Small-to-medium size businesses (SMB's) have limited IT staff and budgets, yet they still require a monitoring solution for cost-effective equipment diagnosis to maintain a healthy network. Use the following checklist to evaluate software vendors.
What Should you Consider?
� Is it an integrated product or must multiple add-ons be installed?
� Can it be easily configured?
� Does it have all the functionality you require?
� Can alerts reach you in real-time?
� Can one person manage the system?
� Is special hardware required?
� Will the vendor's customer service be there for you?
� Is it affordable?
