Apps earned notoriety with the maturation of smartphones, and today serve as integral components of the enterprise. From CISO and CEO dashboards to sales and IT, businesses leverage these tools to improve efficiency, productivity and provide the bottom line a boost in the process. Recognizing the need for an enterprise cloud app resource, ServiceNow (News - Alert) opened an App Store of its own last spring, and as momentum builds for the enterprise cloud so too does the library.

Each aspect of a firm requires the ability to keep rhythm; let’s take a look at a couple of the available app offerings helping firms do just that.

Managing time-off requests can prove quite the headache, but in providing a platform to automate notifications, push through requests, calculate available time-off and more, the Time Off Tracker takes the heavy lifting out of the process. Employees can easily submit, edit or cancel a current request with each management level receiving automated notifications. Once a team member’s request is approved by his or her manager, a case is created and the HR department can monitor moving forward.

In order to create a crack squad, a company must first recruit its team, and Recruitment empowers the process by providing an easy to use interface. Once a job is posted, applicants can submit applications and track the submission’s progress via a unique Applicant ID. Integrhythm President and CEO Anu Bulusu told TMC, “Recruitment works alongside ServiceNow’s current HR offerings, empowering HR teams to employ ServiceNow for their end to end solution - starting with requesting a new job, all the way to employee off-boarding and most everything in between.”

The enterprise cloud is transforming processes from time consuming, inefficient and overwhelming to streamlined and automated, optimized experiences. The ServiceNow App Store is aiding in ushering in a new age of operations.

What enterprise apps do you use? Are they keeping you in rhythm?
