Although the customer support provided by Mhelpdesk is relatively great, there have been times when things go unsolved or not taken care of within the amount of time needed.,9,It has overall been positive,FCS Hospitality Operations ManagementA Worthy Dispatch Management Tool!We have a maintenance subsidiary for which our 150+ managers can create work orders for our nearly 800 managed locations. mHelpDesk helps to maintain that database, keep the work order originators updated as projects progress or stall, and assists the dispatcher in managing the work load and placement of the techs throughout our metro area.,mHelpDesk can be used to initiate work orders, track them, update them, and know when they have been completed without a log of phone calls or emails being necessary. mHelpDesk allows administrators to see an overview of the workorders which have been placed or are in progress to analyze the efficiency of the operation. mHelpDesk permits mobile updates, questions, comments, or completion notes to be entered and immediately seen by all involved parties (tech, dispatcher, tech supervisor, administrators, and originators of workorders).,mHelpDesk lacks in its expansion ability of multiple administrator types. We have executive level, midlevel, and department level administrators in addition to the tech, managers, etc. working directly with the system. It seems we are always about one admin level shy of what we need and are unable to create it. mHelpDesk sometimes has difficulty with its mobile tracking either being accurate as seen by the administrators or in locking up the mobile devices of the techs. It is not a constant issue yet one which occurs often enough to be of note. mHelpDesk doesn't track automatically so our mobile techs can shut that off. While that may be a disciplinary operational issue for us as well, we should be able to lock that setting "on" so our users are tracked which using the app.,8,We are 6 months into it with a 50% rollout completed. We need more time to pass and full rollout to be completed before making a hard statement as to the ROI. We have already seen greater efficiency in dispatching techs in regards to how many projects per day may be handled (we know of their downtime) and travel time mangement (by being able to map the locations and track them easier). No negative impacts on ROI have yet to be seen nor are they projected.mHelpDesk - still needs some help.We used mHelpDesk for nearly 3 years. It was a great starting point for us and we couldn't have done without it. The CRM feature set is great overall. We used it to keep track of our customers for in-shop and on-site computer repair/consulting related work. We used it for billing, scheduling, ticketing and job tracking.,Design interface is great. There was a major design overhaul about a year ago. It became much "prettier", but also much slower as a result. The overhaul made it easier to use on mobile devices and laptops with smaller screens. Customer service was always very responsive. The team at mHelpDesk seems to really enjoy what they do and were always friendly and helpful. Workflow. Overall, very easy from a start to finish process of creating a customer, adding a ticket and invoicing work.,mHelpDesk grew VERY fast during the time we used them. I think as a result of trying to cater to many industries and customers, they weren't able to add new features and fix bugs as quickly as they could have if they would have spent a little less on advertising and more on perfecting the product first. Nesting layout. Looks very much like Quickbooks Online. If you open a customer, then a ticket, then an invoice, etc., - you have all these windows open and have to close out one at a time. When you're in a hurry and time is critical, this becomes annoying quickly. Speed. mHelpDesk 1 was really fast. mHelpDesk 2 was SLOW! It's improved over time, but as pretty as it was, we ended up sticking with mHelpDesk 1 because it was so much faster. Want to send your client a statement of all their invoices? Too bad! If you integrate with Quickbooks, you can do this - but mHelpDesk didn't have an option to simply send a statement of all invoices. This is such a simple thing that was needed and no great solution to do it. You could export to CSV, but how many customers want to get that? Invoice/Commission tracking. Say you create an invoice and you want to track the sales person that created it - maybe for a quick purchase without creating a ticket. You can't do that in mHelpDesk 2. You HAVE to create a TICKET first, assign a staff member, THEN create an invoice. That's a lot of work to make a quick sale and track the commission. With mHelpDesk 1, we were at least able to make the invoice - it would automatically create a ticket, and then we could assign the ticket to the tech afterward. With Version 2 - creating an invoice stopped generating a ticket automatically. This was very frustrating and another reason we stuck with version 1.,5,During the time we used it, I don't know how we ever went without it. We started tracking customers in QuickBooks, but mHelpDesk gave us great ticket tracking, item and inventory tracking that worked great for our business at the time. Invoicing. They have a great integration with Stripe, and now their own billing platform (I have no experience using it - although they advertise it to be the cheapest in the industry which is incorrect if you have a $100 average transaction and you figure in their transaction fee - Square is still less). Automated invoices to customers and recurring invoices were great features that helped our business a lot. Workflow. Being able to track tickets at a glance and see what's in the queue for work to be done made it very easy to keep customers updated and stay on top of our work.,RepairShopr,QuickBooks Online, ScreenConnectMhelpdesk streamlines our workorder and billing process, getting us paid quicker.Our entire organization uses it. Our biggest issue is that we user our outlook calandars for scheduling and the mhelpdesk calendar does not tie in with that, so we double enter. Mhelpdesk does integrate great with quickbooks though.,The timer to track the technicians time is wonderful. Integrates well with QuickBooks. The mobile app is great.,More platforms for the mobile ap will be helpful. Integrating w/ Outlook for calendar would be nice.,8,Better tracking of time and improved speed in which invoices are generated and sent.,9,Vendor implemented Implemented in-house,8Great software for the service industry!!Mhelpdesk allows our sales staff to create estimates and invoices in the field without the connectivity headaches of Quickbooks online products. It allows us to track the status of our projects from initial customer contact through completion.,Customized reports cannot be saved for future use.,The ability to push estimates, invoices, and payments over to Quickbooks with the click of a button eliminates errors saves my office staff 5-10 hours each week.,10,10

Mhelpdesk is perfect for smaller companies and mid-sized companies I would say. Larger companies may need something a little more advanced for lack of better words or able to handle thousands upon thousands of constant work orders, etc. Smaller companies or companies that are mid-size would benefit from this program the most as it provides the necessary programming to succeed along with its ease of use.

mHelpDesk would be well suited for work order management in a hotel, apartment, or condominium environment. We are using it in the condominium environment and in a managed-portfolio environment. While it works in both of the environments in which we use it, it is best suited for the one-off locations I first described versus the managed-portfolio environment.

I think for certain industries, mHelpDesk would be a great fit. But for computer repair/consulting, I simply don't recommend it. We switched to a competing product called RepairShopr and honestly, it does pretty much everything better. There are a few things that I liked the way mHelpDesk did, but in the last 6-8 months we've been using RepairShopr, they've added sooo many new features vs. the very slow rollout of features and updates that mHelpDesk performed.
If you have employees in the field more, it might be a better fit - there are some great options that mHelpDesk has added and they have a very functional mobile application as well.

Our entire organization uses it. Our biggest issue is that we user our outlook calandars for scheduling and the mhelpdesk calendar does not tie in with that, so we double enter. Mhelpdesk does integrate great with quickbooks though.
  • The timer to track the technicians time is wonderful.
  • Integrates well with QuickBooks.
  • The mobile app is great.
  • More platforms for the mobile ap will be helpful.
  • Integrating w/ Outlook for calendar would be nice.
Does it integrate w/ my current accounting software? Utilize it to it's fullest.
