  • It monitors what we need at an affordable price.
  • It's hard to put an ROI on a product we use for maintenance but we were able to consolidate another product into this and avoid an additional cost.
  • It does help our network staff streamline their daily processes and tasks but eliminating the need for individual checks.

Return on Investment

  • As I mentioned earlier, the monitoring of the external environment and uptime is a necessity. An hour down is a 1% loss of revenue per day which may not sound like much but in a million dollar company, that 1% is a huge chunk.
  • The backup configuration has been very handy in turn around time for failed equipment. I did have a homegrown way of backing up configurations but had to check daily and verify every backup. This becomes very time consuming and a waste of company time.
  • Only negative is the mapping. In the Cisco world CDP is a great way to map connections and they don't seem to do it that way.

  • Alerts IT team members when things go down after regular business hours. IT team is able to fix the issue before users arrive the next day.
  • Saves on system downtime and lost productivity
  • Remote monitoring means less staff hours spent checking for potential problems.

  • The ROI was met after alerting us of our first critical space issue, which allowed us to mitigate the issue without the server going down.

Progress WhatsUp Gold Scorecard Summary

What is Progress WhatsUp Gold?

Progress WhatsUp Gold (WUG) is designed to help network admins find and fix network problems before end users notice. Its web-based interactive mapping interface lets users see up/down availability and performance at-a-glance for everything connected to a network, on premises and in the cloud.

WUG is an on-premises solution designed for IT enterprises and MSPs. The solution helps them to manage their IT infrastructure and network activities. It offers tools for discovering, visualizing and monitoring network devices, displaying connections between devices and monitoring network status.

WhatsUp Gold can automatically discover anything connected to the network, including physical servers, cloud resources, storage devices, VMware and Hyper-V virtual machines as well as wireless devices. It helps IT admins to view, analyze and manage cross-device connections from a single interactive map. Admins can also monitor application performance and network traffic and manage network device configuration and change control processes. Any network activity falling outside of customizable thresholds triggers alerts sent via email, web, SMS or Slack. Alerts can also trigger self-healing actions or PowerShell scripts.
