BAUER Group Deploys FrontRange HEAT ITSM Suite
Milpitas | Monday, March 11, 2013 — FrontRange, the leading provider of hybrid IT service management solutions, today announced that BAUER Group, an international construction and machinery provider, is now using the HEAT IT Service Management (ITSM) suite to provide world-class IT and help desk support for its employees. The solution comprises HEAT Client Management paired with HEAT IT Service Management and allows BAUER to manage desktops and servers as well as IT services from a single platform. The solution was customized to meet BAUER’s specific requirements and support the Group’s business processes.
In selecting the new software, it was important to BAUER that the solution scale easily, allow integration of existing scripts, and have the capability to seamlessly integrate the Group’s overseas locations. Not only did the FrontRange solution fulfill these requirements, it also made a rapid implementation with flexible customization possible. The FrontRange team was able to use its expertise to provide professional support and make a positive impression during both the selection and implementation phases of the project.
Since the switch to HEAT, the FrontRange solution has done more than just handle the Group’s complex software packaging needs — it is also simplifying internal approval processes with its automated workflows.

Choosing FrontRange turned out to be an excellent decision — the solution gives us everything we need,” emphasized Marco Fröhlich, head of IT Support and the helpdesk at BAUER AG. “The FrontRange solution is a perfect complement to the software that we’ve developed in-house.”

With our platform, their organization now has an ITSM solution that can easily be used even outside of standard corporate IT infrastructures while remaining flexible enough to fulfill the most complex requirements.”
