Pros: The overall integration abilities such as with email and hot tips. Customer service is great, I can typically get a response within 24 hours and usually the same day.

Cons: With each upgrade of the software it's an IT nightmare to perform the upgrade and keep users working because every client has to be manually upgraded as well.

Pros: Software is a Gem for tracking client tickets

Overall: I had an issue with an out of date version, and no longer have support.

Not Only did I receive assistance in helping me resolve the issue, I also received some assistance for improving the way we used Tele-Support.

For the longest time we struggled with having techs add a ticket number to tickets, (they often forgot). during conversation we were given instructions on how to resolve that issue, it was an oversite on our end and can easily be automatically filled in by Tele-support directly.

Second issue we struggled with was being able to preform key word search against Problem notes and Resolution notes. Again, it was just our lack of understanding. We were give a little hand holding and we now see that it was there all along.

What can I say, this team is amazing, all this help for someone who was not even under maintenance. What a gift it was!!!!!

Pros: The ticket itself. Works well for our team to review open issues.

Cons: Not able to have multiple tickets open at one time. Would be a nice feature to help us multi-task better.

Overall: We use this application for a Support Call Center and it works great! We're able to track open/closed tickets with ease. Field customization really helped this application integrate with our existing processes. The bug tracking feature is a great way for us to link specific tickets to open software issues. There are only 2 features we wish it had: 1) the ability to open multiple tickets at once. This would be a nice addition for our constantly multi-tasking staff. 2) the ability to merge/link tickets together.
Their support and sales staff are very easy to work with and are always helpful when we have questions!

Cons: Doesn't interface with larger companies/software products; e.g., Salesforce, Microsoft TFS.

Overall: Our company has been using Tele-Support HelpDesk for several years and it's been a good solid product along the way. Great ability to customize and an overall well-rounded product.

customer running version 2.1 which has been out of production since 2004. Data migration options made available through 2010, before the code was updated to support newer technology.

Comments: We used Tele-support for years as it linked to our CRM product Seamlessly. Giving everyone in the company access to important information. The reporting and data were very beneficial in making decisions in product features and our overall customer support experience. It was easy to set up and maintain and configure the product the way we wanted to use it. Great Help Desk Product!

Pros: Fairly easy implementation. Easy to configure to customer specific needs.

Cons: Technical Support - we had issue with installation and some functions of operation during our trial. Had we not had free support during our trial, we would not be as happy with the product. Better tech support should be offered at no cost for a period of time after purchase (90 days at least)

Overall: For the price, this is a very good product either as a stand-alone, or with it's Act! integration. Our company uses it with Act!, which enables non help-desk users to still keep up with customer issues. The viewer is also a very good tool for users who need information on help support tickets. The system is flexible to meet user specific needs. Reporting functions are good, and new reports can be created as needed.

Pros: The tracking of all e-mails.

Cons: The e-mail client can be improved.

Overall: Tele-Support HelpDesk helps me track software customizations I make for our customers. There´s a lot of e-mail correspondence going on at every inquiry (over years) and with Tele-Support HelpDesk I can keep track of everything. It has helped me in cases when unsatisfied customers complain over something, then I can easily go back in the history and see what´s been agreed earlier so wew can sort things out.

Pros: Ability to Create RMA/Bug Tickets
Ability to Customize the Support Tickets with Customized Fields and Tabs
Good Customer Service
Able to Export Reports to PDF
Ability to add Customized Knowledge Base
E-mail Notifications

Cons: Reporting Function could have more Features/Advanced Customization
A little difficult to learn how to customize at first, but if you need any help, their Customer Service is good.

Overall: We have been using the Tele-Support Helpdesk software for years now and it is a great well rounded software that has a lot of features, but is still great at it's main purpose, which is to create and store Support Tickets. There are also lots of customization options so it can be tailored to your specific needs. In addition, a lot of information can be accessed within each support ticket so you don't have to go searching everywhere. Configuring the program may not be the easiest, but it's in no way the hardest to learn, plus their customer support can help you along the way. The reporting software is also decent, but since we have the SQL module, we can create our own customized reports ourselves as well. Overall, I recommend you give this software a try if you need a robust, feature-filled Help Desk solution.

Pros: Secure, fast, and simple. It's packed with features but you aren't drowned in a UI that you can't manage and navigate. Very easy to learn how to use.

Cons: There aren't really any issues that I would consider a "con", at least that I've personally ran across quite yet.

Overall: The reporting features provide excellent overviews with minimal effort, and looking up RMA/Inquiries is a breeze. This software simply makes my job easier, what more could I ask for?

Pros: Ease of use, speed, simplicity

Cons: looks a bit dated and could do with more contact fields

Overall: We use the software for all our help desk, and projects. The features I love the most are the ability to keep help desk events open and available to work on. This allows us to aggregate the entire time spend on a help desk event instead of having multiple entries like we used to have. Category, products, contact and time editing is far better than what we had and having HD calculate the 6 min increments is such a bonus

Recommendations to other buyers: Do not dismiss this software because it's not browser/cloud based. It's very strong, robust and is the only product of it's type that does this sort of database/client help desk management.

Customer service was friendly and prompt response to my questions and resolution to my problem.

Comments: Resource Dynamics provides free support during the trial period and would recommend to anyone to take advantage of the FREE install and configuration service they offer. The configuration is a bit tricky but they had me installed and configured in less than 30 mins. Instead of spending hours or days reading through the admin guide, I was up and running and creating my own inquiries with Act! the same day. Love this product can't image anyone that uses Act! that would not need/want this Support Solution

Comments: I have used Resource Dynamics' Help Desk for over 8 years in my marketing business. It is essential that I have great support and functionality. RD fills the bill on these and more. The customer support is very powerful and they actually LISTEN to what my problem is and find a way to navigate around and put a solution in place. Ronda is amazing and never makes us feel like its out fault! I also use GoGlobal and find it a powerful solution for connection and an easy to use platform. It is very forgiving!

The TeleSupport HelpDesk is the best I've seen and over the years has proven to be a fundamental part of our business and our customer relations. I highly recommend Resource Dynamics and TeleSupport Help Desk along with Go Global.
