IL, November 2017: BlackBeltHelp, a leading provider of premium quality help desk products and services in the US higher education industry, is pleased to announce that Benedictine University (BenU) has chosen BlackBeltHelp for after-hours IT Help Desk support. As a part of this association, BlackBeltHelp will provide after-hours (including weekends and holidays) IT Help Desk services to Benedictine University.

BlackBeltHelp’s highly qualified customer service agents will ensure timely resolution of the university’s end-users’ issues, enhancing its student engagement. Benedictine University, through this collaboration aims to achieve their goal of providing round-the-clock assistance to their students.

Under this engagement, BlackBeltHelp will use SalesForce Instance for documentation purposes and resolve BenU’s students’ issues through web forms, via emails, phone calls and over chat. This engagement requires BlackBeltHelp to perform the following functions for Benedictine University to boost its users’ experience:

Hence, we decided to outsource it”, said Miroslava Mejia Krug, VP for Administration and Finance and CFO, Benedictine University. “We picked BlackBeltHelp for their cost effective, innovative solutions. Their clients vouched for them. That made BlackBeltHelp an easy choice for us”, he further added.
