Service Request Status / Escalation

The Service Desk professionals should be keeping you updated throughout the lifecycle of your request.  If you need to follow up on the status of an existing service request the process is to:

  • Call the Service Desk – 401-619-5362 or Ext 5362

  • State that you are requesting an update or status on an existing service request

  • Provide customer name, contact details and the existing ticket number if known

  • A Service Desk professional will review the ticket and ticket history and supply a current update

  • If the resource assigned to the ticket is currently available, your call will be transferred to assist in resolving your request

  • If the resource assigned to the ticket is currently unavailable, the Service Desk professional will attempt to assist you, otherwise, will document your status request in the ticket and notify the assigned resource to follow up

  • If the ticket was forwarded to one of the onsite technicians for resolution, our helpdesk team will coordinate with the onsite staff to get you an update.
