With SMBs taking the brunt of the economic downturn, more and more are looking for new ways to cut IT costs, enhance employee performance and improve customer satisfaction to establish steady productivity and growth over time. NoMachine NX offers a solution to meet their needs, providing a complete high-performance remote access and hosted application solution, at a price they can afford.
According to Spiceworks' annual survey of SMB tech departments, 39 percent of small and medium businesses reported budget cuts in 2009, averaging a 22 percent reduction in IT funding. Many companies are focusing on long-term IT investments that contribute directly to their bottom line, like reducing costs and boosting productivity. NX provides SMBs with a server consolidation and desktop virtualization solution to reduce their IT budgets by providing a unique and predictable all-inclusive, per-server pricing structure.
The cost-effective NX Small Business Server is designed for small to medium businesses with strict IT budgets, who require a product to provide access to small workgroups and branch departments. NoMachine's complete range of server products, tools and support options provide any environment the flexibility to grow with ease and adapt to changing business dynamics. Businesses can upgrade to NX Enterprise Server or NX Advanced Server to scale their network to match growth and support unlimited users and connections.
For example, Commerce Corporation, the leading distributor for manufacturers in the lawn and garden industry, chose NoMachine NX as a cost-effective remote access solution for their geographically dispersed sales reps. NX enabled their business expansion into a premier supplier of exclusive products and value-added services.
Commerce's application developer, Steve Romanow said, “NoMachine has been flexible enough to provide numerous implementation choices. As we expand our business, I am confident that NoMachine will continue to provide us with the most cost-effective, well managed, remote access, anywhere we need it, through their amazing NX technology."
Keeping travel and energy costs to a minimum are also essential ways to reduce spending for many SMBs. These cost-cutting initiatives become reality with NX, which allows employees to access centralized office-based applications from home or other remote locations, and at the same time enhance work force productivity. Its fast performance over any network guarantees maximized end user experience, and the NX Client can transform any device into a thin client, ready for remotely accessing hosted desktops on the office server.
According to a report from Forrester Research which surveyed businesses during Q2 of this year, SMBs are still depending on outsourcing IT solutions and consulting services to improve their bottom lines and provide specialized skills and knowledge, strategic tactics, a depth of experience and access to the most current technologies. NoMachine has a long list of worldwide trusted partners who understand the needs of SMBs in their industry and can deliver value-rich consulting services finely-tuned to these smaller niche companies.
Small local newspapers turn to Software Consulting Services (SCS), a valued NoMachine partner, to provide remote access to media and publishing applications on Linux-based servers via NX. They depend on SCS for a trusted solution, personalized training and communication, and a deeper understanding of the software they are using.
Founder and co-owner of SCS, Martha Cichelli said, “We include NX exclusively in all of our proposals for the Linux Server because we want to offer our customers the best solution possible.”
Software administrator for Sun Media, John Mosley said, “With Layout-8000 from SCS and NoMachine NX, everything is at our fingertips, no matter what our location, creating an easily manageable network. NoMachine NX's seamless training and setup makes it easy to use and make adjustments along the way as well.”
With all of these issues gaining importance and affecting where SMBs are headed for the future, the need for an affordable, yet high-performance hosted desktop and application delivery solution continues to grow. NoMachine NX meets the needs of these environments providing enterprise-class performance, features and tools along with small business-class flexibility and price.
