Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the management of projects from start to finish.""It handles ticketing pretty well, and it's not something I have many critiques for.""I like the search function up top where if you know what you're searching for, you can find it pretty quickly. Because you've got the option to change what the search parameters are, whether you're searching for a project, quote, ticket, or an invoice, you can kind of pick and choose what you're looking for.""The initial setup isn't too difficult."

More ConnectWise Manage Pros »

"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.""In terms of the most valuable features, it's nice to have everything in one place. Things are easy to follow up on. ServiceNow provides that workflow. I know at some level it is in the pipeline and then if I need to follow up, everything's there. Those are the key benefits of ServiceNow."

Cons
"It needs to be easier to share tickets between users who need to work together.""Sometimes it is a little bit slow, which is the only complaint I have about it.""If you've got 40 tickets that come in, that get generated, that don't get properly tagged with the company, you can't just check them all and reassign them to another company. You have to individually reassign each one of those tickets to a new company.""A lot of times, it'll take a couple of moments for things to go through. If you're not patient about it, it may seem like things aren't working."

More ConnectWise Manage Cons »

"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.""I find ServiceNow to be a little bit clunky. If I need to report an issue they have a number of different options. I can report an issue, I can ask a question, I can make a request and it has varying levels of importance or levels of attention required. I find that what's required to submit is not always clear."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are some different add-ons and benefits that are optional and come at an additional cost.""The cost can be the main barrier. It's not a solution for a three person company. It just isn't going to be cost effective. Because ConnectWise Manage does have everything there, the licensing is a little bit restrictive as far as how they want to granularly assign licenses rather than having more of an all-inclusive package."

More ConnectWise Manage Pricing and Cost Advice »

"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."
