Highlights of Network Management and Tracking Software
  • Clients want the software vendor to be more than a reseller of software and part of the network management team.

  • Clients capabilities and resources vary including the amount of time to invest in daily operations and therefore want options for the vendor to supplement staff in maintaining the software.
    • ✔ The client has options of handling as much or as little of the day-to-day maintenance.
  • Private and public sector clients use different design and drawing software and therefore the software vendor must be able to convert and reformat drawings received.
    • ✔ We work with all types of mapping software (AutoCAD, GIS, CadTel, MapCom, etc.)
