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 helpful when someone wants to reassign issues and delegate tasks to other co-workers. However, it is not a good place for documentation because it is difficult to navigate older issue tickets. This is my personal experience with RightNow, an Oracle application used to manage our incident reports and project tracking documents

Cons

  • The documentation was a little dated, but they have recently updated the online help and now it is in line with the current version features.

  • The search function was very poor, which made it difficult to find our issue tickets in RightNow.
  • The Reply feature was kind of messy at times, it was difficult to find out who originally sent in tickets and reply all to people.
  • It could have looked a bit sleeker, it looked somewhat outdated in the RightNow function.

Usability

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.

Return on Investment

  • We have been able to reduce the time to resolve service related issues drastically. We also use our system for account requests, assets management, software requests and handling confidential issues with added security and that table.

  • It was helpful because it was our only system for organizing incident reports, and it was where I worked 70% of the time to correspond with our customers.
  • The interface was sometimes time-consuming to use, and I wondered if there would have been a more streamlined program to use. It made our work seem slow at times.
  • This program did provide us with a back-log of all of our issues, so it was important for us to use to in order to find repeated incident reports.
