Great Internal IT Client Service

4 hours


User satisfaction comes from great internal client service. This class is specifically designed for individuals and departments providing services to fellow employees within their company, as opposed to external clients. For example, the sales, marketing, finance and human resources groups are clients of the Information Technology (IT) department because IT provides services to these groups.
