TSANet India Focus Group

TSANet hosted a workshop on June 8, 2018 at the Cisco facility in Bangalore, India. This was the second face-to-face meeting TSANet held in India about relevant topics on technical support. During this workshop, facilitated by Rainer Zielonka (TSANet) and Srini Natarajan (Cisco), members of the India focus group shared their vision of the future of tech support. The team discussed the importance of customer relationship, the move from hardware to software and services, the impact on technical support from break fix to solution and pro-active support, and the importance of collaboration and the role of TSANet: “ Working together means winning together”.

The agenda:

  • Cisco Technical Support and Future trends
  • TSANet Strategy Update
  • TSANet Admin Training (incl. tips, best practices and metrics)
  • Case Exchange (including Fall release details)
  • Feedback on focus groups
