Delivering measurable results for our customers.

Making the cloud work better means delivering business value to our customers, day in and day out. That’s what Cloudaction is all about.

“The great thing about working with Cloudaction and actionHub is that the technical implementation of eBonding is reduced to a graphic user interface where you can easily change rules to align with the business requirements.”

John Massie

Manager, Corporate Systems, Continuant

“By integrating Service Cloud and Remedyforce, we have single authentication and

out-of-the-box integration of accounts, contacts, users, workflow, and security. actionHub was an advantage that Cloudaction provided that sped up the delivery of the project.”

Tony Sorensen

Senior Director of IT, Five9

"Since Cloudaction implemented actionHub in our Remedyforce environment, we have been able to automate new employee onboarding, exiting employee process, as well as granting permissions to resources and activating services – things we used to have to do manually. We are excited and creating a list of more things to automate. Any issues or questions we have are handled quickly. It’s saving us time and money!"

Sheri Hartman

IT, Washington State Dept. of Agriculture

“The addition of eBonding is a valuable addition to Continuant’s managed services portfolio, specifically for our enterprise customers, and actionHub from Cloudaction is the enabler. We’re really excited to have Cloudaction help us bring this capability to our customers because it makes us an extension of their staff and allows us to bring their information seamlessly into our call centers, eliminating the possibility of errors.”

Gasper Gulotta

Chief Operating Officer, Continuant

“The most significant area of work affected by our Remedyforce-SCOM integration is with our service desk team. They don’t have to enter things manually anymore because it is all automatically done through actionHub. Working with Cloudaction, we’ve completely automated our whole system, which has really yielded probably hundreds of man-hours, and eliminated human error.”

Geoff Ball

DBA and SCOM Administrator, Cadillac Fairview

 “Cloudaction helped us integrate our SCOM environment with our Remedyforce environment so that all relevant alerts in SCOM auto-generate IT service tickets within Remedyforce. This has eliminated a lot of manual processes that were previously conducted by my team and allowed our support team to be more proactive rather than reactive."

World-Renowned Clinical Research Center

Solutions: TrueSight Operations Management, BMC Discovery, BMC Client Management, Remedyforce, actionHub

The customer is a private, not-for-profit clinical research center, hospital and graduate medical. It is rated as one of the top cancer hospitals in the world.

Five9

Solutions: Remedyforce, Service Cloud, actionHub

Five9 handles more than three billion customer interactions annually for the 1,000+ clients that use its call center software. When those customers call for support, rapid response is a top priority. Getting the right data through the support chain was a manual effort involving too much duplicate data entry. Five9 engaged BMC premier partner Cloudaction to replace its outdated ticketing system with BMC Remedyforce to provide real-time, cross-team collaboration that would improve the customer experience. BMC Remedyforce captures, tracks, and reports on incidents and makes data available to all support teams, regardless of location, time zone, or language. Cloudaction leveraged its actionHub™ integration accelerator to create an enterprise solution that facilitates real-time collaboration across the enterprise: among agents using Salesforce.com Service Cloud, operations, people using BMC Remedyforce, and developers using Rally Software.

  • Single-click escalation to the next support tier eliminates duplicate effort, saving time, increasing accuracy, and reducing resolution times.
  • Automated data flow and status updates across Service Cloud, Remedyforce, and Rally improved operational level agreements (OLAs) by 70% and saved four full-time equivalents (FTEs).
  • The ability to assess “the temperature of the customer,” visibility into SLAs and OLAs.

BMC Remedyforce handles 26,000 transactions monthly, capturing and tracking all incidents, routing them automatically for faster resolution, providing in-depth reporting, and reducing support costs.
