Project length: 6 months

Goal: Implementation of a service desk solution using Jira Service Management

The Coroplast Group spans a global network with its brands Coroplast Tape, CoroFlex and WeWire.
The aim was to implement a service desk process that would enable all employees to work together in a central tool.
The existing service desk solution was already classified as insufficient in terms of user-friendliness and scalability before it was commissioned, which is why an extension of the existing solution was ruled out.
At the start of the project it was important to act quickly. A deadline of 2 months was set so that a functioning service desk tool could continue to be available.

1. Replacement of the existing tool

  • Scoping of the required licenses and add-ons
  • Translation of the processes in Jira Service Management
    Fastest possible start-up in Germany and end user onboarding

2. Development of the process into a fully-fledged service desk solution

  • Adding processes that could not be covered with the existing solution, such as SAP error messages, user requests and asset management
  • Improvement of user-friendliness by optimizing the service desk processes, adapted to internal workflows

3. Expansion of the solution to additional global locations

  • The locations in North America, China, Mexico, Poland, Tunisia and Moldova were given their own sub-service desk portals, allowing them to customize specific details to suit the unique needs of the location

4. Setting up interfaces to other internally used solutions

  • Interface to Zabbix and PowerAutomate
