Cloud-based software.

5.0 3 years ago

Comments: It provides spectacular functions that allow you easily customizable construction. The interface is very intuitive. It enables you to automate emails speedily and easily. Its best feature is a self-service portal that helps to remove numerous doubts from consumers and avoids overloading the support staff who can keep their focus on consumers with issues. It provides a clear overview of open incidents. It can create KPI-based reporting. In simple words, it is an excellent tool to obtain information about consumers quickly. It addresses the issues, reports, and replies to the questions speedily. It offers operation management and object management very effectively.

Pros:

It helps businesses offer the best services to their consumers. It enables you to create workflows, manage incidents, and keep track of configurations. It's design and installation are simple as compared to other ticketing systems. The customer support is excellent. The API enables you to build incorporations into other tools without dependence on marketplace applications. It enables you to monitor the activities of the department.

Cons:

Creating reports is sometimes confusing. Also, creating workflow-based email prompts consumes much time and delays work for a couple of weeks. The events and actions modules are sometimes frustrating especially when triggers do not work. It has some limitations regarding chart building. The change process is confusing and requires regular guidance. It is pretty expensive. The installation process is quite tough. It does not allow users to update their profiles with additional details such as education, contact numbers, and links from social media forums.

Best ITSM available

5.0 6 months ago

Pros:

TOPdesk is very easy to implement. It can come with a best practice set-up if you like. The consultants I worked with were great but with a bit of learning you can do a lot of things yourself aswell. Compared to some competititors (ServiceNow for example) it doesn't feel like they try to bleed you dry with consultancy hours. Also the asset management module is awesome, fully customizable and API based. And although the actions and action sequences are a bit harder to learn, once you master them the options for automating are endless.

Cons:

No cons yet. Although the reports can be a bit meh, but you can connect to PowerBI or something similar through the OData feed.

Alternatives Considered: Planon and Freshdesk

Reasons for Choosing TOPdesk: ServiceNow is very hard to set up, need (expensive) consultancy for a lot of things and you need to know every process in detail. TOPdesk is far more flexible and easy to implement.

Switched From: ServiceNow

Reasons for Switching to TOPdesk: Planon sucks at IT. It's a bit better than TOPdesk on facilities but overall it's just less interesting. Freshdesk lacks basic functionality, they integrate well but I like having everything in one tool.

TopDesk is a ticket system that has very basic functionality.

3.0 6 years ago

Comments: Gets the job done, but lacks a lot of common features that other ticketing systems have out of the box.

Pros:

TopDesk is actively developing its product which is awesome! It is a good ticket system that gets the job done. I have had very little down time.

Cons:

They lack a lot of features and functionalities that I grew used to with our old ticketing system. Mass manipulation of tickets is lacking. you can only mark tickets as completed or closed in their system, you cannot transfer to a operator/operator group on mass, or mass categorize. They only recently introduced a chat integration but you have to contract the chat service through a 3rd party so another cost.
