Overall Satisfaction with ServiceNow IT Service Management

It's being used across the whole organization. Our entire company sends and finishes tickets using the portal. We use each queue for IT, facilities, and others. Our business needs quick responses, as we work at a media company. We handle [everything] from small issues to big issues on servers and it is of vital importance that the [ticketing] software [vendor] respect our time frames and needs.
  • Maybe some of the customization features.
  • Cloud-based.
  • Can add attachments [to tickets].

Our Company uses Service now for a long time. I have seen the evolution and honestly the product has recently surprised me. The improvements have been incredible in terms of speed and ease of use. My team is very happy with the product. The interaction has improved remarkably between our work groups thanks to Service Now, the current product stands out from all the other products present in the market.

Would you buy ServiceNow IT Service Management again?

The latest versions greatly improved my previous experience. I had the opportunity to learn management modules and we need to improve and reduce the size of our database to improve performance. But it is excellent what they have achieved in these times. With my experience from many years in different countries I have to admit that the Catalog builder tool saves a lot of time. It's excellent.

Using ServiceNow IT Service Management

1000 - [They use ServiceNow for the] Ticketing system, [to] open incidents, [and to] see ticket status, request assistance, request for facilities, send questions, request access, etc.
Not sure, I know there are 1 or 2 persons involved internally [but they] never assist me properly.
  • Incident Request
  • Access Request
  • Facilities
If was my choice [a long] time ago this software would be gone for good.

Evaluating ServiceNow IT Service Management and Competitors

Yes - I think [it] was Remedy, sadly replaced.
  • Price
[Aside from that] No idea. Was there when I got into [the organization].
My feedback for my manager is honest and everybody [is as] concerned about it as me. [We are] Not happy.

Using ServiceNow IT Service Management

The dashboard is so confusing, [there are] many clicks to open a task and search by a ticket. The Enterprise customisation [we did] has finished to kill the software and creates a really bad experience on a daily basis. [It is] So slow, and so many clicks to process a ticket. Works only on IE so, that [should] make you realize that [it] is a bad idea.
ProsCons

  • The only thing is some templates - everything else, no.
  • So much text.
  • So many useless options.
  • So many clicks to close a ticket.
