Ottawa (PRWEB) May 26, 2006 –-
LPI Level Platforms Inc. today announced a new version of its flagship Managed Workplace 5.0 remote monitoring and management platform specifically designed for IT solution providers and digital home integrators that serve the growing small office/home office (SOHO) market.
The SOHO edition of Managed Workplace enables IT solution providers and home integrators to provide a full range of remote managed services to customers operating small peer to peer networks.
For solution providers with as few as 100 managed end customer sites, the new SOHO pricing provides the full capabilities of Managed Workplace 5.0 for $4.99 per site per month including up to five networked devices (PCs, printers, routers, media controllers and other IP based home automation devices, including externally hosted customer Web sites), or as little as $0.99 per device per month.
Solution provider partners receive a complete package of MSP business and technology training, marketing materials and full technical support. There are no extra charges.
For sites that include up to 10 devices, including two servers, solution providers can access the previously announced Small Business pricing at $14.99 per site per month.

Home integrators agree.
“We are already realizing a profit from managed services, especially from sophisticated home customers,” said Jordan Hermant, president of Toronto integrator Zedware. Hermant has been using Managed Workplace 5.0 to remotely manage 20 customers.
