Overall Satisfaction with SysAid

It is an ITSM used to measure performance of both IT vendors as well as the internal team. Provides traceability and KPIs for various service-based scenarios. Assists in identifying training requirements and identifying defective equipment. It assists in balancing the workload among technicians. It is a tool that assists in project management as well as providing a knowledge base to fall back on.
  • Customization of end-user forms.
  • Automation of ticketing functions.
  • Management of large volumes of data.
  • Initial setup is complicated.
  • Patches can sometimes cause problems.
  • Availability of previous versions.
  • Streamlined vendor performance.
  • Streamlined internal IT team performance.
  • Reduced downtime on systems.
Unfortunately, we have not evaluated anything other than SysAid. Based on experience from other firms, I do recommend SysAid as apposed to free systems, as support is miles ahead as well as the availability of regular updates. System stability and uptime are much higher than those free systems, overall much better.
An immediate response from knowledgeable consultants who are ever ready to assist. Good knowledge base. I removed 1 point because previous versions of both patches and full installations are difficult to come by. Consultants go out of their way to assist by any means possible and are very patient and friendly.

Suitable scenarios
Human Resources, IT, Workshop, internal services, service departments, online ordering, SLA enforcement, public-facing system for service providers, schools, and universities.

Unsuitable scenarios:
A Medical center, clinic, VoIP environments, food businesses, and data restricted environments. Even though I listed these as unsuitable scenarios, the system's wide range of customization should allow for a successful implementation.
