Service desk operator Makhymo, Ugo Pelizzari
We reached out to our partners to discover how remote visual support is assisting companies providing support services to customers. Our goal to explore the types of problems AIRe Link helps them resolve. We wanted to find out how daily operations had changed as a result of remote visual support. Here’s what service desk operator Ugo Pellizzari had to say:

What are your impressions of AIRe Link?
We first introduced the use of AIRe Link in early 2020. In the beginning, we were skeptical in the use of a tool for our often-delicate interventions. It has proven to be a fundamental solution that optimizes the way in which assistance is provided. Bringing unexpected benefits in addition to the obvious. AIRe Link allows clear cost savings in the majority of minor problems. In fact, most of the expenses for these interventions would be related to travel and time lost in the car.
Can you share some of the unexpected benefits you experienced?
We noticed that in 90% of support cases the customer is happier when a resolution is found for their problem remotely because the fix arrives faster. The intelligent and effective tool was seen in customers’ eyes as professional which helps to build better relationships. We also noticed customer involvement often facilitated involuntary learning processes in which the user understood how to undertake maintenance tasks.
Our customers are becoming more autonomous in resolving issues allowing us to reduce support requests in the future. In addition, as we resolve issues faster, customers see business continuity benefits from much shorter interruptions, having business operations running faster, allowing for a greater focus on other elements of their business.
How has AIRe Link impacted your customers?
AIRe Link allows us to offer a professional service to our customers who require help with various printing system problems. Thanks to the simplicity of the tool, we are able to support them remotely in identifying and resolving the problem.As we receive the call, the ticket is opened and in 85% of cases, the problem can be solved remotely thanks to AIRe Link.
Often the problem is minor, and the intervention does not last long. In many cases, the user actively participates and understands what the solution can be. So now, when in the future they face the same problem, they intervene independently.
Has AIRe Link improved your support teams efficiency?
Even in the case of a problem that necessarily requires on-site intervention, the use of AIRe Link allows us to undertake very important diagnoses so engineers arrive at the customer site with clear ideas of a “solution already in mind”. In this way, the intervention takes place more efficiently and usually in less time.
We are talking about a tool as a service of companies and as such must be managed by a competent technician with a good level of experience. Every intervention can be managed effectively, also relying on the collaboration of the user who trusts us to be guided.
