Key Challenges

Preventive Measures for a Small IT Team

At Nippon Paint, it is important for their IT team to maintain the live status of their server efficiency levels to prevent issues. With limited IT resources to manage both their IT hardware and software, it is exceptionally important to have a network monitoring software so that they can deploy their IT personnel effectively.
Previously, IT issues became apparent only after they occurred. Often, issues could be resolved by rebooting the servers only after they had occurred –  a clear indication of serious lapses in IT management.

“NetGain’s solution has provided us with timely live notifications. Now, our IT team can constantly receive live information about our IT infrastructure without actively monitoring and checking the status of our IT infrastructure.”

NetGain’s Solution Provided

Live Notification Alerts

NetGain Monitoring Solution provides Nippon Paint IT team with timely live notifications. This enables their IT team to constantly receive live information about their IT infrastructure, sparing them the chore of actively monitoring and checking the status of their servers and IT infrastructure.

NetGain has customized the notifications to inform by SMS and email before servers reach pre-set critical levels. Nippon paint’s IT team can then perform a server reboot to bring the levels back to normal. This has raised the IT team’s productivity as they are now able to dedicate their time and resources to other strategic IT activities.

Industry Standard Reports

One feature  of particular interest to Nippon Paint IT team is NetGain’s industry standards reports, a distinctive feature of NetGain Enterprise Manager.

The reports show the health status of the entire IT infrastructure in one single view, which facilitates data presentation by Nippon Paint IT team.

Future Developments

NetGain has been in discussion with Nippon Paint IT team for future customization of monitoring needs. One of the features which they have expressed interest in is the automatic rebooting of a server when it hits critical loads.

Nippon Paint IT team are also currently looking at NetGain Cloud Vista solution to monitor their overseas branches and offices.
