Increased Operational Reliability and Shorter Downtimes

With CIDEON Managed Services you benefit from increased operational reliability of your software. Downtimes and associated additional costs are reduced to a minimum.

Plannable Costs and Clearly Defined Service Times

With a CIDEON service contract you are spared unpleasant surprises. The costs incurred as well as service and response times are clearly defined and agreed.

Typical Scenarios

Companies choose CIDEON Managed Services for these and many other good reasons.

Lack of Resources in IT

Your IT department does not have enough technical or human resources to ensure continuous monitoring of your software and rapid troubleshooting.

Little Knowledge About Software

Your IT employees have only limited knowledge about the CAD, PDM or PLM software implemented in your company. In the event of malfunctions or specific user questions, they are therefore dependent on external help.

Strong Dependency on Software

Numerous important areas and processes in your company depend on the uninterrupted availability of your software and systems. Prolonged outages would entail high costs and even severe reputational damage.
