Small and medium businesses are the lifeblood and catalyst of a healthy economy. Unfortunately, the SMB market is often overlooked and underserviced. Running a small to medium sized business has its unique set of IT challenges. Dealing with a limited budget, being able to build on and leverage existing IT investments in order to maximize a quick ROI, are all part of the same theme—doing more with less.

This is where Dell KACE sees an incredible opportunity. Today, we’re introducing the first in a new, innovative line of systems management solutions developed specifically for small businesses (from 50 to 200 employees). The Dell KACE M 300 Asset Management Appliances offers small businesses an easy, cost-effective and reliable solution for routine IT tasks such as: hardware and software inventory, software license compliance and asset tracking and management.

What really sets the M300 apart from anything on the market today is its simplicity—both in terms of ease of use and deployment. This new appliance is a true plug-and-play solution that virtually eliminates the repetitive and time-consuming tasks of software and hardware inventory management. The ability to be up and running in less than five minutes – even for a novice IT professional - is just the beginning. An intuitive user interface allows IT administrators to streamline IT procedures with just a few points and clicks of a mouse. In this way, the M300 offers a complete systems management solution right out of the box setting a new standard in convenience.

Once again, Dell KACE is leading the market in making systems management more accessible and affordable. The M300 is available today, priced at $2498, which includes a one year warranty and maximum of up to 200 nodes. If you manage IT resources for a small business we’d love to hear from you. We’re hosting a webinar on “Effective IT Inventory and Asset Management for Small Organizations: From Quagmire to Quick Fix” on July 21 at 10:00 a.m. Pacific/1:00 p.m. Eastern. The time savings you’ll experience using this appliance is incredible. You might even need to take up a new hobby.
