Case and Knowledge Management
The Case and Knowledge Management ServiceNow application allows you to standardize the documentation, interaction, and fulfillment of employee requests. This is aimed to improve the overall HR efficiency and makes it easier for employees to get the services with ease.
HR Case Management: Auto-Case Management
HR case management is offered through auto-case management in ServiceNow London. This comes with strong support of machine learning framework – agent intelligence- to improve the HR issue handling capabilities. The agent intelligence makes use of predictive intelligence models to aid the virtual-HR to automatically generate solutions by itself. The virtual-HR is provided with a database of repetitive issues and respective solutions, to aid faster resolution. To understand better the issue of the user, the virtual-HR analyzes parameters, like, keywords in the subject line or body of the email. Based on this, the issues are routed accordingly or suggested with a knowledge base article.
The auto-case classification of HR Case management is active by default if the agent intelligence and the HR-service delivery services are active. To avoid this automatic categorization, go to HR administration window in the properties and unselect the Enable HR Case auto-categorization dialogue box.

Better Knowledge Management Through Knowledge Blocks
To aid better knowledge management, ServiceNow London release comes with the knowledge blocks concept. ServiceNow defines Knowledge blocks as, “reusable pieces of content secured by user criteria that you can add to knowledge articles in a knowledge base. The user criteria controls which users can read or not read the block content in an article or a search.”
These knowledge blocks come very handy for the HR department in faster resolution of the employee requests, without having employees to reach out to the HR. Using knowledge blocks with the HR Service Delivery, the job of writers is made simpler in submission of knowledge base articles. The knowledge blocks encourage the users with right knowledge article to solve issues by self. In the case of virtual assistants- like chatbot- these can further assist the virtual assistant to understand better the issue of the user and suggest the right solution.
In case of offices located in different demographics one global HR policy for all doesn’t suit, as the policies change with respective country rules. For example, tax policies, holiday calendar and so on. In such a case, knowledge blocks enable the HR to cater knowledge articles or content to the user based on their demography.
