- Three million seats of Workspace Management solutions rolled out - Investment in IT usage analytics pays off
During the last fiscal year, Centrix Software has established itself as the leading Workspace Management provider, and continues to build the company through a record breaking 400 per cent revenue growth, major new contracts in the public sector and strategic partnerships within the IT industry.
Over the last 12 months Centrix Software has more than doubled its number of customers as usage becomes recognised as a unique and compelling value generator. The demand for workspace analytics, profiling and next generation workspace delivery platforms have all contributed to generating this outstanding growth. The cloud-based SaaS platform enables customers, including Salford NHS Foundation Trust, to go live within hours of contract signature, accelerating ease and time to value even further.
Expansion in Germany, with key customer wins supported by partner Revacom, and take up of Workspace Management products by global systems integrators, such as BT Engage, and their customers, fuels rapid adoption across organisations with tens of thousands of devices in use.
Since the launch of WorkSpace iQ™, Centrix Software’s workspace profiling and analytics solution, and WorkSpace Universal, its end-user workspace portal which enables a single point of access and enterprise app store to all corporate applications regardless of device, they have been rolled out to over three million seats. Customers include FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies, plus major government institutions.
Centrix Software’s most recent launch, in June 2013, has been the Usage Intelligence Management Pack™, which enhances Microsoft® System Center 2012 Configuration Manager with in-depth usage analytics from Centrix Software’s WorkSpace iQ™. Detailed usage analytics for all applications and devices are now available directly in Configuration Manager, including software applications not currently under Configuration Manager management. Customers can now fully automate the allocation of application self-service, provisioning and de-provisioning by tracking, managing and removing unnecessary applications and therefore costs directly linked to employees’ actual usage.
Furthermore, to support its ongoing growth, the company continues to increase investment and attract major talent in marketing, product development and engineering, with the hiring of new department heads; Marketing Director Marina Stedman, Head of Services and Support David Follant and Head of Engineering Steve Coates.
“As the CIO’s strategic partner for WorkSpace Management within many global, national and public sector organisations, Centrix Software is at a very exciting stage of its development. Over the last 12 months we’ve welcomed some fantastic customers to our company who have saved millions of pounds by finding out which software applications their employees are really using – typically only one out of every five. I’m proud to be able to say we’ve developed software that does what no-one else has been able to do - prove who uses what, how often, for how long, from where, and how many applications are being consumed. With the increasing drive towards cloud computing and BYOD, as well as the imminent need to migrate from Microsoft® Windows XP, making decisions about application delivery is even more complex – and vital. Having access to accurate usage information is the only way forward.” said Lisa Hammond, CEO at Centrix Software.
She continued: “At Centrix Software we take great pride in our people with each and every one a specialist who makes a key contribution to current and future success. Marina, David and Steve have been significant additions to our management team, and we will continue our search for dynamic individuals to join the company over the next six months, with particular emphasis on our engineering team to help us to continue to create innovative, market leading solutions that customers want.”
Looking ahead to the next 12 months, Centrix Software is planning to double the size of its engineering team, in support of its product road map.
