iSupport had a lot of wonderful features, but it started to get very slow.

Overall an awesome product that delivers a tried and tested ticketing system.

Pros

A lot of awesome functionality. Mass manipulation of tickets and linking tickets to together in parent-child relationships.

Cons

Speed was awful after using it for about a year with 1500-2000 users submitting tickets daily. even with the added customization. Their support was difficult to contact at times.

Very user friendly ticket handling software

We manage the helpdesk ticketing system using this software and extend an experience to smoothly submit, track status of the tickets submitted by users.

Pros

Features such as mySupport, Chat ability with users. Ability to use same software for multiple work items including problems, incidents, projects, purchase etc..Very user friendly to manage and administer for administrators of the company it serves.

Cons

A lot of limitations to the use of the application. They try to fulfill some of the needs of the users/clients in upcoming releases but still far away from being the most intuitive system.

iSupport provides a feature-filled, if somewhat immature ticketing system

Pros

1. There is a ton of customizability and features
2. Works "out of the box" fairly well
3. Has a lot of functionality and could be used for a variety of environments
4. Interface is fairly modern in looks, although more to say on this in the "cons" section
5. Tons of data and reporting available

Cons

1. While there is a lot of customizability and features, they are difficult to configure
2. The interface is fairly modern in how it looks, but clunky in design. The recent UI overhaul made it somewhat more difficult to use. They need to invest in some better UI design
3. Difficult to create reports and new views
4. Good software if you have the resources to customize, not great if your admins are not tech savvy
5. The user-facing portal is ugly and very difficult to manage

iSupport Review

I like the features and only know I scratch the surface. I tried to explore the support to find tutorials and documentation, but haven't been successful.

Pros

The functionality is great. There are so many features. Working with the layout for the portal in MySupport is user friendly.

Cons

I am new at using iSupport on a back-end level. I am seeing the many functions, but I feel we only use a small percentage of what is available because of the time it takes to learn and implement all the features. This tool can be overwhelming. I have to work on it regularly, otherwise I forget, but I am new and haven't had formal training.

I would recommend iSupport to any company looking for a work-tracking solution.

Pros

It's very stable, customizable, and easy to use and understand. Most updated and changes are only a few clicks and they're done.

Cons

It is lacking some features that myself and others agree aren't too much to ask. For example, the ability to backdate a ticket if it is put here after its original occurrence.

Best Helpdesk Software Handdown!

Pros

I like the ability to do just about anything you can imagine. Updates are small and quick, free training all the time, Enhancement requests are actually looked out and almost all are implemented.

Cons

I have not found anything that I don't like about the product. We have been using this product for going on 3 years now.

Decent Ticketing System

iSupport is a web based ticketing system that you can use for incident management and project management. It also has a Knowledgebase piece, but after an update it stopped working at a company I worked for.

YMCA review from Information Systems

Overall, one of the best help desk systems I've worked with.

Pros

Fairly intuitive and easy to customize views. Good automation options for workflow notifications.

Cons

Some options seems global to company, maybe not to different departments. Thinking mostly around notification options. Most reports are too basic and not useful, some are good. Would be great to be able to manipulate existing reports as save as copies without having to purchase advanced reporting tools.

Great product, but still needs additional features

I would recommend iSupport.

Pros

The interface is great from a user standpoint.

Cons

The ticket system if heavily geared toward external customers, but it would be helpful to have additional features and tools for companies who use iSupport for internal customers. There is currently no capability to present dashboards to all of the end users.

Wish I had more room for TRUE review...

Honestly we have dumped the End User Desktop as a portal and have instead implemented a Joomla Portal and "plugged in" the incident submission and view open incidents because the front-end is too weak when compared to what else is out there. That being said we also use it internally. The FAQ has been changed since (possibly before 7.6) and it is still broken. If you are supporting external customers with SLAs then this product is great. If you are supporting internal customers then this product can be difficult to wrap your head around but it can work and work well. The reporting is there and is solid. The good thing about this product is it is so solid that you don't have to worry about it. You can set it up and it works just as well today as it did when it was installed years ago. The support is amazing and they are always willing to work with you even when the circumstance may seem a little out of their scope. I recommend this product 100%.

Pros

CUSTOMER SERVICE!
I have been with GWI since release 4.0 (still have my mini admin guide and such). Every issue I have had was able to be fixed. Not only that but they remotely connected into my box and fixed it for me.
There are a lot of features in their product and they continually are looking inward to their customers for ideas for new features.
The product is VERY VERY STABLE. I don't think I've had to ever reboot the server from anything GWI related.
Finally with 9.0 GWI has brought support for Firefox, Safari and Chrome.

Cons

IN MY INSTALLATION...
The product is built (really) for EXTERNAL customers who have signed up for X,Y or Z service agreement.
In our installation our customers are internal and so there are quite a few of the features that we simply cannot use like Workflow Templates and SLAs.
Also you get into a situation where Hierarchy Templates are not usable because they are not launched via the normal ticket entry so for my installation I have to create a menu structure with hundreds of templates for each of my uses. This is not good for a department of 2 that supports over 300 users and over 1200 devices total.
The last thing I would like to say is that I am still waiting for them to connect a person to an asset when a ticket is submitted. So in other words when a user visits the End User Desktop from computer X there is no way to tell that they submitted the ticket from computer X and not Y. We have users that move around and I've been looking for this for years.

Most of our clients use our solution for internal ITSM. We would be happy to schedule some time to go over how you have iSupport set up to find ways to better fit that need in your environment.

Excellent Service Management Tool

c.Support has been our Service Management tooling for over 10 years now. Over that period the tooling has been our most stable business application. Because of the ease of setup and customizability we have been able to implement the entire Tooling internally without the need for workarounds or customized options.

Pros

- Ease of setup
- 100% Web-based, multiple browsers
-Completely customizable to your own needs
-includes CMDB and auto asset scanning (agent-less)
-Excellent support

Cons

- no CLI features
- no billing features

Full of great features and great support

Go get it. It's a great product. (No, I don't work there!)

Pros

Full featured, including helpdesk, change, assets. Uses LDAP to connect to our Active Directory. Extendable and fully customizable. The customer support from GWI is some of the best I've ever come across... they are fast to respond and very knowledgable. Price is reasonable especially considering the features.

Cons

Can't think of any Really.

Great Product!

A good product especially for smaller companies that don't want the overhead of some of the larger products.

Pros

We've been using it since c.Support 2003. It was easy to get setup and the training experience was well done. It's easy to use. Upgrading has been quick and easy. Any time we've required technical support, I've found the support team knowledgeable and friendly, and quick to respond.

Cons

The asset management component hasn't really worked for us.

GWI Software--Value and Performance

Highly recommend for any size company.

Pros

Web based software is easy to configure and offers access across a company WAN. Flexible enough for any type of business. Technical support is very responsive and thorough. The follow up is also a welcome benefit. We reviewed more than a few products and GWI has met every expectation. We're glad we chose iSupport.

Cons

Takes a little knowledge to install, but the documentation is good and tech support is there if you need it.

I support9

Isupport as whole is a great product for a small to medium size business. It has the functionality of some of the larger products without the huge implentation strategy. It has worked great for us and I would recommend for anyone that needs a easy to setup feature rich product.

Pros

easy to upgrade
new charts and gauges
multiple email addresses

Cons

Needs more reporting around surveys
Need to be able to mass upload catagories by spreadsheet.
need to be able to customize portal more

Very Easy

I would recommend this product because of all of the features are in one product

Pros

We have had versions 9.0 since December and we really like it. I was part of the team to implement the product and found it really easy. Now that we have been working on it for 4 months I can see all of the benefits offered.

Cons

I don't like that there is no single tab to open an incident it's just a little thing but I am used to just clicking once to get to an blank incident

Does the job and does it well

Total recomendation - it's a great product and we've had no problems in the years we've had the product.

Pros

We've been using Csupport, now called Isupport for a couple years now and its been really good. It's one of those products that you use and it just works, and since you never really have any trouble, you almost forget it's there. The couple times i've had trouble with an upgrade, their tech support has been pretty much perfect, they're willing to bend over backwards to make you happy. I only wish that some of my other software products were so good...

Cons

Although it's been improved greatly from earlier versions, it would be cool if it had better graphs and charts to show workflow and productivity.
