    The overall product works well with the university. It allowed for the IT department to keep a record of IT related problems as well as known solutions.

    Pros

    The qualities I like most are personalization of the page, the easy access to admin components, and the customer service agents.

    Cons

    The software could provide more accessible mobile app

    Pros

    We could communicate with users through the service desk, add attachments, customise the overview screen of tickets (such as the columns). The change management features were quite good, allowing for manager approvals and private work notes to be added into the ticket.

    Cons

    The Knowledge Articles wysiwyg editor wasn't very good. Copying and pasting content from a word document to the editor often resulted in images and numbering being all over the place.

    I was looking for a new helpdesk app for my company and I found freshservice to offer all the features we required.

    Pros

    FreshService is very feature rich and highly customizable.

    Cons

    The price is a bit steep for my liking but it is the average price for similar products.

    Pros

    You can link Jira tickets. The Jira integration is quite advanced, it can pull Jira projects, statuses, metadata etc.

    Cons

    It's a bit confusing: When you see the ticket you can add "a note" and you can add "a reply" and you can "open a discussion". The difference between them is not clear.

    The search is very basic. You can't do complex queries like "show me all the tickets for the last month assigned to me which have status "Not resolved".

    The workflow is basic, there are statuses, categories, labels etc. At the same time, the screen is cluttered with different buttons: You can click "edit" ticket, you can click "change" ticket and you can click "update" the ticket. Why do we need all three, what's the difference between "changing", "updating" and "editing"?

    Works well out of the box but can easily customise to make simple work flows. Integrates with a bunch of other apps, base tier is free with everything you need as a small business and as you grow it's very affordable.

    Cons

    Haven't come across anything yet that would make me jump to someone else. Waiting for their Freshsales to get meatier to use together.

    running the support desk, with minimum effort.

    Pros

    Easy onboarding of the agents and linking the uses/requesters with the different connectors available. The system has many ways to report support ticket (the web UI, sending an email, or use the mobile App) the same can be said about handling ticket from the agents. The built-in reports are enough to satisfy the need of running services and keeping your SLA in check.

    Cons

    the Payment model is on an agent and likes to see it build on site. this way the system will be more fitting the small to med size deployments.

    I liked the way we could tie our assets with users and easily track a support history. That made it easier to see past issues in a chronological order.

    Cons

    It had a hard learning curve. Didn't understand many of the terms used in the program so that took a while to learn.

    Pros

    Customer Service is very responsive, especially to development works and new feature requests. ITAM software has enough features for it help manage inventory and assets.

    Cons

    Still playing catchup with industry leaders for Helpdesk and ITAM solutions. Lack of integration with financial/accounting softwares. Lack of integration with Zendesk and other helpdesk softwares discourages users from only using a certain part of the Freshservice solution (i.e. only as ITAM or only as Helpdesk).

    Great IT management and reporting tool

    Value for Money
    Pros

    The freshservice agent is really easy to install. On our company, we use it as an asset management tool and every time a new worker is enrolled we install it on their computer. You don't need to set anything else up as the installation package already has all the details it needs. As soon as it's installed it starts collecting useful data that will then be reported to the IT managers.

    Of course, this data does not breach any privacy regulations and only states information related to the computer itself in terms of firmware being up to date or any potentially harmful software being installed on the machine.

    Reports can be set up to be generated and sent to you periodically for your convenience.

    Cons

    One of the major cons of this tool is that it may be harder to customise if you are planning to have it set up on a big company. For that, though, there is an enterprise solution that could fit any purpose but comes with an added price to pay.

    We switched from Autotask which was too costly for us. Freshservice allowed us to cut costs practically to zero and also introduced automatic asset tracking for some of our clients' equipment. Another great feature is the ability to use keyboard shortcuts that allows me to do my work faster.

    Pros

    It's quite easy to set up and start using. We really like the asset management feature - it's helpful to be able to assign tickets to devices so that later we can spot trends. Freshservice didn't have on time tracking feature that we wanted and their support team was very helpful in implementing a custom solution for us. The ability to have 3 agents for free is incredible for small shops that are just starting.

    Cons

    It currently lacks integration with one of our monitoring tools so we spend quite some time closing tickets that are no longer valid but that will be solved in the future. It's great they support multiple languages but would appreciate if they provided email notification templates in each of the languages they support.

    I will be able to manage requests for technical support efficiently and I will be able to track issues related to a specific computer or to a type of computer or to our network.

    Pros

    It's really robust and scaleable, they have several different levels so you don't end up paying for services you don't need. It's flexible enough so you could fit it into any business model.

    Cons

    The software is difficult to set up and configure. But, there is a lot of help. There are PDF guides you can download and videos you can watch. Their chat support is great (I just got off a conference call with an agent who could not figure out my issue over chat. I was able to share my screen and we figured it out really quickly.

    Pros

    Great service desk with all the features you could possibly want and they continue to add more. I began using this when it first was released. Over the last 3-4 years they have added a number of excellent features and they always seem to be releasing more. It integrates will lots of other applications from social media to CRM. Has SLA management, agent collision, service catalog, asset reporting, and can be used for incident, problem, change, release, etc management.

    Cons

    Once you stop using the free plan it can be a little more expensive than other service desk offerings out there.

    This product runs smoothly, I wasn't in the team who made the purchase, neither was I in the original team who set up the program but I am editing it to fit some other needs we require.

    Cons

    The product is not as customizable as I thought it would be. I need multiple forms for different use cases not necessarily just one form, the dynamic feature does help but I don't like the work around that I'm being forced to do in order to achieve what I want. If I could add my own custom css/html/php it would be nice, though I have not tried i'm sure it's not a capability.

    Fresh is eager to implement cool new features. Sometimes this functionality is not completely mature yet.

    Ease of use... My time is limited and I dont want to spend much time managing tickets. Freshservice makes it easy for me to do everything in one place.

    Pros

    I love the user interface and it's ease of use. When I work on tickets I want to quickly manage them and the Freshservice interface allows me to do everything in one place.

    Cons

    I honestly dont have any dislikes. It is leaps and bounds better than the previous system we used. We used Sysaid previously and the interface was not intuitive or easy.
