During our recent webinar on Microsoft Excel integration with ServiceNow we provided a use case and demo around Asset Management, specifically on outdated Hardware Assets (updating and loading back to ServiceNow). The interest and questions generated around this topic was very popular, so I thought I would cut a clip from the webinar and make a stand-alone video for ServiceNow Asset Management - updating outdated hardware assets.
Here is a use case that a customer came to us with, we altered the numbers for this presentation, but the problem was that they needed a faster and better way to manage/update their assets compared to the manual method they were previously doing.
End Users Updating Outdated Hardware Assets: Our company has 3000 computers that have reached the end of their life span and we need to replace them. I was tasked to depreciate them to zero, then make them inactive and take them out of use. I then need to create 3000 new computers from a list of invoices that came in as part of our hardware assets.
