Advantages of IT Documentation

59% of all network errors are caused in the physical layer.

A software for IT documentation and cable management prevents errors like these and turns IT- and TC- structures into a market advantage.

Pathfinder helps you document and manage all your IT and TC networks. Thus Pathfinder supplements classical network management systems (NMS) for active network technology monitoring. All network levels can be displayed including the so called layer 1 or physical layer. Pathfinder users are able to document the whole network including all passive network components like lines, cables, patch cables, plugs with just one software.

Additionally, Pathfinder helps you reducing your running costs in the long run. Why? With a professional network information system you create sustainable transparency in your network.

IT operations according to ITIL®
Documentation of the physical layer is part of the Configuration Data Management Base. CDMB is the basis for IT operations according to ITIL. Regulations like ISO 9001:2000 require a complete documentation of the physical layer as well as Euro-SOX or Basel II. With Pathfinder you comply efficiently and quickly with these requirements.
