SolarWinds Service Desk Chat, allows employees to directly engage with internal service providers to quickly get the resolutions or resources they need to stay productive. SolarWinds Service Desk has also released an upgraded mobile app experience for service desk agents to provide support on the go.

Built directly into the service desk, Chat aligns with existing service management processes, ensuring all communication is logged into the service records. By facilitating better real-time communications between employees and internal service providers, both parties have the active attention of each other, allowing issues to be resolved more rapidly and efficiently.
