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.

SupportBee is particularly well suited as a support ticket system if you use the systems supported by its 3rd party integrations. If you are looking for a lightweight, easy-to-use, support ticket system without a lot of extras, then SupportBee is the right choice.

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.

  • LIGHTWEIGHT INTERFACE - all the other support / ticketing systems we've worked with were extremely feature rich, which led to them being very very hard to use. (Almost none of those companies seem to employ information architects and knowledgeable UX directors, leading to clunky interfaces).
  • RELATED TICKETS - I can see at a glance what other issues a particular client has had.
  • 3rd PARTY INTEGRATIONS - Part of our decision process was that SupportBee integrated with our other systems very well, allowing the systems to talk to each other, feeding us relevant data across our systems.

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.

  • MESSAGE THREADING - the interface for long message threads makes things difficult to scan and review.
  • PRICE TIERS - a few of the pieces of functionality we need (client portal) are at a price tier that makes it infeasible for us.

It does exactly what we need. Changing to something else would make no sense.

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.

SupportBee is the "maximal point" of the combination of feature set, price point, ease of use, third party integrations, and client-facing functionality. Every other system we've tried is too expensive, impossible to use, too many features, too high a learning curve for our employees, or too difficult for our clients to interact with.

Return on Investment

  • Employee efficiency is much higher, as they aren't spending time on tasks that don't add value.
  • From a sales perspective, we have a much better view on what is in the pipeline, and what the likely conversion % is.
  • Overall, we are much more organized due to the tool, and I think mainly it is due to the increased visibility that is possible. Tracking processes, automating reminders, etc makes our operations department run much more effectively. We are looking forward to how much more we can get out of the tool in the future.
