We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Using their problem management process, we can use parent/child tickets and set up public views for our problem work orders.Using the Help Desk and Purchasing modules, they let us keep track of all the issues in our organization and analyze them for trends.Track-It! has many features that help make us more efficient and cost effective as a department.We use it to create and manage our work orders.Our users have come to expect availability and quick responses, and we are able to provide this thanks to the Track-IT! solution.The customization of the product and reporting capabilities have allowed us to provide upper management the graphs (data) they request that helps validate specific needs that we (IT) have.Our efficiency has improved drastically due to a massive reduction in phone calls.As a department, we have been able to identify problems and resolve them faster because of the centralized database.

This solution is a single-storage for our user community to submit help desk tickets.In the Service Portal, the widget concept - and the way we have developed our widget - is pretty simple. We can leverage a lot on top of it.HR Case Management and Customer Service Management are two of the key areas which clients are using.Discovery has reduced, on average, the time to build/deploy devices within our environment by one hour. This may not seem like much but it adds up over time. It also reaps additional time savings with its ability to capture changes through subsequent discoveries over the life of the device.I have found many features that are important and that are easier when compared to Remedy; for example, the Scripted REST APIs and the Flow Designer... The Client scripts are simpler when you compare with Remedy.Creating a ticket is much simpler in this tool. That is one big advantage. Also, the simplicity and ease of use are much better. I've used HPSM and it is very complex in comparison to ServiceNow.It actually has quite a wide list of modules and processes. Currently, we are implementing project management and Scaled Agile Framework for one of our customers.One feature of ServiceNow that is important is the workflow engine. From my perspective [as a consultant] the power to be able to structure processes, represent workforce management for organizations, and the visibility provided by the reporting are additional top features.

Cons
Track-It! works great for a mid-size company, but anything over 700 employees, and trying to use Track-It! for any other areas of the business is difficult.Their self-service is not user friendly.There are a few items that I would like changed or extra features that could be added to our current version of this software, but those are all going to be addressed in a future software update.The area where we would like to see improvement is in the asset management module.

I do not like the user interface.For healthcare, which is a pretty audited environment, there are no concrete solutions for digital signatures, apart from our license with Adobe, so it requires orchestration.HR Service Management is one module that needs a lot of improvement because it's a pretty new module. It was introduced in the last two years. It's becoming more mature day by day, but there is a lot of scope for improvement in that module.Where it could be improved is Discovery. This may sound odd since I just praised the value of ServiceNow Discovery, but improvements to its automatic detection, the breadth of devices, and the depth of devices covered, as well as keeping up with new technologies, are all essential.The standard UI is very restricted. It doesn't look as good, compared to Remedy. Building your own UI requires some additional coding...When it comes to reference fields, there are some limitations where you aren't able to use them, like in relationship queries. In Remedy, when you click a menu, you get options directly, whereas here, if you use a reference field, it points you to a different form. So the UI experience totally changes for the end user.Change Management is the area I have found that this tool can be improved because there are so many fields which are missing, such as urgency of the customer request and how the priority is defined. These are some of the areas in which I found that BMC Remedy is much better than ServiceNow.There are Virtual Task Boards in the tool in the latest releases. There are many of them in the Scaled Agile Framework. There is some room there for improvement. It's really quite promising but, at the same time, it could be improved and I believe it will be improved soon.

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Initially, the licensing model ServiceNow came up with was very good. But now, from a licensing perspective, they are changing their model day by day. It is becoming a bit expensive for customers.Isn't pricing always too much? We really do chafe at the ITIL licensing. ITOM is also pretty expensive.ServiceNow is a leader and its pricing is quite good, quite competitive... Sometimes some plugins are not priced reasonably but, generally, the platform itself, its modules, are priced reasonably.ServiceNow pricing is an art, not a science. The deal depends on how commercially savvy you are, which does make it something that is quite difficult to get right. It is most definitely an opportunity area for ServiceNow to improve and have more visibility around pricing of the different products within the platform.It's sold as a less expensive solution, but it has to be highly modified. That's where you get into the cost.We know that ServiceNow is not cheap, it's more expensive than other solutions. But we are trying to increase our ability to handle tickets so that the cost per ticket is less.It has a higher cost compared to local/regional solutions.
