No matter how organized your institution is, it is often the case that all universities and colleges go through tremendous challenges to maintain the reputation they have gained through years of hard work.

It is an institution’s pride to become a student's dream college and be their goal and vision.

Every college and university go through incessant buzzing of phones, numerous emails and chat queries, signifying how important and major a role does help desk support play in an accessible and trustworthy campus life. EVC Ventures noticed these problems faced by institutions globally and supported Blackbelthelp, a global leader in the Higher Ed space to create the best of all age technologies which can and is transforming the IT Help Desk Industry.
