Overall Satisfaction with Jira Service Management (Jira Service Desk)

We use Jira to set up service tickets in the IT department and track inbound calls and requests. Field personnel are also able to open Jira tickets directly in order to request assistance or notify the help desk of issues. We also use Jira to keep track of large projects (equipment rollouts, network upgrades, among others).
  • Allows field personnel to create their own tickets without having to call in to the help desk
  • Allows us to easily send updates to requesting parties.
  • Easy to transfer ownership of the ticket to other staff.
  • Easy to use with other Atlassian products.
  • The search function is REALLY bad! We had to come up with a formulaic filter to search by a certain field and if that field is not filled out on a ticket, it doesn't find it.
  • You have to completely enter a ticket before you close the ticket, even if you resolve the issue right away.
  • The entry process is tedious so it is hard to enter information on a ticket while you are talking to a customer on the phone.
  • No Integrated Knowledge base
  • No customer access through social media channels
  • No on-the-fly field changes allowed by staff
  • Improved service agent productivity
  • Better tracking of ticket/problem resolution
  • Customer satisfaction rating from reporting parties has increased 20% in first 3 months
Jira is easier to use and holds service agents more accountable due to reporting and tracking tools that are available. It connects better with other products that other departments are using to track programming changes, etc., giving management a single pane of glass to see how things are progressing.

I think it works well for large groups of techs. It also takes a while to set up and the set up can be cumbersome. For example, you will think that you have all the Components added that you need to track and then you have one that hasn't been listed and you cannot add it yourself. It is not quick entry so if you have a really high volume of calls, etc, I could see where it would be hard to keep everything logged. That being said, it is highly customizable so you can really track lots of different things.
