ISOdx Remote Monitoring Delivers Powerful Enhanced Functionality for ISV, MSP and OEM Support Organizations

04/12/2013 08:39:56 AM

Latest release includes new Spot Check feature providing on-demand data collection and forensics.

COLUMBUS, OH – April 11, 2013—ISOdx, the leading forensic troubleshooting tool with advanced remote monitoring capabilities, today announces a new set of features delivering enhanced functionality, performance and usability to dramatically decrease mean time to resolution (MTTR) and increase CSAT scores of independent software vendors (ISVs), managed service providers (MSPs), and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). 

With the latest release of ISOdx, the company builds on its core principles of data collection, multi-tenant data storage, and robust data visualization to deliver: 

  • The new Spot Check feature providing customers with the ability to perform specific actions on-demand, for example, dynamically collect support forensics without end-user interaction. Spot Check leverages the same secure, outbound-only communication method that has made ISOdx an advanced remote monitoring leader. 
  • Extensive implementation and reporting enhancements reducing the time and effort required to implement ISOdx in complex customer environments. 
  • Read/Write functionality for the ISOdx API (Beta Release) that empowers customers to create, modify or delete data directly to the ISOdx data warehouse. 
  • Support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 operating systems. 

In addition, customers new to ISOdx will appreciate its core forensic troubleshooting capabilities enabling the rapid identification of root cause in seconds or minutes, not hours or days. Renowned for its unique “snapshot” comparison approach to compare a working state to the current state of any device to isolate “what changed,” ISOdx continues to set the bar for the fastest resolution of technical support issues. 

“The ISOdx v4.4.0 release reflects our understanding of customer needs, said TJ Felice, president of ISOdx Solutions. “Support leaders are becoming increasingly challenged to do more with less, while environments are becoming more complex. ISOdx is responding to their needs with product enhancements that provide support organizations with deep visibility into their customers’ ecosystems along with flexible and robust reporting, proactive alerting, and the automation of any manual support process they are using today.” 

With this new product release, ISOdx also has improved its ability to report across a customer’s enterprise allowing users to gain new insights about their entire customer base. 

“Having the ability to see deep into end-users ecosystems across your customer base provides support leaders with a strategic advantage—they can make better decisions on what to support, what not to support, and more,” Felice states. “Version 4.4.0 offers support leaders the ability to save time, lower costs, improve productivity and improve CSAT scores along with the ability to scale their organizations.”

Security Becomes a Differentiator for ECM VARs

DataBank IMX, a national document solutions provider, says that approach has worked for it well. But DataBank has taken that process a bit further, adding a security certification–SAS 70 Type II–to the mix and creating a differentiator for which many verticals are willing to pay a premium.
