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.

Tivoli Asset Management for IT can be used very well in a big datacenter to easily manage assets. For linear assets there are other Tivoli Asset Manager products available such as for transportation domain, oil and gas.For a small scale industry, Tivoli Asset management solution is not a big help.

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.

  • Can take benefit of all asset module solutions such as procurement, invoicing, PO, receivables, asset lifecyle, vendor and contract management using Tivoli Asset Management.

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
Rob Buurman | TrustRadius Reviewer

Tivoli Asset Management for IT (Discontinued)

  • Software bundling can be handled in a better way
  • Should eliminate rotating/non-rotating items concepts or should have an easy way to receive assets
  • Asset Topology can be introduced to see the dependencies between related assets

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.

Tivoli Asset Management is comparatively cheap and easy to implement with a rich set of complementing modules. It can also be integrated easily with other asset management solutions and act as a single source of truth for other PMP processes

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.

Tivoli Asset Management for IT (Discontinued)

  • By tracking software assets, we are able to easily manage the license compliance
  • By getting the over/under allocation metrics we are able to get full control on asset procurement
  • Recycle/Reuse asset procedures made simple
