A Service Desk is a ticket management system which allows enterprises to implement strong and effective work-flows for internal and customer-facing support departments. In other words, it helps to communicate with centers that provides a single point of contact (SPOC) between a company and its customers, employees, and business partners. Its purpose is to ensure that users receive appropriate help in a timely manner.
Local Service Desk
Located within or near an enterprise's premises, it caters to the requirements of a small or medium-scale enterprise (SME). It would help address requirements of location-wise entities of an enterprise. However, this service desk would not be enough to handle large volumes of calls or service requests.
Centralized Service Desk
A more cost-effective and efficient solution for ticket management, the centralized service desk helps manage larger volumes of tickets/calls with fewer staff members. An enterprise that maintains local service desks will benefit by merging them into a centralized desk.
Virtual Service Desk
With an Internet connection, a single, centralized Service Desk takes care of all tickets raised from all types of devices and entities in different geographical locations. This is the most commonly used type of service desk among enterprises, corporate, and IT companies.

Some enterprises combine Service Desks located at multiple geographical locations to provide round-the-clock service.
