Using Cherwell Service Management

5000 - We have Students, Faculty, IT, Finance, Marketing, HR, etc
1 - Just little ol me.
  • Employee Onboarding
  • Processing student and staff IT requests and incidents
  • Processing Recognition of Prior Learning requests
  • Built a system to process RPL requests, saving the staff a lot of time.
10 because that is what the organization wants.

Evaluating Cherwell Service Management and Competitors

Yes - ReadyDesk because it was very basic and did not provide tasks, problem, change management, etc.
I was not part of the decision making process.
Would test a product extensively before buying into it.

Cherwell Service Management Implementation

Implementation seemed to go well.

Cherwell Service Management Support

Support is sometimes slow and doesn't always have a fix.
ProsCons
Good followup
Knowledgeable team
Problems get solved
Immediate help available
Slow Resolution
Not kept informed
Need to explain problems multiple times
Slow Initial Response
Yes - Yes and No. Seems to just become a Development Request and may get implemented in a future release.

ProsCons
None
Unnecessarily complex
Difficult to use
Requires technical support
Inconsistent

Lots to learn
  • Dashboards
  • Searches
  • Exporting
  • Building complex solutions
  • Reporting
  • System Stability
Yes - They used to but I think it is discontinued. It seems like a third party - SigmaGo - has taken on providing a mobile app. At an additional cost, I should add.
