Allowed the development team to concentrate on the client’s requirements, however the reporting and management information are very limited.

What is our primary use case?

To provide incident management for external customers and change management services for SaaS implementation.

How has it helped my organization?

The tool is an easy, off-the-shelf product which allowed us to decommission our in-house system. It allowed the development team to concentrate on the client’s requirements instead. 

What is most valuable?

The key feature was the incident management. It recorded and supported most of the client's details.

What needs improvement?

The reporting and management information (MI) are very limited, and stopped realistic and timely reporting on outstanding incidents.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What other advice do I have?

If you're looking for web-based ticket-management systems, it should be on the evaluation list. Given the setup is so simple, it could be evaluated very quickly from a functionality point-of-view.
