Natixis Global Asset Management Smoothly Upgrades to FrontRange’s HEAT Service Management Solution

FrontRange, the Hybrid IT software company, today announced that Natixis Global Asset Management has successfully migrated from FrontRange’s HEAT Help Desk solution, relied upon since 2008, to the HEAT Service Management solution. The migration provides Natixis with a more agile IT infrastructure that adapts rapidly to its global clientele’s changing business needs and a centralized service management platform that supports functional and business workflows for its IT, human resources, and finance departments.

“Thanks to the enhanced workflow automation provided by HEAT Service Management, it’s much easier for our IT department to multitask,” said Marina Shereshevskaya, Manager of IT Governance at Natixis Global Asset Management. “Additionally, HEAT Self Service is now being used for all our employee provisioning needs, including setting up new employees and terminations. Plus, we’re realizing better integration of our human resource system with HEAT Service Management. This allows us to store everything in one database so users don’t have to move from one application to another to get their jobs done.”

To ensure an easy transition to HEAT Service Management, Natixis worked with FrontRange Professional Services on the multi-phased migration. “There were a lot of moving parts,” said Shereshevskaya. “But we had a very successful outcome.”

With the addition of HEAT Self Service, users can now request new services, submit incidents, and review the status of tickets all via a simple self-service portal. Due to the added convenience of this feature, Natixis’ service desk has cut fulfillment requests in half through the self-service portal, and email and phone requests have dropped sharply as well.

As the industry’s only hybrid service management platform that supports cloud, on-premise and/or a combination of the two deployment options with a common framework, FrontRange’s HEAT solution integrates IT best practices with voice and workflow automation. This enables service desks in organizations, like Natixis, to easily request a service or change, plan for appropriate remediation measures and automatically approve and authorize requests.

“Using the HEAT template saves us a lot of time and my involvement in change management is much lower,” said Shereshevskaya. “The templates not only save resources, but also ensure that people follow the same procedure every time.”

“Natixis’ migration to HEAT Service Management represents a significant validation of the benefits of our solution,” said Fred Johannessen, VP of International Sales at FrontRange. “As one of the largest asset management companies in the world, Natixis requires a proven and robust service management solution that can easily and efficiently support a complex IT environment. Their continuing commitment to FrontRange speaks volumes about our ability to fulfill the full spectrum of service management requirements.”
