Share Article

CALGARY, Alberta, May 11th, 2005 Â? desktopsites Inc. (Â?desktopsitesÂ?), a rapidly emerging leader in access infrastructure serverware for the small and mid-size business (Â?SMBÂ?) market, is pleased to announce it will be deploying Konect v5.1 with Mobius Marine. Mobius Marine is a leading retailer of marine sporting goods and the exclusive dealer of Chaparral Boats in Western Canada.

“We have been searching for a secure and inexpensive way to share our corporate software with each of our retail operations for years,” said Jeff Bezzeg, an owner and primary shareholder in Mobius Marine. “All of the other solutions we have considered have either been too expensive or too limited in their functionality to really benefit our business. When we researched Konect we thought it was too good to be true but Alex and the desktopsites team have proven that this technology is everything they said it would be and more.”

“With retail operations in different geographies, small companies like Mobius Marine need a flexible, secure and easily implemented solution for connecting their offices, employees and corporate information,” said Alex Bethlehem, President and CEO of desktopsites. “We are pleased to provide Konect as a solution to Mobius’ needs. Even though Mobius is a small business, its challenges are no different than larger enterprises. The differences lie in smaller IT budgets and the ability to support an extensive but necessary IT infrastructure. In these types of scenarios, Konect demonstrates true value. With its low cost and simple deployment, Konect provides great value to small businesses looking for better ways to deal with the distance and mobility challenges of today’s economy.”

Konect is a serverware solution empowering small and mid-size businesses to centrally manage and deploy networked resources to employees anytime, anywhere on most devices. Konect seamlessly integrates and delivers server-based applications, networked files, and web services to employee computers. These resources are delivered over standard Internet protocols and presented through a server-based computing toolbar that integrates into existing computer desktops.
