    How are customer service and support?

    The technical support we have experienced was excellent.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is really easy. Having a complex environment could add to the installation time but typically the solution can be up and fully operational in six to eight weeks' time.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The solution is priced for medium to enterprises sized businesses. However, it is expensive compared to competitors. Small businesses would have a hard to justify the price, it would not be cost-effective for them.

    What other advice do I have?

    Those wanting to automate all of your internal functional departments under one system platform I would advise before implementing this solution to train and educate your teams on the use of these types of solutions first. This will allow for an easier transition.

    I rate ServiceNow an eight out of ten.

    Very stable and helpful for change management, but the interface can be more intuitive

    What is our primary use case?

    I mostly use it for change management.

    What is most valuable?

    Change management is most valuable.

    What needs improvement?

    The interface can be a bit more intuitive.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    It has been in the company for quite a while. It's not new at all. 

    I've been using it on and off for about eight or nine years. I work with this solution on almost a daily basis at this point, at least three times a week.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I find it to be very stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    I'm not in a good position to give a judgment on its scalability, but in terms of its usage, because it is a ticketing system, it is used for all the incidents. Our service desk uses it primarily to issue tickets, requests, changes, and so on. There are about 15 people who use it very regularly for those types of purposes. It is being used extensively.

    How are customer service and support?

    I never had to get in touch with their technical support.

    How was the initial setup?

    I wasn't here when it came online.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would rate it a seven out of 10.

    Integrates well, intuitive workflows, and responsive technical support
    Pros and Cons
    • "I have found the workflows and integration the most valuable in this solution."
    • "The solution is lacking in the mobile application area that could be improved."

    What is most valuable?

    I have found the workflows and integration the most valuable in this solution.

    What needs improvement?

    The solution is lacking in the mobile application area that could be improved. Additionally, the configuration of the UI path could be made easier whether it is on mobile or web and their chatbot needs some improvement.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using the solution for approximately three years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I have found the solution to be stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Most of our clients are enterprise size businesses.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical support is very responsive.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is easy.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The price could be a little lower for the solution. Many of my customers have issues with the licensing process, they have to make it easier and straightforward.

    What other advice do I have?

    I would advise others this solution is a great platform that can meet their enterprise code requirements but it is best to do a cost-benefit analysis before switching platforms.

    I rate ServiceNow a nine out of ten.

    Good support, powerful ITOM features, and easy to set up

    What is our primary use case?

    We are a system implementor and ServiceNow is one of the products that we provide to our clients.

    I have customers in the banking and retail industries that I manage using ServiceNow. I primarily use the ITOM module and don't use the ITSM features.

    What needs improvement?

    The technical support SLA can be improved because sometimes they take a long time to answer our queries.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been working with ServiceNow for five years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable platform.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    ServiceNow is scalable.

    How are customer service and support?

    I have been in contact with technical support and I would rate them an eight out of ten. The support is good but the response time can be improved.

    How was the initial setup?

    ServiceNow is very easy to set up.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The CapEx version is great.

    What other advice do I have?

    This is a product that I recommend.

    I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

    Lacks support for contract line items but offers control over asset management
    Pros and Cons
    • "Will give us better control over asset management and technical debt once we can centralize all contract information."
    • "The contract module is quite rudimentary and doesn't support contract line items."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use ServiceNow for asset management. I manage the IT contracts that are in ServiceNow with the metadata that we have. I'm the associate director for IT contract assets.

    What is most valuable?

    When we can centralize all the contract information, ServiceNow will give us better control over asset management and technical debt.

    What needs improvement?

    ServiceNow is not meeting our expectations. The contract module is quite rudimentary. It doesn't support contract line items, which are subdivisions of contracts in VA. The result is that we're not able to track those sorts of assets down to the product level. I'd like to see support for contract line items included in the next release.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been using this solution for two years. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    My understanding is that the stability is excellent. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is complex because it's not meeting our needs. We're having to build a scoped app to address the inability to save contract line items and data.

    What other advice do I have?

    For now, I rate this solution five out of 10.

    Good ease-of-use, installation and configuration, but is costly to get the tool up and running

    What needs improvement?

    The solution has the same drawback as that of the DMC remedy. The capital expenditure neeed to get the tool up and running is extensive. 

    We are in the process of moving to a cloud-based solution. This and the issue of the solution's pricing should be addressed. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The stability is good and has been improving over the years. 

    How are customer service and technical support?

    I do not have experience with OME support and, therefore, cannot comment on it. The skill-set exists for supplying local support. Locally, inter-office, we have skills. There are those partners who invested in training people. I feel that the technical support has been improving over the years. 

    How was the initial setup?

    I prefer the installation and configuration of ServiceNow to that of the competition. 

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Getting the solution up and running is expensive.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    I prefer ServiceNow to the competition because of its ease of use, installation and configuration. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I rate ServiceNow as a six out of ten.

    Interface mimics a web-base

    What is our primary use case?

    I am a customer of ServiceNow. We use the solution for operations and ITSM.

    What needs improvement?

    ServiceNow has a user interface that mimics a web-base and is easy on the eyes however, it is too fluid. Currently, we are unable to audit notes. ServiceNow should be more organized and structured so it enables us to classify notes. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using ServiceNow for two years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    The solution has good stability.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    ServiceNow is scalable.

    How was the initial setup?

    Due to some of the complexities within our organization, the initial deployment was complex. The tool itself is straightforward.

    What about the implementation team?

    The deployment of ServiceNow was completed in-house.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We compared ServiceNow with Remedy. 

    What other advice do I have?

    I recommend ServiceNow to commercial or private companies. I would rate this product a 10 out of 10.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?
