ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the general availability of the very first speech-driven mobile app for the IT help desk, the ServiceDesk Plus voice-enabled iPhone app. The app sets a new standard for help desk software, incorporating powerful speech recognition technology to let IT professionals manage the entire lifecycle of help desk incidents — from executing commands and dictating notes to assigning or closing out tickets. Previewed at Mobile World Congress 2013, the ServiceDesk Plus voice-enabled iPhone app is now available on the Apple App store via http://ow.ly/hT7hv. Also, a video demo of the ServiceDesk Plus iPhone app can be viewed at http://ow.ly/i79PD. Editions for other operating systems will follow later this year.
“Providing best-in-breed IT help desk support is a challenging task which requires a lot of organization, patience and employee time,” said Craig Cameron, global IT project manager at ArjoHuntleigh (UK). “Our IT department was coming under increasing strain resulting from a growing number of support requests. This put added pressure on our antiquated ticket management process and created unnecessary stress for staff. The addition of an integrated voice recognition mobile app into ManageEngine ServiceDesk Plus means the team can now respond to tickets from any location, off any device, and without the need to type. This luxury feature saves my team immense amounts of time, enabling them to focus on other business critical IT projects.”
Setting the New Help Desk Standard
Until now, the majority of IT help desk technicians have been glued to their desktop computers, troubleshooting and emailing end-users. A mobile app can free those technicians to handle trouble tickets from anywhere, anytime. But if the app does not offer speech recognition, the techs are forced to use tiny onscreen keyboards that can compromise productivity. With the voice-enabled ServiceDesk Plus mobile app, techs can forgo the keyboard and dictate their commands and notes — reducing frustration, improving productivity, and increasing customer satisfaction.
Incorporating proven speech recognition technology from Nuance Communications, Inc., the ServiceDesk Plus iPhone app provides an interactive, Siri-like user experience. It executes spoken commands and performs voice-to-text data entry, enabling users to:
- Dictate tickets
- Edit tickets
- Reply to tickets
- Close tickets
In addition to the voice features above, the ServiceDesk Plus iPhone app includes a number of features that can be accessed via the iPhone touchscreen, enabling users to:
- Create new tickets, categorize, and edit request details
- Assign/pick up requests
- Reply to users with resolution and close tickets from the app
- Track time spent on tickets via WorkLog
- Perform searches based on subject, requester or priority
- Customize the request view
- Track the time spent on tickets using WorkLog
- Update the status of the requests
Pricing and Availability
The voice-enabled iPhone app for ServiceDesk Plus is available today, free of charge, from the Apple App Store via http://www.manageengine.com/products/service-desk/mobile-app.html. Support for additional mobile operating systems will be announced in the coming months.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
