SQL Beacon was developed to help you monitor multiple client environments and tailor thresholds and alerts to suit the needs of individual clients. SQL Beacon is a monitoring tool designed speciﬁcally for consulting companies – allowing you to monitor multiple client environments without asking clients to purchase monitoring software or sacriﬁcing your margin for tool vendors. SQL Beacon was designed by consultants for consultants.
Monitor multiple client environments with one tool – SQL Beacon gives you the ability to tailor thresholds and alerts to suit individual client requirements.
Working on a retainer model? It can be difficult to find the balance between demonstrating value and profitability. With SQL Beacon, automatically send your clients daily and weekly reports to detail all the good work you achieved for them.
Monitoring your client environments with SQL Beacon allows you to detect areas that need work, uncovering opportunities for additional project revenue while also providing the technology you need to build a managed service practise.
Spend more time solving problems and doing what you’re good at. Because SQL Beacon is monitoring all the time, the information you need is available at your fingertips. There’s no need to work with another third party organisations to extract that data you need.
Monitoring is a key element of providing remote database administration services. Purchasing a monitoring tool from one of the big 5 vendors quickly eats into your margin and using your clients monitoring tool of choice (if any) requires you to have in-depth knowledge of a range of tools on the market as you scale your business. With SQL Beacon, you keep your costs down and get the data you need.
Providing superior customer service takes more than a good DBA. Strengthen client relationships by being extra-responsive. SQL Beacon detects events before they escalate into issues so you can be proactive, not reactive. Your clients won’t ring you with a problem, you’ll ring them first to let them know you’re already handling it. Improving the relationship with your clients and increasing revenue from your retainer.

By giving clients access to their own MyVirtualDBATM portal, you are providing your clients with a single point of truth for the status of their SQL Servers. The MyVirtualDBATM portal gives your clients access to all the insights they need from real-time performance stats to capacity planning data. Each portal can be branded so your clients have peace of mind about working with you.
Clients can see the improvements you’re making over time. Although they may be outsourcing their SQL Server support to you, they’re remain in the know of everything that’s going on. And that doesn’t come with other monitoring tools.

This report can be branded just like your MyVirtualDBATM portal. If you purchase an SQL Beacon license, you have the option to whitelabel the Daily Healthcheck Report and your MyVirtualDBATM portal.
The Daily Healthcheck Report is automatically sent to your clients with your own fonts, brand colors and logos so that it looks like a report coming from your organisation rather than the SQL Beacon tool itself. We completely re-skin your MyVirtualDBATM portal so that your customer feels like they’re logging in to a portal your organisation has put together, rather than SQL Beacon.Request a Demo
