Vizualiiz Unveils First Fully Integrated Spares Management System For Data Centers
End-to-End Spare Parts Management System Saves Money by Reducing Waste and Overstocking
Woodinville, Washington – October 17, 2012, Vizualiiz, an innovator in technology solutions that make managing data center assets faster, easier and more affordable, today announced the first-ever, fully integrated spares management solution for data centers, offered as part of the expanding LightsOn solution. LightsOn Spares Management offers 3D visibility and complete control and management over the movement and deployment of data center spare parts. The turnkey Spares Management system includes timesaving prebuilt workflows to systematize the receipt of spares into the storeroom along with the collection of critical component details. It also automates the ability to manage spares stored in bins and cages, removing the need for physical inventory counts and audits, and tracks the deployment of spares from storage to their new asset host and location. A large, worldwide entertainment company completed a beta test of LightsOn Spares Management, where it is currently in use.
“Estimates confirm that U.S. industries purchase more than $700 billion per year on parts and supplies to support company operations1.” Bob Cartwright, Vizualiiz President stated. “The financial investment that data centers make in spare parts inventory is astounding and without the ability to easily track how, when and where spares are used, it’s difficult to monitor and justify these investments, let alone efficiently manage the process.”
Launched earlier this year, the LightsOn product suite has continued to expand. Recently Vizualiiz announced LightsOn 2.3D, a second version of the product which includes an updated user interface with 360o visual search and navigation of data center assets, including zoom capabilities to faceplate-level detail. Earlier in the year, Vizualiiz added LightsOn Scout, a completely integrated android-based touch-screen tablet application that reduces the capturing, tagging, transferring and auditing of data center assets from days to minutes.
Founded in 2010, privately held Vizualiiz created the patent-pending LightsOn™ solution to help companies redefine how data center assets are managed by using innovative, 21st century technology to improve efficiency and reduce costs. LightsOn combines advanced 3D visual graphic technology with integrated search capabilities, to provide fast access to asset details and enable informed decision-making. The technology agnostic solution supports new ways of rapidly collecting and inputting asset details into the database, including capturing details from assets tagged with RFID or barcodes using wireless, hand-held tablets, speeding asset audit times from days to minutes and improving accuracy. The turnkey solution includes completely integrated software and is delivered via SaaS or premise-based with hands on support.
