The Problem

We are using Citrix User Profile Manager (UPM) with enabled profile streaming to manage and roam user data in a Citrix XenDesktop environment. We use Citrix Provisioning Server to provide our users with Windows 10 desktops. We have been facing issues in our environment which were having a negative effect on the user experience and leading to an increased number of helpdesk calls;

  • Logon times and profile loading times were excessive
  • Internet Explorer was crashing unexpectedly
  • Some users had in excess of 50,000 cookies in their profile
  • Multiple times users reported incomplete browsing history

The key results to us from implementing WebCache Manager were:

Avanite The technological world is moving at an ever-increasing rate and administrators are finding it difficult to keep abreast of new technologies. In addition, the world of user experience is changing with home computers being commonplace and users wishing to have the same free experience at work that they do at home. Software is also becoming more user focused with administrators finding it complicated to keep control over the endpoint devices. At Avanite we try to bridge that gap by producing software which gives the best user experience possible, whilst still allowing administrative control. Our WebCache Manager is the first product which brings control of web data, which has long gone uncontrolled. We hold true to our beliefs that progress is only accomplished by sharing knowledge and working together. We pride ourselves in building lasting relationships with our customers who see us as trusted advisors to them and their business.
