How to Find a ServiceNow Partner That’s Best for Your Organization
There are so many ServiceNow partners to choose from – so how can you know which is best for your organization? How can you determine which partner will specialize in what your business needs?
There is no trick to finding the right partner for your business, but a few calculated steps can make the process easier on you and your team.
This is important because choosing a partner that doesn’t align with your goals can be a very expensive mistake. You’ll want to define what constitutes a good partner for you and look for those traits during your search. Some things to consider:
1. Consider Your Budget
To make an informed decision, first consider your price range and budget. Everyone wants to get the most bang for their buck, and this is not an area you will want to cut corners on.A partner with the right skills and expertise for your project/organization is an important investment in the future of your business process.

You’ll want to find a partner that goes above and beyond, truly embodying the meaning of “partner,” for a long-term engagement – making the most of your money.
2. Ask for Referrals
Scan your network for referrals. Most likely you’re not the first one with your specific business requirement. Ask for recommendations, data, and stats on potential partners from those who have recently completed this process.
3. Take a Look at Their Track Record
The track record and customer success stories of almost all ServiceNow consulting companies are easily accessible – read up on your new partner before making a decision.
To conduct a successful implementation, the consultant must have knowledge and understanding of the specific domain and requirements of your organization.
Working on a similar project in the past guarantees a level of expertise that will save time and money.
4. Ensure They Have Proper Certification
Look for proper certification. Registered ServiceNow partners must meet a strict set of qualifications that ServiceNow frequently reassesses. ServiceNow verifies which partners have the experience and expertise needed to deliver successful implementations based on criteria including:
- Product implementation expertise (e.g., Performance Analytics, HR Service Delivery, Customer Service Management, ITSM, etc.)
- Number of certified professionals (by product) and authorized trainers;
- Customer satisfaction rating
- Customer success stories
- Country and regional coverage
