Avnet in IT services partnership with AlarmPoint

28 Mar 2010

Avnet Client Solutions has forged an exclusive partnership deal with AlarmPoint Systems to allow delivery of alert management and mobile service management capabilities into the market here.

Avnet Client Solutions is a well-known specialist in providing IT service management and infrastructures solutions from leading vendors, including BMC Software.

AlarmPoint Systems, a US-based company, automates the process of delivering targeted information to people who can best resolve the issue, eliminating inefficient mass notification as well as manual assignment and escalation processes.

Getting the relevant information to them on time is critical in order to avoid interruption to the business. The partnership will combine the strengths of Avnet and AlarmPoint Systems, helping customers hasten decision making, improve operational effectiveness and increase visibility throughout the enterprise.

John O’Mahoney, BSM account manager, said AlarmPoint Systems brings a critical part of the management solution portfolio to Avnet Client Solutions.

“Adding AlarmPoint’s capabilities to our suite of solutions will provide customers with extended notification capabilities and functionality for its service management initiatives.

“We were always able to track the issues but AlarmPoint’s Alert Management platform goes so much further in that it targets the right people at the right time on the right device and therefore puts an end to inefficient mass notifications.”
