Maclellan Foundation Uses Bomgar to Provide Tech Support across the Globe

Bomgar, the leader in enterprise remote support solutions, today announced that Maclellan Foundation is using its remote support solution to provide reliable tech support to a geographically dispersed workforce. A 70-year-old private grant making foundation, Maclellan provides grants across the globe for leadership development and capacity building. Although the company is based in Chattanooga, Tennessee, employees travel throughout the country and around the world.

The Maclellan tech support team discovered Bomgar through a promotion with Dell KACE, which included two free Bomgar licenses with their KACE solution. “We are responsible for supporting multiple devices with varying operating systems for employees in various locations, including international traveling employees,” said Or Cingilli, director of technology, Maclellan. “Our previous remote support solution was not centrally managed, and also was not integrated with the KACE Kbox. These were needs that became apparent to us, so we decided to give Bomgar a try.”

After testing the Bomgar solution via the free license offer, Maclellan realized that it met their needs for providing multi-platform support regardless of the location of the support tech or the employee, and it integrated seamlessly with Dell KACE. “When we tried the licenses that came with our Kbox, we really loved Bomgar. When the latest version of Bomgar was released, we purchased our own appliance to have access to the full feature set of the solution. With a responsibility of supporting roughly 100 different devices, ranging from computers to mobile devices, having a reliable solution like Bomgar makes the tech support process much easier,” added Cingilli.

“Bomgar gives us greater flexibility in supporting users in more and more places. Since we are also Dell KACE customers, we can now link Bomgar chat transcripts that occur during remote sessions to the KACE ticket, which helps us a lot and saves time,” said Cingilli. “We can also initiate Bomgar sessions from the KACE ticket, which is very useful. Bomgar is just so reliable – it allows us to do our jobs more efficiently, which in turn keeps employees in the field more productive.”

Looking ahead, Maclellan plans to add a link to start a Bomgar chat to their grant request portal to help clients during the application process. “The more requests we get online, the more those customers are going to want help right then and there. Using Bomgar, we will be able to do so and streamline the application process.”

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018.

Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
