What does an IT-Support Specialist actually do?
IT-Support Specialists respond to inquiries either by telephone or by digital means, e.g. via a ticket system. Sometimes these may take the form of error messages, or alternatively they may relate to an EMM update, or they may involve questions about individual features of the various EMM platforms. In many cases it may be possible to respond to the queries straight away. Otherwise, the specialists may need to discuss the problem with the internal development team or the manufacturer to try and get to the bottom of it. When a problem arises for the first time, it is recorded, and the relevant documents sent to the customer and colleagues.
Alongside all their support work, IT-Support Specialists also support projects – such as holding customer workshops or preparing roll-outs, for example.
