IT Executive to Discuss Success of Service Catalog Implementation
Atlanta, Ga. – April 9, 2009 – PMG.net Inc., the technology leader for ITIL compliant service catalogs announced today that AAA of Northern California, Nevada and Utah (AAA-NCNU), the second-largest member club of the national AAA organization, will speak at a Technology Association of Georgia (TAG) event in Atlanta. Evan Maxey of AAA-NCNU will address TAG’s Business Process Management Society on Thursday, April 16, 2009.
The session, entitled “Transforming Service through BPM – the American Automobile Association’s Story,” details how AAA-NCNU used process improvement to automate service delivery while lowering costs and dramatically improving efficiency. AAA-NCNU serves more than 4.5 million members in Northern California, Nevada and Utah. Headquartered in the San Francisco Bay Area, AAA-NCNU has approximately 7,000 employees and over $2.5 billion in annual revenue.
In 2008, AAA-NCNU decided to replace their home grown, web-based IT ticketing request system. A contemporary service catalog, was needed as a foundation for the IT department to become a world class services organization. AAA-NCNU found PMG’s Service Catalog to be the most comprehensive, yet flexible and easy to use offering available.
“PMG’s product flexibility has allowed us to move rapidly,” commented Evan Maxey of AAA-NCNU. “Not only have we improved customer satisfaction, we’ve dramatically advanced our ability to progress down an IT service management roadmap that includes the ability to charge back for services, to provide service-based budgeting information and to help the business make choices about how they spend their IT dollars,” continued Maxey.
