PanTerra's Refurbished Worldsmart a Boon for Administrators

With the release of new administration tools that improve Worldsmart scale for mid-market enterprises, PanTerra (News - Alert) Networks has demonstrated its ability to cut costs, save time and enhance security, by making it easier to implement and manage tasks faster and with fewer resources, from anywhere in the world.

The tools simplify management functions by allowing enterprises to custom-tailor their solution to their existing IT infrastructure. That means, Worldsmart can support either single or multiple admins and define roles and privilege levels to different administrators within an account.

This is a very powerful feature as it enables organizations (especially larger ones) to create a hierarchy of administrators, which allows local administration of users as well as centralized control of higher-level functions.

With Worldsmart centralizing communications into a browser-based administration portal, administrators just need a single login to manage users and accounts, customizing per- user features as required.  Accounts can be created, setup from a single spreadsheet in a very short time and account configurations can be saved. Even account billing can be customized.

With the influx of various devices onto the corporate scene, security has become a concern. Enhanced security features in Admin 5.0 makes managing and controlling of all access devices, much easier. Built-in authentication allows restriction of features as per needs. As a few applications cover the security of all devices, there is no need to implement and manage separate security applications for each kind of device.

Several PanTerra customers have been impressed with the ability to unify administrative access and cut overheads especially when migrating from legacy equipment. Sunderland networks, a PanTerra customer had this to say.

“The marriage of secure unified administrative access for all WorldSmart services, and more specifically the improved group and mobile administration and intuitive import function, reduced many man-hours off the system cutover," said Bill Sutherland, president and CEO of Sutherland Networks.
