UK fashion icon Jaeger replaces Citrix with Ericom PowerTerm WebConnect to reduce costs and increase efficiencies
Jaeger modernises Terminal Server infrastructure - improves performance at a lower cost while empowering users with secure application access from its Wyse thin clients
Droitwich, Worcestershire, UK , (March, 5 2008) - Ericom has confirmed that leading British fashion house Jaeger has replaced its aging Citrix infrastructure with Ericom’s PowerTerm WebConnect gaining the double benefit of improved performance at a lower cost.
For the same investment as updating their existing Citrix licenses, Jaeger was able to completely refresh its terminal server infrastructure with 64 bit servers and purchase all required PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView licenses with support.
Jaeger can now take advantage of the performance benefits of 64 bit computing and deliver applications securely across the organisation using their existing Wyse thin clients.
As a premium brand fashion retailer operating in the very competitive UK retail sector, Jaeger is constantly searching for savings within its business units while ensuring that it improves its business agility and effectiveness. Jaeger was able to achieve this by deploying Ericom’s Citrix alternative solution, PowerTerm WebConnect RemoteView.
Jaeger is a luxury British brand renowned for designing stylish, innovative and superb quality womenswear, menswear and accessories. Founded 122 years ago, Jaeger is firmly established in the fashion market as a premium brand. Jaeger currently has over 120 shops in the UK and Europe plus stores in Montreal, Japan, Dubai, Taiwan, Chile and Korea. Jaeger is synonymous with innovative designs and luxurious fabrics; creating vintage pieces of the future.
Working with Netstore, an Ericom business partner, Jaeger were able to gain additional benefits beyond what they were achieving with their old Citrix licenses.
Ericom Managing Director for the UK, Ian Platt, commented “Reducing costs and increasing efficiencies are key issues for many of today’s businesses regardless of the market they operate in. Retailing on the high street is as tough as it gets. We are delighted that such a fashion icon as Jaeger has chosen Ericom as their secure application access solution.”
