ClickDesk

It was well suited for quick chats. Sometimes a topic over chat can be too complicated and requires a phone call which ClickDesk gives an option for a phone call. It is too specific and limited to conversations. The reason we moved away from this to Microsoft Teams is because Teams is a more all in one solution. It can do chat, phone calls as well as webinars and screen sharing.

One of the main issues for us is tracking overdue tickets and how they can be better resolved. Missed SLA's are also better tracked to show our team how to avoid this by giving better support or passing along to another level if needed. The reporting mechanism allows us to change on the fly to see where we are lacking support and where we may have too many resources staffed. By utilizing these reports we can move resources around to have better coverage.

Pros

ClickDesk

  • They have a simple agent panel, your agents don't have to be a pro tech to manage their agent panel.
  • They also have a simple ticking system along with live chat, it's not huge but it does work.
  • Easy to implement with well known knowledgeable and CMS.

SolarWinds Web Help Desk (WHD)

  • Email notifications are pretty good; you can add hidden notes, close/resolve/update tickets just by selecting the appropriate link in the email that is sent when a ticket is created or edited.
  • It provides a great deal of information to both the user and tech.
  • It allows us to automatically update asset information with our mobile device management system by using an extension.

Cons

ClickDesk

  • Windows native application that has all the services we can use from browsers. The application should be boot with PC starts and notifies real time actions.
  • More information about users. Real time page visiting histories (more advanced way).
  • Customers can review the agent's profile information (public profile).

SolarWinds Web Help Desk (WHD)

  • Support occasionally misses the mark (e.g. usually simple misunderstandings or mis-communications)
  • Intermittent UI bugs (e.g.: fields disappear until page refreshes)
  • AD/LDAP imports can be quirky (e.g.: user name changes, deactivates old user, makes new user instead of just renaming user)
  • Reports can be tricky to write

We are definitely going to be sticking with Web Help Desk for the foreseeable future since the product is very inexpensive for the features that it provides, the integration that it has with our existing systems, and the ease for managing users, assets, locations, and tickets. Web Help Desk is a great product that is backed by even better support, which is well worth looking into if you are considering moving to a new ticketing system.

The system has time and time again proven to be much easier to use and setup for both technicians and end users. It is simple enough to enter a ticket for end users, and even easier to communicate with logging back and forth because you can reply to the ticket emails to enter comments on the tickets. The technician side is a little clunky at first, but after looking at it for a few minutes it's very clear to see what you need to do to accomplish the goals. The mobile interface is snappy and responsive. It's a great product overall.

SolarWinds is a great customizable and affordable ticketing system. We use SolarWinds Web Help Desk for IT and Software
Development trouble ticket tracking and resolution. The reporting that
SolarWinds provides is great since it helps us discover problem areas and fix
those areas so they don't keep reoccurring

Take the time to roll out a test VM to configure and make changes to before doing a live deployment, this way you don't end up with a VM that has been tweaked and re-tweaked until it's perfect and instead end up with a final, polished product.I would also recommend taking the time to read through the support forums for figuring out minor issues that may pop up, chances are that you aren't going to be the first one to encounter them.When all is said and done, SolarWinds Support is VERY responsive and you shouldn't hesitate to contact them.

Alternatives Considered

ClickDesk

ClickDesk was good at what it did, but it doesn't have the holistic approach that Teams does. With Teams, you can not only chat and make calls, you can host webinars. You can see when people have read your messages to see if they are ignoring you or not. Screen sharing is a breeze and is easy to presentations with the audience. People can virtually raise their hands when they have a question. Also, it [is] easy to conduct polls from the audience in Teams.

SolarWinds Web Help Desk (WHD) holds its own among the top competitors for help desk systems. Some advanced functionality, and more-so the lack of polished interface knocks it down compared to some competitors. I selected SolarWinds Web Help Desk (WHD) simply because I came into a shop that was already using it. I may evaluate new options in the coming years to try and find an offering with better reporting functionality and a more polished GUI.
