Smart Agent closes the loop and provides complete solution
Smart Agent gives IT and business managers a reliable way to quickly and easily perform root cause analysis ad distinguish external network errors from internal capacity and infrastructure issues. Together with external scanners and Web tracking features, the agent closes the loop and provides complete solutions for entire IT monitoring from inside and outside. Such comprehensive service delivers the functionality needed for centralized and effective IT infrastructure management. Most organizations can not afford professional IT monitoring tools because of their high cost and complexity. Small companies alternatively use open source products like Nagios but they still require dedicated professional personnel and servers. Paid Monitor has changed the situation by offering a complete, easy-to-use alternative. No need for complicated setups, for dedicated personnel and dedicated servers. No uptime cost.

The same outcome by using our SaaS (software as a service) approach will be provided within minutes .
