PLEASANTON, Calif. - June 5, 2013 - ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced new pricing policies to drive ITIL adoption by both SMBs and enterprise organizations via its ITIL-Ready Help Desk software, ServiceDesk Plus. For $995, ServiceDesk Plus with integrated Asset and Project management gives organizations the advantages of the ITIL framework at an affordable price. An online demo of ServiceDesk Plus is available at demo.servicedeskplus.com.

ITIL has become the backbone for structuring IT organizations that want to optimize service quality, improve service levels and reduce costs. Without ITIL, IT teams lack the vision needed to proactively identify and resolve problems before they affect services, users and the overall business. ITIL provides a "common sense approach" to IT service support, so each issue is analyzed to determine the root cause. Despite the benefits, many companies find ITIL too complex and expensive to implement and align to their businesses.

"Most of the help desk tools in the market aren't ITIL-Ready," said Uma Shankar, Product Manager at ManageEngine. "Tools that are ITIL-Ready typically aren't user friendly. And they rarely support users who need to manage IT assets and projects. For those capabilities, users would need to integrate third-party tools, which drives up the price of the final solution. This is where ServiceDesk Plus fits in, giving SMBs an ITIL-Ready Help Desk that's pre-integrated with Asset and Project management - for less than $1,000."

With ServiceDesk Plus Enterprise Edition, IT organizations can leverage ITIL processes while unifying their help desk, asset management and project management activities in a single pane of glass. ServiceDesk Plus lets users:

  • Take advantage of ITIL, including incident, problem and change management; CMDB and service catalog
  • Align services according to requesters' needs
  • Proactively identify problems and recommend solutions
  • Ensure service consistency
  • Increase customer satisfaction with IT services
  • Increase efficiency in service delivery
  • Establish well-defined processes with clear documentation
  • Analyze risks associated with not meeting business requirements for IT services
  • Reduce costs when developing procedures and practices within the organization
  • Improve communication and information flows between IT staff and customers

The Professional Edition is $395 and includes both Help Desk and Asset Management capabilities.
