NC State Remedy System

When folks speak of "Remedy @ NC State", they are probably referring to the problem tracking system that was in wide use by a variety of technical support staff in many different colleges and departments here at NC State before we transitioned to ServiceNow. Since we have transitioned to ServiceNow, these pages are mostly obsolete. Much of the information here is out of date and any links that interfaced with the decommissioned Remedy system will fail to function as expected.

More precisely, "Remedy" is the name of a software product owned by BMC called the Remedy Action Request System (ARS). Remedy ARS is a Client-server software application toolset. Here at NC State, we have used the Remedy AR System to develop a problem tracking system for help desk staff and other technical support staff.

The NC State Remedy system has approximately 300 active users attending to 185 workgroups spread across 55 colleges, departments and support organizations. During 2007, approximately 96,450 calls were logged in the Remedy system.

These pages document the NC State Remedy implementation. Here you will find information about recent changes to the system, documentation and training materials, client downloads and links for requesting new Remedy accounts, workgroups and solutions.

If your college or department is interested in utilizing the NC State Remedy system as part of your customer support effort, please contact the Remedy services group by email at:
