"Our consultants are experts at complex virtualization and data center solutions and they have been involved in some of the largest deployments of these technologies," said Strohl. "We are always at the forefront, investing in new and cutting-edge technology offerings that will enable us to solve our customers' most pressing business and IT challenges.
Entisys360 does not simply add technology solutions to its portfolio for the sake of doing so. "When we engage with customers, we provide them best practices and recommendations on technology solutions that they should look at in order to get the return on investment they expect from their virtualization deployments. Today, performance and user experience monitoring is very much an integral part of the technology stack we recommend our customers look at when they embark on any of any virtualization deployment," continued Strohl. "To help our customers meet this need, we've incorporated eG Innovations solutions into our best practice recommendations for any virtualization project, including those in Citrix-based environments."
Entisys360 has been working with eG Innovations for more than five years. Joint customers include market leaders across many industries, such as eBay, PayPal, Autodesk, William Sonoma, SanDisk, Adobe, Gilead Sciences, Hitachi Data Systems, Prometheus Real Estate, Simpson Strong-Tie, and Fresno City College.
"Our customers have seen significant benefit from deploying the eG Enterprise solution from eG Innovations," said Strohl. "eG Enterprise has helped us provide complete visibility into the availability and performance of critical IT services for our customers, and some of the most common benefits of the solution include increasing both user and IT productivity; providing early and proactive alerting on issues that affect user experience; accelerating issue resolution; and, supporting the quick identification of root-cause of problems."
"Entisys360 has been our stand-out North American partner in 2016," said Jim Lange, Senior Northwest Regional Manager for eG Innovations. "Entisys360 and eG Innovations work closely together to identify opportunities to deliver operational success and maximum ROI for our joint customers and prospects. Together, we identify organizations that will benefit most from the increased user, service and system performance that eG Enterprise provides, and then help them analyze different options and determine the solution that will best contribute to success. Most importantly, the Entisys360 and eG Innovations teams work hand-in-hand to ensure that customers achieve their business goals and maximize their returns from their software investments. We are ideal partners because of this shared focus on customer success and a common consulting sales model."
As part of Entisys360's investment in eG Innovations' technology five of its lead technical experts have been trained and are actively supporting joint customers in deploying the solution. In addition to reselling and supporting eG Innovations products, Entisys360 has also been using eG Enterprise for customer health checks.
"We have seen a shift in the way customers look at performance monitoring from the time when we first started working with eG Innovations," continued Strohl. "Many are looking to begin monitoring performance of their IT services from the get-go, instead of looking at it as an afterthought. This is an approach that we strongly recommend, as we find that it saves customers a lot of time and money in the long run."
"We have also found that when virtualization deployments, including those in Citrix-based environments are done right from the very beginning, customers become more content and their deployments grow, which helps to generate additional resale and services for us," concluded Strohl.
“At Entisys360, we are firmly committed to providing our valued customers with best practices and recommendations on technology solutions that can help them achieve their desired ROI. We believe that performance management is critical to driving the success of any virtualization deployment, including those in Citrix-based environments, and this is why we have chosen to leverage eG Innovations within our portfolio of solutions.”
