We found that a lot of students actually enjoy helping themselves, when it comes to support. They are the ones in control. But if they need extra help, we are always there.

Our customizable self-service Help Center and Knowledgebase means your students and staff get better service and your agents become more productive. Deskpro includes a sophisticated content authoring and publishing suite, so you can effortlessly create and manage a self-service Help Center that lets your students, staff and faculty help themselves.

Students and staff can refer to the Knowledgebase for answers to common problems, whenever it suits them and without having to wait for an agent's help.

Ticket Deflection

Encourage self-service by automatically suggesting articles aligned to ticket issues.

Instant Search

Staff and students can find articles in the Knowledgebase - quickly resolving their own queries.

Deskpro has worked out tremendously for us at NMIT and I regularly find myself recommending Deskpro to others.

Your helpdesk, your way

Sometimes you need full control over your helpdesk software and all of your student and staff data. That's why we leave the choice between On-Premise or Cloud solution down to you. If you have specific needs over hardware, data and processes, Deskpro On-Premise gives you the freedom to set things up exactly how you like.

Unlike other leading helpdesk solutions, Deskpro can either be deployed on your own server infrastructure or as a fully hosted Cloud service on industry leading data centers, AWS. We're confident you know what's best for your organization.

Compare Cloud vs. On-Premise

You're in Charge

Deskpro On-Premise means you're in charge of your data backup policy- with complete control over access.

Host Anywhere

Host your helpdesk on any particular domain or subdomain of your choice with On-Premise.

Flexible Configuration

Deskpro On-Premise can be hosted on multiple servers for performance scalability and availability.

Firewall Friendly

Deskpro can work behind your firewall; allowing access to customers who log in using your secure network.

We talk to our peers regularly in higher education. Without question we would recommend Deskpro to other universities. We've found a sweet spot that really drives customer service over building metrics.

Helpdesk security 101

Security is a top priority for almost any organization, but even more so when you're responsible for handling mountains of sensitive student data. This means you need to invest in software that's as secure as it is functional.

Deskpro scores nothing but straight A's when it comes to security. Our Cloud servers operate with bank-level security technology, and can be hosted in either US, UK or EU (+ 16 other options available on Enterprise plan). If your requirements or preferences ever change, Deskpro allows you to easily switch between deployment options.

Guaranteed uptime

Because we take our security seriously, Deskpro can guarantee over 99.9% uptime.

All bases covered

Deployment and maintenance of our servers is automated. Third-party protection minimizes security risks.

Maximum control

Define password policies, or restrict logins from untrusted IP addresses.

Safe hands

Our data centers are regularly audited to meet the SSAE16 SOC 1 Type I standard for physical security.

Deskpro worked with us on the extra support contract and went to great lengths to make us comfortable during the sales process, and that makes a huge difference to our confidence using the product across the whole University.
