Founded on the premise of ‘simplifying businesses with better solutions,’ Focus On Business is a maven committed to delivering the right professional services with an industry leading service management tool— Assyst—implementing the next best functionality that is quicker to adopt and easier to configure.

For non-IT service desks, Assyst can also be viewed as an Enterprise Service Management (ESM) tool, not strictly confined within the boundaries of IT. Catering to requests from diverse and disparate divisions, Assyst facilitates its multi-tenancy features, which can segregate sensitive data such as HR, payroll, and legal requests from the general pool, serving as a ‘one stop shop’ for request services from all facets of the business, enhancing consistency of service deliveries and SLAs.
