Broadband Tools For Hire
Custom reporting, integration, migration, and operations tool development service
Tools for Hire is a unique usage-based development service provided by Birds-Eye.Net that allows
broadband service providers, cable operators, telephone companies, system integrators, hardware vendors, testing companies, repair companies, and Internet Service Providers (ISP)s to gain access to a growing library
of specialty reporting, testing, integration, migration, and network operations tools. Tools for Hire provides companies the luxury of access to this library of tools as well as top notch development resources without
having to pay salaries of expensive in-house software developers or outrageously high consulting fees.
Essentially, Tools for Hire eliminates your need to staff full-time development resources allowing you to free up more revenue and strengthen your bottom line. Best of all, you only pay for your tool use, not the the development time. Since this
service is completely usage-based, when you don't require any
programming resources or tools your not out of pocket for idle developers. This service is especially useful for companies who have had to cut back on their development staff during tough times or those who need developer help but don't want to pay consulting fees.
"Here is how it works": Sign up for one of the different service options (explained below). You can either pre-pay for your uses or sign up for more dedicated development/tools support (including on-call services). After you've signed up, simply log into the tools area and
select from a growing library of tools, download, and use. If you want something that is not on the list, no problem, send in your request and we turn it around for you as quickly as possible (1-10 working days). When we develop your new tool you don't pay for our development time (and you never will).
Instead, each use is tracked so it will either be deducted from your pre-paid uses or be billed to your company at the end of the month (depending on your service option). If you sign up for on-call service we additionally provide phone support for all tools, allow you to phone in new tool requests, and prioritize your
requests for new tools (turn-around is usually the same day).
Birds-Eye.Net Tools for Hire is available for immediate purchase and is offered as either a subscription driven service or pre-paid use service. These different service options are explained below:
- Pre-Pay (Most Common): Pre-pay Tools for Hire service allows you to purchase some number of uses for a very low price (between $5-$7) per use depending on the quantity. Each purchased use is compatible with all tools in the library as well as any tools you or someone else requests in the future. Upon
each completed run, a use is deducted from your total available uses. You can purchase additional uses at any time and these additional uses are immediately added to those you have available. When you completely exhaust your uses, you will not be able to use any of the tools you've downloaded until you
purchased additional uses. You can immediately start enjoying pre-pay tool uses today using any credit card -- see purchase information below.
- Subscription Driven Model: Provides a means for larger organizations to utilize the Tools for Hire tool library and development services for large numbers of field personnel and enjoy even greater savings. This service can track tool usage by user, tool, account number, and time (among other things). Companies are given an interface they
can use to manage (add and remove) their employees' access to tools and generate tool usage reports. Most companies expense their tool use to their clients - meaning they use this service to keep track of where different tools are used (which accounts) and then bill these clients for each of their respective uses. This is just one of many different ways the
subscription driven model is working today.
