PeopleSoft Vantive HelpDesk

Published: 12 July 2001

Analyst(s): John Inverso


PeopleSoft has begun the integration of its help desk software with its CRM solutions. However, Vantive HelpDesk is not part of that integration. The product has not been discontinued; rather, PeopleSoft is still supporting and selling Vantive HelpDesk for the foreseeable future. PeopleSoft simply chose not to use the Vantive platform for its foray into service desk/CRM integration. As it stands, Vantive HelpDesk remains a competent internal IT help desk package with some strong tracking and self-help features. It has a good reputation for scalability and ease of use.
