365Ticketing

I would recommend 365Ticketing to anyone who is finding it difficult in managing customer service tickets and tasks using their legacy software. This is the ultimate solution for all of your ticketing management, respecting deadlines and being on top of your deliverables. It is highly versatile and effective in helping you keep tabs on everything from a management perspective as well. 365Ticketing might be less appropriate when you are working internally among your team with fewer client communications - where you want a effective document store and the ability to reference / design and build out flow charts, tech stack diagrams etc. for your typical software / web application development.

Microsoft Parature (Discontinued)

The single element of Parature I've not seen in any other system of this kind is the Download Module. You can post files in the open, or protect them by any number of entitlement methods. The solution is also appealing to those who don't want to manage the back-end/IT needs as it is a hosted solution and has proven to be very reliable.

Pros

365Ticketing

  • It helps in respecting deadlines of the client by effectively managing the tasks as per their priority and due date.
  • Resolves difficulty in effective organization of a zillion tickets that we usually receive for system upgradation.
  • Helps our team be productive and focus on what is important i.e. working on client tasks.
  • Easy to use and scalable.
  • Effective in measuring the utilization and productivity of the team.

  • Clean/Friendly UI. It was extremely easy to navigate around Parature's menus at a high level, and you could take advantage of the more robust features as you became more comfortable and familiar with how Parature operates!
  • Strong Knowledge Base. Writing KB articles or ticket summaries and making use of the search function within Parature allows for expedient recovery of past ticket information. Being able to search for a fix action, or at least a troubleshooting article that can guide you towards a resolution is extremely valuable.
  • Enhanced Notation Capability. Being able to send/post internal or external updates to a ticket is great! You can leave the wordy technical details for other employees while making sure to communicate the high-points and fix action to the end-user.

Cons

365Ticketing

  • User Interface can be designed [to be] a little more intuitive
  • Personalization can be used to help user focus on the tasks they are proficient in, e.g. letting the network admin know what pending and unassigned tickets are related to their field when they are almost caught up with their existing work.
  • Effective timeline management feature can be added to make the tool more comprehensive.

  • Reporting is barebones at best. If you need special reports, we had to go through Parature to have them built.
  • The use of frames on a website is very 1990s. It actually impacts usability of the product, especially when combined with how Parature handled sessions. An engineer could only work one ticket at a time which, honestly, isn't very realistic for a busy support team that is working on several issues at a time.
  • Support was often unresponsive when contacted for unplanned problems.
  • The knowledge base was not very friendly for clients and it provided no real encouragement for it to be used.
  • It took several clicks to do something as simple as edit and assign a ticket or to close a ticket.

It was bulky, cumbersome, and didn't allow us to handle the volume of cases we received on a daily basis. Many of our issues were highly technical in nature and we would often need to work on 2 or 3 at once. The poor design choices prevented this, which was unfortunate.

They recently had one very extended outage. It was a data center issue - but they were not diversified enough so in the end the system was down for almost 8 hours. There are also periods of time where for no reason the system simply doesn't respond. This small outages are usually short (just a few minutes), and have in fact been occurring less often, so it appears some corrective actions have been taken.

Alternatives Considered

365Ticketing

The 365Ticketing tool seems to be a good option for us compared to alternatives that we have used up till now - primarily because it has the right number of features that are required for effective ticket management, not too many to overwhelm our platform admin and team and not too few where we would have do most of the organizational tasks. It has got everything you would need for collaborating with your customer effectively and be always on top of your game in helping your clients with all they need.

There are services that do bits and pieces of what Parature does. We liked the idea of having one service that meets our needs
