ServiceNow has been a key player in transforming enterprise software for nearly two decades and continues to innovate technology as the world evolves. Supplying one of the fastest-growing marketing of information technology, ServiceNow goes beyond platform and software services with their ticketing tool that can solve many time-consuming tasks within the organization.
The Three Steps of ServiceNow’s Ticketing Tool
Implementing a quality ticketing system can save time, money and effort used in resolving reoccurring IT issues. A powerful IT service management framework based on an ITIL service delivery model is the driver of ServiceNow’s ticketing tool system. This system is broken down into three central steps: reporting an issue, managing the issue and resolving the issue.
Step One: Reporting the Issue
With omnichannel communication models, ServiceNow gives employees and users multiples ways to reports issues for resolutions, including:
- Calling the service desk
- Using the chat feature
- Report issues via email
- Creating an incident via service portal or catalog
Malfunctions can be displayed on any service or device with its own predictive analytics and machine learning techniques.
Step Two: Managing the Issue
Managing each issue consumes three individual parts: assessment, assignment, and investigation. Once an issue is reported, it is categorized by urgency and the potential damage it may cause. After determination, the issue is dispatched to a support employee for resolution. With the power of artificial intelligence, ServiceNow can automatically route issues to the best-suited department. While each incident is under investigation, employees can track the tickets process and check resolution status in real-time.
Step Three: Resolving the Issue
Many Legacy IT management systems don’t implement a closing process and rely on a break-fit model of operation. ServiceNow’s ticketing tool closes each case with detailed notes (the type of fix, time to fix, any follow-up instructions, etc.) If for any reason an issue is left unresolved, an escalation process is put into play. This process includes close monitoring of in-activity, various sets of alerts and reminders if the ticket is nearing a Service Level Agreement breach. ServiceNow’s built-in SLA feature oversees all processes to ensure that support is always on-demand.
Types of Tickets ServiceNow Can Resolve
For any IT best practice, organizing incidents by type is key. ServiceNow goes one step further and categorizes issues by the following:
- Incident management is an unplanned interruption to an IT service or a reduction in the quality of an IT service.
- Problem management focuses on finding the root cause of an issue. This is usually sent to a team for severe malfunctions to resolve with a long-term fix.
- Request management is usually implemented for smaller requests when users/employees need support from IT.
- Change management is categorized for drastic changes made to your IT environment, like integrations or replacing a legacy system.
