Hornbill Service Manager enables you to capture valuable IT knowledge simply from conversations, ensuring that critical information is retained, shared and augmented over time. Knowledge is captured, refined and ultimately sanctioned through the process of collaboration, with entire teams providing expertise and consensus Capturing 'on-the-job' experience and making it available, gives service delivery teams a trusted, complete, and accurate source of information for rapid decision making. And of course, valuable knowledge isn’t lost when team members leave, as their battle-tested know-how can be passed on to others.

Switching focus from ‘keeping the lights on’ to innovation and proactive service delivery is difficult transition for any IT group to make. IT groups that cling to a traditional operational approach, with metrics centred on management of failures, face stiff competition from a growing number of third party service providers. As businesses demand an ever increasing number of services, faster delivery and tighter cost control, IT groups must look for more innovative ways to eliminate low-value IT interactions and create capacity for initiatives that deliver real business value. With Hornbill Service Manager, IT groups can provide faster resolution, prioritize work that’s most important to the business, and communicate how improvements to IT services relate to delivering better outcomes.
