Furmanite replaces Citrix with Ericom’s Server Based Computing solution for worldwide application access from remote offices
Ericom® PowerTerm® WebConnect chosen for its cost effectiveness, ease of support, fast implementation and superior printing technology
Closter, NJ (February 12, 2008) - Ericom Software Inc., a leader in Application Access and Virtualization solutions for Windows Terminal Servers, Virtual Desktops, Blade PCs and legacy host systems, has announced another Citrix replacement, this time in a bid to provide Furmanite’s (NYSE: FRM) remote employees and vendors with an easy to use solution for access to applications, including their enterprise ERP system, Microsoft’s Dynamics SL.
After rigorous evaluation, Furmanite, a worldwide technology services company with 1,800 employees in 16 countries on 5 continents, selected Ericom’s PowerTerm WebConnect for its quick and easy implementation and quality of support. Additional benefits included Ericom’s universal printing capabilities, load balancing, single sign-on and lower management overhead.
Initially, Furmanite used a hosted IT environment implementing Citrix as its solution, to enable remote access to their enterprise ERP system, Microsoft Dynamics SL.
“When we brought the IT in-house from a hosted environment, we were concerned about the amount of work that our IT department would have if we went with Citrix,” said Dale Hanna, Director of Global Network Infrastructure. “I’m happy to say it took only one day to deploy Ericom’s solution in our environment. During a month of rigorous worldwide testing, we succeeded in addressing all our pain points from our previous environment.”
“After running live with Ericom’s solution for the past 3 to 4 months, we haven’t had a single issue with it. It turned out exactly as I hoped it would - everything is thumbs up - the system works as well as Citrix and the driverless printing works flawlessly,” Dale concluded.
"We are very pleased that we could help Furmanite address its growing need for secure remote application access with minimal management overhead," said Ilan Paretsky, VP of Marketing for Ericom Software. "Today's geographically dispersed organizations, such as Furmanite, require a global reach, and our solution enables these enterprises to cost-effectively enable their remote employees and vendors to access key business applications from any location at any time.
