Once IT services have been properly defined, the IT organization can use these services and the SLAs to identify and explain how IT can lower cost in the business.

The assyst Service Designer offers a powerful and intuitive design tool to quickly and easily model your services and offerings in line with industry best practice and the ITIL® V3 service portfolio guidelines.
This helps with the creation and construction of services by guiding users through the process, using pre-defined standard service catalog templates which can then be modified to suit the organization's own needs and ways of working.
Once created, the components are packaged up into ‘bundled' services which can be easily identified, requested and monitored by end-users through the assystNET self-service portal.
