Dentsu’s existing IT service desk was reliant on a third-party organisation who were not contractually incentivised to provide a modern, reliable service. The outsourced model was operating at SLA’s (Service Level Agreement) of 80% – 90% and rarely fluctuated. Although the outsourcers offered a consistent service, there was room for improvement.
The third-party supplier did not show the capability to effectively support the company’s accelerated growth plans. Therefore, Dentsu decided to bring the service desk in-house. This would:
- Give better oversight of their operations.
- Accelerate the ability to take on and manage new, digitally enabled services.
- Reinvigorate their employees’ experience, thereby facilitating innovation, passion and further growth.

The new Genesys Cloud solution has now been in place for nearly two years and has seen a successful in-housing of the IT Service for Dentsu. SLA’s are now above 94% consistently and have been higher. Not only has this helped Dentsu provide a better service, but they are now able to use the data they acquire effectively and carry out further improvement projects to improve the service. In light of the Covid19 situation Dentsu were able to continue providing a high service unaffected due to the flexibility of the solution, in some cases even seeing an improvement in SLA’s.
