HEAT Answer Wizard Transforms Help Desk Data Into Strategic Information
HEAT Answer Wizard is a tool that allows the user to easily choose from hundreds of management reports in a "question-tree" environment. The user can see which reports are available, not only to answer the present question, but also to related questions that the user should be asking. This "consultant in a box" approach coaches managers into asking the right questions and helps them find the answers to those questions. Reports may answer tactical questions about the status of open calls or about call volume over a period of time. Other reports provide strategically-valuable information such as the major causes for calls to the help desk, or which clients call the help desk most often.
The HEAT Answer Wizard categorizes reports for easy retrieval and modification. By changing the values and combinations of standard report parameters, users can use one report to cover a wide range of reporting needs.
HEAT Answer Wizard also will be included as a standard feature of HEAT 3.6, the 16-bit equivalent version of HEAT 4.0.
HEAT Version 4.0 and HEAT Answer Wizard will be available for shipment in March 1998.
