Cons
"The administrative side of it could be a little more intuitive. This is the side that you use to do customizations. It is very customizable, but it could be a bit more intuitive and user-friendly. Their support can also be better in terms of response time. Currently, their response time is a little slow."

"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."
