Overall Satisfaction with ServiceNow IT Service Management

ServiceNow is being used across the whole IT division of the organization. Outside of the IT department, outside staff doesn't have a way to submit a ticket. The process of submitting new tickets is by calling the IT department, making the program itself only used internally, and only by a certain department.
  • Categorizing: Very easy to categorize tickets.
  • Knowledge Base: The KB system is very good at creating useable, searchable articles.
  • Searchable: Easy to search either KB articles or tickets.
  • Slower loading times: Because the system is so large, it is very slow at times.
  • Complicated search: The ticket search system is not very intuitive.
  • Down time: Have had issues in the past where the system would go down.
  • Categorizing capabilities.
  • Searchable internal knowledge base.
  • Streamlined ticketing system.
  • New employees easier to train because of streamlined system.
  • Old tickets easy to pull up and thus able to resolve issues quicker.
  • Able to sort tickets by location and other fields in order to find trends.
  • BMC Track-It!
ServiceNow is much better than BMC Track-It! in almost every way. ServiceNow has a much easier-to-edit Knowledge Base system, while BMC's system is about the same as making a post in Notepad. ServiceNow is also much better at sorting fields, as it has attributes that can be assigned to the ticket for tracking and searching, while BMC's attribute fields are mostly only useful for sorting active tickets.

Would you buy ServiceNow IT Service Management again?

Yes

ServiceNow IT Service Management is most applicable for larger companies. It can supply large, easily searchable Knowledge Base articles to train employees, especially Tier 1 tech support. If the company has a large about of Tier 1 tech support staffed, then this is a perfect service. It also includes a lot of ways to categorize and search the categories of the tickets, so that even a large amount of tickets can be filed away properly.
