Overall Satisfaction with SysAid

SysAid is being used at our organization as an ITSM tool to effectively deliver IT services to our organization. We are using it for ticket management, self-service knowledge base, asset management, patch management, and reporting. The goal is to eventually roll this out to our entire global footprint.
  • SysAid ticket management is completely customizable to fit our business needs.
  • Asset management gives complete visibility into assets across the organization and reporting.
  • The self-service portal is extremely user friendly and cuts down on the amount of tickets that actually make it into the queue.
  • Active directory integration is fantastic.
  • Customer support is excellent.
  • The onboarding process is amazing and leaves no stone unturned.
  • The integrated remote control piece works but we miss some features of a more robust product.
  • There are tons of customizations that can be made but sometimes navigation is difficult to find a setting--but the help feature is excellent.
  • We have never had a system in place to categorize and keep track of incoming requests, and SysAid had made this an easy transition.
  • SysAid is one of the more affordable options when compared to other products in this space.
  • SysAid was one application that we looked into that provided us the single pane of glass with all the needed features in one easy-to-use cloud-based application.
Chat is very responsive and straight to the point.

Do you think SysAid delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SysAid's feature set?


Did SysAid live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of SysAid go as expected?


Would you buy SysAid again?


There are a few user interface issues that we are seeing especially in the Project Management piece that would need to be improved upon
The Onboarding process was very helpful and well planned out.
This is the first implementation of a help desk system within our organization. Users are used to making a phone calls and getting help immediately. The end-user portal is easy for end users to navigate and submit tickets, making this transition a lot easier for our customers.

Evaluating SysAid and Competitors

  • Price
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
  • Product Reputation
Single most important factor was the product features coupled with the price of the product. Cheaper then the majority of others we looked into.
SysAid was the one product that had every ITSM tool that we needed, was a single application, and offered at an affordable price.

SysAid Implementation

It probably took us longer than most to get things setup, configured and used because of our companies fear of change.
Yes - Weekly call that allowed us time to prepare for the next steps.
Change management was a major issue with the implementation
  • user adaptation
  • changing users mindsets to submit requests

SysAid Training

The training and onboarding that we had was fantastic and very helpful.

Configuring SysAid

Use the SysAid onboarding team to help get things setup. If you dont, good luck!
