Agiloft Flexible Service Desk Suite

Agiloft is most suited to meeting the needs of an organization that requires rapid and frequent process changes for critical processes, and values empowering the people who do the job to determine how best to automate it - essentially rapidly growing, democratic organization.It's hard to imagine an inappropriate scenario to use Agiloft, but one that comes to mind is organzations requiring a complete, finished, highly structured solution that they do not want to change over time. Agiloft is designed with the expectation that clients will adapt it to their needs so many functions are left undone, rather than throwing a "kitchen sink" at the customer and letting them choose what they need.The best way to work with Agiloft is to take the training class, then have a small success with a small team, involving the employees and first level management in the deployment. They'll tell everyone else how much they like it. This reduces the possibility of slow development cycles and an undue dependence on outside expertise, while maximizing the return on Agiloft's investment in easy customizability.

It is very useful if a customer isn't quite sure what they want, and prefer not to speak to a member of our sales team directly. It is less useful for our experienced knowledgeable customers.

Pros

  • Easy coding-free customization and process-oriented customization interface allows us to delegate ownership of business processes to the layer of management closest to the users of the services Agiloft provides, allowing us to rapidly adapt to new business needs and avoid expensive and slow professional-service based development cycles or a dedicated in-house admin team.
  • Extremely flexible, so we are starting to use it for all kinds of things that we never originally intended it for, including managing change control for our customers, contract management, etc. People in our organization tell each other how effective the tool is which encourages using it to solve problems.
  • The product is clearly designed with forethought and ingenuity, which pays off repeatedly when trying to address a new application. The cleverness of coding-free customization endears it to its administrators.
  • High quality support and professional services from a well-trained onshore team are available so we never felt as though Agiloft stood in the way of implementation.
  • Though we have only minimal usage so far, Agiloft offers a lot of different ways to interface to other systems, which will keep it relevant as we build out our automation and encourages us to use it as a central repository that can be easily accessed, processed, and modified as necessary, enabling its automation features to make good decisions that support automated service delivery to our clients.

Cons

  • Its feature set is so complete, we have yet to find it missing something that we needed.
  • I wish we could automatically transition our CRM from Salesforce into Agiloft

  • The price is on the high end. We use a good part of our web growth budget on just AnswerDash.
  • I really have no other complaints. Although expensive, it's worth every penny.
  • We have had 0% negative feedback from our customers regarding AnswerDash.

Usability

Based on 2 answers
For the most part, it is an easy and intuitive system to use. There are many small things that could be improved to make the system work even easier. However, overall it is very easy to use if you have a good grasp on computer programs and using them to build things. I do not have any computer science or programming background, and I am able to use this system with few problems.

We get excellent expert support whenever we need it, which is rarely because usually we can easily figure out what to do without needing help.

Alternatives Considered

We find Agiloft dramatically easier to customize than Salesforce, which we have found rather limiting and awkward. Plus Agiloft has a considerably lower price.

AnswerDash is the first of its kind that we as a company have had the pleasure of implementing.

Return on Investment

  • We have used it for many years for our bug/issue tracking, smoothly and efficiently.
  • For our knowledgebase application, we were able to develop it about five times faster than if we had to program it using conventional tools.

  • It has freed up a great amount of time for our sales team.
  • The sales team is able to focus on acquiring new clientele resulting in greater sales numbers company-wide.
  • The sales team can also make a greater number of repeat up-sells and add-on sales when the customers don't feel like they are being taken advantage of.
