"Aegis has proven to be an invaluable tool for our business as it allows us to track client issues and stock with minimal effort. Previously these tasks were spread across several databases and programs, however Aegis has been able to resolve this into central program and provide reliability for our business. The sales and service from the Aegis team has been extremely good."
Rob Kiernan, General Manager, Rinex Technology (Australia)
"We have been using Aegis Defect Tracking for more than 2 years and now decided to upgrade to Aegis Help Desk. Product is great and support is excellent."
Thomas Gakenholz, Manager Post Sales Support & Service, SOFTPRO GmbH & Co.KG (Germany)
"We have been looking for a new service tracking system over the past 2 years now and have trialed everything from small to enterprise type packages. All of them claimed to be able to fit our requirements but in the end fell short. Through Aegis we have been able to find a flexible solution that can be customised to our specific requirements. We are now bringing a much higher level of service to our clients without increasing our internal overheads."
Heath Donald, Key Account Manager, Corporate Systems Integration Pty Ltd (Australia)
"Thanks, you are really fast....excellent service."
Raul Molina, Infrastructure Manager, Media Planning Group (Mexico)
"Customer Support was a nightmare, until we found Aegis. We had to live with a central incident database, individual email boxes, a generic email boxes, excel spreadsheets and word documents in order to cover our support needs. We are now using Aegis where everything is integrated, incidents, all related emails, attachments, notes and follow up of all problems. When a support team member is absent, we can use the system to look at the problems he is working on. And tailoring the tool to our needs is extremely flexible."
Philippe Taymans, Customer Services, Proton World International n.v (Belgium)

Needless to say we are very happy with what it has been able to do."
Yann Gouillou, Customer Support, Rinex Technology (Australia)
"I reviewed many products before deciding that Aegis is the best value for money solution in the market. The quality of support provided by Abacus Systems, both pre and post sales, has been nothing short of remarkable. The workflow, notification and escalation features have got our IT and customer service help desks 'running like clockwork' and the monitoring and management features provided by Aegis are instrumental in ensuring they stay that way."
Jonathan Fielder, Systems Manager, Entertainment Distributors Company (Australia)

Paul Johnston, Development Manager, Forte Solutions (New Zealand)
"I have not used any other help desk system before but have looked at many. This package has the best layout of any I've seen. Several of our employees have worked on others and like this one the best. We have done extensive customization without the need for programming and this is where the product really excels. We are very satisfied with the product and would strongly recommend this product to my other service business associates."
Philip J. Michel, President, The MAC Companies (USA)

"Aegis has facilitated the rapid growth of our Technical Support Services team. Communication and workflow between Technical Support Sites has improved and issues are attended to on an organized stage by stage basis. When a new Technical Support staff member starts I just show them the Aegis desktop shortcut, a few simple steps and they are away logging, editing, and assigning incidents. The after sales support is excellent."
Ivan Bate, Team Leader Technical Support Services, Business Focus IT (Malaysia)

Karen McGregor, IT Manager, Insurance Australia Broking (Australia)
"We're very happy with the product thus far .. our implementation of the Service Desk has others within our organisation asking for access. Also the people who look after our billing are now looking at utilising Aegis to collate the billing information in summary form replacing a lot of work in our ERP application. Where some calls were never placed through the Service Desk processes to 'save costs' these people are now recognising the benefits of that the software provides and are routing calls where we want them to be."
"I am impressed at the speed we can implement new facilities with the appropriate configuration changes and I'm extremely impressed by the response of your support team - it's very refreshing to see a commitment of this degree."
Allan Howard, Facilities Manager, Volante Systems (Australia)
"My requirements for a Help Desk solution included: support for multiple users, searchable knowledgebase, call escalation, history of call assignments, user-defined data values and ease of use. Aegis not only met these requirements, it exceeded them. The Explorer-like user interface was instantly familiar and totally customizable via its Data Views, Sorts and Filters. And, the integrated Client and Asset management modules are as feature-rich as many stand-alone products."
William L. Fultz, I.S. Manager, Prolift Industrial Equipment (USA)
"We have been using Aegis to help us manage our internal support desk for over 3 years with great success. This product is simple to install, easy to use, highly customizable and very reliable.

It is great to see that the product continues to improve and increase functionality to better meet users needs."

Tim Wilson, President, Corporate Computer Technologies (USA)

"While there are currently six users on the system, we foresee the growth to ten users in the near future. This system is far ahead of the one that we were using previously."
