Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Service Desk (SSD)

We were using a developer's tool to run a pseudo help desk and it reached its end of life. We needed to move on and are now loving Samanage.
  • The Workflow engine is great and they are in the process of making it even better.
  • The Asset management portion functions smoothly and the utility was easy to push out via GPO.
  • The setup of the product is what sells it. Very easy to set up every function, very intuitive and not a taxing process as some can be. Lastly, you can integrate with an SSO company called OneLogin. A very simple, free process with them and you are integrated with ADUC!
  • We haven't worked much yet with the built in API code or Zapier. So not sure if we will run into any headaches connecting it to our current "helpdesk".
  • Increased employee proficiency.
  • Better customer service.
  • ServiceNow, SysAid and BMC Track-It!
We looked at ServiceNow, SysAid and Track-It! and Samanage came out on top because it did everything well. The other three were all more proficient in some things, but they were not a complete package.
Couldn't give higher as only had to use them in the initial setup with extra questions but they were great.

  • Price
  • Product Usability
Product usability should always be first and foremost. You will always have to decide on price, but if you can't use the product effectively, then it doesn't matter what it cost. Solarwinds Service Desk (Samanage) was very easy to use and navigate and it took no time to get everyone up to speed.
