It’s our company’s mission to provide the best tools to meet our customers’ flexible work needs and making mobile support available across products and devices is a priority focus.”– Lisa Reeves, vice president and general manager of Access and Cloud, Citrix Online.
- “Despite the number of competitive offerings that have come into the remote access services space over the last several years, Our Worldwide Remote Access Services Software 2010 to 2014 Forecast and 2009 Vendor Shares report shows that Citrix Online’s GoToMyPC has once again been able to maintain its significant lead in terms of market share and revenue. We attribute this to the ongoing customer loyalty the company has engendered that in turn continues to result in word-of-mouth referrals.” – Stacy Crook, senior analyst of mobile enterprise and remote access for IDC.
- “GoToMyPC has made life easier because it’s allowed us to do absolutely everything administrative we need to in the office – out of the office. There are no more limitations. Before, it wasn’t possible to remotely access our property management system which is essential to our hospitality business, but now it’s simple to retrieve information as well as control inventory from home or while traveling instead of calling requests in. GoToMyPC has delivered greater efficiency and with the introduction of the iPad app, it’s even more useful. No need to lug around a laptop or worry about being connected, and it’s a business advantage really. Clients will eat up the fact that our sales team can whip out their iPad to immediately respond to a request. GoToMyPC for iPad will without a doubt be a regular tool for our business needs.” – Jean-Francois Vary, general manager of Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco, California.
