assyst vs Cherwell 

Simplicity is at the core of our philosophy 

Simple setup, simple flexibility, and simple integration are the cornerstones of assyst, accelerating the speed at which you can develop your IT maturity. Built to deliver the highest possible value with the lowest possible overhead, assyst is a truly streamlined IT management solution. With it, you can focus your efforts on building new IT capabilities and innovations, not wasting time maintaining your IT management technology footprint. 

True flexibility without development 

Cherwell claims to be a codeless platform, but it requires specialist development skills to modify the application. Over time the complexity of customization grows, leading to complications with maintenance, integrations, and upgrades. assyst is designed to give our customers complete flexibility without coding. Instead of complex scripting and coding, you get easy-to-use configuration tools, like our unique drag-and-drop service designer.
