Chart Key
Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Number of total page views
Number of times compared to another product
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Help Desk Software?

When asked to weigh in on the essential features of help desk software, IT Central Station users pointed to customizable workflow automation, escalation mechanisms, and an internal system for creating tickets for issues that end users are dealing with. Other features like templates, scripts, and decision trees were also useful, along with notifications, reporting, and scheduling. A knowledge base is an important aspect of help desk software for end users to utilize, and mobile applications that afford users the ability to raise tickets on the go are also of great value. These same applications enable the end users to receive, address, and answer these tickets mobily as well.
