ServiceNow and Arts ISIT Contact Centre

March 4, 2012

In mid-February 2012 Arts ISIT (Instructional Support and Information Technology) announced the launch of a new streamlined incident management system called ServiceNow. The introduction of this tool aims to enhance support services for faculty and staff in the Faculty of Arts.  ServiceNow is a collaborative tool that facilitates the specialized learning & teaching and technology expertise at ISIT.  ServiceNow is designed to integrate with other UBC technical services to further access plus standardize the level of support offered across the Point Grey campus.  Arts ISIT in collaboration with UBC IT and the support from the Information Technology Service Management (ITSM) partners are piloting the new system.   We invite you to use this service for all your technical support needs.

Some benefits to the ServiceNow system include:

Better response. With a single point of contact for all your technical support needs, your concern will be forwarded to the right specialist in the right unit to ensure we can help you quickly and efficiently.

Better feedback. ServiceNow will automatically notify you via e-mail to let you know what stage your request is at, from Open (we have received your request) to Assigned/Escalated (a specialist has been assigned to your request) to Resolved (we believe your request has been met).

Better control. Your incident file will remain active until you determine there are no unresolved issues. Only then will its status move to Closed. This ensures you are satisfied with the service we have provided and that your concern has been met.

Better tracking. This system will maintain an ongoing log of troubleshooting with your profile, so if you are experiencing a persistent error, we will have more information to help us target the source of the problem.

Need support?   Contact Arts ISIT support by phone or email at: [(604) 827-ARTS] or arts.helpdesk@ubc.ca
