Remote management accesses, updates, and diagnose your devices from an easy to use, user interface. Esprida constantly maintains information about the status of your device, its current location, and its current configuration data. Settings updated on the device can be synchronized with Esprida Server.
Esprida LiveControl™is designed to manage thousands of devices. Any action you invoke on one device can be applied to all devices through an easy-to-use interface. Use the built-in tools to configure large sets of devices, apply diagnostic actions, recovery action rules, and maintenance tasks with a single click.
When a support engineer investigates an issue, they have a broad range of diagnostic tools available to them. Some of the key features are described below:
- Remote Control – remotely take over the screen on the device.
- Run Scripts – run batch scripts, shell scripts, WMI scripts with parameters from Esprida Server.
- Reboot – remotely reboot the device, and restart services
- Retrieve Files – Retrieve logs, configuration files from end point device.
- Take Screenshot – remotely take a screenshot on demand to find out what the user sees.
- Customize Remote Tasks – add your own remote tasks that are specific to the applications running on the device.
Esprida LiveControl automatically distributes software updates; operating system patches, advertisements and other digital files to your endpoint device. Distributions have scheduling, and time-window features to control bandwidth utilization on shared networks. Once distributed, content can be scheduled to run custom installation un-installation, activation, and deactivation scripts.
Content Inventory: Esprida LiveControl maintains inventory of all content packages remotely installed on your endpoint devices. No more guessing if employees successfully followed installation instructions or what version was installed. Esprida LiveControl takes the guesswork out of it.
Multiple Security Tier: From an operations perspective, OS patches, and advertisements are very different. Esprida has a multi-faceted security model to allow advertising agencies to upload promotions, IT organizations to upload patches, and store managers to choose locations and activation dates. Each group has security privileges for their tasks, without compromising the devices.
Esprida LiveControl enables near-real-time insight into your assets from a technical and business perspective.
Your support team will greatly benefit from knowing the hardware, software and geographic aspects of a device when they are identifying problems. They are no longer wasting time (and thus money) doing initial diagnostics to gather asset data. This information has already been gathered by Esprida LiveControl and is available for their use.
From a business perspective sales reports can be created in near real-time. This allows you to make changes to things like prices or promotions quickly when existing strategies are not panning out. Furthermore, marketing/promotion campaigns can quickly be adjusted, updated or completely nixed with immediate feedback from the consumers.
Alert and Notification Rules inform onsite staff, sales teams, support teams, and help-desk systems when a problem is detected in the field.
There are unlimited escalation levels to send notification rule if a problem isn't corrected within a specified time, all configurable on the user interface with just a few clicks. The content of the notification can be dynamically changed based on device data.
Proactive Error-Handling Rules: Self-healing rules proactively run a set of diagnostic and recovery commands when a problem is detected on a device. Automated error correction will dramatically improve your uptime.
Scheduled Maintenance Rules: Esprida allows you to centrally configure and update maintenance actions such as nightly reboots, and application re-calibration.
Scheduled Data Retrieval Rules: Automatically set data retrieval rules to retrieve data from devices on regular intervals. This data is transferred into the business database warehouse constantly to provide near-real time reports of market behavior. .
