With today’s explosive growth in store technology, retailers are struggling to manage, protect and maintain their expanding assets. Toshiba Remote Management Agent with IBM Systems Director delivers a set of robust, easy-to-use tools enabling retailers to remotely view and control their systems from a single console—including POS systems, attached peripherals, kiosks, self-checkout lanes, and in-store servers. New enhancements extend abilities to improve operational efficiency, employee productivity, customer advocacy and utilization of IT resources.

Feature Benefits

Smarter software management with new “Update Manager” feature Leverages a powerful platform to distribute and maintain software for your retail systems, minimizing the complexity of introducing new systems, improving IT staff processes and streamlining implementation of new, cost-effective, competitive changes.
New “red, yellow, green” indicators for health status – pre-configured with policies for Toshiba POS systems, self-service, and attached I/O Enables you to identify problems more quickly—even before they happen—which can lead to reduced service costs, improved employee productivity, better customer satisfaction and a longer life for your retail systems.
Asset tracking and enhanced IT inventory Having comprehensive hardware and software information at your fingertips on a single console allows end-to-end management of retail systems throughout the enterprise. It helps you plan upgrades, reduce service costs and maintain consistent levels of hardware and software in your retail environment.
