Because Altair does not handle the area of automated marketing plans adequately, it is not as relevant in the implementation for marketing agencies, but this is easy to solve if you use an external tool to execute mail marketing campaigns, and thus also cover the project advertising, or send informative announcements about the progress of the project.

XiO is definitely well suited for applications like ours where we have a large number of devices to manage. I like being able to see all my devices and locations in one place. It is very helpful to see if any devices are offline each morning and be able to troubleshoot before any customers realize there is a problem

  • I would like the option to choose IP addresses as one of the viewable columns when looking at/sorting through all your available devices.
  • It would be nice to be able to link the IP address listed directly to their devices.
  • Sometime trying to reboot a device in XiO does not work for me and I need to go directly to the device's admin page.
