LANdesk upgrades service management software

New version of Service Desk takes 'user-centric' approach

LANDesk Software has launched the latest version of its service management software, claiming that the product represented a "new generation" for help desk software. The company said that Service Desk 7.4 would take a user-centric approach to service provisioning and support.

New additions to the product include LANDesk Self Service, which allows users to log their own incidents and the addition of a Service Catalogue that offers what the company's calls a storefront of services that are available. The latest version also includes a beefed-up Web Desk that lets IT staff access users' computers from remote locations via a web browser. In addition to these, Service Desk 7.4 also provides a Theme Designer that enables configuration of the user interface by applying a supplied theme or the customer's own brand.

Also included with the new product is a broad range of integration tools, including Web APIs and connectors that allow customers to embed web applications and data, and to integrate other business systems, without needing any coding skills.

Steve Daly, president and CEO of LANDesk Software said that the product offered "more out-of-the box capability than alternatives that require a piecemeal and costly approach to achieve this level of functionality and automation. It goes well beyond traditional ticketing and incident management, allowing IT departments to deliver real business value."

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
