Who needs it
It is a program needed by large sectors that accommodate a large number of employees.
The importance of the university's technical support program
Due to the great acceleration in the growth of the University of Tabuk and the increase in the number of academics and employees, it was imposed on those in charge of information technology to search for a program that would facilitate the employees to communicate with the administration to submit requests for technical support, as the program was implemented since the beginning of the month of Shawwal, 1432 AH, and the application was made through it for more than (4000) requests in various departments to date.
Before the technical support program was available, the requests were submitted in a written manner, and due to the large influx of requests, it became difficult to deal with and schedule them, in addition to the incomplete data for the service applicant that the employee needed to complete the request, as we set mandatory fields for the data we need
