Project Purpose

Texas A&M University is currently engaging with the university community to improve and strengthen the service delivery model through redefined processes, elevated expectations and a single-entry point platform to better serve faculty, staff and students seeking technology-related support. 

Powered by TeamDynamix (TDX), these efforts align with the division-wide initiative to transform the customer experience, bringing improved interactions and streamlined service delivery.  

To foster service excellence, this project will implement a new IT ticketing tool enabling high quality and consistent customer service across the entire university. Through unified processes, campus members will be able to find answers to questions, request services and get service help for problems. Integrated processes and leading technology will empower a shift from reactive to more proactive support, enhancing help desks to transition IT service desks delivering consistent, transparent, intuitive and dynamic customer experiences, and access to subject matter experts on first contact. 

Through TeamDynamix, the campus community will experience increased levels of support and decreased response times to requests for assistance, including classroom technology support, general computing needs and other technology-related services provided. 


Implementation of the new ticketing solution will utilize a customer-centric approach to ensure that the campus member’s current needs are addressed while remaining adaptable to changing environments. 

Subsequent projects will include additional university partners and divisions that have expressed interest in utilizing TeamDynamix as the ticketing system for their business processes.
