Xytech Dash: Cloud-based management for small studios

Xytech, makers of facility management software, is targeting smaller facilities with its newly launched cloud-based software, Dash. The subscription-based app takes just three days to install and uses security offered by the Microsoft Azure Managed Cloud.

With Dash, Xytech can now manage the end-to-end business cycle for small- and medium-sized studios. These customers range from boutique post facilities to large universities with sophisticated media departments to corporate communication departments.

The monthly subscription model for Dash offers access to all dashboards, graphs and charts, plus customers can manage resources, handle scheduling tasks, cost forecasting, invoicing and reporting all on one system. Dash also offers the option of a built-in library management program as well as a bidding module, enabling users to bid on a project and have it accepted on the spot.

The new web interface allows users easy access to the Dash applications from any supported web browser. “We listened to our clients and adapted our software into a series of directed workflows allowing users to schedule, raise a bid and generate an invoice,” says Xytech COO Greg Dolan. “Additionally, we’ve made installation support fast and seamless on Dash, so our team can easily teach our clients and get them up and running in just a few days.”

The software has a low per-user price and is available on a monthly subscription basis. The company is offering early adopters of Dash an early-bird discount, which will be announced shortly.
