The complexity of IT and the perception of increased risk can be a barrier to adopting new systems and networks for many small and midsized businesses. However, the application of new and improved IT solutions can create real opportunities to increase efficiency and competitive advantage.
To gain the advantages of IT without the risk and complexity, contract managed services from Pathway will help ensure that IT remains an asset to your business and help optimize your returns from your technology investments. For example, the managed services platform we use provides the ability to easily monitor, track and manage the lifecycle of each IT asset from purchase through retirement, making sure you get the most out of vendor warranties, and maximizing its performance and value along the way.
Pathway performs system-wide trend analysis and identify specific ways to optimize configurations, streamline processes and reduce operational risks with your IT. The result is that you get to take advantage of new technical solutions without having to worry about how to manage or maintain it, and you can be confident that the value of your IT investment is being protected.
The Remote Monitoring and Management feature allows Pathway to offer real-time support as well as gives insight as to what is contributing to the issue in the case of a downtime. We can also access and report on your environment to be sure that all issues are stopped before they begin. In the case of hands-on support Pathway can support remote access to the device.
Our remote monitoring and management platform consist of:
A single, lightweight piece of software installed once at each site. Onsite Manager performs secure, comprehensive scans of your environment to gather the up-to-date information that Pathway needs to manage your IT assets with unparalleled efficiency.
With Onsite Manager, we can monitor and manage anything with an IP address, including desktops, laptops, servers, managed switches, routers, firewalls, gateways, VoIP switches, phones, printers, faxes or scanners, off-the-shelf and custom applications, specialized equipment and environmental control devices, internal and external websites, SaaS resources, virtual machines and much more.
Installed on equipment that can’t be directly monitored by the Onsite Manager, such as roaming laptops, remote servers, home offices, or on an onsite Windows PC if you don’t have a server.
