- Automatically reads designated mail folder and creates incidents from this; this function is saving us a lot of time entering incidents. In this way, we can respond much quicker to incident calls.
- Escalation of incidents. We use this a lot, because we don't want our servicedesk to be occupied with stuff they cannot solve in a fashionable time. In this way customers are getting the correct response much quicker.
- Report engine. Creating reports is really nice and you can make them the way you want them. This gives us the flexibility to create reports with all the necessary information for our customers.
- Give best practice tips when designing your Topdesk environment, in this way you won't run into discussions with a Topdesk consultant about the way you run things!
- Make it easier to design some work forms for jobs you do for customers and let them sign off.
- Get more functionality available as an add-on, there are examples where you need to buy enterprise license just to get a hold on some of those features.
- It transforms from static to flexible.
- It implements new functionalities like asset management.
- They listen to the wishes and needs of their customers.
- Flexibility in incident management (like asset management)
- Artificial intelligence based on categorization etcetera are very welcome
- Easier use of filters
- Software/ hardware lease contracts. You can add end dates, alert dates, lease amount, duration number in days/months/years. Activate and not active anymore. But still, have a good overview
- Machine registration. You can sort by date who is the supplier. Estimated end of the live period. Maintenance plan. Contract info. Repair history. Contact info. This is a very complete module
- Organisation overview is also very complete.
- One thing that can be better is the configuration for sending emails. For this, you need the help of TOPdesk. This would be better if a customer could set this by them self
- As I already mentioned. Sending mail configuration could be better and should be maintained by customer.
- Maybe more mobile friendly
- Keeps developing
- Excellent price / quality ratio
- Needs more rich text options
- Response time reporting
- Renaming fields / changing lay-out would be nice
- Self-service portal has very limited reporting options and no export functions
Will work fine as a guideline for setting up your business but is a no go for situations where organisations want to deploy very elaborate and customized processes.
- customizing the tool to their own needs
- flexible, powerful
- good reporting facilities
- make it easier to delete records which not being used
- a better overview of following process steps and show the consequences of doing some actions.
- improvement of the user guide
- TOPdesk can be used for contact tracking during support sessions.
- Support documentation on the self service desk is limited in the options and workflow.
- Reporting options are limited.
- Simultaneous updating of one issue by triggers or other representatives gives "Already updates" errors.
For an out of the box solution there is a high level of customability, however as every out of the box solution it will never support your processes fully and there is the risk of altering your well appreciated existing business processes to suit the tool.
- Incident management: In my opinion, is the core process for TOPdesk. Call agents can easily register tickets, you can send status updates to your clients and send an information email when the problem is solved.
- Selfservicedesk: You can give customers access to the SSD so they can apply a new incident, but they can also follow any ticket they applied earlier.
- Possibility to connect with Azure AD. We run LDAP connection so we can import all our employees and students. In the future, all our users will be known in the Azure AD instead of our on-premise AD.
- Very good customer service
- In general a nice product to use, too bad we do not use it to full extent
- Honestly, I don't have any examples. if I have to say one thing it is that I have to search often for features in the admin part. Maybe because I don't use it often enough maybe because its a little confusing?
The self-service desk is used for customers to enter their problems. For projects, we use the operator part.
- Simplicity in use. Incident management is straightforward.
- Ease of configuration. Users and permission groups can easily be added. Graphical overview is a pro.
- Modularity. Incident management and change management.
- Self-service desk: Option to be able to add more functionality for certain goals. In our situation, we would like to have the possibility to change some fields when the incident is created. For example the customer priority or status. In that way, we can use the self-service desk in projects
- The Kanban board is new. We would like to have it in Change management also. Extra columns on the board - you should be able to configure it per operator group.
- The user interface is not the same in all places. In certain cards the edit button is visible while on other cards it muc be chosen from the drop-down menu.
- Incident management suited for facility management.
- For use of ticket handling a project, it is less appropriate. There you should log in as an operator.
Less appropiate: project management
- Versatile enough to be usable and add value across multiple support functions - makes ROI and efficiency conversations more obvious
- Great modular building blocks - enabling progressive development and improvement in planned phases
- Readily configurable to fit in with desired style and branding - adding to the alignment and common experience for end users
- Has all the essentials for empowering the end users to self service - shifting support level, delivering more timely and cost effective resolutions
- The only area of challenge for us with TOPdesk fitting in with our wider technical architecture is that not all of our more obscure tools had existing interfaces or APIs, but this is hardly a bad reflection on TOPdesk
- TOPdesk provides a clear, cohesive and intuitive customer experience
- Self-service portal enables reduced contact via less ideal modes i.e. email or phone
- Promotes effective parallel resolution to complex calls and more effective collaboration between support service areas
- A customer-focused, people-centric pan-organisation support tool which has done all we were seeking - even though we were seeking a lot!!!
- Specifically in a service driven organisation like ours
- For incident management and follow up it is well suited.
- TOPdesk is very scalable.
- Support desk
- Incident management and change management are well suited.
- Workflow and attachments can be better, also project management can be better.
Room reservations and incident management works very good.
We don't use TOPdesk for planning purposes, we think it's not really suited for this task.
- Ticketing: recording and handling IT tickets
- Self service portal with knowledge articles for employees
- Asset management can be improved
- Searching assets in a ticket can be improved (more fields to search instead of only objectID)
- As a service desk tool, it is ideal for 1st and 2nd tier engineers.
- Less suited for transition from a project to service desk
- Incident management works well, especially with the self-service portal
- It is easy to add SLAs and do reporting
- Measuring and reporting on response times (instead of lead time) is not yet completely implemented (under construction)
- Topdesk is well suited for incident management in software development companies.
- Integration of change management module and incident management has room for improvement.
- Self service portal so customers can register their own issues
- Automatic reply when registering, updating incidents and changes
- Automatic mail import into TOPdesk
- Using multiple mail server accounts when sending updates to customers. Now you can only use one email account with aliases.
- Directly pasting pictures in incident comments without having to save them first.
- Registration of spend time on incident and changes could be better.
