Quotes From Members Comparing ServiceNow vs. Spiceworks

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
It provides internal clients with greater transparency about their projects and deliverables.The biggest feature is that it is cloud-based, so it's always updated, it's always current. We don't have to worry about patches, revisions. We're always working with the latest version.It uses a common base of data and allows different types of records to pull from that same base of data.We can keep track of incidences. There is a bucket where we keep all our information, and it enables communication between stakeholders. It helps us collaborate with each other.If it is a high priority, they will respond very quickly. If it is a low priority issue, it might take some time, some three or four days. I would rate the technical support as a 10 out of 10.The most recent addition of SAM Premium is a game changer for many organizations.The look and feel is a valuable benefit for adoption.​The workflow capability for easy setup is powerful.

Cons
The setup was time-consuming and required a lot of internal resources.Some enhancements to the self-service platform would be helpful. That part is still a little barebone... Also, the mobile app is not bad, but it's limited.The scalability needs improvement.The ability to embed help information onto the screens.We would like to have an Asset Management and/or Project Management feature enabled in this version and in the IT Service Management edition.The Express edition does not allow the option for scripting.I would like to see Advanced Intelligent Automation.Local solutions have lower costs.

Pricing and Cost Advice
It has a higher cost compared to local/regional solutions.The first impact for the customer is that it is expensive, but do not forget that it is a solution that includes infrastructure; a single cost, easy to justify.
