"Optimaadministración de incidencias"

What do you like best?

Principalmente la facilidad con la que se cuenta para acoplarlo de acuerdo a las necesidades de la empresa.

Es dinámico para el uso de los usuarios como para los administradores.

La capacidad que ofrece al hacer análisis de información

Una de las cosas que me agradan es la capacidad de acomodar el reporteo, al igual la manera de administrar lo proyectos.

Ya que la forma de administrarlos, son dinámicos, amenos, y fácil de entendimiento.

Es de mi agrado que este pensado para la parte análisis, llámese que al momento de levantamiento de incidencia este este con categorías cerradas, para lograr agrupar la información.

What do you dislike?

El dinamismo con el que cuenta para hacer análisis de información, y administrar los proyectos que se tienen como resultado.

"Waimea College has been using SysAid on premise for many years over many versions as our Helpdesk Ti"

What do you like best?

Waimea College has been using SysAid on premise for many years over many versions as our Helpdesk Ticketing service.

It has worked very well for us and as new versions have come out, SysAid have assisted with Education pricing allowing us to keep a professional application within our budget.

They have assisted us whenever we have had queries and technical issues, be they of our making or not, regardless of which hosting Microsoft Server version we had, or SysAid version.

The SysAid support team were particularly helpful when upgrading through our earlier versions to the current version.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing specifically we dislike in how we are using SysAid.

However their is always room to improve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please try it and spend some seious time looking at how it can be setup. You will be surprised at how and what you can do.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Basic Helpdesk for different services and areas within our environment.

ICT Help Desk, Buildings Maintenance, Health and Safety

What Service Desk solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Best "bang-for-buck" ITSM platform!"

What do you like best?

What you get out of the box is what I like best. It really gives you the must haves, in the current technological climate, that companies need such as Asset Management, Service Record, BI Reporting etc. SysAid also follows ITIL so the inclusions of Change and Problem Management are delightful. With all of these included at a much lower price that other "brand name" ITSM platforms, SysAid was the easy choice.

Another great feature that I forgot to mention is the customisability of SysAid. Recently, I've been working closely with the SysAid team to make the tool work for us and it's been amazing!

What do you dislike?

SysAid only has one downfall which is the custom application/field creation. A lot of these simple projects, such as including an automated hyperlink to an Action field requires the help of the Professional Services team. Not a huge issue, but would love the ability to open SysAid up ourselves to create a simple hyperlink.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a solution that is so broad, that makes it easy to implement, yet so tailored at a cost effective price, then SysAid is for you. There are many addons that you can turn on to enable integration and really make this platform your own.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Prior to SysAid we had no Asset Management and no Vendor Management meaning we had no idea where our equipment was and could not hold our own vendors accountable for when they breached SLA - this impacts us heavily. Now that we have used SysAid and tailored this to work for us, and also using the Escalation Rules/Routing section, we've been able to cut out a lot of manual process for the guys while being able to report on assets and vendors.

"Real review"

What do you like best?

the simplicity and configuration of notifications, scans, rules when certain events occur. The tool is extremely easy to install, understand, and use. It has a very good support in its self-help, in its user forums and online support, it really knows and knows the product, I have scarcely had to use its services a couple of times in 5 years. I love this software!

our consulting clients ask us about a tool and we definitely recommend SysAid

we have learned as fast as it is configured that sometimes we support our own clients when they have doubts, we guide them as they can also learn

SysAid will most likely surprise us in the future with more excellently wonderful functionalities

What do you dislike?

that the BI reports are not free, they carry an additional cost, but they are extremely useful because the old reports had to be obtained one by one and adding more data involved making a new report of zero. with this module the nightmares of making reports are over

Recommendations to others considering the product

if you want to have control of your assets, reports of incidents, requests, problems, see the relationships in the CMDB, measure service levels and never have to make a manual report, use SysAid.

It is an all-in-one tool

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

asset control, incident reports, requests, relationships in the CMDB, measurement of service levels and weekly report scheduling

"It is a excellent program."

What do you like best?

In addition, users have adapted quickly to the use of the tool to the point that they already give us information to improve the use of it. This tool has been very efficient for our company because it has changed the way in which users inform us about the problems of the day to day. In addition to that thanks to its database we can see case already solved and validate if they can be solved with another pending. This has become very important for us because it speeds up the time to solve daily problems in our company.

What do you dislike?

the time that I have to wait to open a ticket.Sometimes when adding a ticket the page lasts a time of 20 seconds to add the ticket. also sometimes the notification emails do not arrive but that can be improved.

Another change that must be made is the control software, the default software is very slow when connecting to another PC. This is handled very slowly. This must be improved since it is a great tool to solve user problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The speed should be improved a little, at the moment of creating the tickets.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We solve the experiences in the area of IT, with this application we have obtained a great benefit when it comes to registering and solving problems derived from the area of technology.In addition, each day, users become more familiar with the tool, demonstrating how easy it is to use and how quickly it is integrated into the company.

"Sysaid Review"

What do you like best?

I like that I can have my users simply email me and the ticket is created. This allows us to keep track of issues and respond to them in a timely manner.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that I have to go into the service record to add my time spent on an issue. I feel that everything should be on the first page.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to use Sysaid support and your Sysaid Rep to allow them to help implement Sysaid the way you want for your company so it works best for your company and the way you want to view it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Before implementing Sysaid the company only used email to report an issue. That email usually got lost or the first one of the day got pushed to the bottom of the list and forgotten about. Now tickets are created and do not get forgotten about or lost.

"Soporte eficiente y fácil de usar "

What do you like best?

Usamos el sistema hace mas de 10 años, pasamos de una versión local a la nube, no solo lo usamos para tickets de soporte, también para temas administrativos, las plantillas y avisos han sido de gran utilidad. los correos personalizados e incluso los mensajes de texto han sido de gran ayuda.

What do you dislike?

Algunos temas de soporte han quedado pausados por algún motivo, no son tan relevantes pero deberían avisar el estado, El costo de cada administrador es algo elevado y lo que realmente lo hace caro si se tienen varios administradores, deberían tener cierto grado y costo de administración

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consideren los costos de usarlo de forma local o en la nube, en la nube hacer respaldo de una base de datos podrían tener algún costo , así como considerar el tamaño de administradores que puede elevar costo, pueden pedir pruebas de ciertos módulos para considerarlos a compra

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Soporte técnico centralizado entre países, temas administrativos los hemos resuelto adecuando las plantillas a solicitudes de viáticos, autos, avión, etc. Evitar las llamadas telefónicas

"A powerful tool"

What do you like best?

The ability to manage and classify incidents, automatic notifications when a ticket changes status, remote connections to computers with problems, the creation of a knowledge base to document processes and incidents and the generation of statistical reports to offer metrics precise evaluation.

What do you dislike?

The mail sending module can be improved since it is difficult to format the messages and sometimes this is necessary.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The attention and incident resolution times have been reduced while the communication has been improved, through the use of the SysAid portal, with the end users. Through the use of statistical reports, it has been possible to identify recurrent problems that require definitive solutions and at the same time parameters of evaluation of support areas have been established in order to make decisions to seek continuous improvement.

"Great all-around IT Mangement Product"

What do you like best?

Tracking our helpdesk tickets was the original intent on our purchase but we do so much more now. Remote control just works. Asset Management is a huge plus! We know what's installed at any given time. The agent deployment has improved greatly and I no longer need to use the separate software that's installed on my computer.

What do you dislike?

I feel like the Projects module could use some attention. It's a start but it's not very easy to use. It takes a lot of clicks to set the project and tasks up.

It would be nice to do surveys but we don't want to send one out every time. It would be nice take a list of the completed tickets from the day (or a specified period of time) and send surveys to a sample of them. If you're an MSP with a higher volume, every ticket is probably ok. But we have 500 users...every ticket is too much.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Spend a lot of time in your demo process, whether it be the whole system or just a module. If you run out of time, ask for an extension. SysAid is great at giving you the time you need to properly test. If you have a problem, just ask for help. Their support is pretty good and they'll figure out your problem one way or another.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SysAid creates a positive, easy to use, web-based portal for our end users as well administrators. We save numerous trips not only in our main building but to our others buildings and other cities.

We recently purchased the Self-service Password Reset module and this is going to be a big win for IT and users.

"SysAid as the centre of your ITSM, and they will help you from start to finish "

What do you like best?

We like the product flexibility, so we can have a tailor made software / system for our needs, but still have all the tools and best practice knowledge at our finger tips. Setting up needs no coding, just clicks.

What do you dislike?

The Multi language support, had still some English words in the other language modules. The strength of SYSaid is that you can use our own customize file, so every word used in the software can tailored.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make a deal for more years, you don't switch every year in the ITSM tooling, so give them the commitment, and you receive the benefit

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are in the proces of become a ISO 27001 Certified company, and SYSaid tooling helps us realize that.

"My all time favorite and best IT help desk Software ever!"

What do you like best?

it captures almost everything that one requires to manage my client especially the embedded ITTIL

My clients are able to access logged tickets. The escalation feature makes my clients very happy giving them the assurance that we are on top of our game when it comes to their issues.

The web page and the app is very cool and very easy to use as well.

I like the fact that it hosted on the cloud.

What do you dislike?

It does not give me the duration between when a ticket was opened and closed. Time tracking really needs to be improved. when a report is generated, we need to be able to know the duration when ticket was worked on.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I shall always recommend Sysaid for the following reasons

ease of use especially it been cloud based

Cloud base access.

ease of automation

Asset Management

Escalation process

mobile App is superb

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managed IT Services. I am able to respond to my clients on time. I really like the escalation aspect of it.

Asset management makes it easy to manage my client's asset.

"Intuitivo, amigable, preciso"

What do you like best?

Me gusta que el sistema sea dinamico en su manejo de informacion, el manejo de activos es bueno, la administracion de proyectos resulta ser muy facil de manejar, las estadisticas son objetivas para la creacion de proyectos , la administracion de indicencias es muy buena, la interfaz como lo comento en el titulo es bastante intuitivo , su informacion estadistica es muy precisa y la interfaz es muy amigable

What do you dislike?

todo me agrada, el diseño es bastante funcional , el reporteo es bastante interpretable para su manejo ya que permite cargar adjuntos para su mejor entendimiento , solo en ocasiones el reporteo puede tardar un poco sin embargo puede ser por tema de hardware se tendra que revisar si esto puede ser resuelto internamente de lo contrario se contactara al equipo de sysaid

"Help Desk that can be customized."

What do you like best?

Easy to setup and customize, you can have a Help up and running out of the box,

and if you like you can change the titles of fields.

There support team are there willing and able to help you whenever you call,

They even have an app they call "SysAid Panic" when you setup your profile and open

the app you will see a Big Red Button, pressing that get you call within I would say

5 to 10 minutes. Not only do you have Support on the line but parts of there managment

team as well. So there support is very good, I know I usd it once.

You can add custom fields, You can even have execute actions on save or on Load

to check field values or to set the value of the your fields.

You can setup you Inventory to help you keep track of your assets via and Agent, SNMP

scans or WMI scans to load the items into your Configuration Management DataBase (CMDB).

You can configure what values from the Agent data is loaded in to the CMDB, you can

even load the CMDB via CSV files so you have multiple ways to get your data into SysAid.

You can customize your Tickets to have the fields you want you can add your own fields

(Dates, Text, Number and List’s) if you don’t see what you need.

The Bottom Line SysAid is Easy to setup and configure the way you like of course within limits.

You can even add your own forms and templets and change the templates that came with it out of the box.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to say here since you can customize the system.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try you will be very surprised how easy it to setup, manage and use.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to track Issues and emails pertaining to tickets all in one place.

We are able to see how many systems are running different versions of software , we can see who was the last person that used a system before it started to have issues.

We are able to monitor tickets and send out notifications based on SLA.

We have or system setup to set Groups or if you like Queues based on employee locations which is a big deal when you have to travel from location to location.

We are able to prefill Phone number and ext. and Location based on the user information in there profile so routing works.

"fits our needs"

What do you like best?

For 3 years now, we have been using the SysAid solution in the cloud, which provides us with the administration and management of all our IT running requests. It allows an easy integration of all the analysts and a single source of information for the management of the service.

What do you dislike?

Difficulty in the support in Spanish would be good to have more presence in Colombia, we have some doubts in functionalities and / or requirements to request but we do not know with whom to treat them

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With sysaid we solve all the needs and requests of our IT users, the main benefit is the administration of IT resources and compliance with the SLA.

"SYSAID for SME"

What do you like best?

We have been using SYSAID for over 5 years now and we have no issues with the system. We have 3 streams for 3 different teams and all work smoothly.

What do you dislike?

We tried the Change management module but wasn't suitable for our business. Asset management system is quite good and we have been using this for the last 2 years effectively to manage our assets at multiple sites.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SYSAID have a good pricing structure and allows you to add modules as you go along and develop

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All issues are logged using SYSAID. Infrastructure/Applications/BI/IMACS

We are quickly able to spot any trends for issues being raised by using the automated reports on a weekly basis.

"Great Helpdesk Software"

What do you like best?

**Everything.

**The ability to customize everything and anything.

**Not paying for modules that we would have no use for.

**The support is one of the best I have dealt with.

**The forums provide a ton of valuable information.

What do you dislike?

There arent many things I dislike overall. This is a personal gripe- One thing I could say I am unhappy about is their choice to change licensing prices. When we first bought the software, we paid extra for a perpetual license, with lifetime upgrades and support. Now we have to pay a yearly maintenance fee to keep up to date. We avoided the cloud option to steer clear of monthly/annual payments, but that changed.(I understand a software company has to make money to continue to develop a product. The price isnt terrible compared to some other software maintenance fees we pay.)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just Try it. Worst case, it doesn't meet your needs. Then you continue searching.

But if you are tasked with researching a new or replacement ticketing system, Sysaid is a great option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use Sysaid not only for our IT helpdesk solution, but also for our "Maintenance Department" Ticketing system as well. After a number of tweaks and rules, their system runs in parallel to the IT system, through the same server, but seem totally separate. And with the only cost being additional Administrator licenses, it was a great solution.

Also being able to keep track of installed software and product license keys for all of our assets has really proven to be a great help when auditing licenses.

Without Sysaid, I can safely say our company's IT department would not have accomplished nearly as much as we have in the time we have used it.

"Postive Support that go the extra"

What do you like best?

Goes the extra to fill up the time. Often when you are in a "training" session as soon as they have covered what you want they run off to do something else, not Sysaid, they stay on had go through some other information that may assist in having your system operate better.

The support staff are friendly and seem to take in interest in you and your company and as mentioned go that little bit extra to ensure that you get the best out of the system and make use off all the features it has to offer.

We also like the fresh clean interface, our old system looked tired and old and really needed something that showed a modern looking interface.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes a little long to get a support person when the issue is a little more complex. Also the online help is a little clunky and the search feature does not work that well. There is lots of info there, but needs a better way to expose it and search through it. w

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just do it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We where finding our end users where not engaged in our old system and therefore they often failed to use it to submit requests for help and assistance from us.

Sysaid is a very end user friendly Helpdesk system withy a powerful back end that my tech can easily access from anywhere.

"Sadly not up to the job"

What do you like best?

It appeared to have a multitude of features (Servicedesk/CMDB/password resets etc.)

What do you dislike?

The service was one of the poorest I have experienced. We had a technical issue for over 6 months and despite various attempts to get it resolved (it was just a basic monitoring function - we wanted to know server availability) we never felt any urgency or understanding from sysaid. They did admit it was a bug that would be fixed "in a future release" but could give no timeframe for resolution. they did respond when it was renewal time - not to fix the problem but to request payment (they honestly expected us to pay for a service that did not deliver on what it claimed)!- then they have added insult to injury by stopping our license. We are currently evaluating alternative providers..

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to provide basic reporting (e.g avaialbility of servers) then I would look at other products as this does not cut it. The service standard is one of the lowest I have encountered.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

As a basic helpdesk it worked - albeit a bit clunky and hard to configure to get it to behave how you want it to. It is not intuitive. The service is one of the worst I have encountered which is ironic given we were using the product to try and provide service to our customers.

"Both quality and value; responsive and supportive organization"

What do you like best?

Fairly intuitive interface, and compared to experience with other products, one of the better interfaces, regardless of price.

The SysAid community is very supportive and collaborative, and smart.

Pertinent videos and webinars are frequently offered, and there is also an excellent library of helpful resources to reference.

Not outrageously priced.

Easier to manage than many of the comparable products out there. Also, while there are indeed some easier to manage products/services, they tend to also not be as "powerful" a tool - when evaluating those other less-powerful products, we have found ourselves feeling limited and short-changed by them. With SysAid, we are still enjoying finding new ways to utilize it.

What do you dislike?

Some searches can be a little clunky, insofar as backing up and sometimes needing to re-enter search criteria, when you wish it would remember the criteria. Not a big deal, but a "darn, I wish I hadn't lost those other search results, and need to re-search."

Recommendations to others considering the product

Get SysAid.

SpiceWorks (the product we know many other crash-strapped schools look at) is good, but with SysAid not only does it do what you bought it for, but it will also expand the possibilities of what else you can use it for.

Check out some of the many resources the SysAid has available for its users, so that those users can be better informed and more adept with this tool.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

While primarily used as a "ticketing system", it has increasingly in the process become a huge archive of solutions and trouble-shooting, greatly aiding subsequent trouble-shooting, as well as tracking patterns.

Also, our userbase finds it an effective way to communicate and keep on top of our service.

"Review Sysaid cloud"

What do you like best?

the first thing to say about sysaid on cloud, its that you can use it wherever you are, just login and start administrating your assets, requests and incidents.-

What do you dislike?

maybe what i dislike about sysaid is that you cant customize at least 2 reports for your information.-

Recommendations to others considering the product

consider that with this you can do more things from it, than others kind of software. here you can manage the assets and many parameters for your it administration.-

"Seriously, a 450% rate hike???"

What do you like best?

Long time user and loved the ticket management system.

What do you dislike?

SysAid has attempted to become a one-stop shop and has become very bloated with a lot of features that we would never use. In some cases, due to the configuration complexity, getting the service to do what you wanted was a little bit of a hassle.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SysAid should have offered al-a-carte packages to users that would not use all the features and were unwilling to pay a 450% rake hike just for one feature.

Unfortunately, I have already found an alternate provider, and will not be coming back to SysAid.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was only interested in the ticket management feature. Signed up several years ago for $270 per year. SysAid elected to invoke a 450% rate hike to $1,200 per year. I had to then scramble around to find an alternate ticket management system. Unfortunately, I can no longer recommend SysAid to anyone.

I highly recommend SysAid. Its versatility will be challenging for some. However, if you would like a feature rich product that you can customize to fit your needs, SysAid is a great choice!

We have migrated from a less feature-rich ticket tracking system to SysAid. We have gained increased capability and many more features, such as change and asset management all in one integrated tool. We have realized greater insight into our incident management and improved customer service.

"Simple and effective. "

What do you like best?

The Sysaid ITSM application is a simple and yet powerful ITSM application software. It is a cloud based applicatiion that required very little to minimal installation and setup. What i like most about Sysaid is that the navigation options are very easy to navigate and it requires almost no user training to get started. One could almost start working on sysaid immediately with little user training.

Sysaid comes standard with Incident management, change management, problem and knowledge management. In addition, it also comes with Asset management and event monitoring functionalities. It has built in chat consoles and chat sessions to allow for users to chat with service desk personnels. It has a powerful indexed search option that is easily accessible always from the menu bar.

The Analytics options are very handy to create reports, understand ticket trends and review SLA/SLM.

What do you dislike?

Sysaid lacks advanced ITSM and project management functionalities. It does not have options for maintaining service catalogs, capacity and demand management abilities.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve when it comes to initial setup (Though the SysAid support is fantastic and helps very thoroughly).

"Good experience"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of the interfance, since in a very clear and clean way allows the user to create the requests, the inventory model is very detailed and easy to execute.

What do you dislike?

the survey, it would be nice if the user could fill in the same email without having to go to a link.

Recommendations to others considering the product

to be able to create web forms in an easier way, either to deliver equipment or to integrate them to other departments for all types of requests.

"I brought Sysaid onto the Kinetico IT Support team because i had used it before"

What do you like best?

How it can integrate with Active directory for reaching out and finding all of our devices and all of their software and in some cases licenses. It allows us to input data regarding licenses and keep track of how many we have and then keep track of where it is installed

What do you dislike?

It is missing application pushing and updating I can push installs of Firefox out through its agent. One other feature that would be great would be to have the ability to track non integrated devices on a per user basis.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest they at the very least try it using the trial version. They will be astounded at how good it really is. Also consider it's add-on modules before you consider separate products that do the same thing.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It saved us $5000/year on heldesk software. It certainly made me look good by find this product and saving money. It allows us to do this without hiring another person to answer phones an open helpdesk tickets because of its integration with our email system.

"A good IT Service Management tool"

What do you like best?

Easy to configure, very customisable, many ways to notify users.

What do you dislike?

you cannot access all your info directly from database, also service request log table, there are many data that we could make up and get really valuable análisis, this year the cloud instance has a really low performance.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They may have a clear roadmap about what they want to measure, register and analyze

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We now get centralized data from helpdesk and IT support, we can now anilyze and take actions, we have improved the time to solve issues, and a good track for service request.

What do you like best?

The ease of use! I have worked with other ticketing system programs and I have to say SysAid is one of the best I have used. The interface is easy to navigate, very user friendly, and pretty detailed. Being the only IT tech at my location I am responsible for inputting and maintaining all of our equipment, with SysAid I am able to keep track of it all easily and accurately.

What do you dislike?

I have not found any issues I do not like about SysAid

"A solid web-based helpdesk app"

What do you like best?

One of the primary things we were looking for when we went with SysAid was a web-based platform. This was big for us because we wanted our team to have access to the app from anywhere at anytime. The features that are most beneficial to us are the customization capabilities, the password services module and the pricing. I believe SysAid is a great value.

What do you dislike?

Early on the timezone difference created support challenges, but that has gotten better with time. We had an issue with password services that we'd reported and kept being told the fix was coming. I believe it took Three releases to finally get resolved. But it did get resolved.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Some of the business problems we solved with SysAid include: self-service unlocks and password resets for AD, ability to route multiple input methods into one ticketing system, and the ability to route tickets to different teams based on specified criteria.

"Sysaid Review"

What do you like best?

It is very customizeable. It allows your users to notify you of their issues in many different ways.

What do you dislike?

Their support is not great. I dread calling them. It is usually slow to respond and not very helpful when you get someone. Also the way time is calculated. It requires the ticket be micro managed by the support person. Example if a call comes in, ticket must be created and set in open status for time to start calculating. If you help user first and the create/close case there is no way to add time. The time on that request will be 0.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I don't know if I would recommend Sysaid. Their product is okay, but if you ever have to work with support it is a huge headache.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Their revamped reporting module is great. For creating work flows and esclation rules, it is great. It has helped us better utalize our time.

"Great help desk solution"

What do you like best?

The automatic ticketing feature, where a user can email a designated address and a ticket will automatically be created. When users call our help desk phone line, we can advise them to send an email to this address that will then automatically route their message to the ticket list. From there, we are able to categorize, title, and assign tickets to users and to the IT worker who will be handling the ticket. If for any reason a user emails one of us directly, we are able to forward that email, and all of the pertinent information will be included. This is helpful for documentation.

What do you dislike?

The inability to email non-corporate accounts from within the ticket itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would suggest that anyone looking into SysAid be prepared to dig into all that it has to offer before you go live. I think that we use much of it, but still could take advantage of more if we took time on the front end to research and test more extensively.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are better able to track IT request from our end users and mainstreaming communication. Users understand our processes and a quick to submit a request whereas they used to seek out our individual help, clogging our ability to best assist them.

"Excellent HelpDesk Application"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity yet full functionality of the HelpDesk. They continue to improve the system, for which I'm grateful.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it's difficult finding what you need on their web site and support site.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SysAid continues to improve functionality and usability. I've been using the product for about 11 years and have run it on both Linux and Windows. Their support has always been spot on and the product is well worth the investment of time and money.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"modular and compact"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Sysaid are its functionalities and tools to manage resources and services, such as its easy integration for the generation of cases, such as sending an email. its integration with assets, where you can manage the resume of the computer equipment and other devices

What do you dislike?

the unfriendly way of organizing the structure in the category of service cases and also the fields when accommodating the files of the incidents

Recommendations to others considering the product

Consider that it is a very compact tool for good practices in the use of the service in IT and at the same time it generates a lot of support to have organized the assets of the company

"fast and easy"

What do you like best?

its easy to use and the practical way to install and configure it. The administration is very intuitive and the asgination of permissions also.

What do you dislike?

The increase in the cost of maintenance that went up by 100% did not seem justified and the explanations they gave was that they decided so. It was not a correct justification. For the increase they offered more items but they are items that we did not need

Recommendations to others considering the product

in a next increase in maintenance cost it would be good to have a good justification in that increase

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The main problems that could be solved are those of incident records and the unlocking of the password, I think they are the main and the most beneficial

"Simple, robust and easy to implement. Very easy to customize."

What do you like best?

The implementation time for us was about one week, however since then, we have been able to do a lot of customization to it and fit to many of our processes.

The system is very easy to modify, we started using it with our financial shared service center, but later, we fit it to other verticals, it support, consumer finance ticketing among others.

What do you dislike?

Very few things, improvements would be nice to moving between tickets to tickets on a person's queue, this is a bit slow sometimes and not so visual as other competitors.

The timers are a very useful tool, they keep good track of any SLA, however, with so many verticals on the system, the timers are limited to only 10 which causes that some verticals doesn't have any way to measure the timers. Standardization can fix this however with many verticals this is a task very hard to obtain as their success criteria is different.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Document the processes before buying any software, it will reduce the implementation time and you will obtain better benefits out of this, in general, you will save more money and obtain results faster if these processes are well defined.

Another point related, when you have this processes defined, test them in the analog world, you can use email or other tools to test the processes before buying a system.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are using sysaid as a single channel of contact for many verticals, achieving traceability, control, responsibility assignment and overall management abilities in big transaction processes in the areas of:

1. Financial Shared Service Center

2. Consumer finance and credit management

3. IT and system support

4. Retail customer service center

"Einfache Ticketing - Vielfältig und schnell Erweiterbar"

What do you like best?

Es ist einfach zu administrieren und sowohl die Admins als auch die Enduser sind begeistert mit der Übersicht der Meldungen - Ebenso die Rückmeldung erfolgt automatisch und alle sind zufrieden.

Die Erweiterbarkeit auf nicht IT-Bereiche (Technik), könnte überzeugend dargestellt werden.

What do you dislike?

Bis jetzt ist alles zufriedenstellend! Wir haben bis jetzt kein Problem erlebt, die nicht durch den Support erledigt werden könnte.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Insbesondere die Entlastung der IT-Helpdesk war für uns der Fokus als wir eine neue Ticketing-System gesucht haben.

"Great Service Desk Software"

What do you like best?

What I like the best, is the ease of configuration and the reliability of the tool, we rarely had an incident regarding the unavailability of SysAid. Besides, we had have a great support from Technical Support and Sales forces from SysAid.

What do you dislike?

Although it is easy to configure the software, sometimes may be difficult to configure some options and rules.

Recommendations to others considering the product

At least give it a try.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SysAid was the chosen one to be our Service Desk Manager tool, and it is more than 4 years since we started using it. Our benefits are that we now have a better incidents, service requests and problem management workflow and control.

"Well defined roadmap and activities"

What do you like best?

SysAid provides you the entire list of task that must be done; asset management and monitoring agent are effective and reduce the time spent by the staff in executing patching and monitoring assets.

What do you dislike?

I'd like to have more information in regards of how certain configuration changes can affect specific functionality early in the project, Example: issue creation via screen clip and video recording feature only work if the issue type is an Issue or Incident. If you change the type as a service request, that functionality can't be deployed

Recommendations to others considering the product

The UI migh need a refresh, is a work in progress, but the Asset Management functionality is definetely a huge time saver for IT Staff

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Decrease in maintenance activities as patching and planned upgrades, anticipate asset performance decrease before end user is impacted, stablish staff SLA, identify common issues and deploy preventive solutions to those

" Very good application"

What do you like best?

Good administration of computer equipment as well as the raising of incidents,also what I like about this platform of indexes is the management of monthly reports that are discussed in my company on the incidences of the month

What do you dislike?

Very bad organization of your bontones at the time of levnatar an incidence has to be more practical,Since it is very difficult for the user to be able to raise a ticket because the ticket categorization is very confusing, it would be better to improve that

Recommendations to others considering the product

If I would recommend it to another company since I have been working with you for three years and its prices are also low compared to other applications related to the raising of incidents

"Can't search the knowledgebase"

What do you like best?

I like the level of detail that can be associated with support tickets.

What do you dislike?

The search function for knowledgebase articles has been broken for the better part of a year now.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Go with the cloud based solution. Like too many companies they seem to care less and less about their on-prem customers and focus all of their development on cloud customers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are able to process more user requests/incidents than with our previous system due to how automated routing can be done based off of multiple factors.

"Great Helpdesk Software with some baggage"

What do you like best?

Asset Management, Remote Control, ticketing System. Multiple filter drop downs for organizing tickets. Escalation rules. Ability to implement active directory. Large friendly font structures if needed. Server/Client software for managing all of your windows/mac computers

What do you dislike?

Constant bugs in new releases, Very long Customer Service Response Time, Lack of new features that people need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think hard about their hosted service for better support in the long run. We got on when it was ON-premise only, and their service time is horrible.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A centralized efficient HelpDesk Software. Before we used a part of our ERP for helpdesk tickets and it was horrendous. This has allowed us to have a centralized ticketing system with reporting, asset management, and the ability to remotely help users.

"Flexible, mature service desk tool"

What do you like best?

Super flexible product. Has come along way in the many years it has been in development. New features are added frequently - with the cloud version being updated more frequently than the on premise releases. Supports many different database types when installed on prem. My account manager is very responsive, and the company has great communication with upcoming features and tutorials on how to setup new functionality.

What do you dislike?

It can be challenging to setup. Due to it being a very flexible product, it does take a substantial amount of upfront time to get it setup exactly the way you want. It really benefits from having someone experienced administer the system (likely the person who installed it).

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Having a service desk tool has been very beneficial for my organization. The fact that it is very customizable allowed me to tailor my workflow and the information I want to capture, for maximum efficiency. Their system integrates with many third party tools, so I plan on activating the quickbooks data sync.

"Useful management tool that facilitates and enhances productivity"

What do you like best?

We use Sysaid to track and manage assets, change database, and the helpdesk tool. These are the most useful tools that we are employing in our environment at this time. I know we have only begun to unlock all of the features.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the asset network discovery feature. It has never worked well for us. Also, the remote control tool has never worked quite well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We used to have a problem with coordinating between each individual in the IT Team what was worked on, what was resolved, and what still needed to be done. Sysaid helpdesk has resolved this problem and enhanced our ability to manage and assist in ways we were unable to do so before.

"SysAidIT for clients"

What do you like best?

SysAidIT is a breeze to implement. You can have it up and running in less than 30-minutes.

What do you dislike?

Configuration management graphics are limited by small space and mobile device web, such as Safari, lacks vertical scroll bars for incident records effectively hiding Submit and Apply buttons. The app is limited and has some usefulness, but the full web version is the best solution for us - if it had vertical scroll capability. There are no limitations when using standard desktop computers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I wouldn't hesitate to buy SysAid. It is both acceptably usable out-of-the -box and highly configurable. We especially appreciate the LDAP integration with our domain controller.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Ticket/incident reporting. End users especially like the "green" shortcut on their desktops. Help desk especially likes that the green icon app automatically captures a screen shot. End User Management especially like SysAid's ability to accept ticket requests from non-account holding users by eMail. This is important to us as we support outside agencies such as County EMS and volunteer fire departments who are not part of our 9-1-1 call center.

"Elegant yet lightweight Service Desk that is customizable for any organization"

What do you like best?

Our whole organization has adopted SysAid for not only managing Service Desk, but our SDLC and Implementation process. In a nutshell, SysAid is a fantastic tool that is lightweight on our organization that doesn't have much IT bandwidth to dedicate to issues and support. The SysAid Community is very helpful and our Organization as a whole is more connected across Departments to the Customer.

-Support & Community

-Fully Customizable

-HIPPA Compliant & Accessible Anywhere

What do you dislike?

-Email integration features could be expanded upon

-Branding limitations within the cloud environment

-Reporting capabilities need improvement

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our Organization was searching for 1 tool that the entire organization could use for collaboration and visibility. SysAid is that ONE tool for us!

We have really thought outside of the box and have actually utilized Tasks and Projects and renamed R&D/ Software Releases. We are now able to link Bugs and Feature Requests from our Service Desk to these Software Releases to track resolutions and compile release notes.

"Great Asset Management and Helpdesk Tool"

What do you like best?

The cloud version of the product has made deployment and maintenance a breeze. We currently use the product mostly as an asset management and internal IT department task management system. The asset management allows us to track and maintain approximately 900 assets that we can query for installed applications, hardware types, AD user, etc. We have used the API to create integration with SQL to allow us to do aging/asset life cycle and other management reports. The service desk has helped our staff manage IT projects and tasks much more effectively. With staff and management reminders and notes for history we are much more accountable.

What do you dislike?

Support in North America has at times been a bit challenging. The company has improved this by adding people in the US. Another thing that has made this less of a problem is the ease of use for the product and also the minimal problems we have had in using the features discussed above. My account representative is awesome as well and has been great at helping me get the help I needed on a couple of occasions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

None in particular.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

One of the problems we are solving is effective management of our assets. We were spending a lot of time and failing a lot at trying to maintain our assets using a database we wrote ourselves. The low cost of SysAid in conjunction with ease of simply installing a client to the desktop to collect and input the data has paid for itself in time saved. The second problem we solved was the accountability we were losing without a system to monitor and track internal IT projects and tasks. We aren't losing track of projects and tasks now. We plan to further implement the product to help reduce helpdesk calls and improve self help features.

Availability for versions for LINUX CENTOS, Sysaid just realeased a new version for Phytom that is not compatible with the last version in linux, and our data can not be transferred to the version of Phytom.

Thats all congratulations.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy of use, based in ITIL and easy to implement.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

ITSM basically and Sysaid has been very important in IT service improvement of this company.

"Nice, reliable product"

What do you like best?

Two guaranteed annual releases for updates, so they are always rolling out new features.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes for support it has been a bit inconvenient due to the timezone distance with the company overseas.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Very flexible product, and I like that we aren't bound to it. Should we decide to not renew (which has NOT been the case, nor will it in the foreseeable future) then we simply would not do so the subsequent year. In addition whereas most companies constantly raise the prices each year, Sysaid has remained pretty consistent since we first went live so I don't feel like they're squeezing us for every dime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Managing end user service requests. Prior to this we did not have a method to manage requests to IT, and this allows us to document each issue, assign adequate resources, and track it to completion, ensuring end user satisfaction each time.

"Sysaid Usage Experience"

What do you like best?

Concerning Sysaid, I like the overall integration of the various functions that the tool has and the ease of implementation and maintenance.

What do you dislike?

Due to the location of their support techs, it can be challenging to work through support issues because of the time difference.

I feel that it is a solid product and offers good functionality for a good price.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Helpdesk done right"

What do you like best?

Custom report ability via SQL and report builder. Extendable to nearly any need. We modified ours to adopt Theory of Constraint management ideas. Alerting and resource monitoring a big plus.

What do you dislike?

JAVA. Single threaded execution via JVM, causes problems sometimes, results in hangs loading big tables.

HTML email display needs some work as well. Email attachment pass through needs some work. Biggest loss of functionality is htmls with attachments.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Be very clear as to what the expectations are and test those expectations properly. If you do not get business buy in to the PROCESS of a helpdesk system, the software will never work for you. You need some kind of gatekeeper to protect your technical resources from the barrage.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Production system monitoring and escalation. End user form based problem submission.

Simplicity for the users. Reporting software is excellent and very configurable.

What do you dislike?

Online interface for creating reports can be slightly overwhelming.

Take the time to learn the ins and outs of all of the features. There are so many tools within the software that you might overlook all of the potential. Poke around with everything.

In a growing business where the culture was always to just walk up to IT and ask for a solution, Sysaid was able to make it extremely straight forward for users to adapt to. This leads to a balanced and organized IT environment.

"Why SysAid?"

What do you like best?

We can now direct support emails to the correct group which has improved response time.

What do you dislike?

We have created a number of Email rules, and after a while have numerous email rules becomes cumbersome. It is difficult to track why a particular email rule has been invoked.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend the Help Desk within SysAid. This combined with the ability to add the Service Request into a Knowledge Base makes resolution of the same issue a lot easier "down the track"

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have streamlined our support process by directing support emails to the relevant groups. After almost 12 months we can now start to get valuable information from the new reporting function.

What do you like best?

You have everything in one place and allows you to stay focused on what you need to do. If you have the ITSM aproach Sysaid helps a lot for everyone ( management, help desk, end user, support staff).

The SLA configuration and compliance helps a lot for the support staff, so they can focus on improve the service.

What do you dislike?

Just minor tweaks for the personalized reports.

CMBD, Help Desk, Asset Inventory, ticket tracking and SLA compliance.

"Great Software and easy to use and install"

What do you like best?

It's Easy to use and has a quickly implement. With the basic packed you have a Fully funcionality for a great Price.

Could exist another ITSM solutions cheapper but, none had a support and a professional services like SysAid.

What do you dislike?

We didn't found anything that dislike us.

Maybe the lack of integration with third party applications, we try to integrate with another SAP and it wasn't ease do it

Obviously, we need to look for profesional services to do it, but we thing that it's normally because SysAid it's Ease of us and is packed full of functionality for that reason and it can't have a natural intration

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

SysAid helps us to quickly implement a help desk management service to our users.

Currently, it has facilitated the implementation of a comprehensive policy governing ITSM and now we can manage all the computers and mobile devices, and measuring suppliers through service-level agreement.

The main improvements of the latest version is the mobile device management and business intelligence which facilitates the monitoring and tracking service

Tracking incidents, we have a zero failure rate of addressing all issues. Asset Management is very good too for tracking our assets, software...etc.

What do you dislike?

Pretty much like everything about SysAid, if you don't want a module then to not acquire it, it's fully customizable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy, simple and customizable so you don't need the full blown out package, you can select modules to suits your business needs.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Asset tracking is great, we do not manually track our assets using excel sheets any longer. Including software licenses as well, now we can run a report in SysAid Reporting and there you go. Send that over to finance and budget is done in a few minutes.

"Great Software - Better Customer Service!"

What do you like best?

-Features: Incredibly powerful and feature rich service desk. If locally hosted you can control virtually every aspect of the service desk and customize it to your liking.

-Customer Support: Amazing customer support and online community. You can tell the team behind SysAid is passionate about their product.

-Price: Comparatively speaking SysAid is equal or lower in annual cost to operate (we use the Cloud edition).

-Reporting: MUCH improved reporting.

-Asset Management: Possibly my favorite feature. SysAid will scan my network and add assets to my service desk. SysAid will alert me when certain events occur with the asset and keep my assets up-to-date.

What do you dislike?

-Lack of integration with third party applications however SysAid is currently working on this. - Ease of use: SysAid is packed full of functionality and it can be a little intimidating or difficult to get setup however the online help and online community make things a much easier.

- Lack of high-level, customizable dashboards which are common with other service desks.

- Lack of email response integration which is common with other service desks. SysAid does integrate with email servers however for email responses to link to the ticket the message must be generated using the messaging system within the service desk. Communication with the end user via an email client will not tie back to the service desk ticket.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First off let me start off with saying that we've have had our issues with SysAid over the years but SysAid has improved leaps and bounds since we decided to go with them and I'm glad we stuck with them despite the issues. We first rolled SysAid out locally and have since migrated to their cloud edition. We utilize almost all of the features offered by SysAid.

What do you like best?

The asset management is our most used feature. The Help Desk uses the asset list to quickly access information about equipment, location and software installed.

What do you dislike?

We would really like to see a feature allowing for equipment or asset history. We often need to know where or who had the equipment previously. Some times this is related Discovery.

"Best IT Helpdesk System"

What do you like best?

The ability to customize the application to fit your company and the way YOU operate. A lot of applications force you to modify workflows and processes to work with their application. SysAid allows you to modify the software to work for you. We have heavily customized the product to allow us to do things that most products on the market would never allow. The SysAid customer service is outstanding and they rarely cannot come up with a solution to any project or issue needed.

What do you dislike?

There is not much to dislike when it comes to SysAid. The one area that causes frustration is onsite customers are always a few versions behind the cloud customers on features. The beta channel is pretty good but the cloud customers see features that take a few cycles before the beta channel sees it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take your time implementing the product and fully think through your processes. If you cannot figure out how the product works contact SysAid Support.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have created an entire ecosystem between our technical support center and our field technicians using SysAid. This allows an end to end solution to provide the best possible experience to our customers. Our process efficiency has almost tripled since we implemented SysAid into our organization.

"Sysaid- A cost effective solution for our environment"

What do you like best?

Works very well out of the box, easy to set-up, did not cost a massive amount, very customizable. Integrated with our domain very well and very rarely just doesn't work for no reason. We have worked with Sysaid several times over the last few years to implement customizations for our business and they have always delivered pretty much exactly what we wanted at a cheap price and in a timely manner.

What do you dislike?

The last few upgrades have introduced some bugs that have caused our admins some troubles, most were fixed within a few releases, but that meant we had some things broken for 3-6 months. In the last year or 2 the response of Sysaid support has been rather sluggish.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We haven't looked at new solutions since we implemented sysaid, but I would say definitely give it a good look, we've been happy with it for the last 4 years and will likely continue on for the foreseeable future.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We had a home grown service desk solution when we implemented Sysaid several years ago. Our old process was painful and both end users and admins hated it. Sysaid remedied that for us with a cost effective and solid service desk solution.

"Great low price solution"

What do you like best?

First, the pricing is great. We started with the smallest version and a few assets/users, and are now trying to leverage the API and optimize the platform. It's a great central point to manage Assets. The technical support is great.

The database is easy to understand, been able to get all data. We created different fields to add custom data, like Asset ID and Reception ID. Synched with Active Directory.

What do you dislike?

The Service Request module is a pain. The email to case screw everything, the request list is pretty hard to customize, and the form... take forever to load. Unable to work when AdBlock is enabled, and it is on majority of my users. The Software management (based on the agent inventory) is unusable. I had to create different web pages, using the API and DB, to have acceptable console. Happy to have Coveo to index it, and make it possible to search.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great for small organization.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

First, it is the Asset Inventory, using both agents and the CI Module.

Second, the service request is used as a DB.

Previously we were using the IT Support Module in SharePoint, and it was a pain. Next, we started using a shared mailbox, but was very hard to know if a case was closed or not. Then switch to SysAid with the Email to case helped with our SLA and Tracking. We now can, based on asset or user, know if there is a pattern.

"SysAid can be a very useful tool."

What do you like best?

I like it that when I am working with someone on an issue they are having I can refer to SysAid to see exactly what I am dealing with in terms of the asset they use. Also I find it extremely helpful to go back to my service requests and see how I fixed an issue when the issue arises again.

What do you dislike?

Lack of interest in using the SysAid Help Desk Tool from our users. Although it is easy for them to use, they would rather call or email the IT department. This is a challenge for us but not the fault of SysAid.

Recommendations to others considering the product

SysAid is a very useful tool to help you keep control of your assets and software installations. And if you set it up, licensing of your software's. I refer to it daily for one thing or another.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to quickly diagnose issues/requests that have come up before because they are right there with just a key word search. Knowing who has what asset and what hardware and software is installed is a major plus for us.

nothing. We were never able to fully roll out because there was always an issue. Product really needs to be installed individually on every device. Remote roll out do not work and they always blame it on Windows.

most everything. particularly the fact it takes over a week to have a support specialist call you if you are having an issue. Most of the time they are not able to resolve it if it is not in their handbook.
