Cherwell Coming Soon!
After much thought and research IT@Sam has purchased Cherwell, an IT Service Management (ITSM) system. This new product will replace our current Work Order System. We hope to be able to put this system into production by April 2013.
Cherwell will provide a way for us to advertise the services that we provide as a division as well as a way for you to request or report an issue with one of those services. This system also provides ways for us to ensure that we are using best practices in our recording, handling, and communication of incidents to provide the best service .
Keeping watching future IT@Sam Newsletters for more information on this new product and it’s functionality.
