If you take a gander at our customer list, you’ll probably notice that many numerous large companies use netTerrain (and that is, by no means, our complete customer list). We are not, however, a company that just offers software for large companies: we have customers from small to large. Our customers range from the one person consulting organizations all the way up to the 50,000 device organization. We want to help anyone who needs a solution like ours.

netTerrain is Designed for Companies of All Sizes

The benefits of deploying DCIM software for smaller IT departments are endless. You can cut power costs, stop data loss if and when an integral member of your team leaves, avoid team stress and get everyone out on time for the day, ensure uptime, and make sure you’re optimizing limited space.

Unfortunately, many smaller businesses may shy away from even looking into IT documentation software such as netTerrain. For example, we recently heard from a prospective customer who needs a new solution for managing assets, floor plans, IPs, power, and so on. Then they said that they were a small team, with just 20 cabinets and that they were having trouble finding right-sized DCIM software. It’s a good thing they contacted us: we offer scalable pricing models that accommodate any size infrastructure and any budget (you can check them out here).

More good news? You don’t need a huge team to tackle and implement netTerrain. Learning and deploying netTerrain is easy — no matter the size of your business: you can customize our software, model your own devices (or have us model them for you), get priority support whenever you need it (and talk to an actual human being, not a robot …although we do have a robot option, if you prefer).

netTerrain’s Pricing is Small Business Friendly

How do we charge for netTerrain? For us, it’s not really about the racks: it’s about what you need to document. You may have 20 racks — but if they are not all full then you’re not getting the most bang for your buck if you have to pay for a software by the rack. So…why not pay for what you are really using?

That’s not to say it’s per-piece but it’s per-object (with some minimum threshold like 100 objects). We find this is much more in line with what a small business will need. So, for example, you may start at 100 and then add on as needed with growth. The other side to consider? Time. Regardless of if you are a small company or larger, why start paying for X objects or racks if it will take you 6 months to get to the upper end of what you want to document? With netTerrain, it’s easy to start small and add as you go. This gives you time to prove it’s the correct solution for your problem. It’s better to start small, build your project and processes up, and then you can add to the investment.

netTerrain Gives You Flexibility

Finally, if you are a small business that needs a solution like this: do you need an on-premise solution or a Cloud-based one? We offer both (and the pricing for either is similar. With a Cloud-based solution, you have the added benefit not having to manage the hardware or really software for that matter (which gives you a good price and fewer headaches when you start out).

To sum up, netTerrain works well for companies of all sizes. Whether you’re a one-person consultant or a 50,000+ device organization, netTerrain can help you tackle your IT problems with an easy-to-use, supported, and ROI-driven platform.
