Managing your company’s IT hardware and software assets is a very complex and time consuming process.
For example, your apps must meet the installation - and upgrade - requirements for your specific environment. You have corporate standards for software usage and desktop design, multiple languages, regional issues, and software related support issues. You have hardware everywhere tied to old finance, procurement and inventory processes. There are also many assets spread over different teams, with multiple contractual relationships resulting in inefficiencies & costly errors.
We feel the pain. And more importantly, we can help.
By leveraging ServiceNow for Asset Management, SuMO can help you track the financial, contractual, and inventory details of hardware, software, and virtual infrastructure – as well as non‑IT assets – throughout their lifecycle. Asset requests are handled using workflows to obtain approvals, validate entitlements, issue chargebacks, and provision services. Once an asset is deployed, Asset Management records all maintenance activity and enables IT to perform regular audits, right up until asset retirement.
End-to-end. With transparency and efficiency:
Inaccurate inventory, wasted resources, compliance issues, and service delays are all every day risks for enterprises that have serious consequences if not addressed. To mitigate risk, organizations need to know the assets they have, where they are, usage entitlements, who uses them, how they are used, how they are configured, what they cost, and the value they deliver.
SuMO can help get the ball rolling with solutions for:
- Software Asset Management
- Hardware Asset Management
- Contract Management
- Portfolio Management
- Vendor Performance
Delivering on individual components can deliver significant departmental benefits however once you tie it all together across the enterprise, the ROI increases dramatically.
