An SLA is a contract between a service provider and a customer, outlining responsibilities, expectations, penalties, and metrics. It sets expectations, provides legal protection, and improves customer experience. There are three types of SLAs and key components include service agreements, service management, penalties, customer support, security, privacy, pricing, and billing. Customer testimonials are essential for building trust and can be gathered through online forms, email newsletters, and social media.
Service level agreements (SLAs) can improve the efficiency of your help desk by specifying targets your agents have to meet.
