Starfish Provisioning Solution for ServiceNow

Automate Communication Management Workflows through ServiceNow

Automate communication management workflows (moves, add, changes and deletes) through ServiceNow.

Starfish Provisioning Solution for ServiceNow automatically fulfills service requests, tasks and incidents to execute communication management workflows. The workflows provision and manage communication resources on multi-vendor communication platforms including Avaya, Cisco, Genesys, Microsoft and Verint.

ServiceNow forms can be customized to automate on-boarding and off-boarding provisioning requests.

When service requests for communication resources are submitted, Provisioning Solution automatically provisions or de-provisions resources for users and contact center agents. Depending on the type of user (knowledge worker or a contact center agent), specific communication resources are created or removed.

Sample Workflow

  • When a new user is on-boarded, a service request is submitted to create a phone, voice mailbox and a Webex account for the user. Provisioning Solution automatically executes the request and updates the ticket with the action taken, status and detailed information about the communication resources provisioned for the user.
  • When a user is off-boarded, a service request is submitted to remove the phone, voice mailbox and Webex account for the user. Provisioning Solution automatically executes the request and updates the ticket with the action taken. Communication resources can be de-provisioned immediately or scheduled for a later date.

The results of provisioning transactions are maintained in the ServiceNow Activity log including information about the resources provisioned, phone numbers, agent IDs and more.
