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.

Lansweeper

Because of its slowdown as we have acquired more equipment, I think LANSweeper may be better suited for smaller environments. We have 3000+ users and over 1500 devices on our WAN. It has shown considerable performance issues as we have grown. Maybe moving it to a full blown SQL instance will make things a bit better. But as it stands, it has gotten tiresome waiting for it to update and refresh.

Pros

  • Fully GUI based interface that has drastically reduced the time to add new features/workflows.
  • The product was very easy to deploy and add features like Single-Sign On and user provisioning from our internal DataWarehouse. Again, vendor support was a big help while implementing those features.
  • The workflows include a very comprehensive rule-based system that can trigger various actions like escalations, emails, changes of request state and more. All without any coding. Again, fully GUI based.

Cons

  • Feasible Training Opportunitied

  • Ease of use - pushing software can be a complicated process.
  • Detecting assets sometimes means going to each machine on opening ports on the firewall.
  • Reporting can be hard to figure out but you can ask on their forum. I find that a lot of my questions already have been asked.

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.

The price to function scale is so far towards function it would be stupid to get rid of it

Usability

Agiloft Flexible Service Desk Suite7.3
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

N/A - Agiloft was already chosen as the tool we were going to use (by an employee that has now left the company) before I was given the assignment of working on this

Lansweeper is great for what it does at its price point. However, it has nothing on LabTech. I have been spoiled by the feature rich LabTech and its automation greatness. If you are on a budget and need a robust product that will get the job done. I would recommend Lansweeper

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.
