I work in a very big retail company, specifically in the ecommerce area. I work in Operations Continuity. Most of the time I'm the conection between First Level Support and the internal clients of the company because the tool we use for issues is a "custom made 2005's looked" interfacewith no real time reports, super bad comunication between agent and customer and horrible reporting.
I'm assigned to change this platform for something like Jira Service Desk. My main problem is that there is a contract with this other platform but I know if I do this right I can convince the key stakeholders in order to make this change.
We already use JIRA for developing and second level big issues so the tool is known and most of the people know is a good option.
What are your opinions/advices/recommendations to convince this stakeholders that we need to change to a better tool like this because the hours of issues not solved only because of the tool is money that we are losing.
My advice, try to point out how much money (working time) could be saved when using something new compared to something old. When you present your results to the commercial thinking managers - they will love you.
