Overall Satisfaction with BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite

BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite is used as a ticket system to track workload and is used by a single department.
  • Knowledge Base
  • Organization
  • Ease of use
  • Not easily customized
  • I don't get paid to figure this piece out but it is a useful tool/software
BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite has the best knowledge base of any ticketing software I have used and knowledge base is a huge part of daily use.
BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite is well suited in an IT environment and can help track and organize daily work flow.

Satisfied because I didn't have to do it!
Not sure - Not sure what we are referring to regarding a ticketing system
  • I was not around during the initial implementation

BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite Training

Yes, although I am probably missing out on a lot of other features since I was not shown all the features of the programs.

Configuring BMC Remedy IT Service Management Suite

None other than mentioned earlier.

Relationship with BMC Software Inc.

Always enjoyed our vendor communications.
Didn't see vendor as much but enough to explain and [ask] questions or [relay] concerns I may have had.
Remedy was already implemented when I moved over as IT coordinator.
No, vendor was around as much as needed.
