[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.

It all depends on what business you're operating. You should also consider your needs, goals, and pain points when looking at [HubSpot] Service Hub. If you’re in need of a tool that will help you manage everything from start to finish, then yes HubSpot might be something to consider. It’s truly an all-in-one platform for everything and anything marketing, sales, and customer support, all in one place.
Read full review Pros 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. Read full review It makes it easier for us to keep track of customer awareness and review in one spot. The great thing about how easy it is to use all of its fantastic tools. The ability to check customer retention. It's easy to track and measure the success of our organization's sales team. This is a fantastic all-in-one customer success suite that includes ticketing. Read full review Cons 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 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

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.

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.

Hubspot Live chat is not the most feature backed but its core service is solid and gets the job. Other live chat software like Live Chat or Zendesk has more features but most of those features are not needed for the everyday biz user
Read full review Return on Investment 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.
