This characterizes the software solution
Our offering, Freshservice, is the award-winning ITSM product from Freshworks, a global multi-product company with over 25,000 business customers worldwide. Our goal with Freshservice is to modernize IT and other business functions with a refreshingly user-friendly, easy-to-configure IT service desk solution.

The Freshservice IT Service Management solution follows ITIL guidelines and best practices with a simple, refreshing and intuitive user experience, bringing ITIL processes such as incident, service request, problem, project, change and release management directly into a service desk. All of these processes revolve around IT assets deployed in a robust CMDB to manage your configuration items (CIs). Freshservice also lets you publish your solution articles to the knowledge base, which is hosted in the cloud. Freshservice strives to make IT support fun, with its gamification system to keep support agents motivated and productive. Freshservice is a product based on Freshworks’ experience in delivering user-friendly omnichannel support solutions.

Freshservice is a highly scalable solution that can accommodate as many licenses as our customers need. An agent is the team member who handles incoming requests. Administrators who need occasional access can use day passes that allow access until the end of the day.
We do not support concurrent licensing. Each agent that logs into the Freshservice instance requires their own license, depending on whether they are full-time* or occasional**. However, Freshworks provides alternative ways for agents to work with the helpdesk. It depends on how often you log in and what access rights the technicians need. Change requestors, end users, approvers, and CAB members are not agents within the Freshservice platform and therefore are not billed. If custom integration with third party software (not available in our marketplace) is required, this would incur additional costs. The cost will depend on the type of integration and complexity.
*Full-time Agents: Full-time agents are the core technical and operational team that reports to your service desk to provide support.
**Occasional Agents: Occasional agents check in at irregular intervals to oversee the task or when their involvement is required during a specific time period, such as the supervisor or visiting maintenance technician. This way, people from other departments in your company, such as engineering and troubleshooting, can log on and focus on the specific problems and requests from time to time. And you can do this without having to purchase an additional agent access for an entire month.
