HEAT division selects M-Tech's password management solution for HEAT help desk software

P-Synch Reduces Password-related Call Volumes by at Least 85 Percent

Colorado Springs - Colorado, Calgary - Canada

World leader in service and support solutions for small- to mid-sized organizations, FrontRange HEAT Division Inc., and M-Tech Mercury Information Technology, Inc., the industry leader in password management software, today announced that P-Synch has been selected as a password management solution for award-winning HEAT Help Desk software.

As part of the HEAT Division's Independent Software Vendor (ISV) program, P-Synch was selected as a tool to reduce the volume of password-related calls to the Help Desk. Industry analysts report that up to 40% of all problem calls to a corporate Help Desk are password related. IT departments that use P-Synch have reduced their password-related call volume by at least 85%.

"Self service tools like P-Synch are increasingly important to our customers and are setting new standards for effective service delivery. This is where the support industry is going and we are excited to be a part of it," said Edwin Gear, president of the HEAT Division.

This solution automatically creates new password-related trouble tickets, updates existing tickets, and closes tickets for resolved problems. As a result, IT Help Desk managers receive more effective call and problem management statistics. In addition, end users and support staff work with a single interface for changing, resetting, and synchronizing passwords across all systems and platforms.

"Customers benefit from very quick ROI," said Gideon Shoham, Managing Director at M-Tech. "Eliminating password-related calls to the corporate Help Desk allows support personnel to focus on other more involved support issues," he added.
