Revere Electric Supply Selects RingCube vDesk for Sales Force Mobility, Increased Productivity and Business Continuity

RingCube Technologies, the leading provider of managed virtual workspaces, today announced that Revere Electric Supply has selected RingCube vDesk as a key component in the company’s business continuity solution and to enable secure computing for field sales. RingCube vDesk is a high-performance enterprise desktop virtualization solution that simplifies the creation, access and management of Windows desktops through Workspace Virtualization. In the event of a natural disaster or severe weather, vDesk will enable Revere Electric Supply employees that use a corporate PC in the office to access their desktop computing environment within a vDesk virtual workspace running on an employee owned laptop and remain productive.

“Our goal was to enable ourselves to remain productive in the event of unforeseen occurrences,” said Mike Prepelica, director of information technology, Revere Electric Supply Company. “We first looked at solutions from large VDI vendors but vDesk was the only solution that could deliver the performance and usability we required for our remote workers. We recently experienced a major snow storm in Illinois that prevented many of our employees from coming into the office. With vDesk, we can enable our employees to work remotely and still get their work done.”
