Services Partner Territory


A Services Partner Territory comprises one or more countries in which the partner may direct its advertising using the
ServiceNow logo and marketing collateral, and where ServiceNow will advertise the partner as a ServiceNow Services Partner
on its website and other promotional materials. Each partner may request a number of countries for its Territory at the time
of application to the Program, which will form the basis of the business review by ServiceNow before the partner is approved
or appointed to the Program. Upon approval, ServiceNow will also approve the countries that form the partners Territory.
The Territory may or may not comprise all the countries requested by the partner, depending on the partners capabilities to
service customers in the countries requested. A partner may apply to update its Territory at any time while the partner is a
participant in the Program, with any updates to the Territory contingent upon ServiceNows approval and written
confirmation.
Any subcontracting work is governed by a signed Work Order and the Services Partner Territory will not apply.

Program Requirements Summary


Each requirement requires annual compliance to maintain Program membership and tier status. The following summary
statements provide clarification and general descriptions for each requirement.

Registered Implementations

Registration of your customer implementation or deployment is a requirement to ensure a consistent and high quality
ServiceNow customer experience. Partners who subcontract with the ServiceNow professional services team (Professional
Services) will also have their registered implementations apply toward Program requirements. Partner resources must
represent at least 5% of the total hours for program credit. Implementation registration is a critical first step to enable
partners to meet other Program requirements such as customer satisfaction and product implementation competencies.
Please note that all customer engagements must be registered with the signature page of a Statement of Work (SOW) and be
managed within the ServiceNow Partner Portal. Registration of other implementation types such as support, training and
remote admin will not apply toward the Programs implementation registration requirement. For questions or to request
more information, contact partnerdeploy@servicenow.com.

Services Partner Program Guide v3 2016

Completed Implementations

Completing your implementations is a requirement that triggers the ServiceNow Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) survey
process. Partners are required to maintain important information about each implementation such as project end dates,
survey contacts, implemented ServiceNow product applications and the consultant responsible. Partners subcontracting with
Professional Services will also have ServiceNow implementations count toward their program requirements. Partner
resources must represent at least 5% of the total project hours for program credit.

Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) Rating

ServiceNow is 100% committed to customer satisfaction and holds our partners to the same high standard. The ServiceNow
customer satisfaction survey consists of ten questions designed to elicit customer feedback on the engagement. Customers
are asked to rank their satisfaction with a score from 0 to 10, with 10 being the highest. Services Partners are required to
maintain an average CSAT score ranging from 8 to 8.4 dependent upon tier. The CSAT score is calculated on a rolling 12
months basis which includes both partner direct and subcontracting implementations with Professional Services.

Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) Survey Responses

Through the implementation registration process, partners specify customer contacts to receive the ServiceNow Customer
Satisfaction Survey. A minimum number of survey responses are required in order to gather an effective sample and analyze
results. Partners are encouraged to inform customers that their feedback is very important and to respond in a timely fashion
to the survey they receive from ServiceNow. Achievement is measured over a rolling 12-month period.

Product Implementation Competency

The Product Implementation Competency is designed to recognize a partners level of experience with certain ServiceNow
products. An updated list of competency products can be found on the ServiceNow Partner Portal. This requirement can be
achieved in two ways. The first is achieved through a combination of accreditations and completed implementations for the
competency product. This includes at least four consultants who must have successfully completed accreditations associated
with a competency product, and at least one completed implementation registered for the competency product with an
average CSAT score of 8.0 or greater over the last 18 months. The second method requires Partners to complete at least five
registered implementations for the competency products with an average CSAT score of 8.0 or greater over the last 18
months.

Certified System Administrators

The Program requirement for a minimum number of Certified System Administrators (CSA) to be employed by Services
partners at the Bronze tier and above ensures that our customers are working with highly competent partner
representatives. ServiceNow System Administrator Certification requires that a candidate demonstrates mastery of
ServiceNow System Administration and has the skills and essential knowledge necessary to manage the configuration,
implementation and maintenance of the ServiceNow system. ServiceNow reserves the right to limit in time the applicability
of a certification to meet Program requirements to specific product or version releases. More information can be found on
the ServiceNow Certified System Administrator web page, or email questions to training@servicenow.com.

Certified Implementation Specialists

The Program requirement for a minimum number of Certified Implementation Specialists (CIS) to be employed by Services
partners at the Bronze tier and above. ServiceNow Implementation Specialist Certification requires that a candidate
demonstrates a mastery of ServiceNow implementation, including configuration, customization and design to take full
advantage of the ServiceNow platform. CIS candidates must first achieve the ServiceNow Certified System Administrator
(CSA) certification and ensure that their certifications are current. ServiceNow reserves the right to limit in time the
applicability of a certification to meet Program requirements to specific product or version releases. More information can be
found on the ServiceNow Certified Implementation Specialist web page.

ServiceNow Certified Instructors

information can be found on the ServiceNow Authorized Training Partner web page, or email questions to
training@servicenow.com.

Certified Technical Architects

At such time that the ServiceNow Certified Technical Architect certification is made available, Services partners at the Gold
tier are required to have a ServiceNow Certified Technical Architect on staff. The Certified Technical Architect is the highest
technical qualification a consultant may attain. Candidates must demonstrate mastery of ServiceNow across the broad

Portal to receive the latest information about ServiceNow services and partner sales strategies, as well as access to the
ServiceNow partner enablement materials to support their marketing and sales efforts.
Partners may garner referral fees by driving sales engagements in the two ways described below, provided that the

helping the customer to define the business case for its purchase, helping the ServiceNow sales team to address
customer requirements, participating in sales activities and technical presentations, and conducting demonstrations
of the ServiceNow services.

Compensation for referrals may be initiated by entering information regarding the transaction in the opportunity registration
tool available on the Partner Portal. The tool is designed to help protect the investment made by a partner that is proactively
engaging with a customer and influencing the sale of ServiceNow solutions. By using the tool, the partner is eligible to receive
limited opportunity protection and/or financial incentives when value-selling and leading with ServiceNow solutions.
Eligibility and benefits for Opportunity Registration may vary by partner type, the involvement of the partner in the sale,
product authorizations/specializations, Program level and partner location. All opportunity registrations and the rights
granted thereby are subject to correct use of the opportunity registration tool and compliance with the Opportunity
Registration Terms and Conditions available in the tool and on the Partner Portal.

Product Authorizations

ServiceNow has identified certain products that require partners to obtain additional expertise to effectively engage

each entity with a partner agreement with ServiceNow, and may include a unique set of benefits and qualifications for each,
as described and tracked by ServiceNow, and listed in Appendix 2 of this Guide.
Product Implementation Competencies are a key component to achieve each Product Authorization. A Partner company who
wishes to obtain a Product Authorization will be required to complete all qualification criteria which will include the product
implementation competency defined for services and that product.
ServiceNow may add or change the products within the Product Authorization listing at its discretion and restrict
participation based on meeting qualification criteria per product or solution. ServiceNow must grant a Product Authorization
by providing a notice to the partner, either by e-mail or by providing a notice within the Partner Portal. Meeting the
qualification criteria, without more, does not bestow the additional rights provided by a granted Product Authorization.
Immediately upon receipt of a Product Authorization, the authorized partner may register opportunities in the Partner Portal
for the additional products permitted. Partners who wish to obtain one or more Product Authorizations should email a
request to partnerprograms@servicenow.com.
Partners that have not received a Product Authorization may not advertise their ability to represent the listed products;
however, upon a partners request ServiceNow may grant the partner the right to resell in response to a particular customer

2 of this Guide. Additional Product Authorizations may become available as the Services Program is expanded.

Partner Code of Conduct


ServiceNow is committed to conducting its business in a manner that exemplifies integrity, ethical conduct, and honesty. This
commitment is an important professional value of our leadership and employees, critical to earn our customers respect. To
ensure that we create business relationships only with partners that share our commitment, we require that Services Partner
Program members read and ensure that they comply with our Partner Code of Conduct, posted on the Partner Portal,
updated in partner communications, and available upon request to the PartnerNow Programs team.

Program Governance
Each partner should use the partner dashboard available on the Partner Portal to track progress against requirements for
their current tier. ServiceNow performs an annual review each January of Services Partners to determine each partners
appropriate tier placement, comparing the partners results to Program requirements for the previous 12 months. In
addition, Services Partners results will be monitored on a regular basis to determine performance that may affect their
Program status and result in possible tier promotions for the following year.
