nGenx Powers Workforce Mobility With Cloud Enablement of Microsoft Office 2016


nGenx, a cloud services pioneer in the delivery of hosted workspaces, including applications, data, and desktops, today announced inclusion of the world's most popular office productivity suite, Microsoft Office 2016, in the nGenx Cloud Application Catalog. With the new addition, nFinity nWorkspace customers have cloud access to this and other business critical applications on a wide range of computing devices, including desktops, laptops, tablets, and smartphones.

According to Market Research, an independent research organization, "The cloud office and collaboration productivity applications market is anticipated to reach $21.6 billion by 2018. The market growth comes as enterprises select this more affordable option to get productivity tools to users as opposed to server licensing of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Exchange. Cloud delivery of systems in a shared workload environment is part of the cloud computing business model."

Microsoft Office 2016 is now available as a cloud application from the nGenx Cloud Application Catalog, which now features more than 1,800 titles. Licenses come as a monthly subscription with no annual commitments. Purchasers choose Microsoft Office 2016 as a stand-alone solution (via Office365) or through integration with nFinity nWorkspace (Office 365 or Microsoft SPLA), the company's Workspace as a Service (WaaS) platform. Key advantages of purchasing Microsoft Office 2016 from nGenx include exceptional personalized support at the time of installation and thereafter. nGenx ensures the deployment and transition to Microsoft Office 2016 in the cloud is performed smoothly. On-going support is provided via phone to answer access and other questions.

nGenx app services supports critical line-of-business applications and provides access anywhere and from any computing device. With more than a decade of experience in working with Microsoft solutions, nGenx has the understanding to make sure customers have a positive experience with the application when it is used.

nGenx also announced today that the company has joined the Microsoft Office 365 Shared Computer Activation (SCA) Program. The program was started in 2014 so that multiple Office 365 users can share the same hardware in a customer dedicated self-hosted environment, on dedicated third-party hosted infrastructure, or in Windows Azure. The primary benefit of this program is that it allows customers to take advantage of existing licensing investments when deploying Microsoft Office 2016 to the cloud.

"Businesses today are seeking greater workforce mobility and nGenx delivers," said Jim Lancaster, CTO, Sagiss. LLC. "Device agnostic access with integration to other business apps and Microsoft Office 2016 is a game changer for businesses that go beyond the limits of four walls. nGenx powers these businesses with productivity gains that make a substantial difference to the bottom line."

"We expect the Microsoft Office 2016 productivity suite to rank among our most popular cloud applications," said JD Helms, president, nGenx. "As with all our applications, users have the option to access them as an application service or to use in conjunction with nFinity nWorkspace for a complete workspace as a service."
