Overall Satisfaction with Freshservice

Freshservice is our ticketing-system. All incidents and service requests are being registered in Freshservice. It's our asset management tool, containing information about who is using-what. Now with everyone working from home, we needed a IT support tool, Freshservice is web based, has apps for mobile devices and gives the end user a smooth way to report any issues. The IT Servicedesk can keep track on all reported issues and is able to provide adequate support.
  • Web-based : issues can be reported from any device
  • Mobile apps : issues can be reported by using an app and reported issues can be tracked by the user
  • Asset-management : a Probe scans the devices and maintains installed software on devices
  • Maintenance of software assets : Freshservice reports the installed software, but if a device is retired, the software remains registered in the software assets. It would be better to have an option to clean it up.
  • Software assets are registered per software-release : there is no way to get an export of one software-asset at once, you have to export them per release. In case of programs like Firefox it's time consuming
  • Freshservice costs less than our previous support tool
  • Because Freshservice offers a lot of options OOB, we now do things we never did before, like asset management or proper authorization
  • Freshservice helps IT to get to a higher level
It works 'Out-of-the-box' (software nowadays never comes out of a box) : it's configuring your settings and you are good to go. Most features you need are there, adjust them to your demands, that's all to it.
Very good support, via chat and via email.
We switched from TOPdesk to Freshservice, mainly because of the costs. Freshservice offered so much more functionality that it was a no-brainer to make the switch

Evaluating Freshservice and Competitors

Yes - Topdesk. We had a discussion with Topdesk about renewing licensing, which made us look for an alternative.
  • Price
  • Product Features
Pricing : it had to be cheaper than TopDesk
i would do the same way

Freshservice Implementation

think of what you want to do with FreshService : a clean start or a migration. Migration can be done with csv files, it's easy to do but you need to test it first.
Change management was minimal
  • in fact it was very easy to do, no issues found
