Pros

It’s far better than the last ITSM tool- Remedy on terms of efficiency and usefulness. Integrating with other tools is most popular in SNOW with easy REST API.
Very nice enviroment, useful tools, good managment, many users in support like this web based tool in many companies I've been worked in.
Overall, I really enjoy this software. It is well trusted, easy to use, and provides a good experience.

Pros

I love the private note feature as well, we can suggest solutions to specialists working on solving an issue before it is escalated. Something else I liked about FS is their asset management utility.
The integration with email is good, and we really like the mobile app as it gives us a far better ability to respond when away from the desk than email alerts.
The interface is extremely user friendly, ticket management is far superior to the system we were previously using and the support has been fantastic so far.

Cons

New users need to be oriented on how to navigate through this tool because it is quite confusing and intimidating to users at first.
Capacity Management is still a missing factor in ServiceNow though demand management can be somehow captured through projects.
Some out-of-box examples really don't match up to any organizations needs and leave you wanting more.

Cons

I placed 2 trouble tickets and I had my account suspended because I apparently was harassing them.
Difficult to note any dislikes on the application. Any issues we have are being considered for future upgrades.
Lack of Flexibiity to link with other products such as JIRA for example.

Nice and Growing, needs to be matured

Reviewed 2 years ago

Nice and Growing, needs to be matured sooner than the competitors like ServiceNow.

Pros

Look and Feel is nice. All Sections are covered.

Cons

it does not have mature functionality like designing complex workflows. Workflow management needs to be matured.

You can do a lot of great things with Freshservice

Reviewed 5 months ago

Complete platform for IT service management and reporting on client needs. It gives me the ability to develop material that can be provided as assistance to customers, as well as report back internally to the team and to top board management.

Pros

I appreciate that it is not only affordable, but also demonstrates a lot of value due to the fact that it comes with a lot of features considering how much it costs. FreshService is capable of competing with ServiceNow in terms of IT service management, and I am accustomed to utilizing ServiceNow.

Cons

The constraints placed on portal design, in addition to the requirement of having HTML coding skills. I have not been able to determine whether or not it is possible for us to have parent portal sites that include kid pages, and the process of developing these pages will require experience in coding.
