We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It has helped the help desk team. We get our tickets in and are able to support our customers, the end-users, with this solution."
"The discovery feature is very flexible."
"This product solidly handles incident management, problem management, and change management."
"It is stable and its technical support is good and quick."
"This solution is a single-storage for our user community to submit help desk tickets."
"The most valuable feature is that this is a Cloud solution."
"ServiceNow was the first true enterprise to service management platform."
"The feature that I have found most valuable from ServiceNow is the ability to assign sub-tasks to different teams, including problem tickets and the regular and chain tasks."
"It gave us professionalized, faster incident turn around times. Improved quality of information shared with our customers. Over time we build an extensive knowledge base that assists in both self-service as in services provided by the servicedesk when handling incidents."
"I have found that sorting and grouping functions are particularly useful."
"ServiceNow has also enabled our Management Consulting business to provide Digital Transformation services for our clients the world over, as we use the platform as an accelerator for doing IT Target Operating Model transformations."
"ServiceNow gives us a lot for free: workflows, organizational structures, service portal, forms, reporting, disaster recovery, and so on."
"The workflow should be made to be more user-friendly. It should also have more granular scalability."
"The mobile version of this product does not support asset management."
"The pricing could be a little lower and the product should cover more iTel versions."
"It is pretty clunky and not very intuitive. Even though I have used it for many years, I don't think it is a very good ITSM platform in general. In the telecom space, a lot of telco providers use this solution, but from my perspective, it is not very user friendly. It is a bit more laborious. There are still too many human touchpoints. There can be a little bit more automation. It would also be good to integrate it with other tools. Integration is quite difficult, especially in the telco space."
"I do not like the user interface."
"Transparency in the pricing model needs to be improved."
"Service mapping could be less complicated."
"The major area for improvement for our needs would be monitoring the metrics of the times to acknowledge and resolve issues and escalations."
"There should be fewer clicks and faster integrations between solutions."
"Creating service catalog forms could be made easier."
"I am interested to see the firm's strategic plans for Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML), and how the particular areas it will expand on from its existing investments (that feature, for example, in its ITSM Pro and CSM Pro modules)."
"Integration capabilities can improve."
"Our costs are well over $250,000."
"This solution has good pricing."
"The licensing for FootPrints is a perpetual license with an annual support fee."
"The mandatory minimum is US$ 20,000 for licensing."
"The licenses are expensive."
"The setup cost is high compared to others, especially when the scope is not fixed."
"I am from Brazil. For Latin American markets, ServiceNow is very expensive as compared to other vendors, such as VMware."
"$230 per user."
"It is very expensive because it is a big organization. You have to pay for additional things."
"ServiceNow tends to be a little bit more expensive as compared to BMC Helix ITSM."
"There are licensing fees."
