Industry Leader Building Robust Partner Network in North America to Meet Growing Demand for Proven, Cost-Effective User Workspace Management Technology
PHILADELPHIA, PA, JANUARY 20, 2010 —
Following the recent announcement that Klaus Besier has joined as Chairman of its Board of Directors, RES Software, the proven leader in user workspace management, today further established its presence in North America with the opening of a new headquarters in Philadelphia, PA. The new office, which reflects the company’s continued global expansion, will support the growing demand for RES Software’s industry leading user workspace management solutions from customers and partners across the North American market. The company has also added several new sales, marketing and business development executives to support its expansion into this strategic market.
With the virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) market expected to grow exponentially in the next several years and Windows 7 migrations underway, today’s organizations will face significant challenges managing these infrastructures, specifically at the desktop, an area which is critical to overall workplace performance. RES Software is expanding into North America to enable better support and services for customers and partners in this region that are looking to solve these issues. The company’s user workspace management technology helps customers minimize these challenges ensuring a quick, seamless migration that provides users with continuous access to the desktop tools they need to complete their jobs. Further, because this is a centrally-managed, automated solution it reduces the amount of time and money that IT organizations must devote to overseeing the desktop infrastructure, saving significant time and money that will be allocated to other mission critical business objectives.
RES Software will drive North American operations out of its new office, located just 20 minutes west of Philadelphia, including sales, marketing and business development initiatives. Paramount to this effort will be building a robust North American sales channel. RES Software offers the industry’s most complete solution to help its partners address the needs of customers operating physical or virtual desktop platforms from companies like Citrix, Microsoft and VMware. The company works exclusively with its channel partners to enable and accelerate customer projects within their environments. As a result, RES Software partners are able to achieve higher margin points and expand their customer relationships with organizations operating on these platforms.
“RES Software is extremely excited to launch our North American headquarters. We see a tremendous opportunity for our unique, cost-effective user workspace management technology in this critical market,” said Jim Kirby, RES Software’s President of the Americas. “Our goal is to replicate the success RES Software has seen in Europe, bringing the company’s proven solutions to customers in North America, helping them dramatically reduce the total cost of their desktop populations. With a dedicated headquarters in this region we will now be able to better serve our users in this market and more aggressively build our partner network and customer base in North America.”
RES Software’s new headquarters will also offer robust support services and product testing facilities for its growing list of customers and partners in North America. The company is committed to first-class training and support to ensure its user base has a full understanding of how to best implement and manage RES Software solutions to more quickly and effectively achieve cost-savings and improve operations.
