About the service

General technical support refers to a plethora of services for which the IT Service Centre (ITSC) provide assistance to the Griffith community. The ITSC will attempt to help the user solve specific problems with a product or service.  IT Service Centre analysts gather the customer’s information and determine the customer’s issue, analyzing the symptoms.

This includes troubleshooting methods such as remote desktop control, verifying physical layer issues, uninstalling/reinstalling basic software applications, verification of proper hardware and software set up, and assistance with navigating around applications.

If the ITSC analyst cannot resolve the issue they have the skills to log a job to the most appropriate team for resolution.
