OCS had tried and tested most of the other monitoring solutions available. Cost [of competitor products] was ridiculous and the navigation and setup was STEEP in most cases to truly get a good picture of a network. They are now able to automate the monitoring of many things that prior were a headache and time-eater. Server backups, drive free space, event log errors, RAID health....on and on.

On-Site Computer Solutions provides full IT Services and Consulting to their clients throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, supporting clients in dozens of vertical markets needing IT assistance.

OCS needed a way to centrally monitor multiple server issues in a manageable way. "This product does that in spades", says Oly Graham, owner of On-Site Computer Solutions. "Its versatility in the scope of monitoring is extremely broad - and accurate. Our technicians are notified of hardware/ services/software issues usually before the client is even aware.
The iPhone® app has proven invaluable for alerts and quick referencing of issues. We will be implementing this monitoring on every desktop/laptop we manage in the field - and then SNMP devices in more detail.
2013 is going to be a very busy year for us - and this product is a God-send. The learning curve here is NOT steep, the support outstanding - and the potential is ridiculously amazing - especially a redundant monitoring server that is now supported. And it is just beginning - that is what excites me, personally, about this product."
OCS is now providing a much more focused monitoring solution to all of their clients - which reduces technician/administrative involvement, making pin-pointing issues and getting down to resolutions faster and more accurate.
"PA Server Monitor offered a solid solution: a centralized monitoring system where engineers could monitor, manage and edit alerts settings for all servers, without the ridiculous cost (unlike most competitors)."
