HelpSpot is well suited for streamlining support ticketing within the organization. By providing a single point of contact to email for support, we were able to increase response time and case resolution by approximately 30% through the increased efficiency of ticket routing via workflows and the ability for IT support staff to grab tickets from the queue instead of having them pile up in a mailbox that contains other emails as well.

I advise my customers to use it for all issue tracking, in business development as well as in business operations. An interface to operational systems is therefor very helpful and enlarges the value of the KronoDesk knowledge base, provided that this information is "open" to all users of all departments.

Pros

HelpSpot

  • HelpSpot was great for organization. Having different queues allowed each of my team members to organize their conversations with the customer and quickly retrieve the history of the ticket.
  • HelpSpot is a fairly simple tool that has a friendly user interface. With it's more modern look, it made it easier for me personally to navigate and train team members on how to use it successfully.
  • HelpSpot allowed our team to view the responses section, which allowed our team to cut down on the time we spent responding to a ticket.

  • As a system architect I have a clear overview of open issues through clear issue description and assignment to developers.
  • The overview and tracking are most important to me.

Cons

HelpSpot

  • The UI is a little dated but to be fair, shows most of the pertinent information at a glance on a well designed dashboard.
  • The UI can also be buggy at times with controls appearing in strange places. These glitches are usually corrected within a reasonable amount of time.

KronoDesk

  • The possibility to create a system/subsystem/component/interface tree of the system landscape, to be used to more detailed issue associations and subsequent detailed planning and monitoring of issues.
  • A quick issue entry with the most important information would be helpful.
  • A "live" report that can contains my current "hot" issues would be helpful.

HelpSpot appears to be more of an old-school product but much of the recent technology is running under the surface. It has much of the compexity and customization available with Jira in tandem with the easy communications interface, not unlike Zendesk ,and some of the potential archival intelligence (in the works) of Fogbugz

Several freeware/shareware tools like Bugzilla are missing integration with other systems.HP, IBM and CA like systems are too cumbersome and complicated for "normal" users, for me too much "hassle" to monitor issues and related information and links to other issues.

Return on Investment

HelpSpot

  • Improved ticket response time
  • Workload reporting to upper management
  • Ticket category reporting to identify training opportunities
