Agio Tech makes breakthrough

Agio Technology, the provider of superior managed IT services to the world’s premier hedge funds, this week announced the system-wide implementation of Agio ESP, its comprehensive Enterprise Service Platform. Agio Technology is headquartered in New York City, with operational headquarters in Norman, and offices in Boston, Dallas, San Francisco, Seattle, London, and Hong Kong. Fully automated, Agio ESP ensures Agio engineers can always focus on their clients’ most critical issues and consistently deliver a superior quality end-user experience across all Agio services.

The Agio ESP Dashboard provides clients and Agio engineers with a real- time-view of service processes — they see what we see. With ESP, Agio clients have an “inside” view of the entire ticketing process.

Utilizing a scriptable heuristic algorithm, Agio ESP automatically prioritize cases based on multiple inputs, including but not limited to, issue, case severity, contact or client-specific Service Level Agreements. Not only will Agio ESP provide its clients with a superior user experience today, the important data the platform will present will allow it to provide an even more superior client experience in the days ahead.
