We recommend XIA Configuration to anyone looking to automate the production of their server documentation

We're really happy with XIA Configuration. It automates what used to take 2 days in no time at all and it can be run as often as you like. We use it on all our Windows Servers, Windows PCs, Active Directory, Citrix Farms and our VMware environment to produce the documentation we need for our external auditors.

The support from CENTREL Solutions has been excellent. We raised a few queries and the responses were prompt and very helpful.

We would certainly recommend XIA Configuration to anyone looking to automate the production of their server documentation as it has saved us a great deal of effort.
