The Central Management Environment (CME)* provides a single point of access for Akixi Administrators to view, manage and administrate all their Akixi customers from within a single environment, with a single login.

To access the CME administration area of the application, left-click the hamburger menu located in the top-left of the portal and select “Administration” followed by "Central Management Environments" found underneath. 


The CME also has the added benefit of allowing Akixi Administrators to access billing CDRs and summaries for all their customer sites from a single location. CMEs can be used to store collections of other CMEs for housekeeping and management purposes.
