Results After Partnering with Vyopta
SOC opted for Vyopta’s complete vAnalytics suite which includes proactive real time monitoring, custom issue alerts, and historical analytics. In just a few hours, their IT team was monitoring 500+ telemedicine endpoints located in hospitals and clinics across the USA from a single, integrated dashboard. They were able to easily view live, performance metrics and resolve video call quality and network issues before they made an impact.
In days, the SOC IT team was analyzing historical data trends and troubleshooting systemic problems that were dragging down their quality of service. They leveraged their new and improved endpoint utilization insights to save money by redistributing existing video conferencing resources and planning for spikes in demand. The best part was, their support team was able to greatly reduce the time they spent generating performance and compliance reports. Instead, they were able to focus on troubleshooting, improving their network, and sharing meaningful visualizations of their progress with key stakeholders at their company.
