COMDV Features
Daily Server and Workstation Health Checks
We can spot small issues before they become disasters with a Daily Health Check of your servers. We’ll be able to cut
downtime and resolution effort with checks to ensure the anti-virus pattern is up-to-date, the tape backup is complete,
Exchange Information Store size is within defined limits, disk health and consumption rates are in order, and event logs are
not showing any important critical errors. With Workstation Monitoring we can receive alerts on important issues like AV,
disk space, disk health, Windows services and event logs. We’ll spot trouble coming down the track and can act before
disaster strikes.

24x7 ‘Whole Client’ Monitoring
The COMDV system monitors much more than your servers. With COMDV, you can perform round-the-clock checks on a
wide range of systems that are critical to your operations including PING checks, RAID and SNMP checks, bandwidth and
website monitoring as well as Windows service failures, disk space thresholds, performance loads, and disk health.
ls for IT Support
Remote Support Tools
COMDV can start solving issues on your servers and workstations as soon as they arise without having to visit your
location. We can launch Terminal Services, VNC or NetSupport Manager secure sessions for server administration by
simple click in the DashBoard. And with COMDV’s Remote Support for User Assistance, we’ll be able to take control of the
PC without pre-loading applications or loading ActiveX sessions, so you can get back up and running faster and reduce the
number of onsite visits and save your time and money.

Patch Reporting
With COMDV’s WSUS integration we’ll be alerted to computers requiring updates, updates not applied and more. Through
the COMDV DashBoard, we’ll be alerted when there is any risk. Asset Tracking and Inventory Reporting performs automatic
scans of your network. You’ll be able to view detailed information about your systems on your DashBoard. Cut the time
and hassle spent looking up configuration information, print comprehensive inventory reports and asset change reports, as
well as tracking software license compliance.

Intuitive Online DashBoard
COMDV will provide you with easy, intuitive online DashBoard. You’ll be able to use it without the need for expensive and
time consuming training. And because it’s web-based, you’ll get a real-time view of your computers wherever you are.

Conventional Service Process vs. COMDV Service Model
With conventional processes, the client first suffers downtime before they report the problem. The situation is difficult
because client's IT Support is in reactive mode and probably not sure about the cause of the problem. The situation
requires investigation and the fix takes time.

COMDV changes the whole reactive support concept to proactive, receiving alerts by email or on the DashBoard and
addressing the problems before the client even knows they have an issue. The email and alert inform COMDV of the exact
cause of the problem so we are able to fix it fast – and keep clients’ satisfied. We'll spot small issues and fix them before
they become big problems. We'll save you days of recovery time.

                                    When it comes to IT support, we make it Easy
