Customize your own future-proof sequence of HTTP requests and use them to interact with JSON-based REST APIs. This way you can achieve exactly what you want without the need for complex bespoke scripting.

Construction in our codebase: keeping up with the times


At TOPdesk, we are serious about our product. One way we are showing this is by staying up-to-date with current technologies. If nothing ever changed, you would be less interested in using our software. Eventually TOPdesk wouldn’t exist anymore.

Making TOPdesk more accessible

In the past year we've made some big steps in making TOPdesk more accessible.
