Greater Efficiencies. Proactive, Actionable Insights.
In the last Online Support & MyService360TM blog post, we discussed new features designed to help you quickly find the information you need to take action. In this post, we’ll be highlighting even more new capabilities that are helping to drive efficiencies for you. The September release continues to modernize your service and support experience; migrating to a new platform to help you proactively take control of your IT environment.
Key Enhancement Areas
Managing Service Requests, Onsite Services & Engaging EMC Customer Service
Create & View SRs – Integration with our new support platform brings a new look for creating Service Requests (SR) and viewing SR details, creating a streamlined, self-help experience. As you create and view SRs, leverage the relevant resources and information that are proactively served-up toyou to prevent duplicate cases.
- Manage Your SRs –MyService360 offers a reimagined way to proactively view and manage your open SRs within ‘Incident Management’. See where your open SRs are occurring across your global install base with the geospatial map, or toggle to a list view using the ‘View By’ buttons in the top left side of the page. Use the new dashboard filters at the bottom of your screen to quickly assess which SRs are awaiting your action or the status on an SR for which you are the primary contact.
- Check What’s ‘Awaiting Your Action’ – For even more actionable insights, ‘Awaiting Your Action’ has been introduced to the ‘Heads-up Display’ of MyService360. Visit this near real-time section to quickly identify items that require your response, such as updating and closing your SRs or scheduling your onsite maintenance activities through a direct Live Chat with Schedule & Account Services.
- Live Chat – The Live Chat function in Online Support also has a new look with a proactive display of related SRs and relevant Knowledgebase articles. Launch a chat session from the Online Support homepage, SR details page or ‘Unscheduled Activities’ view in MyService360, to directly engage a technical support professional with your questions.
- Exporting Your Data – You’ve asked, we’ve listened. As the #1 request from customers, MyService360 now offers additional export capabilities across ‘Incident Management’, ‘Service Requests’ in the ‘Awaiting Your Action’ section, and ‘Onsite Services Overview’ to help you conduct further analysis.
Managing Service Requests On-the-Go with Your Mobile Device
- Stay on Top of SRs – The EMC MOBILE app now has more robust search capabilities, allowing you to easily search for SRs by SR Number, Product ID, or Site ID. When viewing SR Details, you’ll also have visibility into any SRs related to a particular product with the added ability to drill down into the details of those related SRs.
- Personalize Your Views – Enjoy a more seamless personalized EMC MOBILE experience. Filter your SRs using the Custom Product and Site Groups created in Online Support. Product Aliases are also displayed when viewing the details of your SRs.
Note: Current users of the EMC MOBILE app must download the updated version to continue using the support functionality within the app. Users of the legacy EMC Support app are encouraged to migrate to EMC MOBILE as the legacy app will no longer function after the September release.
Managing Sites, Products, and Contacts
- Streamlined Site Administration – Added security enables efficient administration of your company’s sites, products, and contacts. Automatic inheritance allows users to immediately view all entitled sites rather than adding them manually.
- Manage Your Approvals – A simplified, intuitive design offers faster management of approvals for administrators as well as the ability to clearly differentiate between company sites and 3rd party supported sites and products.
- Assign Product Contacts – This release now includes the added flexibility of assigning and maintaining contacts at the product-level.
Reminders & Additional Resources
We know that accurate and current data is critical for a modern and proactive experience – it’s difficult to take proactive action on outdated information. To fully benefit from Online Support and MyService360, be sure your eligible systems are connected with ESRS v3!
