atSpoke Helps Strada Education Network Reduce IT Response Time by 42%

atSpoke, the modern workplace operations platform, announced that its customer, Strada Education Network, switched from Zendesk to atSpoke to power its help desk operations across more than 500 users and four affiliates. Since implementation, Strada has reduced IT response time by 42%. Additionally, atSpoke’s Slack integration allows Strada to capture over 75% of service requests which significantly boosts time to resolution and improves visibility and accountability across its entire employee support operations.

Strada Education Network is a social impact organization dedicated to improving lives by forging clearer and more purposeful pathways between education and employment. To do so, the organization leverages a unique combination of research, philanthropy, policymaker engagement, investments, and solutions. Through affiliate organizations, Strada delivers an array of solutions and services to individuals and institutions, supporting students and workers as they pursue education and careers, and helping employers build talent pipelines for the future.

While the company initially used Zendesk, the team quickly realized the need for a more streamlined, easy-to-use solution for their users. Enter atSpoke. According to Jay Swiglo, Corporate Operations Engineering Manager at Strada Education Network, the service desk in atSpoke is so popular and accessible that the technology is being rolled out across multiple departments throughout the company.

“Almost immediately after switching to atSpoke, we saw a rise in tickets — not because our users had more issues, but because we were finally accurately capturing their needs through a true workplace operations platform,” said Swiglo. “The native integration with Slack in particular was a huge deal. atSpoke makes the whole process automatic, surfaces the analytics we need, and saves us an incredible amount of time.”

Why atSpoke?

“It used to take up to several hours to configure a new request form from scratch. With atSpoke, it takes us as little as 20-30 minutes,”
