Ericom Announces Distributor Partnership with Actual Virtual to Deliver Desktop Virtualization Solutions in the UK
Together the Companies Aim to Double UK Channel Network and Offer an Alternative to Citrix and Dell vWorkspace
Ericom Software, a global leader in application access and desktop virtualization solutions, announced that it has partnered with Actual Virtual to distribute its product line in the UK. Together the companies will also offer a desktop virtualization alternative to organisations seeking to replace end-of-life solutions from Citrix and Dell.
“In carefully assessing the needs of the UK market, especially with the looming of end-of-life of several competing versions and product lines, we decided to beef up the distribution model and Actual Virtual proved to be the most resourceful partner,”” said Gilad Haver, Vice President of Sales EMEA at Ericom Software. “With Citrix phasing out version 6.5 of their desktop virtualization product and Dell announcing that they are ceasing to further develop their vWorkspace product, Ericom is well-positioned to offer a robust and powerful alternative that is also cost-effective.”
Actual Virtual and its expertise and experience in delivering desktop virtualization solutions, fully complements Ericom’s offering, which makes this relationship a perfect match.
“Ericom’s technology is pushing the boundaries in desktop virtualization and browser-based remote access and we believe they offer a unique alternative to Citrix, Dell and other vendor solutions,” explained Simon Greer, managing director at Actual Virtual. “We know our partners are looking for ways they can deliver applications and desktops to their users. A lot of solutions around at the minute either over-complicate things or are too expensive. Ericom directly addresses those issues and provides a cost-effective but very comprehensive way of delivering desktops and applications.”
Ericom currently has approximately 40 partners in the UK, the companies are aiming to double the channel network in two years.
Added Greer, “We are interested in proactive partners who have a keen interest in providing customers with these types of solutions.”
