As anyone involved in technology knows, keeping track of warranties and licenses for all your hardware and software can become a real struggle. You’re tasked with 101 things to do and reviewing end-of-service dates is definitely not one of your priorities. It essentially all gets forgotten about. Preventing this from happening is a new Cisco tool named Smart Collector.
Normally, it’s only when something breaks and you need to utilise a warranty that you realise it’s expired. By this point it’s too late. This critical fix could take days to complete instead of a couple of hours because the warranty needs to be renewed before any action can be taken. As a result, business function is interrupted due to a simple oversight.
Smart Collector is your solution to this problem.
Smart Collector (also known as CSPC) is the part of Cisco Smart Net Total Care that is responsible for modern network asset management and collecting inventory data. Below are four of its features we think you’d like to know.
