Best Part of Vivantio has been the Approval Process

Pros

Our company uses this software internally. So our employees are our customers, so to speak. I was able to configure the workflows to assign tasks to other employees to provide approval for things such as hardware/software purchases, access to our software systems, new employees, etc. Regular employees do not require a license to perform these approval tasks, which was not the case in the competing software. Also, the Self Service portal turned out so beautiful and useful to our employees. We get really good feedback from users. Customer representatives are very hands on and helpful. I have admin'd other software and while other, more popular software has more documentation, their reps are non-existent.

Cons

The set up is very dependent on the Vivantio reps, and the self-help for configuration is not very useful. The reps do a fantastic job of leading the new user through configuration but some people like to do that themselves. I have admin'd other software and while other more popular software has more documentation, their reps are non-existent.

Reasons for Choosing Vivantio

None of these had an approval process that fit our needs. There is a real lack of product out there for use in a small/medium-sized company where the employees are the customer. Too many employee approvers for a licenses for everyone (ZenDesk's approach was too costly, Jira was too expensive for all of our employees to be included as users and the approval process wasn't intuitive, Zoho was too expensive and didn't have the features needed for employees to approve work requested of the IT department by other employees.) so in the end, despite some issues with configuration not being intuitive, I was able to build a process that meets our needs 90-95% of the time.

Reasons for Switching to Vivantio

Vivantio is more configurable, and we were able to build a better approval process.

Excellent Product Support but lacking finer details

Vivantio offers a ITIL service desk software that we use for software support. In general I have found the solution not very user friendly and in the last 3 years of using it, I found that little has changed to the basic user functionality to improve this despite many feature requests to aid this. A key example of this is that, in 2017, it is still not possible for all emails in the system to show the pictures that are embedded. In the past, we have found that the quality of the software updates to the system lacking basic QA process and it has become quite simple to find bugs in the new features. I would say that the support team is very good at getting back to you within half a business day and providing us with workarounds of problems that we have highlighted.

Pros

User Support, Workflow module

Cons

GUI, speed of page loads, lack of updates to key functionality

Good value for money ITSM Tool for ITIL based Service Desks

I have had limited experience with Vivantio technical support and after sales however the interactions that I had were pleasant and prompt. I have attended a handful of user groups over the years with former colleagues and the owners and developers that I talked to were very open and receptive to user feedback and seemed genuinely interested in their users. Vivantio are a small enough organisation to have a relatively personal interaction level to their user base which is nice as it makes you feel more valued and appreciated as opposed to larger corporations which have a far more clinical approach.

Pros

I used Vivantio daily for 6 years and whilst the Organisation that I worked for did not take full advantage of all it had to offer the main features within the software that we did use were great. The user interface is simple and straightforward and doesn't take a lot of time to pick up, it is reasonably configurable to your specific organisation however the main layout is entirely ITIL based split into Service Requests, Incidents, Problems etc meaning if you do not follow this framework then it may not be the best tool for you. It has all the features that most users would need from an ITSM Tool such as asset management, reporting, raising support calls, CRM management, self service user interface etc. As I have had limited experiences with other ITSM and CRM software I cannot fully compare its functionality with others however I personally found it did everything I needed it to. Vivantio offer both managed and self managed versions of the software depending on the size of your Organisation and the expertise you have available. I left the Organisation before their full implementation of the latest version of Vivantio (Flex) so cannot speak fully about that but from what I did use of it I found it very intuitive and time saving. Overall I recommend Vivantio as a company and their ITSM suite of tools offer excellent value for money in my opinion.

Cons

There is nothing that I particularly disliked about the software itself.

Our IT support staff use this software to manage helpdesk calls efficiently, great for all businesse

: Vivantio is a great (ITSM) system for helpdesk and support teams, the system itself comes with a full set of configurable tools, log Incident calls, setting team tasks, problem management/change control/knowledge base, this is a product that fits in for both businesses that practice ITIL and for small businesses. the software itself is very configurable allowing the software to fit in with the business support strategy. users are notified and updated in relation to there logged call keeping the user in the loop. The look of the web interface is great, easy to follow and calls are easy to read. if an incident requires more than one team with the Vivantio system it is possible to easily set other IT support teams a set of subtasks that may be required to complete a solution, so many tasks can be assigned to one incident creating a master call in effect.

Pros

This software offers lot's of functionality, the client management features allows interaction with external and internal clients, calls can be managed easily and end users can track their own updates and call status. We find that Active Directory / LDAP Integration is most useful making it easy to configure and are able to use our own AD security groups to configure permissions to access ITSM We are able to manage end users incidents via Incident Management, offers great functionality keeping the user up to date with the progress of their call working towards a remedy, with automatic notifications when the call has been updated with new information with the Problem Management feature we are able to easily keep records of current workarounds that have been implemented until a more permanent fix has been sourced. Change Management - We use this for major changes to the network with our network team, and much more listed below. Ticket Templates Automated Ticket Routing Built in Reports Service Level Agreements (SLA) Asset Management / CMDB Asset Audit Trail Custom Report Builder Data Export (PDF, XML, CSV) Business Rules Engine Automated Escalation Rules Self-Service Web Portal Tasking Customizable Views Build-in Interactive Reports Custom Reports Builder Service Level Man

Cons

some features don't allow multiple close on calls, so if there are lots of tasks closing them in one go can't be done.
