FarrPoint Assure launches with innovative new IT performance monitoring service

Posted: 26th January 2015

Farrpoint LogoA new company that promises to help improve the business performance of organisations through the use of leading-edge technology launches today (20 January).

A sister company to FarrPoint, Scotland’s fastest growing technology consultancy, FarrPoint Assure is a new, independent company that uses innovative technology to monitor and highlight issues across a client’s entire Information Technology estate – such as software and applications, networks and cloud based services – enabling swift resolution of problems.

Leading a tripartite partnership, FarrPoint Assure has developed AssureAPM with US multinational Riverbed, who will provide the technology; and information technology distributor, Arrow ECS, who will manage logistics and delivery from their facilities across the UK.

This leading edge service, which is the only one of its kind in the UK, proactively monitors and evaluates multiple technology areas within an organisation; rapidly and accurately identifies performance issues; and pinpoints which users are affected and why.  This allows the client to identify issues quickly and address the problems. In doing so, AssureAPM improves the performance of the client’s IT environment, maximises the return on investment and increases business productivity.

Farrpoint Assure offers a range of unique and highly specialised services designed to help clients get the best from their IT. Aimed at both the private and public sectors, the services can be adapted to suit an individual customer’s requirements. FarrPoint believe that AssureAPM HEALTH CHECK, a low cost taster for the full service, which provides auditable verification that an IT estate is fit for purpose and operating efficiently, will be a popular choice.  AssureAPM is provided with on-going support by fully certified FarrPoint Assure consultants and analysts who are experts in this field.

Doug More, a senior business executive specialising in SME business growth, has been appointed as Chief Executive of FarrPoint Assure.

Doug said: “We are thrilled to be launching FarrPoint Assure.  Our service, delivered by fully certified consultants, is a unique blend of technology and expertise and demonstrates great innovation.  Using leading edge technology, we can help organisations spot issues with their IT, even before they know they’ve got a problem. This allows them to act promptly, minimising any slow down or disruption to their operations.

“The technology is highly effective and simplifies trouble-shooting enormously, allowing IT staff to be more proactive and forward looking rather than being unnecessarily consumed by problem solving.  AssureAPM is being launched in Scotland, and we believe this will be a springboard for international expansion.”
