XIA Configuration: The automated network documentation tool

Capterra review badge

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.

We are faster and more effective in determining causes of incidents that occur within the managed infrastructure

We have achieved a real efficiency improvement after implementing and using XIA Configuration within our multi-client managed services company.

By using change management within XIA Configuration we are faster and more effective in determining causes of certain incidents that occur within the managed infrastructure.

We were so convinced of the value added by XIA Configuration that in addition to using it ourselves we decided to become a reseller for the product for the Dutch market.

Automatically keep infrastructure documentation up-to-date

Being an MSP, keeping infrastructure documentation up-to-date is a time consuming and resource intensive task.

With XIA Configuration’s agentless technology, the speed that we can now fully document our clients’ infrastructure is amazing. Once it's initially setup, everything is automatically documented as often as we want and the solution soon pays for itself.

From an MSP point of view, it is now one of our must have tools and our clients are blown away by the amount of detail it provides.
