Helpdesk Support

Many of Paperclip’s clients supply products that benefit from helpdesk support: computers, white goods, power tools…and more.

Paperclip can act as your helpdesk. We log you client’s call, take details of the problem, prioritise. In some cases our clients train us to provide basic Level One support. By eliminating simple problems and false alarms, Paperclip allows you to focus on the urgent calls: the ones on which your reputation is built.

  • Customer receives immediate support
  • Resolution of simple problems
  • Identification of ‘false alarms’
  • Escalation of urgent calls
