Other Veteran SysAiders Say: ITs That Simple and IT Works! With my managements support, I was able to show how easy SysAid is to use. The feedback has been absolutely fantastic – they think its an amazing system. Sarit Hershkovitz, Help Desk Manager, IT Division, CBC - Coca-Cola Israel After explaining what SysAid does – how it lets you keep track of service requests, send an automatic screenshot, document the problem for further reference, use the Knowledgebase and so on – users are motivated to help us in order to help themselves. In addition, if a user comes along and tries to submit a drive-by service request, I politely remind them that we have this superb tool which they can use for entering such requests. Our users now use only SysAid to submit service requests to the IT department. Sven Nosse, System Administrator Ebro Electronic, Germany
