This IT Service Desk system intended for the employees of Lithuania Post is based on ITIL (Information technology Infrastructure Library) methodology.
Mr Jokubauskas, manager of Synergy Consulting said “In case of Lithuania Post, we implemented an advanced solution tailored to postal activities that will enable to have a more effective management tool and a possibility to solve IT problems faster. This will enable to service customers faster and improve the quality of service. On the grounds of information received, Lithuania Post’s IT departments and other units will take proper decisions and will identify easier ways to improve quality of service,” Mr Jokubauskas said.
With the new system implemented, the staff of Lithuania Post will receive a centralised IT help. The staff will register IT problems of the platform of one-stop government, and problems will be solved following strictly standardised procedures.

The employees will be able to track problem solving processes and will receive immediate information on their solution.
The head of IT department of Lithuania Post Mr Jastiuginas says that the system implemented will be used not only for problem solving, but also for change planning, time spent accounting, management of specialists, and assignment of daily tasks.
