Fluensee and BMC Software Announce MarketZone Partnership
Fluensee AssetTrack™ Enhances BMC Remedy Asset Management Application by Adding an Automated Way to Discover, Track and Control Corporate IT Assets in Real-Time
DENVER — June 23, 2009— Fluensee, a leading provider of RFID-enabled asset tracking and management solutions today announced an expansion of its partnership with BMC Software. Fluensee AssetTrack™, with its certified integration to BMC Remedy Asset Management Application, will be sold through BMC's MarketZone program, which facilitates the development, marketing and distribution of third-party products that complement BMC solutions.
The Fluensee AssetTrack for BMC Remedy Asset Management Application solution provides real-time visibility, security and control of an organization's IT assets, driving operating efficiencies and business value across the entire enterprise. AssetTrack leverages the capabilities of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology to automate the locating, monitoring and tracking of IT assets, whether those assets are on or off the network.
"Fluensee and RFID asset tracking help automate the entire IT asset management process, allowing our customers to manage the physical location of assets, have real-time auditing capabilities, and enhance change management and security controls," said Krishna Prasad, general manager for Service Support at BMC. "This saves our customers significant time when performing physical inventories."
The patented Fluensee AssetTrack solution complements BMC Remedy Asset Management Application's capabilities by using RFID to give customers a real-time picture of an IT asset's location and status. The combined offering provides the following benefits:
- Notification when an IT asset's actual location differs from its expected location
- True end-to-end lifecycle management of IT assets - planning, tracking and monitoring of equipment provisioning and moves
- Reduced or eliminated labor needed to locate lost, stolen or missing assets
- Automated, accurate reporting of assets for auditing, billing and compliance requirements
- Improved equipment utilization that helps companies avoid additional IT asset purchases
- Increased security of IT assets and data
- Real-time monitoring and sensing of environmental status such as temperature and humidity within the data center
One of Fluensee's largest implementations of automated IT asset tracking is at a large U.S. government agency that is using RFID to track approximately 9,000 IT assets in the Washington DC area and another 10,000 assets in regional and field offices around the country. The government agency uses the combination of Fluensee AssetTrack and BMC Remedy Asset Management Application to streamline the management of its IT assets. With RFID providing real-time visibility through AssetTrack, the agency has significantly reduced the amount of time it takes to perform a total asset inventory.
"Independent research recently highlighted BMC's leadership in IT asset lifecycle management, and how BMC Software helps its customers achieve efficiencies that will help improve customer service and gain a competitive edge," said Tim Harvie, president and chief executive officer of Fluensee. "Fluensee's leadership in RFID-enabled IT asset management provides BMC Remedy customers with a joint solution that gives organizations additional efficiencies through real-time monitoring of IT and data center assets."
