“We've sold Pulseway as a service to our customers. Between the two of them we more
than pay off our yearly cost. They are extremely impressed when we know of an issue
before they do."
What led Convergint Technologies to look for a solution like Pulseway?
Mike Mann is the Project Specialist at Convergint Technologies and is in charge
of a large Windows based video recorder, which was giving him continuous issues.
The archive drives needed constant attention because when they would fill up the
system could not delete video fast enough to make room for new archives.
“I was logging in three times a day just to check on the storage. After installing
the Pulseway client as a trial I was able to set a storage threshold and have instant
alerts come to my phone when there were signs of trouble.”

Previously Mike Mann was using Labtech but he wanted something more user friendly

Monitoring customers infrastructure
Convergint Technologies currently has the Pulseway Enterprise client installed on
about 48 machines. Most are customer video servers, but some are their own internal
machines. They monitor CPU and Memory usage, storage usage, Windows services, and
ping activity/loss to IP cameras and some other network devices. “We generally configure
it on new installations to monitor the health during the first few months and then
we offer it as a service to customers for a yearly per system fee.”
Discovering customer issues in real-time
“We know of problems the minute they happen. Customers are impressed when you know
of an issue before they do. We’ve called customers that have had power or Internet
loss, dead cameras or even a Windows service that has stopped and they didn’t even
Working with Pulseway has been an incredibly easy process
“We’ve only had some basic questions for support, but they have always been answered
completely in a timely manner. I would recommend Pulseway on the peace of mind alone.
Being able to quickly check the status of every monitored system from my phone at
any time of the day helps me sleep at night.”
Favourite thing about Pulseway?
“The customized monitoring solutions. Being able to set thresholds on CPU usage
and drive space and if a ping drops for a certain amount of time is key for us because
all of our customers are different.”
