"Tally Systems recognition and Vision64 are a perfect match, one that plays to the strengths of both technologies. This integration is one more demonstration of the ongoing need for accurate inventory, and fits Tally Systems strategy of providing that accuracy to all who need it through partnerships and integrations." "By combining Census Recognition Technology with Vision64, IT managers are able to meet significant challenges by extending the traditional concept of asset management and software distribution to focus on maintaining application availability into the future," said Marc Duthoit, Chairman and CEO of SWAN.
