The monthly license fee is 5,000 ZAR, 300 Euros, or 360 USD. There is no fixed or minimum contract period. Initial branding of the system, training, and minor changes are done at no additional cost. thereafter major changes are charged for.

Trial Period

You may use the standard unmodified system for a trial period, with no obligation to continue. During the trial period, updates and modifications will be kept to a minimum and will exclude items such as dedicated domain names and security certificates.


The system contains all the features you would expect from a cloud based system CRM, including but not limited to: Capturing tickets manually or by automated processing of incoming emails, SLA management, full reporting, outbound emails and SMS's, statistics and graphs, emailing of PDF/Excel reports, and self-administration. The CRM does not include telephony, but can integrate to telephony systems.

Typical usage

The 1ServiceDesk system is mostly used by outsourced call centers / BPO (Business Process Outsourcing). We also have the following types of user: Health clinics, Facilities management, IT Help Desks, and Government call centers dealing with National Health, society development, liquor license boards, etc.

Why choose 1ServiceDesk?

We are a small and globally active company with a limited but select client base. There are no hidden costs. Our systems have a verifiable uptime of better than 99%, and are hosted with a trusted high-availability partner in the UK. But above all, you get personal attention to configure exactly the system you need. Although we start with a base product, we can tailor it specifically to meet your unique needs. No single implementation is the same as another. Initial implementation takes from 2 to 7 days.

Next steps

If you would like to explore further please contact me (Dan) using the contact form and tell me what your need is. I will assess and if we can help, the next step would be for us to meet and discuss your business objectives, and the best way to set up the system for your trial. This would include understanding the query categories you deal with, SLA's you need to meet, the type of information you need to capture, and your reporting requirements. Thereafter I will set up your trial, and train one or more of your users. (This is very quick as the system is intuitive and easy to use).  After your trial period if you want the keep the system on, we can start introducing any larger customisation you might need.
