Our R&D group uses JIRA/Agile. Our Support group uses NetSuite. We have a custom interface that allows bugs found by Support to flow into JIRA and then JIRA keeps the NetSuite issue up to date with JIRA changes.
For various reasons, our Support group is looking to replace NetSuite. They are looking at ZenDesk and UserVoice, both of which integrate with JIRA.
I am wondering what other systems Support groups might be using that integrate well with JIRA?
JIRA Service Desk is a full-fledged service desk solution which may be used not only as an internal IT Support tool, but as well for external customer support.
You may watch the full demo of its features on the link below:
You can install it on JIRA via the JIRA UPM (Find new Add-ons) and evaluate it for free for 30 days.
JIRA Service desk is awesome but one big pain issue that exists is the fact that -
"Note: JIRA Service Desk is a plugin for JIRA. The JIRA Service Desk license type and user count must match that of the JIRA license it is being used with. For instance, a 25 User Commercial JIRA license will require a 25 User Commercial JIRA Service Desk license."
It's just not fine, because service desk might need only 20 licenses where as JIRA can be used by thousands of users.
We commissioned WDCi to write us an integration process using the Dell Boomi Atom cloud service.
Here is the case study: http://www.wdcigroup.net/casestudy/WhippleHill_CStudy.pdf
Here is an outline of details: http://www.wdcigroup.net/wedidintegration_netsuitejira.html
In theory we could have learned Boomi ourselves and written our own integration. But the WDCi approach was cheaper than investing the time to deal with the Boomi learning curve.
We have been very pleased with the integration. I have no connection with WDCi -- that is I'm not plugging my company or a partner or anything like that.
We ended up selecting Freshdesk.com based on the user interface, functionality and straight forward adoption. JIRA Service Desk just seemed a bit clunky and was one of the quickly ruled out options from a UI perspective, although it appears that they've made some improvements in their latest releases.
