Many premises-based phone system (PBX) manufacturers claim that the five year costs of their systems are lower than an equivalent cloud alternative. What the premises guys don’t tell you about is all the extra little hidden costs that come as a result of the limitations of the hardware and software in their systems. This guide will provide you with useful questions to ask your PBX manufacturer to ensure that you're getting the full picture on the cost of their system.
Questions to Ask During an Evaluation:
• Have you sized this system for my peak demand?
• Have you factored in the cost of site redundancy?
• How many hours of call recording are included?
• How is mobility supported? Do calls route in an out of the PBX for call treatment?
• What are the annual maintenance costs of the hardware and software in this system?
• Which third party systems have you integrated this PBX with?
Energy costs have become an increasing contributor to pumping systems Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). In fact, energy cost represents 40% of the TCO of a typical pump. It is possible to reduce the electrical consumption by at least 30% utilizing Variable Speed Drives while decreasing maintenance costs associated with the mechanical driven system.
This paper explains how to reduce TCO with a limited investment focused on three key areas: energy efficiency management, asset management, and energy cost management.

The Cloud; software as service across the Internet, is experiencing mass proliferation for everything from banking to CRM. Communications are part of this migration and offer a compelling solution over the retro, hardware-based systems known as PBX. This paper illustrates comparative anatomies of the old and new models. Major benefits of cloud communications are detailed, including the elimination of costs, removal of complexity for managing the system, alleviating IT resources, and the benefits of one system with a host of features. A deep-dive of the technology supporting the solution is included.

Somerset Orthopedic Associates (SOA) has always been on the cutting edge of medicine. In fact, SOA opened the first orthopedic-specific ambulatory surgical center (ASC) in the state of New Jersey in 1997. However, like many medical groups, SOA came to realize that when it came to practice management (PM) software, it had been holding onto an outdated system for too long. Although the seven-surgeon group was growing, so too were the frustrations and costs associated with its client-server system, not to mention concerns about keeping up with industry change. Determined to make the group more nimble, SOA’s Administrator of over 16 years, Alexandra Archibald, set out in search of a new PM-EHR solution.

When a government organization deploys lean workforce management practices, it affects their largest operational expense: the workforce. As the public sector moves to reinvent itself, workforce management systems and adopting lean labor practices are perhaps two of the most immediate and high-impact mechanisms. Lean practices help government organizations control labor costs and allow them to reallocate those savings into preserving critical programs, services, and jobs ... which is the very essence of the public sector mission.
Organizations are shifting to Cloud to improve agility, reduce costs and increase IT efficiency. To achieve the benefits promised by Cloud, your storage infrastructure needs to be virtualized and provide the required automation and management capabilities. Join this session to learn how you can quickly convert existing storage to Cloud storage, standardize advanced data protection capabilities, and utilize advanced data-driven analytics to optimize tiering across storage systems --- reducing per unit storage costs up to 50% and freeing up valuable IT budget.

More and more businesses are embracing workplace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) strategies as a method to reduce costs and stimulate productivity. These initiatives give employees, contractors, and business partners the power to remotely contribute, collaborate, and communicate with team members from familiar devices, anywhere around the world. To implement these strategies effectively however, IT teams must provide access to applications, business systems, collaboration platforms, and development environments without sacrificing end-user experiences, hindering their organization’s security posture, or inducing excessive costs. What many are finding is that traditional methods of desktop and application delivery and on-premises Virtualized Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) often cannot live up to this task, as they introduce new challenges upon implementation.
HP Cloud Solution for Microsoft is designed to provide a scalable, high-performance integrated infrastructure optimized for virtual environments built on Microsoft Hyper-V.

An appropriate time and attendance system that meets your organization’s needs can help to eliminate and even prevent many, if not most, of the negative aspects of inaccurate and unreliable timekeeping. Maintaining accurate and reliable time and attendance information makes it easier to keep a handle on labor costs, increases the accuracy of payroll, and reduces administration in the human resources (HR) department, thus saving time. This white paper outlines the top benefits of a time and attendance system and the positive effect automating your time and attendance process can have on your organization.
The restaurant industry is buzzing about automation. With labor costs expected to double and consumer demand for a seamless checkout experience, many restaurants are looking at technologies that can automate tasks in the front-of-house. But there are back-of-house processes that have yet to be fully automated. While auto-counting your inventory may be a thing someday, it’s not here yet.
So if you can’t automate the inventory management process, you can at least use tools that automate its more cumbersome aspects. Maximum labor output, higher levels of accuracy, and better accountability are possible with a system that automates certain tasks and enable manager productivity for on-the-job success.
After reading this eBook, you’ll know:
• The many inefficiencies generated by manual, spreadsheet-based counting methods.
• The innovations being made to inventory management technology.
• How modern, mobile inventory management tools will help your managers reduce costs and increase product

Patient falls were the largest category of adverse events reported at Barnes- Jewish Hospital. Progress in meeting targets for reducing falls and fall injury rates had been static despite multiple efforts. One component of the hospital’s Fall Reduction Program was a portable bed exit alarm system—a Bed-Check Classic-Check® control unit (CU) with Sensormat® pressure sensitive mat— widely used throughout the hospital. Due to high demand by staff, the CU was often not available, resulting in delayed care delivery and staff dissatisfaction. Loss or damage due to handoff between staff and the central service department resulted in additional resources and costs.
Read this case study to learn how Barnes-Jewish Hospital implemented Bed-Check® Fall Management Solution as a part of their Fall Reduction Program, resulting in decreased fall injury rates and improved staff satisfaction.
