The Remedy Action Request System, also know as Remedy or ARS, is a client-server trouble ticketing application produced by BMC and used by organizations to track internal problems and customer-reported issues. If a customer calls customer service to report a service problem, such as Internet access or telephone problems, the customer service agent would open a Remedy ticket. Remedy then routes the ticket to the appropriate trouble queue and group responsible for resolving the problem.
