Service Management

Incident Management

UTech has implemented an Incident Management model that pulls from industry-standard methodologies and has been customized for our specific IT environment. Many of the processes and results achieved at CWRU compare favorably to other IT organizations across the country and are considered to be cutting-edge within the sector of Higher Education. Incident Management encompasses our IT Service Desk, UTech resolver teams, ticket tracking, customer satisfaction surveys, and the metrics that help support UTech's data-driven approach to providing the best IT experience possible for the CWRU community.
