[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
If your budget is really tight, then JitBit is not for you. It's kind of pricey. That said, JitBit HelpDesk is very robust--we've never had one second of downtime in my two years of using it. It depends on what's important to you. If you need rock-solid Help Desk and stellar, trouble-free performance, then JitBit it. If not, there are alternatives that are much less expensive. The cloud version might be less expensive for companies that don't need an on-premise solution.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.
Fantastic ticketing system to keep track of old conversations from clients.Fantastic analytics and metric tracking.Fantastic for sharing relationships with a customer. Generally, this would be a salesperson sharing an onboarding with a support person, but I think you could get creative with it. JitBit is very flexible.Super easy to learn and use. If you can use your email, you can use JitBit.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.
Better feature request timing.Email notification filtering.Automation of integrations.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.
We've looked at several different Help Desk solutions, but the names escape me at the moment. We looked at Spiceworks and didn't find it to be bad but we didn't like the ads. There is a purchase version for about $500/year, but we still decided against it--I can't recall why. JitBit's reviews and history are both very good. And if two years worth of no issues is any indication of how well it works, then that alone speaks for itself. I have used other Help Desk applications over the past 20 years and none are perfect, but a hassle-free experience gets a gold star from me.Incentivized
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.
Allowed us to blow up the amount of employees we had in our company.Created accountability between teams, which reduced bickering and finger pointing.Brought light to blind spots in work flow.Every, EVERY, hand off is fast, clear and understood between employees... It's great.Incentivized
