Seat Management

Definition - What does Seat Management mean?

Seat management refers to the management and coordination of all workstations on a single network, including all associated hardware and software.

Techopedia explains Seat Management

For a single network, seat management may include services such as installation, operation and maintenance of all hardware and software at each workstation. This is often provided on a per-workstation seat basis, where each workstation represents a single individual.

  • Help-desk support
  • Hardware and software installation

The benefits of using a seat management service provider include:

  • Reduced operating costs
