Unified center for service requests

An interactive, intuitive web portal serves as a one-stop shop for users to browse through available IT services, as well as submit and track requests. Users can quickly see the costs and benefits of a service before requesting access to the service itself, promoting IT as a true business partner.

Enterprise service catalog

Service Request Center features pre-built service requests complete with associated forms and workflows. Choose from various icons or create your own to represent services in the portal.

All your Solutions Business Manager (SBM)-powered applications are showcased as services within the portal and direct your users to a specific web page to request services.

Contextual knowledgebase

Powerful knowledge management capabilities help users resolve their own problems without contacting support teams. Special knowledge alert capabilities automatically present potential solutions based on ticket information. "Announcements" on Service Request Center enable you to highlight ongoing issues, reducing the likelihood of duplicate tickets.

Dashboard for service level management

Keep users aware of the SLAs associated with offered services. SLA measurements can be:

  • based on business calendars,
  • suspended at certain points, or
  • applied to subsets of processes.

Configured reports provide managers with dashboards that showcase a team's past performance against current performance. All information is displayed in real-time.
