Agiloft is great for tracking events and recording the process to close the event out thoroughly and efficiently.

It is well suited for a service-based department, but it can sometimes offer confusion for non-technical users because of the amount information the form fields require. Most customers don't want to write the equivalent of a book to simply say that " I want to obtain a license of Adobe Acrobat and charge it to the department."

Pros

  • Personalize for "US"
  • Very Easy to Use

  • Documentation is very important for any technology department. We can easy attach quotes, screenshots of issues, or invoices so that any one looking at the work order once closed can see that the task was completed quickly or may require more resources if needed again.
  • Tracking the progress of your team is also important when considering pay scales or promotions. Reports help you see which employees are going above and beyond and those that are needing extra motivation.
  • Universities have to work as cohesive unit to be successive. Our customers tell is us what is needed for them to do their jobs and we are able to divide the work amongst our staff to continue the quest quickly.

Cons

  • They could build a slicker look to the graphical charts output for the reports. These look a bit dated, and I would like the ability to customize them more.
  • I find that some features of the tool are difficult to find, and aren't necessarily in the most common sense of places. This definitely eases with experience with the tool, but initially it will take some time just to figure out the setup of the tool and where things are located. For example, permissions can be set on many different levels, which is great, but logically finding where to find the differing permission levels is difficult at first. I would suggest attending their admin training session to initiate yourself with the tool at first, so you're not as reliant on Agiloft initially to guide you in building the tool, which can get expensive.

  • Customization without the need for lengthy contacts with tech support. Non-technical team members should be able to resolve malfunctions with the interface and its components.
  • A mobile app would make resolving work orders in the field easier. Without the need for a PC-like device to access the program. Many times, weather conditions are not kind to tablets. A cell phone is more reasonable.

It definitely works for what we need and is the best product for us. Also, I can't imagine many companies can offer support as great as they do.

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

I was not in the selection process to choose a vendor, so I cannot comment on this.

There has been less downtime due to incompatible upgrade elements in our environment. EasyVista is takes hours not days to troubleshoot and resolve any functionality errors. Tech Support has been more helpful and reachable.

Return on Investment

  • Increased efficiency on certain processes. Our time sheets were done previously in excel spreadsheets, which HR had to constantly remind everyone to do because they hated it. We created a tool for logging time sheets which is much easier and faster to do, and now employees don't dread it (as much). We also use print templates to automatically create documents to send to our clients, which previously had to be created manually. It also allows for information to be viewed at anytime, instead of waiting for someone to close a document first.
  • Linking together of information, and having one place for everything. Previously, we never had one place to store information and records. We had one place for this information, another for that information, and sometimes information went to one place and sometimes in some other place. We also used different tools for different things. Emails for this, our wiki for that, an excel spreadsheet for this other thing. Agiloft has allowed us to have one place where employees will go to do everything from requesting vacation days to doing tasks related to our product, to recognizing another employee's accomplishments.
  • Decreased efficiency on certain processes. However, there is a silver lining to this. These processes were previously as simple as you can get - logging information into a text file, which is then added to by other employees. There were no controls, no major checks, and things could easily be missed. Agiloft's system allows us to do things so that everything stands out and is seen, checked, and recorded in a much better way. The trade off for less efficiency is tough, but it will be worth it in the long run as we are more effective and accurate.

  • Our turnaround time has decreased steadily use implementing use.
  • Our CIO is update on the progress of his team at all times.
  • The customers feel better informed about their requests from start to finish.
