As a growing mid-sized company, we have been using the "ProProfs Help Desk" for over 2 years now. 

We ended up using a lot of different tools before settling for this one. The best part? The tool offers the perfect balance between affordability and functionality. You can enjoy premium help desk features such as powerful automation, chatbots, ticket management, knowledge base, customizable reports, and more.

Furthermore, the tool makes it easier for its user to share CSAT, NPS, or other feedback surveys with customers. So you can spot bottlenecks early and improve the CX.

BMC Remedy (Helix) ITSM is superb Helpdesk (servicedesk) tool. As a helpdesk agent, I can quickly create tickets using template; can refer and attached knowledge articles. Relating an incident to problem / change / CI is fairly simple as well. The ticket assignments are automatic, the SLAs gets attached automatically. I can pull reports of my open, closed or pending tickets anytime. I can also access my ticket console on my mobile/tablet devices and start working on it.

For business owners and admins life is fairly good as well, as BMC tool supports customizations, bi-directional integrations. so if you want to automate any IT ticket handling process its possible. LDAP and Email integration is pretty native and can be easily configured.

Compared to other solutions, I think BMC offers more capabilities w.r.t to customizations and choice of deployment.

4me; a platform that supports all service management capabilities and extends into other departments like HR and supply chain. Preconfigured out of the box SIAM/ESM capabilities and workflow. Great value for €. Supports small, mid and large size organisations.

Why is a platform the best choice for a Help Desk? The Help Desk is the counterpoint, start and end of all processes. Integration is therefore key to success.

I think the best solution is one where my team is comfortable facing the challenges of support, integrations, customizations, reporting and updates. There are several solutions that help a lot our digital transformation actions, but having a team always available for maintenance and evolution activities is essential, especially regarding the experience in the language and features that the product offers, all of this giving flexibility to any adjustment in the processes ITIL or unused. I currently work with Clarity Service Management and is meeting expectations. Good luck!

Hi community members, We need a lightweight ticketing system with superior communication/ticket submission options like chat/SMS/email (for ease of use by end-users). Having a KB would be ideal and we don't need a ton of depth around SLAs, billing or CRM features. As we're an EDU/K12 organization, price is a factor as well. Can you recommend a good product/solution that matches the mentioned...

Greetings, first of all what makes a good ticket system? Responding to your doubts, for ticket management to work, there must be an internal user commitment, document all the required information, follow up and solve what is required as far as possible, on the contrary, with proper follow-up. However, I recommend GLPI TICKET, which can help you and with statistics. Here a video how it works has subtitles in Spanish but it is easy to configure. I recommend installing it in centos. I'm to order.

Setting up and running the IT help desk you most probably think about their ability to receive and route tickets in an efficient way. You need to address the following things: - How they get tickets (portal, calls, e-mail). Good solution would do it mostly automatically without involving help desk members into the process. Proper self-service would allow optimizing the number of tickets. - How they route tickets to higher levels of support. Again, in many cases it's possible to route tickets automatically so humans mostly focus on exceptional cases. - How they communicate with users and higher-level support, if it's convenient enough, if the communication is logged properly. - How smoothly Help Desk integrated with Incident Management and Request Fulfillment processes. - How Knowledge about resolved tickets is accumulated and shared. - How to measure Help Desk performance. To put it, in a nutshell, I'd recommend to look at ITSM Service Desk function holistically, as at the process (even though ITIL say it's a function) and consider typical people-processes-products-partners combination to ensure processes (SD and adjoining ones) are set accurately, properly automated and people are trained to follow them. Consider Help Desk outsourcing as major service providers have this capability in place and can provide Help Desk as an effective service already.
