National Bank of Greece implements BMC Remedy Service Desk 7.1 to support growth

12 May 2008

ATHENS, May 12, 2008 — The National Bank of Greece (NBG) appointed Relational to implement a service desk and incident and problem management system in order to support the bank’s growing requirements.

BMC Remedy Service Desk version 7.1 was found to be the best fit. Whether implemented as a stand-alone solution or as part of the integrated BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite, this robust, ITIL-based solution cost-effectively reduced the number of incidents handled, improved resolution times, and now prevents future incidents from occurring — all while improving IT staff efficiency.

Remedy now provides a common database for the NBG Group (Greece and the Balkans). The bank has access to immediate and accurate reporting for the monitoring of all service desk functions. Its data is structured and the levels of internal support offered exceed expectations.

Through implementing and using Remedy, NBG has increased value through complete, integrated IT solutions from a single vendor and delivers a friction-free, intuitive user experience. It can now ensure rapid, risk-free service delivery with built-in best practices in a proven platform while also anticipating IT operational needs from data-driven insights.

Dashboards and reports provide real-time performance statistics to understand service trends and provide better business support. Easy-to-learn, consumer-style tools also allow teams to engage, collaborate, and expand their knowledge base to solve issues faster.

Easier to use, faster to deploy, and packed with the latest innovations in service management, Remedy IT Service Management extends support beyond traditional ITSM with a highly extensible platform that integrates seamlessly with a greater IT operations management environment. It automates, analyzes and configures every business service to minimize risk in the NBG working environment.
