Using Remedyforce Self Service 3.0 - More Powerful and Intuitive Than Ever

Aaron Sebastian
BMC Software

Remedyforce Self Service 3.0 is a modern, fast, intuitive self-service portal that enables your end-users to find solutions to their issues and seek fulfillment of routine service requests. This session will help participants understand how Remedyforce Self Service 3.0 can enable them to increase self-service usage and drive customer satisfaction. The first part of the session will cover administration to enable service desk managers/analysts to configure the self-service portal for meeting their specific needs. This includes setting up branding, service catalog, ticket templates, knowledge articles, service health, and customizing the home page display. Branding allows admins to apply logos and color schemes appropriate to their company. Common service requests and ticket templates allow admins to prominently display the most commonly used templates on the home page. Knowledge articles allow end-users to resolve their issues by themselves. Service health is a dashboard that allows end-users to view current and upcoming outages. The second part of the session will cover how end-users can leverage the power of Remedyforce to fulfill their service needs. Tips and tricks for leveraging features of Remedyforce also will be covered, to enable service desks to close requests to the complete satisfaction of end-users and meet SLAs. Best practices of leveraging Remedyforce self-service will be shared.

Enabling a digital workforce with Remedyforce and Salesforce

Lisa Kraas
BMC Software

What connects the numbers 64 and 62? 64% of Remedyforce C-Levels in a January Tech Validate survey reported that the #1 problem they were trying to solve using Remedyforce was a lack of Self Service, Mobility and Collaborative capabilities.
Is this only in relation to IT Service Management? The clear answer was no. That same survey informed us that; 62% of Remedyforce Customers have extended their use of the solution beyond IT into other Service Management functions, most notably into HR, Facilities, Procurement and Travel.
The Digital Workplace is an essential piece of the Digital Transformation roadmap as organizations look to enable new, more effective ways of working while raising Employee Engagement and bringing consumer like experiences to their workforce.
In this session, we’ll explore the ways Remedyforce can support these Digital Workplace initiatives with real world examples to inspire Customers to action.

As business processes become complex, cross-team dependencies increase for seeking and fulfilling services. Most service organizations in a business, such as IT, HR, Facilities, Finance, etc. are internally facing. They have goals to deliver services to their customers within the agreed-upon SLAs, to the satisfaction of customers. Most service requests are routine in nature, allowing service organizations to standardize how they are requested, approved, and fulfilled. It is no rocket science that standardization helps improve quality of any service. Remedyforce is an ITSM solution built and delivered on the platform that combines best-practice aligned process automation with a simple, easy-to-use experience for maximum IT productivity and innovation. Service request management in Remedyforce is designed to empower service desk managers/analysts with tools to design a standardized, repeatable process for requesting, approving, and fulfilling service requests. Service requests so deployed can be accessed from Remedyforce Self Service 3.0, the Salesforce1 mobile app, and the Remedyforce Console for service desk agents. Attend this session to understand how to design service request definitions to capture service requirements, have them approved, route them to appropriate teams across your service organization for fulfillment, set up SLAs, and measure service desk effectiveness.
