Slack Integration from ServiceNow Partner Crossfuze Speeds Up Approvals Process for Change Requests by over 90%

Sponsored by Businesswire

a leading ServiceNow Gold Partner that works with organizations to
reimagine enterprise services to achieve digital transformation, has
unveiled a new integration for the Slack collaboration hub that enables
ServiceNow users to dramatically streamline the process by which they
approve change requests and catalog items.

The Slack Approvals Integration for ServiceNow, officially unveiled
today, allows Slack users to approve ServiceNow change requests and
catalog items without ever leaving their Slack instance. During user
testing, Slack users responded to ServiceNow approval requests nearly
92% faster, underscoring the value of this integration solution for any
organization that utilizes ServiceNow and Slack.

“A Slack integration that specifically targets the ServiceNow approvals
process is one of the most useful, requested tools among organizations
utilizing both Slack and ServiceNow,” said Ben Blake, senior technical
consultant for Crossfuze. “Crossfuze is pleased to be able to solve this
long-standing business challenge with an elegant, intuitive integration
solution designed solely with the end user in mind.”

The Slack Approvals Integration is designed to prevent one of the most
critical, time-sensitive responsibilities of ServiceNow approvers from
being overlooked. With traditional approvals workflows, ServiceNow
approvers must either stay logged into their ServiceNow instance all day
or be constantly on the lookout for ServiceNow approvals-related email
notifications in their cluttered email inboxes.

The Slack Approvals Integration for ServiceNow automatically notifies
ServiceNow approvers within their Slack instance that an approval is
needed for a ServiceNow change request or catalog item. Then, without
ever switching over to ServiceNow or even being logged into ServiceNow,
the ServiceNow approver can click “approve” or “reject” within their
Slack instance, as well as submit comments regarding the approval

Under the integration’s default settings, the approval decision and any
associated comments are automatically posted to Slack for other
approvers to see. Meanwhile, the decision and comments automatically
flow into ServiceNow in real time.

Designed to complement ServiceNow’s own Slack integration offerings, the
Slack Approvals Integration for ServiceNow expands Crossfuze’s lineup of
industry-leading integration solutions for the ServiceNow platform.
Crossfuze’s Quickfuze
also includes integrations for Salesforce, JIRA and TFS.

The Slack Approvals Integration focuses on dramatically streamlining
just the ServiceNow approval step within Slack. Slack is used by
two-thirds of Fortune 100 companies and has more than 10 million active
daily users.

“We recognize that an integration does not necessarily need to do all
things for all people,” said John Ryan, Chief Marketing Officer for
Crossfuze. “The Slack Approvals Integration for ServiceNow reflects
Crossfuze’s commitment to delivering very focused, high-value business
solutions that our customers rely on to get work done and rapidly
achieve digital transformation.”
