iAnywhere Solutions Helps Placeware Cut Information Technology Costs

10/17/2002 - iAnywhere Solutions, a subsidiary of Sybase, announced that PlaceWare, the leading provider of web conferencing services, selected Manage Anywhere StudioTM to help control IT costs, increase worker productivity and strengthen corporate security. PlaceWare deployed Manage Anywhere Studio across its organization in less than a month and realized a complete return on the investment in only six months.

With employees distributed throughout North America and the UK, PlaceWare required a sophisticated enterprise management solution to facilitate software installation and maintenance on four hundred PCs per day. The solution also provides enhanced security for remote and mobile workers by enforcing software compliance and simplifying the frequent distribution of security upgrades. Prior to implementing Manage Anywhere Studio, PlaceWare relied on local IT staff or the employees themselves to manually implement changes a time consuming and inefficient process.

"By automating many of the administrative tasks involved in updating and maintaining a large number of PCs and laptops, our IT group can now focus on more strategic projects such as infrastructure and network upgrades and intranet development," said Jawaid Ekram, CIO at PlaceWare. "Ive looked at a lot of management solutions and Manage Anywhere Studio is the best tool Ive found for the job with an easy learning curve, tremendous flexibility and very low impact on the users."

"Many companies that are otherwise very high-tech have a dirty little secret. When applications need to be installed or updated they ship out thousands of CDs loaded with new software or else require employees to send their laptops back to the main office. Manage Anywhere Studio brings centralized enterprise management within reach for these companies through its ease-of-use and attractive pricing," said Rob Veitch, director of business development at iAnywhere Solutions.
