Great Ticketing System

Their customer service is very quick and responsive, it is a very easy to use application and most importantly, helpful!

Pros

This software is pretty easy to use as a ticketing system. It provides parent-child ticket relationships that help you keep track of all tasks per department.

Cons

The minor thing that limits a user to get the full benefit of the software is that currently we are unable to assign checklists to particular child tickets.

web help desk itsm

this helps with project control as well as user support. it helps us keep tabs on everything.

Pros

we use this product for trouble tickets as well as change management. once users adapted to the process it provided clarity to who truly owned a project and allowed the approval process to be streamlined

Cons

the cost for user licenses wasn't cheap. some customization options are not as clear as they could be. It took a while to find the features we wanted.

I'm an IT Analyst who uses the software to service support requests.

Greater level of detail included in helpdesk tickets. Ability for end users to enter their own helpdesk tickets without going through our offshore helpdesk team.

Pros

The level of detail available for users to include when entering tickets. Though I don't have much experience on the administrative side of the software, it seems to be pretty flexible and robust in terms of configuration and customization.

Cons

Lack of integration with other services, including other SolarWinds applications such as Alert Central.

Pretty simple helpdesk software if you are not looking to have many features

Pros

Easy to use, not much to it if you want something easy. Interface is easy to use and get around right off the bat so you don't waste time trying to figure things out.

Cons

Not enough features to really be able to manage a large scale network. I used it with Activity Monitor and it seems like they need to focus a little more on the functionality on their software.

Easy to use after you get the hang of it.

Pros

At first, it can be a little difficult to use Solarwinds Web Help Desk. But after you give it some time, it becomes pretty easy to use. It is fairly customizable and decently fast as well.

Cons

It has a bit of a learning curve. The user interface isn't extremely pleasing to the eye. It would be nice if it had a built in chat option, or the ability to directly contact the customer through the tickets and log the conversation for future reference.

Best Ticketing system

Pros

It's great how this software can not only be used for tickets but for parts and inventory too. One other big feature is that you can create FAQ's from within your tickets

Cons

The biggest downfall is sometimes the support is not always the greatest and it does not intergrate with Jamf software very well.

Good Central Management System

Good Ticketing/Asset Management Solution

Pros

I like that WHD is very straightforward to use and is very stable. It integrates with Single Sign On with Windows.

Cons

Some UI querks are annoying especially navigating in assets. Sometimes when clicking back, you don't get back to where you really want to be.

Solarwinds Web Help Desk Review

A lightweight combination of help desk and asset management features, SolarWinds Web Help Desk lacks a few features that larger organizations will need, but makes up for it with an easy-to-use user interface. Costwise, it is not very expensive. Other compeititors such as LANDesk, Track It! are more robust and has more features out of the box. Pricewise, it is a lot cheaper.

Pros

Customers can get up & running in less than four hours. Navigating is easy, with large buttons and text. Scheduling reports is easy and shows a history. It is a web-hosted solution with support.

Cons

It does not track installed licenses. Depreciation is not built in. The application is lack of robust and not very customizable out of the box.

Very robust software for the administration of the functions of a Helpdesk

In general, it is a very good tool for controlling tickets, SLA and tracking the operation.

Pros

It is a very intuitive and easy to use application, both for technical staff and users when creating tickets.
The graphical interface is very friendly.

Cons

Some configurations are a bit complicated, as is working with a parent ticket.
Web use sometimes gets a bit slow, but it can be because of the connection

Easy To Setup and Train End Users to Use

Pros

Has tons of features and functionality AND it is easy to setup and utilize all of them. From start to full web help desk completion, it took roughly two weeks (not day to day) and it was fully setup and being used by all company staff to submit tickets, approve tickets, and for tech staff to reply and resolve tickets.

Cons

Depending on how many techs you want to utilize the Web Help Desk it can become pricey. We only had 5-7 techs at any given time so the cost was not that bad.

Great Inventory and Ticketing System

Pros

Super easy to navigate, and understand. Took me only a few days to understand fully how to get our ticketing system to work.

Cons

Few bugs in the software, not sure if it's the version I'm on, but very little to complain about. Does exactly what you need, and then some.

Ticket Tracking with Webhelpdesk. Easily submit and resolve issues with ticketing system

We easily are able to track resolution of issues and pull reports in order to look at trends.

Pros

Able to look up ticket type, or ticket content for repeat issues. Track issues by who submits them easily by searching. Setup custom requirements for ticket submission. Easily integrate it with Solarwinds to create tickets when there are issues on network. It can also be connected to Exchange to send out email notifications.

Cons

It appears that it cannot send email notifications to Distro lists. Setting up tech alerts can be quite complicated to get everything configured the way you want it to.

Easy, Customizable and Straight-Forward

Pros

Web Helpdesk is a clean, crisp web-based product. As a tech, I can access my tickets on the go. The system is highly customizable (from reports to layout).

Cons

There are a few features it lacks. One such minor feature is the ability to generate a PO and attach said PO to an asset.

Web Help Desk simply put saves your bacon...

Pros

End to end is one of the best Help desk solutions i have used. I find the ticketing straight forward, the asset tracking awesome, the integration with AD and Solarwinds is great, it even does Knowledge base and surveys.

Cons

I wish it did a better job with parent / child tickets. The calendar is kind of pointless. It needs to sync with the technicians Exchange calendar, and there is no customization of the admin interface for like a Skin, you can not for admin purposes change the Logo. The users side can be modified but not admin.

Great solution with low cost

Tracking of IT issues, tracking of trends

Pros

Ease of use, end users like the ease of submitting tickets by just sending an email through Outlook.

Cons

Some of the back end setting could use a little refining to make things more streamlined. Otherwise a good solution.
