In addition to the main campus the college has approximately 33 regional locations

Prior to installing Pulseway, Highland CC had been using an alternative Operations
Management System which had been in operation for quite some time. The network
administration team was that not entirely satisfied with its performance. In particular,
it was not easy to use and it’s tracking capabilities and general operational setup was
insufficient for the College’s requirements.
Highland CC purchased the Enterprise Server software to monitor and manage their
campus and regional locations. Pulseway Enterprise software allows the user to
monitor remotely located servers from one license and all from the same device.
Since the installation of Pulseway, Highland CC has enjoyed a significant improvement
in the general monitoring and ready access visibility for such things as hard drive
space, CPU and memory usage metrics and logged in\active users.
Joshua Berry, Network Administrator, stated, "The features and the application
updates/enhancements that the PC monitoring team has put out in the last year have
been smooth and beneficial".
