Appliance Deployment Feature: NEI Leads Session at Remote Service Implementation Conference

By Marisa Torrieri, TMCnet Editor

Claire Ortega, senior services product manager at NEI, will present the session “Maximizing Fully-Secured Solutions for Legacy and New Deployments in a Down Economy” at the 4th Annual Remote Service Implementation conference, NEI has announced
According to NEI, a provider of application platforms, appliances and deployment services for software developers, OEMs and service providers worldwide, the session will explore how using hardware or virtual appliances can provide long-term flexibility in monitoring field units.
Ortega will discuss ways to lower operations and service costs with full lifecycle management, deployment methods and remote monitoring solutions using a variable-cost model for improved economies of scale.
IQPC’s Remote Service Implementation conference is a leading cross-industry remote diagnostics and smart services event for service executives in North America.
At this year’s event, industry thought leaders in prognostics, data analytics, services marketing and remote tools will gather to discuss how to use remote strategies to increase revenue streams, cut costs and maximize product lifecycles in a down economy.
But not even a down economy can keep opportunity from knocking, Greg Shortell, CEO, NEI, told TMCnet, in an end-of-year Q&A.
“I have a small sign in my office that reads ‘Just because there is a recession does not mean we have to participate!’ and that was the approach we took throughout what we believed would be a tough economy,” Shortell told TMCnet. “Despite its economic challenges, 2009 turned out to be a very good year for NEI. We accomplished nearly all of our key objectives, including an accelerated pace of design wins with a focus on larger run-rate business opportunities. During 2009 we invested in and/or upgraded out IT systems and infrastructure, bringing new bid/quote, performance appraisal and maintenance contract management systems on line, among others. We focused hard on managing our inventory and working capital, which helped us to generate cash throughout the year. From a results standpoint we had 63 design wins in fiscal 2009 compared to 44 in the prior year which added 33 new customers. This puts us in a strong position as we enter 2010.”
