Scores in user and device views

A score is a higher level indicator obtained by weighing together several different technical factors. Scores were introduced as part of V6.7 to allow you to understand the big picture and define KPIs that can be tracked over time. V6.9 enhances this concept by allowing you to understand the details of a score for a specific user or device. There are several use cases where this functionality is used, the most important one being in the context of your helpdesk.

When using Nexthink as part of the incident management process, this new functionality will allow you to:

  • Save time in L1 support by performing quicker analyses: the red/green indicators enable your team to immediately diagnose common problems.
  • Improve the escalation process and have a more focused L2/L3 support: by requiring that all escalated tickets comply with the L1 checklist you can ensure that key requirements have been met before escalation.
  • Decrease support costs by enabling shift-left: the checklist can enable L1 to resolve incidents that would have previously been escalated.

The benefits are not limited to support use cases, however. These new visualizations are available for any score, for example enabling you to fix compliance and performance problems more easily.

To obtain more information about scores and how to customize them for your environment, please contact your Nexthink Customer Success Services representative.
