Performance, Support, Easy-to-use. The Performance is incredible – one of the fastest Helpdesk systems I have ever worked with. The Support is just amazing. Any inquiries will be answered quickly and professionally. Easy-to-use: almost no one, from our ~100 employees, needed any training. It’s self-explanatory.

Teams integration is fantastic and has improved user interaction by at least 500%. Tech team is notified in Teams when tickets come in. Users see tech questions and comments in their teams. Automation features are great. Knowledgebase is more than adequate and search functions work well.
