1. What kind of service-levels are you looking to establish?2. Are there other programs you are going to be using for other aspects of 'the job?'3. How many employees are going to be needing access to ChangeGear?4. Do you want a highly configurable product or something that will come out of the box pre-set?5. Are you looking to keep track of equipment deployed to the customers you support?

This is well suited for someone who is looking for a basic help desk system (like we were). This product will get you out the door, but after owning it for several years now we have begun to look for more. The hardest part is that you cant get to raw data to use with other BI tools. If you want major customizations you will be limited

Cons

ChangeGear Service Desk

  • Not sure if this is due to our back end, but ChangeGear Service Desk can sometimes bog down. Speed can always be improved and, while version 6 has been impressive so far, slow downs are still common.
  • Browser compatibility can sometimes be hit or miss. Certain fields would not work on Chrome, so our department has required FireFox. I have not tested 6 on other browsers but hopefully the upgrade has taken care of this.
  • The communications with customers are not easy to sift through. With limited attention spans, seeing a subject line filled with 'gibberish' causes our customers to either delete or leave the message forever unread. Again, not sure if due to our implementation, but I would clean that sort of thing up.

  • The database for back-end is clunky and cryptic, and it is very hard to access data.
  • The reporting functions are really lacking.

Because it allows me to work in (probably) the most organized way possible. It allows me to collaborate quickly and rather effortlessly with coworkers within my team and other teams in the Technology department. The deduction in rating is due to the issues with speed and browser compatibility. Version 6 has been a revelation but I as always, there's room for improvement.

This is one area where they need a lot of help, especially for being selling an ITSM. The service desk is located in Brazil, and they have very few individuals that speak English. Multiple updates over the year have broken the language of the system and tickets have come out in a foreign language. Support is unable to fix issues that occur where downtime occurs. Updates are too fast. Revisions happen 3-4 a week.

  • Upfront, it had a very good ROI compared to a homegrown system that was being used.
  • Allows users to submit issues to get MFG back up and running.
