BMW Group Financial Services UK Selects Ericom Blaze™ to Improve Terminal Server 2003 Performance and User Productivity

Droitwich, Worcestershire, (April 19, 2011) - Ericom, a leading global provider of Application Access, Virtualisation and RDP acceleration solutions, announced today that BMW Group Financial Services UK, has chosen Ericom Blaze to improve the display performance of their Terminal Server based applications used by their call centre employees. Ericom Blaze addresses the usability and deployment challenges presented by slow, remote desktop connections by delivering a superior local PC-like experience and fast remote desktop connections at speeds up to 10 times that of RDP — across WANs and congested LANs.

BMW Group Financial Services UK, based in Hook, Hampshire, offers a wide range of options for financing the purchase of BMW and MINI vehicles to both private and corporate buyers. In addition, BMW Group Financial Services UK also offers a selection of insurance products to cover car, home and travel.

Ericom Managing Director for the UK, Ian Platt, commented, “We are delighted that BMW Group Financial Services UK has chosen Ericom Blaze as their solution for accelerating their RDP based infrastructure. Ericom Blaze is one of the most cost effective ways to address performance issues when attempting to deliver applications, PDFs, and graphics across networks with high latency and low bandwidth. Ericom Blaze delivers a faster, more productive user experience.”

Poor network performance due to latency and bandwidth restrictions impacts negatively both on the employee’s experience and productivity, which ultimately results in user frustration and potential project failure.

  • A software only solution for accelerating RDP based network traffic across any network, such as LAN, WAN, Wireless, 3G, ADLS, GPRS
  • Integrates seamlessly into both Remote Desktop Services / Terminal Server and Virtual Desktop infrastructures
