Benicia, CA -- (May 1 ,2012) – Crow Canyon Systems, Inc., announced the release of CCS Service Request 6.0, the latest version of its service request tracking application.  CCS Service Request, used by thousands of organizations worldwide, significantly reduces the time employees spend requesting and tracking internal service requests (IT, HR, Facilities etc.) and increases productivity of service department staff. Version 6.0 includes major new features such as full support for Outlook 2010 64-bit, change control, Service Level Agreements, detailed time tracking, enhanced asset integration, and more.

Based on the award winning CCS HelpDesk and Outlook Help Desk, CCS Service Request leverages an organizations existing Microsoft Exchange, Outlook and Office environment. Employees can request services such as vacation leave (HR), maintenance (facilities), supply requests (Purchasing) or even conference room scheduling (Administration) through a single easy to use Outlook or Web form.    Based on the type of request, CCS Service Request links to existing policies, documents and forms and attach them to the request ticket. Once submitted the service request ticket is routed to the relevant department where the request can assigned, fulfilled and tracked. The application supports approvals, time tracking and service level reporting.  At the completion of the request process, the employee can asked to fill out a survey to rate level of service.

Organization-wide business process automation (BPM) with departmental flexibility and control.

CCS Service Request provides a simple yet flexible and powerful way to automate everyday workflows across the entire organization, while being configurable and managed at the departmental level. Each department can setup their processes, and routing while providing a simple easy to use request management tool for all employees.

The application supports business processes from as simple as fixing a light bulb (Facilities) through multi-department requests (such as New Hires) that require approvals and serial processing. With version 6.0, 10 new Quick Start Department templates are available to speed configuration.
