Additional Features

ITIL Event Management

Cherwell Service Management easily integrates with various network monitoring tools, alerting the service desk of issues—or potentially fixing them before your end users and customers even know anything is wrong. Create rules so that when an event happens, such as a failed server notification, an incident is created and subsequent notifications are tied to it.

ITIL Knowledge Management

Reduce service requests by providing "Google®-like" one-click access to federated knowledge searches of existing modules, PDFs, Microsoft® Office, and URLs. Powerful Knowledge Management features empower both service desk staff and end users to improve resolution times by providing a repository to successfully capture, structure, and reuse service.

ITIL Request Fulfillment

Streamline and automate common service requests such as new employee set-up and requests for equipment. End users can easily select services from your service catalog and track progress of their requests via the self-service portal. Technicians can quickly review, approve, and communicate the status of requests to end users with simple One-Step actions.

ITIL Service Asset & Configuration Management

Improve incident and request resolution times by providing up-to-date asset information to support staff. Cherwell Service Management provides a visual, graphical representation of not only all upstream and downstream configuration items (CI), but also services, changes, contracts, releases, and end users associated with the CI.

ITIL Service Catalog

Provide an actionable, easy-to-use service catalog that presents end users with only those specific services to which they are entitled. You can even provide associated costs, estimate delivery times, and use the Cherwell Service Management Product Catalog or a third-party catalog to enable charge-backs.

ITIL Release Management

Ensure that changes are released into the production environment without service disruptions that cause unplanned downtime, lost revenue, and disgruntled customers by utilizing out-of-the-box, fully integrated ITIL-based processes. Bundle changes into a single release, and automatically update all configuration items in the configuration management database (CMDB).

ITIL Service Level Management

Monitoring capabilities in Cherwell Service Management proactively warn you of pending service-level agreement (SLA) breaches and provide critical performance metrics. Easily track SLAs based on services, CIs, customer levels, or any combination you choose.

ITIL Service Portfolio Management

Promote transparency and demonstrate value by presenting a business-oriented view of available services, related costs, and quality metrics. Cherwell Service Management links all internal relationships and provides a graphical representation of configuration items, SLAs, and OLAs required for each service—revealing the overall impact of Incident, Problem, and Change requests on service availability.
