Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used a different product, and switched because it was easier to set up and customize to the needs of our business compared to its competition.

How was the initial setup?

A bit of both. It involved more customizations/work than we initially assumed.

What about the implementation team?

Both. Have a dedicated resource(s) from in house that works with the vendor in developing and setting ServiceNow Modules/Applications. It's very important to use an experienced vendor team that has dealt with complexities in implementing a ServiceNow environment. You should also have clear functional requirements/functional specifications from the beginning before any ServiceNow development is done.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
