Crestron Fusion

If you are using a lot of Crestron equipment in your environment you really do need to deploy this management software

It probably works well for multiple campuses because you can configure on a specific location. I have consulted with other users that use it for thousands of users, whereas I use it for a relatively small population of about 600.

Pros

Crestron Fusion

Cons

Crestron Fusion

  • It requires a lot of understanding to set up for metrics. You really have to put what you want to measure into the code of each room so it can report back. It is cumbersome to add in a new metric.
  • It just seems like it can be easier to have the equipment autopopulate and do standard reporting and control without having to build each of it for each piece of equipment.

  • Outlook integration is problematic. This is especially disappointing because there was a feature that drove our decision.
  • Some configuration changes must be made globally and you may desire to make at the room level.
  • The fact that there are 2 different versions is a bit confusing because you have 2 populations with different issues doing the same thing. The Desktop version is also quite costly.

Alternatives Considered

Crestron Fusion

We had several competitors to Crestron and in part because of Fusion and because of their DMPS line we have standardized on their products. Having this level of standardization really helped us have a much more solid solution. We have brought down our incidents from 90 per month to under ten.

The price was the driver in comparing with Condeco.

Return on Investment

Crestron Fusion

  • Fusion has helped us make decisions on what types of equipment is being used in each room. It helped us eliminate parts not being used and saving us money in design and supportability.
  • It has also helped us in that each morning we scan for what systems need attention. This has helped us create a much higher uptime.

  • It saves time and allows service areas to get to the heart of their requirements.
  • Is a good repository for all information.
  • The ability to integrate room panels and kiosks is a plus.
