3 powerful ways USU enhances your ServiceNow investment

A common misconception is: “I’ve already invested in ServiceNow. Why do I need USU?” Both solutions are essential to a healthy IT environment as they fill equally important but completely different business needs.

ServiceNow is one of the leaders in IT Service Management tools. The platform manages your company’s incidents, requests and changes, which aggregates data about your ITSM environment. It also collects information about license installations as it scans your system.

ServiceNow can count the software that is installed on your hardware devices – but that’s where it stops.

USU adds full-featured tracking for those software installations

As a leader in Software Asset Management, our solution analyzes whether the installations are used in a compliant way. And that means together, our solutions can help your company to pay for software licenses more efficiently.

Out of box, USU can import ServiceNow data

Including CMDB, software usage, user, cost center and location data. The ServiceNow data is cleaned and normalized, and merged with asset and discovery data from other sources. Then USU calculates the licenses that your company needs, revealing where you’re over-licensed, under-licensed, or incorrectly licensed.
