SIEMENS BUSINESS SERVICES, INC. PARTNERS WITH TALLY SYSTEMS FOR WEB-BASED ASSET TRACKING Monday 18 February 2002 PDF Print Hosted WebCensus PC inventory service integrated in Siemens IT management services Working together to provide a unique and compelling web-based IT asset tracking service for businesses worldwide, Siemens Business Services, Inc. (SBS) one of the world’s leading providers of IT infrastructure solutions and services and a segment of Siemens AG (NYSE: SI) - and Tally Systems today announced an agreement for SBS to host Tally Systems’ WebCensus PC inventory service as a part of Siemens IT management services. Tally Systems WebCensus offers SBS a web-based platform for managing hundreds of thousands of PCs for its customers through a single hosted installation, gathering a complete inventory of PC hardware and software quickly and easily. WebCensus will give SBS a strong competitive advantage over other service providers that rely on traditional packaged-and-installed asset management products that require extensive infrastructure and support resources. “WebCensus gives us a clear advantage. Its ease of use is very compelling,” said Gerhard Cerny, CIO at Siemens Business Services. “We have access to the best inventory technology available without having to implement a complex infrastructure or manage complex software installed at our customer sites. A single web installation can service all of our customers simultaneously. This partnership with Tally Systems offers our clients key advantages they most need in this time of uncertainty: low cost and a quick return on investment.” Tally Systems WebCensus delivers the most accurate IT asset data possible with a unique web-based delivery that requires no installation or management, and uses Tally Systems patented Census Recognition Technology™ at its core. As a hosted service, WebCensus removes the burden from both the customer and the service provider for managing software installations and upgrades, servicing accounts, even managing day-to-day help-desk operations. Siemens Business Services will host their installation of WebCensus at their Mason, Ohio, headquarters. “This partnership with Siemens highlights the strength of the hosted-application model in providing high-value services at a low cost, for both the customer and the service provider,” said John Mahon, Vice President EMEA of Tally Systems. “At a time when organisations are looking to maximise the value of their IT investments, WebCensus offers cost savings, infrastructure efficiency, and improved business effectiveness. WebCensus is a perfect fit for SBS's aim of applying best practices to the IT value chain of process, technology, and people.” About Tally Systems Tally Systems delivers innovative IT asset tracking solutions to ensure effective technology investment and successful IT projects through partners such as Siemens SBS, IBM Global Services, CompuCom, and NCR.
