Featured Review
Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We've been in contact with Microsoft technical support mainly. After doing the research ourselves and troubleshooting, etc., if we can't find a permanent solution, we contact Microsoft to help us fix the issue. Sometimes the issue never gets fixed even by Microsoft. It can sometimes require us to reinstall the solution. However, these are very rare instances.""It is quite scalable.""I like the reporting service. SCSM has a good reporting service and analysis service for analysis requests.""For our cloud-based deployment of SCSM, the Autopilot is the best feature.""The support from Microsoft is good and we also have local support on the ground in Nigeria."

More SCSM Pros →

"The two most valuable features are the portal and reporting."

More TeamSupport Pros →

"It would be better if they had a portal for administrators. It would help me use it from anywhere and connect to any device from anywhere. I can administer the solution without a VPN.""There is no development with this product, and we had to go and buy additional ITSM solutions to sit on top of it. We had to buy products from companies like Cireson and Cased Dimensions in order to get the functionality that we need out of it. So, we're using Service Manager as an engine, rather than as a full-blown product. It is the engine, but we have other products sitting on top of it to make it work properly.""One of the disadvantages in this product is that the reporting module is not very easy. It requires SQL development skills, which not all customers or IT professionals have.""We have had some issues with the SCSM on-premise deployment version in the imaging aspects.""I have found SCSM not adequate enough to carry out some functions."

"It needs better integration with other tools like Jira."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The price of the solution could be better. My organization has an enterprise annual license with Microsoft which provides us support."
  • "It comes free with the enterprise agreement that we have, but the expense really is in having to buy another product to sit on top of it to make it work properly. You wind up having to buy additional support and additional product with their own support and maintenance costs on top of that."
  • "The license for SCSM is cheap."

  • "The price is approximately $70 per agent, per month."

    Top Answer:I have not made up my mind about what really needs to be improved. Overall, I am pleased with it mostly because it supplies the reports I need. As far as other features, it performs what I need it to… more »
