Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
XFlow (Temperature) and Service Point together provided an extremely user-friendly and collaborative experience to the point of making it easy for all users of the product, whether end-users or analysts.
The most valuable features of this solution are reporting, configuration monitoring, and the Request and Incidents workflow.
It has all our configurations. All our infrastructure configurations are on a single pane of glass to view, allowing for one single point of information.
It helps when you have an incident or performing a problem change management process.
We can search open and closed cases to find what we have done in other incidents.
Being able to specify event rules and SLAs that can help to automate some of the processes that people are doing manually is valuable.
The fact that it aligns very well with ITIL. I think that's probably one of my favorite things about it, because it's following up a general best practice for service management.
the ticket system makes sure that everyone gets taken care of, and that makes for a better customer experience. Using the system verifies that no one gets left behind.
The workflow of the solution is very good.
We could quickly understand what was going on and what the customer wanted to do.
The solution is quite easy to integrate with other Microsoft products.
The call logging is the solution's most valuable feature. It's very easy to use.
This solution is easy to use.
The remote access is one of the features I really enjoy. The pushing of email updates and things like that are very good.
This product has helped our organization by allowing people to connect with each other.
Diversifying notification methods with pop-ups or ready-made WhatsApp or Skype integration packages would be welcome.
The monitoring tool is in need of improvement.
The interface for the users is a bit old-fashioned and not user-friendly.
We would like the CMDB to be populated automatically. At the moment, everything is manually created.
We would like more information about all the configurations that we have on our infrastructure side.
Needs custom dashboards, without them it takes too long to view some information (though xFlow is an improvement).
I would also like to see a simpler reporting tool. They went from one fairly robust, very complex, reporting tool - it was great - and then they went to another one that was also fairly complex and robust. That's a great tool for people who are report writers, but for the average person who just wants to get a quick little report, it's like handing somebody a chainsaw because they have to break some toothpicks in half.
The interface is pretty straightforward, but I think for some end-users a little more simplified user interface would help.
Technical support could be improved.
Some kind of bot assistance, some kind of artificial intelligence to help people solve the problems, would be interesting.
It's not too hard to compile stuff but it is hard to manage the solution. Even the design itself makes it difficult for management.
The patch management aspect of the solution should be improved. It's quite complicated and not user-friendly. If your systems are not patched properly, you are unable to pull reports.
Mobile application integration would be an improvement.
It crashes our client's computers. Sometimes they get blue screens. It would be useful if SCSM could check the upgrades or patches before we implemented them to see if they are going to crash a client's system. Or, if it does install, and the client's system crashes, it would be good if the solution could revert back somehow.
The price of this solution is high and it needs to be cheaper.
Once we had an issue with a desktop download that would not open.
Pricing and Cost Advice

Licensing is on an annual basis, with no additional costs.
It is an expensive solution.
It is a lower price vs. other things on the market.
