In every organization, change is integral to growth and development. But with change comes risk, and assessing risk well is key to success. Let’s imagine the following situation: we’re looking to buy a brand-new kitchen. Of course, choosing a model that we can afford is the first step. We also need to consider the kitchen’s installment, however. So, alongside the primary question of pricing, we need to ask ourselves questions like: What material should the cupboards be made of? Do we need a plumber for the dishwasher installation? What about an electrician? And how will the new kitchen fit with the aesthetic of the rest of our home?

Do you know what software tools your company is using? Okay, good. But do you know which users actually need a licence for those tools? And do they have one?

To better address this, we’re happy to share that registering and maintaining licences for your software packages is now fully integrated in the new Asset Management.

The TOPdesk Self-Service Portal (SSP) is a knowledge base, customer portal and service catalogue in one. It’s a place where your customers quickly find what they need, when they need it – without your help. This helps you create a simple, familiar interface for your customers based on the services you deliver. And above all: it reduces the repetitive calls to your service desk, giving them more time to work on critical issues.
But do you actually know if the content that you provide is, in fact, being used? How many visitors you get per day? Which pages are viewed the most? How do your customers navigate through the SSP? Do they search rather than navigate through the pages? Some reports can answer a few of those questions, but we noticed there is not one overview where you find all this info in one place. This is where the Google Analytics integration, linking your TOPdesk instance with Google’s analytics capabilities, comes into play.
We built our TOPdesk products with one simple goal in mind: to help you provide excellent service delivery at all times, for all your people.
But while we’re proud of our achievements to date, we are always on the lookout for ways to further improve our platform. That’s why we made a number of key improvements over the past year based on the valuable feedback that you, our customers, have provided us with.
As a passionate believer in the power of peer-to-peer collaboration, this feedback is not merely helpful to improving TOPdesk — it’s absolutely essential.
This article will cover a quick recap of our overarching product vision and strategy, the changes that we made over the past year, and what we have in store for the upcoming year. Oh, and if you want to check in more regularly then make sure to sign up for our quarterly product updates.
But for now, sit back, strap in, and let's take a whirlwind tour of our plans for the future.

On Thursday 20th May, we celebrated Global Accessibility Awareness Day. Not only did we champion the importance of creating a more accessible world for all but we also celebrated some fantastic recent achievements that are helping us achieve this mission. Here, I’d like to share our experiences of trying to make the TOPdesk product more accessible over the past year – and will also be offering some tips to help product developers and service managers on their own journey towards creating a more accessible future.
We’re excited to announce that we’ve recently developed a new Zapier integration, meaning it’s now easier than ever before to integrate TOPdesk into your existing ecosystem.
