logging, automatic escalations, email integration needs,
your workflow and management reporting requirements.
SMA is uniquely qualified to work with you to develop
and document these requirements because we have worked

software that needs to be in place prior to the
implementation of your HEAT solution. This may involve
specifying server, network software and other minimum
requirements to ensure compatibility and performance.

can modify the out-of-the-box system (which could serve
as your initial system with almost no modification) to
meet your specific needs. The customization process, if
required, can be completed in as little as 5 business
