ObjectGears – Is it a ServiceNow alternative?

19.06.2019

ServiceNow is for many a synonym of a great software for managing IT processes. Its flexibility is provided above others also by scripting possibilities which can elegantly solve various specific requirements. Scripting brings first wide possibilities of combining required features and behavior (such that cannot be really „clicked“ through some pre-designed user interface) and second ability to manage settings „on the fly“, when the script responses to facts that are occurring but cannot be predicted in advance.

Many companies find the monthly license price (monthly fees) too high and are not willing to pay it anymore. Therefore, they are looking for an alternative that would match ServiceNow in features that it provides. Companies that already use ServiceNow are sometimes struggling with upgrades and operation in cloud.

How is ObjectGears responding to that? ObjectGears price policy is set up in such a way in order it does not present an obstacle and every company solving IT processes could afford it. The customer decides whether they want to operate the software in cloud and pay a monthly fee or they get licenses with a one-time payment and operate the solution on premise or at a third party according to their choice.

In order to keep vendor support ServiceNow has to be kept up to date, max. several versions back and regularly perform upgrades. If you feel pain during upgrades when due to customizations deployment of a new software version becomes a demanding project consuming many resources, ObjectGears will make you happy. ObjectGears upgrade does not influence your applications functionalities. The upgrade only makes accessible new functionalities and the old ones are kept as they are. Hence, you can use new possibilities step by step according to your ability, priorities and plans.
