LANDESK Service Desk 7.7

We are excited to announce the major release of LANDESK® Service Desk—version 7.7. This is the latest release of Service Desk, strengthening the LANDESK portfolio of User-Oriented IT solutions. Version 7.7 promotes IT engagement to improve end user customer satisfaction and maximize user productivity.

In the age of IT consumerization, it’s too easy for “Shadow IT” to creep in when end-users find their own IT solutions elsewhere. The advances in Service Desk 7.7 enable end-users to once again engage with IT in the way they want to, reducing the possibility of Shadow IT. From the service desk standpoint, version 7.7 boosts the service desk’s ability to engage with its end users, other IT teams, and the business.
