The Truth About ServiceNow Pricing

How much does ServiceNow cost? ServiceNow uses value-based pricing, meaning price is set based on how much value they believe you, the customer, places on the solution (how badly you need/want it). This causes a market dynamic where the price of ServiceNow products vary significantly from customer to customer. The greater your need, and the less time you have to shop around, the more ServiceNow can charge.

The good news: ServiceNow quotes are not set in stone. You can negotiate ServiceNow pricing and contract terms to make them lean in your favor. There are nine key elements deal leaders need to gain proficiency in to drive deal success. These nine areas are emphasized in ClearEdge's negotiation framework, the Leverage Management Maturity Model (LM3):
