The system lets us employees submit service requests in a central location, and it takes a lot of the "running around" out of the equation. If we use it right, then the amount of time that we spend having to deal with IT problems is greatly dimisned, and that means that I am much more productive.
Well, it's a really good product, lots of good features, but I think that The learning curve is a little steeper than I would like, but once you get it down it's really intuitive. I would like it see it be a touch more user friendly.
I would just be sure that you actually use it instead of trying to call IT, because that really just clogs up the system. I've noticed that they are much faster responding to my problems when I use the Microfocus service desk and not just try to call them and troubleshoot things.
The problems that I solved i guess are that we have a centralized location where we have a productive, responsive service environment that gets our problems solved faster. More time doing stuff I need to do and less time worrying about IT problems. I guess I don't have a lot of IT problems, but this helps it go faster regardless.
