Fortune100 Gift Card Company Adds a Service Portal Phase to Customer Service Initiative [Service Portal eBook excerpt]

You have one shot to make a good first impression when unveiling a new Service Portal, so it’s critical to get the design done right on the first try. The user experience of your Service Portal is what brings the tool to life, and if users have trouble learning to use the system or they don’t like its interface, the harsh reality is that they won’t move to adopt the new platform. So how can you avoid spending thousands of dollars of your budget on a project only to have your team complain about the final product? The key is thoughtful design.  

Planning for Success 

Before you can roll out a successful portal, it’s critical that your team considers different options for layout design, to ensure you are creating a portal that will work best for your specific organization.  

Which bring us to today’s blog: an excerpt from our eBook of ServiceNow Service Portals, full of photos and real-world examples of how different organizations are utilizing this ServiceNow tool to better serve their users.   

Last year, we were thrilled to unveil a Service Portal Look Book as a source of inspiration for users, with examples of Service Portals we developed for Acorio customers. Recently, we revamped the book with updated client work so that you can keep up with the latest and greatest portal trends in the ServiceNow community.  

Today’s blog shares one of the customer stories from our latest version of the portal eBook – keep reading to learn about how this Fortune100 company is using their Service Portal to modernize customer service.
