Addleshaw Goddard Improves IT Service Efficiency with ServiceNow

SAN DIEGO, Calif. – Oct. 4, 2012 – ServiceNow, Inc. (NYSE: NOW), a leading provider of cloud‑based services to automate enterprise IT operations, today announced Addleshaw Goddard has selected ServiceNow to automate IT service delivery for more than 1,250 staff in the UK and Singapore. The Addleshaw Goddard IT department is using ServiceNow to improve service efficiency and quality of customer experience whilst achieving significant cost savings.

Addleshaw Goddard is an international law firm and selected ServiceNow after having already made the decision to transform its IT services. The company was experiencing significant change and required an IT platform that could meet the unique needs of the business, rather than the business having to adapt to fit the technology. In addition, its legacy help desk software was limited in scope and costly to maintain and upgrade. After considering several options, ServiceNow cloud services met all of Addleshaw Goddard's requirements.

"ServiceNow is a perfect complement to our IT transformation efforts," said John Whitlow, Addleshaw Goddard Head of IT. "To evolve IT we needed a cohesive platform for efficient process automation and ServiceNow delivered. The implementation exceeded our expectations and user adoption has been straightforward. Staff feedback has been extremely positive."

The transition to ServiceNow was completed in six weeks and included incident and problem management and a configuration management database (CMDB). This was record time for an Addleshaw Goddard implementation. The intuitive ServiceNow user interface required minimal training and resulted in rapid, easy adoption throughout the department.

ServiceNow is now helping Addleshaw Goddard eliminate costs, create efficiency and improve customer service through improved IT resource capacity planning across the business.
