Software saves money and increases productivity for healthcare providers and schools nationwide.
LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND, November 3, 2009 — Kaseya, the leading global provider of automated systems management software for IT service providers and corporate IT departments, today announced its economic stimulus program for IT departments of education and healthcare organizations. Kaseya is now providing its discovery and inventory software for free to qualified K-12 schools, universities, hospitals and other healthcare organizations, allowing them to track up to 1,000 machines at no cost.
Kaseya provides a reliable and robust IT management solution to proactively manage thousands of servers and workstations through one Web-based interface. The discovery and inventory software provides quick access to computer inventory information, scans for all IP-enabled devices and reports the details required to easily manage the network from anywhere.
Kaseya’s discovery and inventory solution provides comprehensive details about an organization’s workstations, laptops and servers, ensuring better utilization of all their assets. The software helps businesses easily find misplaced computers, printers and routers, and gather and analyze software, hardware and operating system data from each asset. Kaseya also tracks all software applications, license keys and duplicate licenses, potentially saving hundreds of dollars in unnecessary purchases. Automated inventory scans help IT administrators understand exactly what is on hand, without having to manually gather the data, freeing up their time to focus on more strategic tasks.
“The Federal Stimulus plan included funds for technology improvements at schools and hospitals, such as new computers and software, which will require dedicated time and resources to manage effectively,” said Jim Alves, executive vice president, strategy and product marketing at Kaseya. “We acknowledge the pain healthcare and education IT staff experience on a daily basis. They are asked for the same level of performance with decreased staff and budget, and increased workload. Our IT stimulus program provides a powerful asset management solution for free, empowering IT personnel to truly do more with less.”
The increased pressure brought on by shrinking budgets affects IT personnel now more than ever, as each machine or IT asset has the potential to cost a company hundreds of thousands of dollars if it’s not managed and maintained properly. Compliance is also a concern, as healthcare and education companies must comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) Privacy Rule and Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). To do so, it is essential to know what software is installed on which machines, and the license availability of business applications and operating systems.
