Actionable Roadmap

Armed with insights from the assessment, we crafted a detailed and actionable roadmap for centralized asset management leveraging ServiceNow's robust capabilities. This tailored roadmap provided a clear path towards asset management excellence.

The Result

Efficient asset refresh workflow
Implemented during Phase I of the Landmark: Asset Management roadmap, the near-Zero Touch Refresh workflow enables our client to seamlessly fulfill asset refresh requests from employees. Integrations with CDW and Dell eliminate the need for maintaining a local inventory of new assets. Employees receive timely notifications of their refresh eligibility based on hardware model lifecycles and can effortlessly request a refresh of their hardware assets through near-Zero Touch Refresh requests.

Improved data accuracy and trustworthiness
Through data integration feeds with CDW, Dell, and SCCM, our client has experienced a substantial improvement in the accuracy of end-user workstation asset data. The new automated workflow not only streamlines processes but also instills greater trust in the integrity of their asset data, laying a solid foundation for informed decision-making.
