ACE*Net MANAGED SERVICES:
Purchasing a complex system and maintaining it in-house is not always the best solution for our customers. Outsourcing
provides low-cost, no-capital network-management and information-management solutions for medium and large enterprises.
By selecting the Enterprise Managed Services approach, you focus on your core competencies caring for your
customers and managing your business, while we focus on our core competencies maintaining the software and
processing your data.
We view enterprise telemanagement from the perspective of an Enterprise Operational Support System (EOSS) rather
than as a modular system designed solely to assist in managing the telemanagement processes within the organization.
The EOSS point of view sees the network and network information as a strategic asset, and the EOSS itself as one
of many strategic information systems within the organization. By taking an enterprise-level view of the communications
system, the EOSS approach allows organizations to realize significant value for its stakeholders through improved
service offerings and optimized information flow both internal and external to the organization. EOSS vendors
deliver software that covers a complete set of telephony and communications management functions.
ACE*COMM provides complete access to the NetPlus® Enterprise Telemanagement System through its Enterprise Managed
Services. This delivers all the benefits of a comprehensive telecommunications management system, with minimal up-front
investment. A Web-based interface gives you 24x7 secure access to your data. ACE*COMMs Enterprise Managed Services
deliver high-value services in the following telemanagement areas:
- Fault Management- NetPlus® provides a unified real-time view of all
your telephony switches and network elements. It monitors their status and provides automatic notification of
network faults. Through our Web interface, you can easily monitor and access all data and telephony devices regardless
of geographical location from the convenience of your desktop.
- Configuration Management - Effective and accurate change management is
key to a successful system operation. Use our Web-based tools to help manage inventory, work orders and trouble
tickets. We can even automatically update your PBX or switch through our Automatic Switch Interface (ASI).
Management - We will poll, rate
and bill your network usage records. Users can access their bills with complete
security via the Web. Through access to your data, you will reduce carrier overcharges
through our Carrier Billing Verification tools.
- Performance Management Through comprehensive
network traffic reports accessible via the Web, you will have the ability to balance
loads and optimize trunk group and individual circuit utilization.
- Security Management - Advanced layered
security lets you control access by groups and/or individual, from the application
level right down to the form and field level. The NetPlus® security system ensures
that only approved personnel have access to sensitive data. NetPlus® provides
the security scheme - the system administrator provides the information.
You make the determination on which functions and applications are needed for your environment and we will work with
you to ensure you have complete access to those applications and your data via the Web. With the Managed Services
approach, you will gain all the benefits of our NetPlus(R) EOSS solution while we manage the system administration,
maintenance, and upgrades.
Our NetPlus® EOSS builds on ACE*COMMs extensive experience with large private networks by providing an
enterprise focused, scalable platform on which IT can build its communications network management functions. NetPlus®
enables corporate IT departments to significantly save on the costs associated with providing service to corporate
subscribers, and further provides the ability to convert IT from a cost center to a profit center.
- Faster Implementation Using time-tested implementation procedures and our technical expertise,
your system will be quickly and efficiently installed according to your specifications.
- Lower Start-up Costs When selecting a Managed Services solution, there are no hardware or software
purchases required, thereby significantly reducing your capital expenditures.
- Predictable Monthly Costs Maintaining complex software systems in-house involves significant and
sometimes unexpected costs. By selecting our Managed Services solutions, you trade in the risk of ownership for
a predictable, monthly payment.
- More Effective Utilization of Scarce IT Resources While we manage your hardware, software and data
processing needs, your IT staff can focus on your critical business functions.
- Scalability and Reliability Your business can change and grow quickly. Our Managed Services solutions
are designed to grow with you while minimizing the impact on your business operations.
- Customizable Solutions Our core solution is customizable because we understand that when it comes
to processing and managing your usage data, one size does not fit all.
Training on our Managed Services solutions is made available to all our customers. These classes range from one-day
executive overviews of the hosted applications to multi-day comprehensive application use and administration seminars.
All training classes are customized and can be offered at ACE*COMM facilities, customer locations, or via Webcast.
We understand how important it is to have your solution up and running
when you need it, and to have professional
staff available to quickly and accurately
answer questions and resolve problems
as they arise. Three levels of support
are currently offered, though custom
options are also available. Please contact
