand our helpdesk support to cover additional departments.
- Continually monitor and review analytics in an effort to provide more efficient support.
With this announcement, we are proud to launch our new parent helpdesk and support solution addressing your Enrollment, Technology and Transportations requests; we will continue to add additional departments on a continual basis.
