The documentation is well written and easy to understand. The step-by-step instructions assist in deployment and configuration of the product. Administrators will appreciate the use of good quality screenshots that accompany the literature.
Centennial offers phone and email support. In addition, there is a website that contains downloads, technical documentation, a knowledge base and a user forum.
At £13.50, (A$29) Centennial’s DeviceWall is licensed on a per-seat basis and the seat count is typically comprised of the number of desktops, workstations, laptops and servers, where a customer expects an acceptable use policy to be enforced with regards to the transfer of files to removable storage devices. The pricing is based on a sliding per-seat scale, with discounts built in for larger purchases. A 100-seat installation would have a very acceptable list price of £1,350 (A$2,937)
