Lewis Gee, Centrix Software's worldwide sales VP, and Jane Rimmer, marketing VP, spent some time laying out the company's history, what they've learned by serving their customers and how their software, Centrix Workspace, came to be. It was a facinating story. In short. the company started as a consultancy. It's software helped clients understand what their staff, customers and consultants were doing, how and when they were doing it and a great deal about service delivery metrics. The software was considered such a valued asset that Centrix decided that it would be a valuable tool for everyone and so, it became the foundation of the company's suite of software products.
What Centrix has to say about their products

It also provides the delivery platform to make new application and desktop services fit seamlessly into your existing service environment.

Snapshot analysisFrom time to time, I speak with a software company that started life as a consultancy rather than as a software provider. The software these companies offer, has been tried in the real world and offers customers genuine and measurable value. Centrix Software is just such a company.
They view into an organization's IT infrastructure provides obvious and useful data that could help optimize asset use, find and fix performance problems and make life easier for IT administrators.
I'd suggest taking the time to see their demo. I suspect that you'd immediately think of ways their software could be of benefit to your organization.
