448,076 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its flexibility and ease of customization are its most valuable features."
"The design has been revamped in terms of GUI. The current interface is quite easy to read."
"It can adapt to any process in the organization."
"Incident management is the most valuable because we're using it to manage tickets for an accounting system. With the reports that are available, it allows us to track and identify trends at the type and item level. It also helps us in managing the workload better than what we had in Remedy, which is what we were using before 2013."
"This solution has provided me with a well-defined process and interaction, compared to my previous tool, GLPI."
"When it comes to implementing new features, they listen to what their customers want via a suggestion forum that they have."
"Its ITSM approach is quite useful."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the incident management module."
"Their end-user interface and technical support features could be improved."
"The solution does not interface well with other products and is difficult to implement."
"With the new version moving toward the codeless configuration is good, but it's losing flexibility."
"We aren't able to take emails that come in and turn them into tickets, especially when it comes to attachments. When an email has an attachment, like a screenshot, it is a very cumbersome process, and it does not work very well. I shouldn't have been paying technicians to cut and paste attachments from an email into the ticketing system. It should do that automatically. Other solutions are able to do that. This is something that needs to be improved. Test manager and knowledge management areas are probably amongst the worst parts of this solution. We try to use this solution for knowledge management, but it is not user-friendly. Therefore, it has limited ROI as you need to spend time to try and fully capitalize on the knowledge management system."
"An operator is also a user but requires creating two different records."
"This solution is modular so you only buy what you need, but I prefer what some companies are doing where they include everything in the package."
"The solution's change management could be better."
"Change management implementation, facility management, and making reservations on assets can be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"I would say that identify your requirements and pay for the support to implement and test those requirements, and then hope that you did a good job because the cost of their service is fairly expensive."
"The cost of the solution on a yearly basis is $20,000. Technical support is not extra. It's included in the yearly cost. Updates are also included. The solution is good at keeping its product up to date."
"Compared to other products in this segment, I think that they are priced well and not too expensive."
