Business Requirements and Challenges

Satellite Healthcare implemented an IT ticketing system express version. This involved the following:

  • Incident Management
  • Service Catalog
  • Request Management
  • Change Management

However, they were facing multiple challenges using the current system. In addition, apart from IT, they were looking to expand ServiceNow at the enterprise level. Forex Human Resources, Compliance, and Legal, etc. were their ServiceNow for Healthcare implementation partner, the IT CIO asked Jade Global to re-evaluate and re-assess their implementation and provide them with a roadmap.

Some of the critical business requirements and challenges are outlined below:

  • Unable to use product enterprise features because current implementation was on express version.
  • Unable to achieve out-of-the-box functionality because of customizations.
  • No easy way for users to report an issue or request a service. The self-service portal and mobile were not configured.
  • Users were unable to easily find a service in the catalog because it was not intuitive.
  • A very cumbersome and long process for managers and IT to onboard or offboard a user.
  • Tickets were not getting auto routed to the appropriate teams, which caused long processing times to fulfill a request.
  • No proper categorization of Incidents and Requests for reporting.

The Benefits

  • Optimized processes according to best practices.
  • Implementation is now closer to out-of-the-box features.
  • Improved user experience and satisfaction.
  • Processing time for the IT team to fulfill any request has increased by 25%.
  • Less manual work for agents and more automation within the system.

The Solution

  • Auto-routed tickets to appropriate teams by identifying and creating specific rules.
  • Implemented self-service enterprise and department portals for users to submit tickets.
  • Captured critical information regarding tickets in emails.
  • Implemented enterprise workflows to record approvals within the application.
  • Developed a dynamic security model to control data access between departments.
  • Re-implemented change management to track critical information.

Just wanted to say that the Functional reviews given in the last two meetings have really highlighted the effort (the) team has put into this over the last few months, so a big thanks for all your work, keep it up, we are getting close to the finish line.
Fantastic effort by the Jade team, thank you.
