If you use ServiceNow products in your business, you have already had the chance to discover that their many modules can be used to address virtually any kind of business need that you may have. However, you can gain even more benefit from ServiceNow.

This article will introduce you to the ServiceNow Store and explain how it can help you discover the ideal ServiceNow application for enhancing your company’s productivity and providing a better level of service to your customers.

What is the ServiceNow Store?

This is a marketplace where you will be able to find certified apps and integration solutions for business continuity, capacity planning, communication, content planning, disaster recovery, enterprise mobility management, event management, monitoring, orchestration, security, and a wide range of other use cases that are part of the company’s infrastructure.

As part of the Now Platform®, which consists of IT, business units (for example, Human Resources, Customer Service), and shared services that digitize, connect, and automate processes across your enterprise, ServiceNow store apps were developed. These apps are all designed in compliance with the platform’s core technology, and there are both free and paid versions available. It is possible to choose from two types of apps: apps developed by ServiceNow and apps developed by ServiceNow Partners.

By categorizing and filtering apps and integrations by different criteria, you can easily locate the apps and integrations that are suited to your particular needs. Instead of having to browse dozens of pages with products, you will be able to choose the type of tool you need, the price range, release if available, and the purpose of the tool.

All of the ServiceNow apps have been thoroughly tested for compatibility, security, and performance, as well as their respective approvals by experts at ServiceNow. They have undergone thorough tests for compatibility, security, and performance, and have been deemed error-proof by expert ServiceNow teams.

It is imperative that the application code, architecture, installation patterns, and even prior releases are given the utmost attention and are reviewed more rigorously during the certification process to ensure seamless integrations and smooth operation of all the tools involved.
