About ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus

ServiceDesk Plus is a help desk management platform. It includes core help desk and IT management applications, as well as project management, contract management and features for ITIL (information technology infrastructure library) compliance. ServiceDesk Plus incorporates tools to help users establish process automation. It offers an automatic ticket dispatch function, which distributes new tickets to technicians based on their existing caseload and availability. This helps to manage staff workloads while minimizing the accumulation of unassigned tickets and the service degradations they can cause. Other tools include asset management, a knowledge base builder, project management functions and service level agreement management. Further automation is provided by the "business rules" feature included with ServiceDesk Plus. This allows tickets to be automatically classified, categorized, prioritized and assigned based on a variety of dynamic criteria or rules. ServiceDesk Plus is available as an on-premise installation or as a cloud-hosted service with ServiceDesk Plus On-Demand.

Good IT Ticking system

The easy and fast way to have the configuration done and running. The web interface and mobile work are fantastic.

The integration with the rest of the applications Zoho and ManageEngine have. Easy to set up and fast to be deployed.

ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus: A Comprehensive ITSM Solution

Our overall experience with ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus has been positive. The software has been reliable and has allowed us to streamline our IT service management processes. The cost is a bit of a barrier, but the features and capabilities that it offers make it worth the investment.

Pros

ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus is an invaluable asset to our organization. Its intuitive user interface and comprehensive feature set make it easy to track, manage, and report on IT service requests. Automation capabilities, such as self-service portals, allow users to quickly submit and track their requests, while IT staff can quickly access and respond to service requests. The reporting capabilities are robust and allow us to quickly assess the performance of our IT services.

Cons

One of the drawbacks of ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus is the cost. For a comprehensive ITSM solution, it can be quite pricey. Additionally, it does not offer a lot of customizability in terms of the user interface, which can be a bit of a challenge for users who are accustomed to a certain workflow.

Way better Service Desk applications out there

Pros

When it comes to bare basics, ServiceDesk Plus can get the job done. The sorting by order of attributes is easy enough. Simple ticket resolution is easy enough. Inputting attributes such as location and the nature of the request is easy enough. Picking up unassigned requests is easy. The asset search function is actually quite useful when doing a quick track of company assets.

Cons

The search function is nearly useless and if you have a LOT of tickets in the immediate archive, good luck finding it. The inability to search tickets by requester name is non-existent, the inline reply of ticket requests is extremely limited to the point that you might as well simply contact the client directly through your own company email rather than SDP itself.

Robust, easy to use, fully-featured IT Help Desk software

Pros

The ease of use, both for IT Management (setup) and continual tweaking and adjusting and product improvements is impressive. For support staff, it's easy to use and navigate and has everything at ones fingertips.

Cons

There's some redundancy that seems unnecessary, when entering info into fields that are not customizable. Also, inventory tracking connected to Desktop Central (now Endpoint Central) is hit and miss and when moving from either instance's on-prem to cloud, things break and assets have to be re-entered, but end up having the cloud cutover date, not the original asset acquired date. Something to keep in mind when planning lifecycle.

A very customizable ITSM tool

ServiceDesk Plus is a great ITSM software that help us offer and attend the end users' requests/incidents. We started using the Standard edition and now we use the Enterprise edition. You can increase the modules in time, is not mandatory to purchase the most complete edition at first.

Pros

The interface is very friendly, you don't need to have so many knowledge about ITIL and ServiceDesk Plus will help you to improve your Help Desk service.

Cons

The ZIA bot that is bundled only works in english, there are so many customers that needs spanish support and ZIA doesn't support it.

Reasons for Choosing ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus

The interface of ServiceDesk Plus is most friendly for the end users and technicians.
