Service Desk is good

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Its good, easy to use, fast, functional.

Cons

Major complaint is every year the price rises substantially. The features are good, but the pricing, theyre pricing themselves out of the market. And its hard to move helpdesk products, because everyone gets used to it. I also dislike they don't have American support.

You get what you pay for

Reviewed 6 years ago

When we paid for the software (before switching to the free edition), support was very hard to understand. While SDP is certainly usable, it has been growing increasingly unstable for us. When we have time, we'll likely look into a different solution, like Spiceworks.

Pros

The software is easy to configure. The price is right for a small shop (free for up to five users). If you just need something basic, SDP fulfills the basic needs of a help desk.

Cons

The page redirects are buggy. Clicking links frequently go 404 at random as it serves a page wrong. Instead of going to http://servername/workorder.do it will instead just try to go to workorder.do and not find the page.

ServiceDesk Plus brought organization to the chaos that was our ticketing system.

Reviewed 6 years ago
Pros

Ease of use, and intuitiveness of the software makes training significantly simplified. Additionally, I enjoy how project management, service catalogs and asset tracking all tie together nicely.

Cons

Cost. As much as we love SDP, some of the features we would like to implement are simply too costly . As mentioned in the "Pros" section, we would love to incorporate CMDB, change management, project management, but the modules are simply too expensive for us.

Good ITSM platform for its money

Reviewed a year ago

A good product with offerings to meet its competitors in the market they focus upon. Many features, which are useful in routine ITSM operations with integrations to number of platforms, including Microsoft Teams. A bit backwards comparing the automation capabilities based upon AI like in competing products. However, can say that the product offers a value for money s upon spent it.

Pros

A really good product with value for money offerings. Nice dashboards with intuitive and user-friendly UIs to keep you attracted towards the product. Relatively easy to set-up and deploy with easy integrations to other product offerings from Manage Engine. The built-in templates are really helpful and can be employed with customisations based on requirement basis to need clients unique requirements.

Cons

Product support has been a concern which is one of the key reasons for the product being not getting the respective place in market against competition. There are many features and would require the support of the vendor to get them up and running perfectly. On-premise deployments tend to give lots of trouble, specially in the domain of getting them updated and patched. Further, would require additional components from other products to get the entire capabilities of an ITSM suite and thus would require to either deploy an agent along with the management consoles.

ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus: A Comprehensive ITSM Solution

Reviewed a year ago

Our overall experience with ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus has been positive. The software has been reliable and has allowed us to streamline our IT service management processes. The cost is a bit of a barrier, but the features and capabilities that it offers make it worth the investment.

Pros

ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus is an invaluable asset to our organization. Its intuitive user interface and comprehensive feature set make it easy to track, manage, and report on IT service requests. Automation capabilities, such as self-service portals, allow users to quickly submit and track their requests, while IT staff can quickly access and respond to service requests. The reporting capabilities are robust and allow us to quickly assess the performance of our IT services.

Cons

One of the drawbacks of ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus is the cost. For a comprehensive ITSM solution, it can be quite pricey. Additionally, it does not offer a lot of customizability in terms of the user interface, which can be a bit of a challenge for users who are accustomed to a certain workflow.

Great ticketing system for helpdesk

Reviewed 5 years ago

This is a great helpdesk application for most small-to-medium companies who don't need all the extra features that come with Autodesk, connectwise or Salesforce. Worked directly out of the box with minimal configurations needed.

Pros

Ease of use, setup, low resource consumption on server, built-in reporting is enough for my company, Solutions, preventative maintenance tasks, templates, email fetching, user portal, external mobile app.

Cons

Reporting isn't that user friendly, upgrades don't allow skipping of versions, not cumulative. Support isn't that good in resolving issues, so luckily we haven't had many

My experience has been amazing and productive

Reviewed a year ago

As an IT professional, solutions such as ManageEngine are essential for the prompt service delivery of HelpDesk employees within the organization. ManageEngine has many features. They are remote connection, video call and chat functions. You can even manage the computer's services or system files without connecting to the computer's desktop. I work in an organization with 500 employees, and the ManageEngine was very helpful in providing technical support. However, the availability of the ticket system in the ManageEngine makes it easier for you to give detailed reports to both the work efficiency and the management.

Pros

Among the alternatives, it was the most convenient to set up and use. It has a user-friendly interface

Cons

It's a very convenient product, I like ManagEngine's products in general, but sometimes additional add-ons can be a bit expensive.

A bit separated but getting better

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall, we've seen our share of good and bad days with SDP. Keeping up with their constant updates requires a lot of diligence, but the ability to expand the application and the number of other applications they are integrating with works really well for the price.

Pros

In general, if you're just looking for helpdesk software to get started, but something you can expand later, this is a great option.

Cons

Some of the options are not fully integrated and it's obvious they were completed by different design teams. For example, the Change Log and Project management sections don't seem to flow with the rest of the ticketing and service sections.

A basic Helpdesk software

Reviewed 3 years ago

I enjoy the product. We can spend more time handling tickets and less time managing the program that handles tickets.

Pros

It's pretty cheap and easy to setup. It is a basic helpdesk service out of the box, ready to go. There are no agents to install on computers, a plus for us. Updates are pretty easy to do as well.

Cons

The product is updated almost monthly and when we do get time to update, there are a bunch of them to do. They are all incremental and can't just run the latest.

Sdplus is a fantasitic IT ticketing system at a great price.

Reviewed a year ago

Overall we have better insight and better time to resolve because everything we need is right inside Sdplus. Even data and tools from other systems, integrate with Sdplus to make things like user password resets a 1 click affair.

Pros

All the customization options. We were really able to tailor the product to our processes. The pricing is fantastic and saved us thousands. Sdplus just integrates with nearly all other ME products. You can make your ticketing systems a one-stop shop for supporting users. Love that there is a mobile app that our staff can use. Specifically our IT staff when it comes to inventory as they can use their phones as a barcode scanner to track inventory. One less device they need.

Cons

There are so many features, initial setup can take a while to configure everything.

We have implemented ServiceDesk Plus as a part of our customer relationship management. It is also used for internal auditing purpose. ServiceDesk allows managing all the IT services seamlessly. We have been using ServiceDesk for years for all our help desk, facilities, and reporting needs. It also allows to quality management of the help desk agents. Its reporting tool facilitates to monitor and report helpdesk team progress in a visualized way.

Pros

So far, this the best ServiceDesk solution in the market. It is bundled with almost everything that can be expected in these kinds of solution. Actually, we have never used some of the features included with this. However, we are privileged to receive updates from the vendor itself. We are extremely satisfied with the overall product capabilities, comparing verdict solutions. Following are the most impressive features of the Service Desk + Easy Cloud integration + Best Asset management tools. + Best Reporting Tools. + Quality management capability of the staff

Cons

Impressive Value

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall this is a product I would highly recommend for companies that are starting on their journey into ITSM

Pros

The best part about this product is they offer an on-premise solution and a cloud solution with the price point being the same regardless of which option you choose. The support from startup to daily maintenance is extremely proficient. If you're looking for a solid entry level product for an IT service desk ticketing system this is a great product to get started with and help you grow until you reach the next level.

Cons

While there are many features of this product at a very low price point some features look as if they're not as refined as more expensive products.

Reviewed 5 years ago

They are ol' reliable and they get the job done. I'm happy to continue to use them.

Pros

It works great for our help desk needs. There are plenty of other features that we still need to explore such as creating multiple groups to add in departments.

Cons

Some of the features can be a little better such as the contracts section. That being said I haven't found a great contracts section for any of the products I have used.

Tech support actually best part of the product

Reviewed 8 years ago

The product itself started out really poor in the early days (3 yrs+ ago). Nowadays with the current version it's still pretty unfriendly and unintuitive compared to the competition. Their price is okay and their support while often unfriendly and hard to coax into actually assisting, has been mostly knowledgeable and capable in our experience. It does all the basics out of the box and can be programmed to do more but it still needs a lot of help in being user friendly - for technicians and end users alike.

Great value for money and after-care

Reviewed a year ago

Excellent. We use this not only for IT but have a seperate instance for our facilities team which have had great success in migrating from an expensive, over the top FM platform.

Pros

The ease of setup/deployment of the cloud version. It was a dream. There are good documentation sources available to follow if you get lost. The ease of logging tickets via e-mail and appending tickets via e-mail is probably the most liked aspect.

Cons

Lack of asset management link between cloud SDP and cloud Endpoint Central. This is the same with remotely connecting to assets via SDP Cloud.
