Thirdly, you will actively monitor the status of all assigned tickets and escalate any that are either potentially or actually outside of SLA.
Crucially, you will regularly keep all customers informed on the progress investigations and projected fix time.
Additionally, you will capture all data in a methodical manner, as well as validate the information provided. For instance, you will ensure system checks are made so the customer is advised of any restrictions or required additional information.
