Lenovo shines bright as an Australian Rising Star in ISG Provider Lens™ Future of Work Services

Lenovo’s innovative digital workforce solutions and managed workplace services are taking the Australian market by storm. Having just rolled out these offerings in May, Lenovo received a Rising Star designation from ISG in both Managed Workplace Services – End-user Technology and Digital Service Desk and Workplace Support Services amongst the nation’s leading managed service providers. 

As the only Rising Star recipient in these categories, Lenovo stood out for its formidable portfolio and local market expertise. In the next 12-24 months, Lenovo is expected to move into the Leader quadrant as we continue to make a strong impact on the market and deliver robust innovation. 

A Rising Star in Managed Workplace Services – End-user Technology

In Australia, there’s an increased focus on flexible digital solutions to empower workers amidst a rapidly changing landscape that includes hybrid work models. To thrive and enhance productivity, companies will need tools and services that simplify collaboration and communication.

Out of the 30 companies evaluated, Lenovo’s Digital Workforce Solutions platform, AI capabilities, and advanced, cloud-enabled managed service desk offering earned it the lone Rising Star accolade. 

ISG noted our ability to tailor workplace solutions to industry, enterprise, role and person, and leverage analytics and AI in the platform. This enables users to drive greater automation, glean deeper insights, and create organic improvements in workforce productivity, engagement and experience.

Another nationwide trend is the shift from just reducing IT costs to empowering internal users with a proactive, personalized omnichannel experience. This has led to increased use of automation, machine learning and contextual AI for support services.

Once again, Lenovo was the exclusive recipient of the Rising Star amongst 30 competitors. ISG cited the ease of use and omnichannel experience of our next-gen service desk built with market-leading technologies; the establishment of the Blockchain Innovation Lab and adoption of blockchain technology in our products; and the advanced workplace support functionalities including proactive prevention of issues, speed, convenience and flexibility in resolution. 

Clients using Lenovo for their digital service desk and workplace support services typically see: 
  • 20% efficiency gains
  • 85% reduced downtime
  • 15% increased revenue retention
