If you cannot measure your current self then you cannot expect to improve. This was told to me by our call center manager a while ago about the importance of knowing exactly what you currently are capable of in order to better know what will be expected in the future. With this I looked at our old system which was clunky, slow, and universally hated, then tried to do better, that better option was Freshservice, which can be accessed from anywhere, fast, online, and easy to understand. With practically no training the techs were able to just pick it up and go. This was a big help in getting them to start actually using the system.

Happy Fox works well in companies that want a full look at all of their tickets in one place. It may be better suited to smaller companies who can check or double check their tickets and have the time to spare. For bigger companies, I think there are better, more robust solutions.

Pros

Freshservice

  • Customized customer portal and ticketing system - We have specific information we want our customers and team to access. Freshservice allows us to have all that exactly as we want.
  • Freshchat integration - Having the chat portal integrated on our customer portal has improved our ability to communicate and quickly resolve issues. We have the chat widget on our main customer portal through Freshservice and our Moodle LMS.
  • Asset tracking and integration - we have the ability to track our assets from anywhere now. It makes field service calls so much easier since we don't have to rely on a spreadsheet on our server. We can also connect service tickets to assets so our repairs and changes are more accurate.
  • Mobile App - having the mobile app boosts our ability in the field. We can tag assets from the app to make changes and updates. We can provide the same service on the road as we can in our offices.

  • Smart Rules - Easily create triggers that run based on a variety of criteria. This allows for easily moving tickets through our process. An awesome example is our manager's ability to assign tickets to technicians right from their email simply by responding to the ticket in a certain way. This prevents the opening of a web browser or the mobile app to complete basic functions. Removing one step from the process has already saved us countless hours.
  • Easy to use and clean interfaces all around. Whether it's the web interface, mobile web interface, or one of the mobile apps, HappyFox is all around intuitive. Plenty of things can be made to be updated in two or fewer clicks (Assigned to, due date, priority).
  • HappyFox allows our users to easily create tickets on behalf of customers. Any person who has previously contacted the Help Desk is stored as a contact and can be referenced again quickly.
  • While the portal they provide is basic, it can be quite heavily customized with color schemes and logos. Ours ended up looking better than almost anything else we host both internally and externally. It's clean, simple and provides an easy way for users to input a ticket.
  • Between the Smart Rules and SLAs it's easy to make sure every ticket gets the attention it deserves. Automatic reminders can be sent to technicians based on criteria. Reports can be run to ensure that service levels are being met. These two things alone have greatly increased the quality of service.

Cons

Freshservice

  • Maintenance of software assets : Freshservice reports the installed software, but if a device is retired, the software remains registered in the software assets. It would be better to have an option to clean it up.
  • Software assets are registered per software-release : there is no way to get an export of one software-asset at once, you have to export them per release. In case of programs like Firefox it's time consuming

  • There are a few features that I would hope to be standard that are not yet accessible. For instance, having different time zones isn't a choice, and clients aren't able to create their own reports, only staff can. So, my staff is required to run those reports for our clients.

The way we have our implementation customized has allowed us to tailor the application to exactly how we would like to use it. We didn't have to change our procedures and fear the potential of poor adoption. Instead we customized the application to be used the way we already ran our help desk. From there on out we reaped the benefits of quicker resolutions, increased transparency, and much happier end users. After setting up Smart Rules, HappyFox does a lot of thinking for us. Tickets go where they need to go, close when they are supposed to close and even remind techs of inactivity. This removes the necessity for micromanagement, which is appreciated by our employees and managers alike

On the I.T. side, the time to ramp up and understand how FreshService operates only took a few hours. After that, it was off to the races with configuration and customization. From the start, with minimal assistance, our end users found FreshService to be incredibly intuitive. At launch, we expected most to submit tickets via email, however, our analytics has shown that end-users actually prefer the portal for managing their I.T. tickets.

The support team is highly professional and most of them I have spoken are so kind and helpful. I had booked a session for an hour to set up alerts using Workflow Automator, and in that time, the support guy helped me configure alerts, set up change management process groups, etc. Most of the other vendors will ask you to submit a separate ticket for each request.

Use case and requirements have to be very specific. Each business is different so it's very important to be as clear as possible with your initial requirements when communicating with the on-boarding/implementation team.

Alternatives Considered

Freshservice

We picked Freshservice over the others for many reasons. The first would be the ease of implementation. Another is due to the nice interface the system has. We also like the way we can push out a small piece of software to pull in the asset information for asset management. Just all around better product.
Mark Kosier | TrustRadius Reviewer

HappyFox delivered a more cost effective solution and asset management had no limit. The main problem I saw with the various other services I demoed, was the up charges. The pricing seems manageable until you see that they charge for every 100 or so of this and 100 of that. HappyFox is truly a one-stop shop for us.

Return on Investment

Freshservice

  • The service catalog has simplified and reduced inquiries about purchasing equipment, requesting forms, and identifying software that is available to campus. We estimate a 25% reduction in such inquiries
  • Canned responses and the ability to insert solutions allows our staff to spend more time supporting our users, rather than looking up answers and typing responses.
  • Using the CMDB to document infrastructure, business processes, and training material has allowed IT staff to get-up-to-speed and identify answers to questions more quickly. Additionally, the documentation is advantageous for other departments across campus so that we can show impact of business process changes.

  • Through Email support, the company conducts a marketing plan, through sharing of catalogs.
  • Survey and feedback are conducted and attained from HappyFox.
  • HappyFox supports live chat, an easy way to perfect the satisfaction of clients.
