How To Choose
One of the primary differences between Remedy and Remedyforce is that Remedyforce is only available via the Salesforce platform – and therefore, no on-premises delivery option is available. Remedyforce is well-suited for the mid-market because of its Fast Time to Value with built-in templates, and Business Relationship Managers. Remedy 9, on the other hand, is available either on-premises or on-demand. Both Remedy and Remedyforce offer full ITIL V3 support out of the box, and both solutions are fully customizable.
