Great to manage your issues in a clear and centralised way. If your development teams work with Jira, it will all naturally come together. Great way to manage the issues from end to end. - Very flexible if you have people who understands the set up and is able to configure it for your needs - Maybe not the best if you want something with very easy set up

Currently, we are only using Whatfix with Salesforce but are in the process of implementing on other systems. It is an excellent tool to organize and provide in-app access to training materials already created. It excels at providing guidance about tasks users don't complete often and, therefore, forget what they were trained about the process. The only sort of system it might not work well is one that provides its own robust in-app assistance. More than one type of tip icon being displayed, for instance, could be confusing.

Pros
Atlassian
  • Manageable workflow to ensure all users follow the same process.
  • Can ban boards for easy visual of ticket status.
  • Very flexible tool that can adapt to lots of different uses outside of the traditional service desk model.
  • Added communication tools help you get out of e-mail jail.

Whatfix
  • Whatfix is a vendor that listens to their client, understands their business challenges, and works with them to achieve their goals.
  • Feature enhancements are released every quarter, often with significant functionality improvements.
  • The support and engineering teams are outstanding - responsive, helpful and nothing is ever too much trouble. Literally, second-to-none!

Cons
Atlassian
  • Ability to control the number of email notifications received (Note: this is a new feature in the Latest release but I personally haven not extensively looked at it and how well it solves the existing problem).
  • No way to reply to multiple tickets at once, say you got 4 tickets in for the same issue, there is no way you can reply to them in one stroke. Other Ticketing systems do have this ability.
  • Using a large number of add-ons to customize and add additional features adds up quickly and can become rather expensive.
  • Request forms are very basic and there is no native dynamic field ability available.

Whatfix
  • The possibility to select content/widgets at the time for "push to production" (some we would like to p2p for one single content, that is not possible at the moment).
  • I wish the filters in the dashboard would stay when you choose a content, currently you have to filter again and again.
  • In the analytics area, I would like the system to remember this for a certain time window after selecting the start date.

[We feel like] even though Whatfix has its flaws, we are impressed by the speed of development [and] their openness about their future improvements, [but] most important their proactive customer service and customer success team. Whatfix acts more like a partner than a supplier of a 3rd party tool, and we welcome that experience.

Usability

I gave JIRA a score of 9 since I am happy with the service it offers. I can easily see the SLA since it gives me visibility. I can pull up the reports I need. I can reach out to our clients using the PR ticket so it is hassle-free for me.

While they've made a lot of improvements in the last year, there are still challenges with walkthroughs and how beacons can be created. They are aware of these limitations and are actively soliciting customer feedback to help them remedy these shortcomings.

Support Rating
Atlassian
I have not used the technical support from Atlassian. In terms of online help and resources, they are a bit limited thus making it more of a challenge to troubleshoot issues and learn more functionality. There aren't a lot of resources available on the Atlassian site besides developer documents. It would be nice to have a blog or forum where users can get the help they need.

Whatfix is THE best vendor I've ever worked with when it comes to supporting their customers. The support team is friendly, helpful and always willing to listen to your suggestions and ideas. This also applies to the Engineering team who I've spent several hours on calls with debugging a few of the more challenging scenarios we have in place. Nothing is ever too much trouble for Whatfix and they are truly best-in-class when it comes to their support model.

While helpful, the feedback from our employee was, that [they felt] the training was very high-level - sometimes confusing. It would be great to have some kind of sandbox environment for new users to train certain scenarios.

Although Whatfix make the process relatively straightforward (they will provide Group Policy Scripts to install a Google Chrome extension specific to your organisation) its important to ensure your network deployment teams (if you have more than one) understand their role and what they need to do to test deployment once they undertaken the work.

Alternatives Considered

When I evaluated Spiceworks, it was not going to be replacing any ticketing systems. However, I did evaluate it and was not extremely impressed by the short demo I did. JIRA was selected because a branch of our company was already using it, so it made sense to consolidate into one service desk solution, and JIRA was the better option since it was less expensive and geared towards being a ticketing system.

There is no comparison - Whatfix is the clear winner with us from the very beginning. As Whatfix continues to grow and innovate their product, engage with it's customers on a level beyond any I have every seen. They work as Partners with us, their teams from bottom to top are incredible - Customer Service, Collaboration Teams, Innovation, Sales, Success Mangers and everyone I missed are incredible. One team in particular I want to call out for there outstanding service, care and innovation to help us launch one of our systems is the Professional Services Team. Ganish, Joel, and everyone else who has been on our calls and worked behind the scenes to hit our incredible tight deadline in August - KUDOs for a job well done, You ROCK, THANK YOU words cannot describe how great you guys have been with us on this project, but on all of them. Whatfix's team definitely understands, the customer is first, they align with our values and we will continue to grow with them

Return on Investment
Atlassian
  • JIRA has been incredibly useful. Our work is more organized and easier to view by the team members as well as upper-level people.
  • Our work is correctly assigned and when there are issues, they can be immediately addressed within the tool.
  • Users can attach screenshots or files of issues that help clarify the ticket. Developers can attach relevant data as well.

  • The hope is that it will make claiming expenses easier for employees which would allow them get on with their jobs and also take a number of basic queries away from the administrative team. Actual numbers are yet to be determined.
