Service Catalog and Request Management

Alloy Navigator Enterprise improves the efficiency of IT teams by separating routine requests from break/fix incident tickets. The new service catalog provides a centralized, consistent process for employees to gain access to standard services, advice, or common pre‐approved changes. It can be utilized to automate standard requests such as password resets, network share access, and account/profile modifications.

Enhanced Self-Service Portal

The redesigned Self Service Portal now adapts to different screen resolutions, and supports both high-resolution displays and tablet devices. In addition to being able to submit incident tickets, employees can monitor their progress and search the knowledge base. It also enables users to browse the service catalog, submit service requests, view equipment available for loan and make reservations.

Consumables & Stock Management

Alloy Navigator Enterprise provides a functional system for managing consumable IT items, including supplies, materials or spare parts such as printer ink, toner, keyboards, mice, batteries and more. The new stock management functionality helps users ensure that all supplies are always in stock and in the right amount. Users can set up alerts to notify appropriate staff members when supplies must be reordered.

Equipment Reservations

Alloy Navigator Enterprise streamlines the management of equipment that IT issues to employees. Newly added reservation queues facilitate the smooth handling of high-demand items, and users now can conveniently reserve equipment right from the self-service portal.

Microsoft Outlook Integration

IT personnel can now visualize Alloy Navigator Enterprise tasks and event dates within Microsoft Outlook’s calendar along with other appointments and folders.

Other Features & Functionality

Alloy Navigator Enterprise now supports Windows Phone 8 and includes an automated reporting generator that can schedule and broadcast reports via e-mail. Other features include quickly inserting frequently used blocks of text, such as standard replies, troubleshooting recipes and signatures, into support tickets. Data archiving and purging, Wizard Forms and the ability to personalize dashboards and calendars as well as automatically track time spent on projects are also supported.
