A ServiceNow PPM implementation to deliver higher quality services faster
A Fortune 500 engineering firm and global provider of technical, professional, and scientific services wanted to integrate its newly-acquired IT service management (ITSM) platform with the existing ServiceNow instance. The client was also looking to define a process for software asset management and integration between ITSM and endpoint management systems.
The client was facing issues with tracking project approvals, budgets and timelines. There was no centralized data repository to identify resource availability and no time tracking, reporting, or historical data available to check performance. The client was looking to improve the end-user experience and customer satisfaction.
