Overall Satisfaction with TOPdesk

It's used by a department. It's used for incident management for our external customers for incidents in the industry related to software, process, and hardware.
200 - Service, management, and external.
  • Fast to address incidents, reported by telephone
  • Fast tool to get information about customers
  • Modular, so we started with only incident management, but now we have change management, operations management, and object management
  • Fast replies of questions.
  • In the SSP it is not possible for our customers to get an export of their own incidents in, for example, Excel.
  • Email notification of incidents in the organization, For example, to client managers at our site and customer site.
  • Integration with other tools like Power BI, report manager.
  • Reduced escalation by new employees.
  • More detailed information about customers installations.
Faster, more detailed and self-serviced. Further more. it's easy to use for new employees, instead of the other product.
Reacts very fast. If they didn't, they didn't charge a fee of the consultant.
We still use it!
Incident management is excellent. It's less suited for modifications at the software site to get the interaction. Extern customers, instead of in-house.
