Helpdesk software: Intuit Track-It 6.0

If you ever have to hang on the phone waiting for tech support, just pray that the guy at the other end is using software like Track-It 6.0 to manage your call.

Clich here to see a screen shot.

Heavy-duty helpdesk software can carry a six-figure price tag, making Track-It relatively cheap. To say it is scaleable is an understate-ment: a veritable laundry-list of add-on modules includes giving global Web access, soft-ware deployment tools, a self-service module (for end users) and a knowledge base.

Like its rivals, Track-It is highly customisable and supports the most commonly used relational database platforms — in our case, Oracle or SQL Server. It also provides automatic trouble-ticket escalation and notification capabilities, which make it ideal for multi-tiered support environments in which problems are delegated to specialised workgroups.

New features include the Technician Dashboard, which gives a simple graphical view of a support agent’s current workload (reminiscent of Outlook’s Today view). Track-It also offers a high level of integration between the IT helpdesk and the asset management functions. It can be used as a comprehensive asset management tool to monitor and manage your hardware and software inventory, or to detect the presence of unauthorised data files — MP3 or JPG, for example — on the network.

Price: from $US495 (single user); $US995 (standard); $US3495 (enterprise)

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.
