International Charity United Bible Society Chooses Ericom’s PowerTerm WebConnect to provide secure remote application access


DROITWICH, England (April 21, 2009) - Ericom announced today that the London-based charity United Bible Society (UBS) has selected PowerTerm WebConnect to provide secure remote application access.

Ericom’s PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView is recognised by many as the leading Citrix alternative solution providing secure access at a significantly lower cost than the alternatives.

The United Bible Societies (UBS) is a fellowship of 145 national Bible Societies that serves across 200 countries and territories. The United Bible Society is a non-profit organisation devoted to translating, publishing, and distributing the Bible at affordable costs. In addition the society extends its charitable work to include literacy programs for those who cannot read, audio products for those who are visually impaired, and Bible-based HIV/AIDS resources for those who are suffering and their carers. Special programs are developed for those with challenges such as women facing abuse, children living without parents and people in prison.

Ericom Managing Director for the UK, Ian Platt, commented, “With the current economic conditions putting additional strains on discretionary spending, the charity sector is feeling significant pressure to ensure costs are reduced wherever possible. At a 1/3 of the cost of Citrix we have established ourselves as the #1 Citrix alternative. I am glad we can help the charity sector save money, so that they have more money for their front line activities.”
