Overall Satisfaction with BMC Track-It!

Currently, BMC Track-It! is being used across the whole organization. Most users have basic access in order to input support tickets to our IT department, while the IT department has technician access, which allows them to edit support tickets in more detail. It addresses the problem of allowing IT technicians to be assigned and track issues.
  • Track issues from certain staff - allows IT to notice if there are trends
  • Create buckets in order to sort tickets and issues
  • Assign tickets to specific technicians in order to promote accountability
  • Not very easy to delete users or certain "tags" such as resolution codes, subtype, etc
  • End users can create accounts and use up a license without being specifically provisioned
  • Only simplistic ways to sort tickets
  • Assign tickets to IT technicians
  • Create SLAs in order to track issues
  • Have an easy to view UI that lets technicians easily see their workload
  • Easily able to see productivity of technicians
  • Able to answer to SLAs due to easy view
  • Limited amount of reports, a lot of data is missed that could be used to prevent further issues
BMC Track-It! is much more bare bones compared to ServiceNow products, and if your department has the money, ServiceNow is a much better option. Not only is the Knowledge Base much easier to create and publish articles, but the asset management in BMC Track-It! is practically useless. BMC Track-It! is more cost effective, and with a small amount of technicians there's likely no reason to need a bigger solution, but it leaves a lot wanting.

Would you buy BMC Track-It! again?


While it is certainly not the best IT management system, it's solid and it's a good alternative for a smaller business and their even smaller IT departments. It's certainly more cost effective than fancy solutions, and it does what it needs. However, this is definitely not a good solution for bigger (50+) IT departments, as it doesn't allow much sorting, and the reporting system is subpar.
