How to improve onboarding and procurement processes with JSM & Jira Assets
Efficient onboarding, procurement, and service management are critical for businesses to operate smoothly. For setting up these processes in a user-friendly, easy-to-maintain, and standardized manner, many companies rely on Jira Service Management. This solution does, however, come with its own set of challenges despite offering a number of added features tailored for IT and service teams. But, with the right apps and integrations, you won't even notice them.
Addressing common JSM challenges with onboarding and procurement
Onboarding and procurement processes involve several key components, including asset identification, allocation, tracking, and maintenance. When properly executed, these not only ensure smooth and optimized performance and reliability but also decrease operational costs. With the right JSM app, such as Shoppie developed by Caelor and seamlessly integrated with Jira Assets, the following issues become a thing of the past:
Using third-party solutions
One of the primary challenges companies face when using Jira Service Management for onboarding and procurement is the need to resort to third-party solutions. This means that companies, already invested in Atlassian services have additional expenses for separate onboarding and procurement tools. An example of such a service is "ServiceNow," which offers a variety of solutions, including procurement. Shoppie's ultimate goal is to bridge this gap by bringing a comprehensive solution within the Atlassian ecosystem, eliminating the need for costly third-party tools.
Slow and complicated processes
The process of acquiring onboarding equipment and services can often be sluggish and complicated, creating bottlenecks in the workflow. This can include everything from the initial step, where employees need to find what's available, to the actual ordering of items. Shoppie leverages the power of two JSM services - Jira Assets and the JSM portal. By seamlessly integrating these two elements, it provides a streamlined process that offers a clear and efficient path from viewing available items to placing orders.
Lack of spending oversight
Maintaining transparency and control over spending is crucial for any company. With Shoppie, each order and the items ordered are meticulously recorded in the form of Jira issues. This detailed tracking allows agents or procurement managers to gain insights into the items ordered/bought, their details, individual prices, and the total order cost. Shoppie, in this sense, acts as a financial watchdog, enabling companies to have a tighter grip on their assets and expenses.
Efficient onboarding is vital for both the company and new employees. A smooth onboarding experience ensures that newcomers quickly adapt to their roles and responsibilities. Equipping them with the right hardware and software is essential for this purpose. Shoppie simplifies the process by providing new employees with a user-friendly interface that offers a clear view of available items tailored to their needs. This results in an onboarding experience that is both efficient and hassle-free while providing a user-friendly and online shop-like experience.
Inaccurate inventory data
Maintaining an up-to-date inventory of available items is essential to prevent operational hiccups. Jira Assets comes to the rescue here. Administrators can efficiently manage inventory using custom fields and an "in stock" option, streamlining the process of updating inventory information. With Shoppie's integration with Jira Assets, the task of keeping track of what's in stock becomes an effortless task.
