Centrix Software Launches U.S. Partner Program for Award-Winning Workspace Computing Solutions

Centrix Software, a leading provider of workspace computing solutions, today announced it has extended its highly successful EMEA Centrix Software Approved Partner Program to the U.S. market. It also disclosed that several prominent U.S. solutions providers , renowned for cloud, VDI and Windows 7 transformations, have already joined the program, including Presidio, RKON, VDX, IPM, Gotham Technology Group and Augmentity.

"The desktop transformation market presents a tremendous opportunity for U.S. solutions providers. Enterprises want to transition to Windows 7 and make best use of cloud technology and virtual desktops, but without a complete picture of how applications and content are currently being used, these projects won't succeed. By using Centrix WorkSpace Suite, solutions providers benefit from detailed workspace profiling and a next-generation workspace delivery platform that aggregates applications and content for end-users on multiple devices," said Karl Renneker, North American Channel Manager, Centrix Software. "We're extremely pleased that many of the U.S. market's most notable solutions providers have joined our partner program and recognize the value Centrix Software can bring to their business."

Key Partners Extend their Business with Centrix Software

"We partnered with Centrix Software because we want to help customers fast-track their VDI and cloud transformations and save money in the process. The intelligence we get from Centrix WorkSpace iQ analytics is unmatched. By combining those insights with Centrix WorkSpace Universal's application and content aggregator, we can deliver the next-generation workspace businesses need at a fraction of the time and cost," said Cameron Christo, Director, RKON.

"When it comes to desktop transformations, knowledge is power. Understanding which applications customers actually use-and how their employees use them-is critical to choosing which ones to migrate to Windows 7 or move to the cloud. By partnering with Centrix Software and leveraging their surprisingly rich analytics, VDX can easily determine usage across customers' applications, devices and users. We can complete more desktop migration projects and deliver greater value for our customers," said Ray Collazo, CIO, VDX.

"IPM has partnered with Centrix because of the value the software brings to our Windows 7 practice. The unparalleled application usage analytics has allowed us to accelerate and de-risk Windows 7 migration projects. In addition, Centrix's workspace aggregation capability has expanded these projects into full desktop transformation initiatives," said Adam Bari, Managing Director, IPM.

Centrix Software Approved U.S. Partner Program

Centrix Software's partner program is targeted at service and solution providers that specialize in helping enterprises conduct large-scale desktop transformations, improve application delivery and make more informed business technology decisions.

Solutions providers that partner with Centrix Software win more deals by showing prospects how they can deliver desktop transformation projects faster and a reduced cost, utilizing the industry's only analytics solution that can determine actual application usage. Partners average a 50% close rate for partner-identified opportunities and a 5:1 attach rate when selling Centrix Software solutions with complementary professional services. They realize high profit margins and retain them, even with renewal business.

The Centrix WorkSpace Suite-including WorkSpace iQ and WorkSpace Universal-is the industry's only next-generation workspace solution that combines detailed workspace profiling with a technology-independent platform that aggregates applications and content from all virtual, physical, web, and cloud sources. Partners can use Centrix WorkSpace to make informed technology decisions based on real-time application and content usage data, and provide corporate users with secure, self-service, policy-controlled access to all resources from any device and any location.
