LightsOn for CoLo’s
A complete package of new valued services
As CoLo providers continue to evolve and find new ways of generating income, there is an increasing drive to expand the business model from a value added services perspective. Terms such as “hands on”, “helping hands” and “managed services” have been coined to reflect offers where CoLo’s are looking to provide a richer customer experience by taking on more responsibility for the work previously carried out by their customers. And that’s where Vizualiiz kicks in.
What it is:
Using the power of LightsOn, CoLo’s are now able to drive completely new expansive value added services. CoLo companies now offer their customers a variety of new “Hands On” value added services. These incremental services offer a significant up-sell opportunity for providers. As a result, they are able for example, to:-
- Take full control of asset provisioning and decommissioning
- Provide “value add” maintenance services
- Maintain specific spares to meet SLA requirements
- Show asset dispositions and demonstrate “no co-mingling”
- Provided transparency for audits and regulations compliance
- Reduce customer audit expenditures
A New Partnership:
Working in partnership with Vizualiiz, CoLo’s can now offer LightsOn to their customers, giving them the opportunity to see every aspect of their use and disposition of their assets for themselves.
Improved internal management of CoLo facilities and datacenters: LightsOn provides CoLo’s with a significant opportunity to enhance how their own facilities are managed and maintained. Using LightsOn, are able to better manage their core facilities such as power units and air conditioning. They can optimize cabinet utilization and plan for expansion using powerful reporting and analysis tools together with a complete 3D view and monitoring of the CoLo center. LightsOn Spares lowers operating expenses with an end-to-end unified spares management system for co-location owned IT and infrastructure assets.
Co-location facilities physical security improves as well. Reducing customer audits by itself reduces the level of visitors to the co-location facility. Keeping more people out is one sure way to improve physical security.
CoLo’s can reap the benefits of “hands on” asset management for customers within cabinets and racks, instantly manage and report on them and to visualize asset locations in 3D. Providers reduce both a burden and cost for their customers, a true “win-win”. Using LightsOn, CoLo’s achieve significant productivity gains, while maximizing efficiency, effectivity and increased revenues.
