Ivanti Service Manager is well suited when a variety of systems and/or processes are used, providing a common interface for the end user to find knowledge articles or documents and submit requests and queries.

It is less appropriate when used as a large database as the indexing requires effort and the performance is not optimal.

Ivanti Service Manager Support

Initial response is usually fast, but solving issues takes longer than expected and most of the times it is not clear what exactly the issue is and when it is going to be solved. It would be helpful to know if there are already complaints by other customers regarding new issues, so that we know that we are not alone and that Ivanti support is already aware of the problems.

Using Ivanti Service Manager

Although there are a lot of possibilities to customize and adapt the product to the company's needs, the tool is lacking the ability to provide simple search results in the Self Service user interface; for example, using wildcards or parts of words. From the analyst's perspective, the usability is acceptable.
