The proper integration of your Remote Monitoring & Management (RMM) solution with your Professional Services Automation (PSA) tool yields service delivery efficiencies greater than the sum of their parts. But no vendor offers a true, tight integration of both technologies, so how do you accomplish this?
The productivity improvements realized from adding a remote monitoring and management (RMM) platform to a managed service provider’s (MSP’s) business is well known. A single technician providing manual support without an RMM tool, and no automation or remote access, can manage about 125 end user devices at most.

The advent of cloud computing and software-defined data center architectures for modern application delivery has made networking more sensitive than ever before. Applications in the digital age require networks that can expand and contract dynamically based on consumer demand. Enterprises are implementing software-defined networking (SDN) to deliver the automation required by these new environments, but the dynamic nature of SDN makes network management and monitoring fundamentally more challenging.
Network infrastructure teams need monitoring tools that can provide visibility into these new and constantly changing networks. This white paper explores the importance of SDN monitoring and examines a leading example of a solution, CA Performance Management with CA Virtual Network Assurance integration.
Expanding analytic capabilities are critical to digitizing the business, optimizing costs, accelerating innovation, and surviving digital disruption
Historically, manufacturers were almost solely focused on reducing costs by applying automation and analytics to engineering, R&D, manufacturing operations, and quality organizations. Even though the strategies used within these areas are still needed, they are not sufficient to ensure business survival and continuity in the age of Industry 4.0 and the IoT.
Today, it is paramount that smart manufacturers broaden their scope because disruptive innovations in data acquisition, storage, and analytics technology have enabled an entirely new degree of automation and virtualization, promising a complete 360-degree high-fidelity virtual data-driven integrated views of all operations—from suppliers and supply chains, through equipment, processes, and manufacturing practices, to final product testing and customer satisfaction.

Cash may be popular with consumers, but it often presents challenges and extra costs for retailers. Manually handling, counting, reconciling and depositing cash every day, or multiple times a day, can be expensive. Smart safe technology and automated cash handling can help and benefit all areas of your business – from Finance to Operations to Loss Prevention – but, more importantly, your customers.
Read this eBook to learn the four key benefits of automated cash handling:
• Maximize your cash flow
• Gain more flexibility with open systems
• Reduce shrinkage and reconciliation
• Care for customers instead of counting cash
Even with the rise of digital payments, cash is still a popular form of payment. According to the Federal Reserve, consumers use cash to pay for nearly one-third of all retail transactions.
For many retailers, a completely "cashless society" is nowhere in sight. Cash management remains one of the most important aspects of managing a retail operation, particularly at quick service restaurants (QSRs) and convenience stores, where transactions are smaller and cash is a preferred method of payment. This white paper, Boost Profitability by Automating Cash, sponsored by Fiserv and Fast Casual, details the steps to manage cash properly and boost profit for your business.
Uncover the top reasons and flexible options to automate your cash management.
• Time savings
• Theft deterrence
• Higher accuracy
• Better customer service
• Real-time data
