We have been able to integrate our ISM system with Active Directory using API calls to automate user account creation and user Moves, Adds, and Changes. This has helped us make the employee onboarding and offboarding process much more efficient and less error prone. We cut down on mundane work for the account creation team and freed them to do more tier 2 and 3 tasks.

Where the system has been less appropriate for us is trying to integrate non-IT service processes. We haven't gotten a lot of buy-in from groups that aren't used to using an IT related system to receive tasks. It will take some time for us to make a more user friendly, non-IT, Support role.

Ivanti Service Manager lends itself to use cases across both IT Service Management and Enterprise Service Management landscapes by utilizing flexible role-based permissions and custom views and layouts, making it adaptable for use by multiple lines of business. It is perfectly at home in the ITSM space, coming pre-loaded with Incident, Request, Change, Problem, etc., but its platform supports wider adoption across HR, Finance, Facilities, etc.

Ivanti Service Manager can be customized specifically to your business needs. The pre-built product has tons of features, from Incident Management to Service Management to Change Management, Knowledge, Problem, Costing, and more, so it is possible to use the product out of the box with very little customization. ISM is very flexible and adaptable, so unless you won't do customizations, you can make the product fit your needs.

Companies that like to use automation customize the experience for their internal/external customers as well as the ability to scale out. If you want and really need the ability to follow ITIL standards, Ivanti Service Manager (powered by Heat) is a fantastic solution for you. ISM is that perfect fit for companies that also want to track changes, problems, and escalate requests on their help desk, and complete tasks with minimal interaction and time wasted on the customer's end. Asset Management is an optional module for companies that would use that feature set. For those who would use the two parts together, the product goes up to an entirely new level!

Ivanti Service Manager is well suited when a variety of systems and/or processes are used, providing a common interface for the end user to find knowledge articles or documents and submit requests and queries.

It is less appropriate when used as a large database as the indexing requires effort and the performance is not optimal.

Great product with an easy-to-use tool. Training for the user community is minimal. The techs can use it quickly and, since it is a cloud app, it can be reached from any location. We are in the process of expanding the Ivanti footprint more with the use of Neurons and the remote control agent.

Ivanti Service & Asset Manager (ITxM) with the help of experienced consultants is well suited for progressive companies interested in bringing their service desk and IT operations to the next level with a holistic approach and overview, implementation of workflows and automation to streamline processes and enable the Service Desk and IT to work on the business instead of in the business.

If you were a MSP looking to integrate your systems into a single system I would recommend [Ivanti Service Manager (powered by Heat)]. You really need someone who is strong with databases and integration to get the most out of the system, so either expect to pay an implementation specialist or employ your own as there is a lot of customization that needs to take place. We have had to add many custom fields and setup alerting on them to make this work for our business, but once it has been setup it was worked very well.

It's a great system for anyone between wanting something that's just plug-n-play that works out of the box, or someone who wants to shape it to make it their own, and do things their way. It's easy to build your processes into the system, or you can just run with how it's been preconfigured. One of it's limited features is document management. While the system will allow you to upload documents to a record, it's purely storage. It's not suitable for processes that require document processing functionality.

The work environment we use has some older machines as well as newer machines we are in the process of upgrading and researching new software that is compatible with what we have until we can make a full transition. Hopefully, we will have replaced all our older equipment in a few months to keep in step with the demand for our clientele that will be working from home.

I feel that in a Helpdesk or support level department this system is great. Ticket monitoring and visibility provide accountability. The inventory management feature is also in order to automate support requests when certain hardware issues are flagged. The implementation of a local agent on each PC being managed requires a deployment software like PDQ or Altiris in order to easily get the agent on all items. I think for large organizations of 1000+ employees this software is ideal. This software could be a bit overkill for smaller to medium-sized companies.

It is very well suited for break/fix and service requests. Both of these are handled very well and allow for catalogs to help categorize and sort end user requests automatically. The project management is not well suited and other products do it better for sure. It can be used but again others are better.

Perfect if you offer services (internally or externally), it will allow you to keep track of the work done, but also of the customer satisfaction (I love the in-house surveys).

It has a lot of built-in connections, but building new ones might be overwhelming, so make sure your current software/processes are compatible.

This product is an ideal tracking tool for contact centers like a technical support desk, IT Service Desk, or other incident management type of support service. The out-of-the-box capabilities it has to make sure 'incidents' don't fall by the waist side once created is extensive. The product is not ideal in my opinion for a shop that does not require a high-level of structure to tracking service center activity (smaller organizations that may otherwise use other tracking alternatives like custom web solutions developed in-house or equivalents).

HEAT Service Management (HEAT SM) is well suited when Customers need to extend service management capabilities to other areas of the business. HEAT SM delivers rich functionality right out of the box and allow users to configure them to meet their exact requirements. It is also possible to develop completely new business-level functions. Powerful graphical application configuration and development tools are included in the platform for this purpose.

Scale of the operation, resources available to handle difficulties and db admin functions and training process are crucial to a successful implementation. It can do what a Service Desk needs, but the older version in place needed lots of improvements. Be sure that the capabilities fit the organizational needs.
