Overall Satisfaction with SolarWinds Service Desk (SSD)

It is used across the whole organization. It addresses Incident mgmt, change mgmt, purchase orders, and device management mainly for our organization. Allows for everything to be on 1 platform.
  • Notifications and integrations: communicates notices well.
  • Automations: several ways of setting up automations.
  • New ticket notification: refreshes up-to-date tickets which is a newer feature.
  • I'd like to see more notification options in change management.
  • Solarwinds could improve on reporting features and ease of use.
  • Solarwinds has allowed our company to become more organized with our asset tracking.
  • Solarwinds has been helpful to us maintaining our purchase orders.
I'm generally satisfied with Solarwinds and I think it would be a good fit for the right company.

Solarwinds ticketing system has nice features for being able to filter and save filters to easily be able to see which tickets you are looking for. The support team and account reps are very good at responding in a timely manner to issues or questions. It really depends on what expectations a company has as to whether or not Solarwinds would be a good fit for them.

We were looking for a Incident management tool for our internal employees and a way to organize our IT department to work through Issues. We use all facets of Solarwinds -- particularly Incident management, Change management, Purchase Orders (this works, although could be built out better in Solarwinds), Asset Inventory, Device Management. The most important factor was Incident Management - and automation, the more automation the better as we have a slim department and efficiency is huge.
