Five business problems ServiceNow solves

One constant in business is the idea of continuous improvement and efficiency. The world is constantly moving forward, and navigating new challenges with confidence is essential for success. ServiceNow is a leading cloud computing and digital workflow platform that allows organizations to address several common challenges. Let’s take a look at its benefits – and how Pathways Consulting Group can help with its implementation and configuration. 

  1. Lack of integration across departments

Siloed departments can result in miscommunication and inefficiencies. ServiceNow’s platform integrates multiple functions, creating a unified system for better collaboration and information sharing amongst departments. This integration is especially helpful for large organizations with multiple departments that need to work together but may not be able to easily share information with everyone.

ServiceNow benefits include a centralized dashboard where data from different departments is easily accessible to the people who need access to it. The platform provides a unified experience platform with actionable services and communications, which are personalized to individual employees based on their roles and locations. With Pathways, organizations can develop a seamless integration process configured to the organization’s specific needs, enhancing overall efficiency.

  1. Compliance and risk management

Ensuring compliance and managing risks associated with unauthorized access and data breaches is a major concern for organizations. As technology continues to advance, so too do the techniques and competencies of bad actors. Traditional methods are often time-consuming and slow, falling short of providing up-to-date internal audit trails and proactive risk management. This can lead to extended downtime, which affects both productivity and customer satisfaction. 

ServiceNow’s IRM (Integrated Risk Management) Suite provides additional risk mitigation for threats such as fraud, cyber threats, and data breaches. By maintaining transparent audit trails and providing real-time monitoring, ServiceNow helps organizations stay compliant with regulatory requirements and maintain higher levels of service continuity.

  1. Manual and time-consuming workflows

Manual workflows are not only time-consuming but also prone to errors. ServiceNow automates these processes, reducing the time and effort required to complete tasks. Repetitive tasks such as data entry, approvals, and notifications are the easiest to automate and can free up your team to focus on more strategic activities. Automation with the ServiceNow platform leads to time savings, improved accuracy, and as a result, happier, more engaged employees. 

But what is ServiceNow’s workflow automation? It’s an advanced feature that streamlines operations by automating routine tasks, thereby increasing productivity and reducing manual errors. Reduction in this type of “busy work” allows employees to spend more time doing meaningful work in their position, increasing productivity and employee retention. Pathways Consulting Group specializes in implementing these automated workflows to help businesses operate more efficiently.

  1. Inadequate customer service

Customer service is a critical aspect of any organization. Often, when customer service interactions are inadequate, the issue can stem from a lack of interdepartmental communication and siloed information. ServiceNow provides robust solutions for managing customer information and interactions, allowing for a timely and effective response and creating an exceptional customer journey. ServiceNow allows organizations to track customer issues, automate responses, and provide self-service options all in one place. 

Looking to get the most out of your customer service? ServiceNow benefits include improved response times, increased customer satisfaction, and the ability to handle a higher volume of questions and problems without hiring additional staff or straining current employees. Pathways can help businesses set up these customer service solutions, ensuring they deliver exceptional service consistently.

  1. Poor IT Service Management (ITSM)

ServiceNow provides a comprehensive ITSM solution that covers everything from incident management to asset management. This ensures that the platform’s IT services match the business’s needs and can adapt quickly to any changes that arise.

What is ServiceNow’s ITSM? It’s a solution that improves IT service delivery by providing tools for monitoring, managing, and optimizing IT services. Pathways Consulting Group can implement and customize ServiceNow ITSM solutions to meet specific organizational requirements, ensuring optimal IT performance and alignment with business objectives.
