GE uses Klir Technologies for "Instant Insight" IT Analytics Managed Service Access Distribution, a General Electric company and a leading value-added distributor of complex computing solutions, today announced it is helping its reseller partners enter the growing managed services market by expanding its OneTech services program to include the IT Analytics platform from Klir Technologies.

Through a marketing relationship with Access Distribution, Klir Technologies will provide IT Analytics services to Access Distribution reseller partners and their end user customers. The platform allows real-time visibility into the performance and utilization of applications, bandwidth, networks and servers. With this new offering, resellers can offer their customers both initial IT audits as well as regularly scheduled IT health checks aimed at right-sizing infrastructure and applications.

"Managed services is a growing opportunity for resellers both to build recurring revenue streams and identify new product and solutions sales," Chuck Scalia, Director of IT Service Solutions, Access Distribution. "By offering the IT Analytics platform, we are helping resellers break into the managed services market by providing them with the technology infrastructure and the building blocks to deliver better support and performance to their customers."

With the addition of Klir's IT Analytics platform to the OneTech service offering, Access Distribution is furthering its mission to help resellers mitigate costs while providing a best-in-class end user experience. Access Distribution is offering the IT Analytics platform as a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model to allow resellers to receive immediate value and eliminate a significant up-front capital investment.

"The SaaS delivery model enables resellers to lower their risk while offering rapidly deployable, enterprise-class solutions through a subscription-based service offering," said James Maiocco, CEO of Klir Technologies. "Klir's flexible architecture empowers resellers to deliver new services to clientele in any industry or location, while providing each client with a solution tailored to their specific needs."
