[BMC Helix Remedyforce] is probably best suited for an MSP who needs to keep multiple clients separated. If you were an internal IT department I think the additional features it has would be lost. When dealing with an MSP who needs to know what software and what issues have effected specific clients it is very well suited to do that.Incentivized
The concept of the solution is a good one and in theory, Hornbill Supportworks ITSM is good for incoming inquiries/tickets management. The inquiries can be automatically captured by a user submitting a request, and an email notification is sent to both the Helpdesk team and the customer. The inquiries are then tracked, alerting the team when the SLA is about to be/has been breached. Once the inquiry has been resolved, it notifies all relevant parties, as well as time-stamps the action.Incentivized
An admin user is able to quickly create a request definition with all of its components from one screen. We use to have to go to the 7 or 8 different screens to create each piece of the request definition.Ability to update multiple Incidents/Service Requests at once with the update button. This allows essentially an inline edit functionality within Remedyforce.Change management schedule is a great feature as well to be able to see how changes align and what there expected start dates/times are.
Manages a large amount of data without slowdown or issues.Reliable platform for incident and problem management.API usage for linking to other systems is basic but useable.Incentivized
The ability to monitor/regulate the volume of tickets when you integrate with your monitoring software. We have so many items that trigger alerts, creating a ticket for each is somewhat overwhelming. Would like to be able to better control when an incident should be created.Being able to report on Service requests and tasks together would be nice. Right now I have to do it separately as they are in different buckets, so to speak.Remedy console is an improvement from where it started but can still be a cleaner interface for a tech to be able to work out of for their day to day work.
The interface is quite hard work, not very visually friendlyIt all just feels a bit old fashioned and needs a rebootThis may be an internal process, but not everyone has access, so quite frequently I have to pick requests up and then take them out of the Supportworks system.Incentivized
The total amount of time spent from installation to configuration for a minimal ticketing system was 2 hours. Maintenance and customization for the application can be completed with a great amount of ease. In addition having a customer portal is an added benefit that pays for itself Incentivized

Learning industry best practices or gaining insight on them from either BMC or an implementation partner would have saved some headaches we faced after roll-out.Incentivized
I previously worked with tools like Service Manager which were difficult to configure, administer and maintain. The support options were very limited. Remedyforce has local US support, dedicated reps, and a more developed infrastructure to work from to support an organization. This runs on the Salesforce platform so worrying about server failures and unscheduled outages was no longer going to be an issue for us. Self service, knowledge base, and change control were just a few highly utilized features that helped employees support themselves and automate very manual processes.
Remedyforce has allowed us to eliminate other solutions that provided similar features. By now using one true ITSM we have been able to save money which in higher education is always a concern.The reports and dashboards allow for a birds-eye view of our daily operations and provide managers and executives the information they need to make important cost saving decisions.
The system 'does what it says on the tin' - it captures and helps manage incoming inquiries - so the positive impact is there.However, this is not done in the most intuitive or user-friendly manner. This causes frustration at times.Overall, a single centralized system for managing customer inquiries and requests is paramount for any mid-size business, particularly if this business is service-basedIncentivized
