Reading UK, 28 November, 2012: CentraStage, the leading IT management software provider, has revolutionised the IT asset management and remote support market by launching CentraStage Freemium, a cloud based service that offers complete control and visibility of an IT estate at no charge.
CentraStage Freemium offers 500 free ‘agents’ which when added to a device, perform a full IT audit every seven days, allowing IT support staff total visibility of their IT estate and the power to help locate, connect and optimise technology. The new service also offers ten hours of remote takeover for up to five managed devices, allowing IT staff to support and update devices should problems arise.
The innovative new service model is designed to allow MSP’s to enter new markets and launch new service models without risk. There are no set-up fees and there is no pre-defined limit to the length of time MSP’s can support their customers through CentraStage Freemium.
Christian Nagele, CEO of CentraStage commented, ‘MSP’s and IT Support Providers need to continue to expand and grow their services but often lack the resources to invest in new technologies. CentraStage Freemium offers a no risk approach that allows MSP’s to offer new service models to their customer base, helping them to grow their business and offer new services.’
Nagele continues, ‘Today’s IT Manager is faced with a range of challenges such as auditing and compliance, mobile device management and the growing trend of BYOD. CentraStage solve each issue with a manageable, safe and secure application, designed to expand or contract in-line with any organisation and provide visibility, information and support to and IT infrastructure.’
Beyond the freemium model, CentraStage offer an upgraded service that includes automated software rollouts, pro-active monitoring and pre-packaged scripts through ComStore, CentraStage’s enterprise application store. The expanded range of services and functionality cover a range of deployment, installation, reporting and policy issues that help organisations understand the status and performance of their IT estate.
