LDM Maintenance

SVLive1 Maintenance

Ensure LDM is part of Standard Operating Environment

At the time of implementation, LDM is added to the Standard Operating Environment (SOE) and deployed to desktops and laptops at sites that Property would like to capture real-time utilization of space.

The LDM must remain part of the SOE throughout the duration on the service. Newer versions of LDM may be required to be rolled out post implementation, and this will be provided by your Customer Relationship Manager (CRM).
