Ster success story

PA Server Monitor helps us in providing reliable services to our internal and external customers.

Ster is the exclusive sales organization of the Public Broadcasters in Hilversum, Netherlands. Ster sells radio, television and internet ads to several A-brands. It is the Dutch broadcasting company that everyone in Holland knows, and Hilversum is the broadcasting city of the Netherlands. Ster was using a multitude of other tools that were not fitting the bill, with too many individual settings, and used PA Server Monitor to replace them all.

How has PA Server Monitor saved your company time and/or money?

Would you recommend PA Server Monitor to other companies that need monitoring solutions? And why?

Marc: "I would, and I have. I think it's the perfect tool for monitoring simple or complex environments with the possibility to add ad-hoc monitors to processes that need a little closer look during busy times, like migrations for example.

We asked Marc"

Marc: " "if he could send us a video testimonial of his experience with our product. He informed us he couldn"t, only because of company policy. However, Marc loved us so much, he offered to invite potential new Dutch clients to visit Ster and see with their own eyes what PA Server Monitor does for "a broadcasting company that cannot afford downtime or broken processes." He said, "I will give a private tour around Ster, by one of your happy users (that would be me.) That"s what I can do!"
