Basically we used it as Ticket Management System and also we can interact directly to the end users. Tracking of issues. Getting the detailed SLA of the issues. Monitoring the ticket status. The tool has been mainly used to manage the IT infrastructure of the Cleint. We used it as a Ticket Management System.

Cherwell Service Management is the solution if you are looking for a user-friendly ITSM tool. We use it for service requests/incidents, change, and problem management. The GUI is user-friendly and is easy to modify as per the company requirements. Data stored, can be extracted in all forms of reports and dashboards in order to showcase the trends for the last few months.

We use cherwell for change management in our company. It has very useful features for tracking the support tickets and the changes going in deployment. However the workflow of the change process once the change is submitted needs some more user friendly screens. Creating a change ticket is very much user friendly but after change is submitted and navigating the change to different state is bit cumbersome.

We utilize Cherwell as our central IT ticket tracking system across the entire organization. Optional services we employ via Cherwell are Cherwell Service Management(CSM), Cherwell Asset Management, Change Management, Problem Management, Facilities Management, Housing Management, and Safety Management. Cherwell Service Management allows us to work intermittently across all IT Departments. This allows us to keep to ITIL Guidelines and best practices. We use CSM for Front and Back end development, providing services for our customers via Customer Service Catalog, keeping all users informed of any service interruptions, reporting and audit purposes, and ticket management to meet SLA's. As a Technician in our in-house IT Service Management team, I primarily manage Cherwell for Help/Service Desks and implementing mAPP's/developing services for our organization.

We use Cherwell Service Management as an enterprise service management solution - where our IT department is actually NOT the largest consumer of the tool! We have branched out from the typical ITSM processes in Cherwell to use it for managing new store openings, DC safety incidents, and numerous finance-related workflows unique to our organization. We are able to consolidate more and more of our organizational functions within a single pane of glass, which is precisely the reason (and one of the many benefits) of purchasing Cherwell.

We use Cherwell Service Management for our main IT workflows including Incident, Service Request, Customer Self-Service, Change Management, and Asset Management. In addition, IT supports the use of Cherwell for Enterprise Service Management in core functions like HR, Finance, and Student for service desks and customer self-service. Finally, Cherwell is used as a business process engine for a variety of unique workflows that support all the areas already mentioned but also research services, auxiliary services, and healthcare customer service. We use Cherwell in many situations where the business function needs a quick turnaround on digitizing a workflow, setting up a business unit for service ticketing, or the business function is so unique that a custom application is required.

Our organization uses Cherwell as a white-labeled ticketing system for all IT-related needs, facilities needs, and specific things like new hire requests that involve HR, Facilities, and/or IT support. As a user in our in-house Marketing team, I primarily interact with Cherwell for IT tickets (usually issues that demand a quick response).

Cherwell is used extensively throughout the organization so that users can log service requests for Human Resources. For the Information Technology department, it is used for service delivery and asset management.
It is able to direct requests that are made to the correct team and manage massive inventories of stock with most of this being done without the need for any programming skills.

Cherwell [Service Management] is used for IT Service Management, as well as Facilities Management, Pipeline Regulatory Management, and HR Service Management. Cherwell [Service Management] allows the company to work on tasks across departments, and keep end users informed of any service interruptions. Cherwell [Service Management] is heavily used for audit and regulatory purposes, and for recording historical work for any problem remediation.

Cherwell Service Management is used to track all the tickets created for incidents, change requests, and service inquires within the IT and Tech related sectors of our business. Anyone in the company has access to it from a ticket submission standpoint and managers and above have more in-depth access to the software to manage all of those requests in one place, get reporting, and monitor status/progress.

Cherwell - ITSM

The Wisconsin DNR uses Cherwell as an Agency underneath the primary organization - the Wisconsin DOA. It is used throughout enterprise IT, but implemented only in that capacity, and is not used by all technology support groups within the DNR. We are striving to get to full usage of all available implemented features, but are not quite there yet.

We used Cherwell as our central IT ticket tracking system across the entire university. It was also used in a minor setting to track room usage by some departments, but its main function was IT ticket submission. We had several positions (help desk phone calls, lab technicians, etc) that used Cherwell portals we designed to submit issues only, and these issues would escalate where appropriate to other departments like ours.

Cherwell addressed the void we had of not having a central tracking system for IT issues. We used to only use emails for work assignment and tracking for all faculty and student IT problems. This was meant to replace that entirely.

We work closely with Cherwell Service Management, it is used company-wide. Cherwell Service Management is a huge asset to our company, we have used every aspect of CSM. We have customers that use CSM for their companies and I have yet to hear any negative feedback. Cherwell Service Management was acquired by Ivanti and will be an even bigger asset now.

We are using Cherwell SM across the organization to address all the operational tickets that we will be receiving on a daily basis. The support team and all the other high-level engineers using the CSM as a one-stop portal to have a clear outline of the organizational ticketing dashboard and also to access all the knowledge-base articles.

Cherwell Service Management is our ITSM solution for the entire enterprise. We don't use the user-facing portal but we make use of the rest of the product as our primary IT help desk management and service management tool. We needed a help desk product that could be hosted outside, that could create tickets from emails and that could automate work flows for common IT support tasks and routine operations. We had tried using a home-grown solution and trialed a couple other solutions and ended up with Cherwell mostly due to my attraction to its "middleware" architecture and the way that architecture makes it easier for me to manage. When Cherwell applies version updates on their hosted server, things don't break because its only the underlying middleware layer that updates such that all of our customizations are unaffected.
