Share Article

Increased demand for secure remote help desk technology supports a 28 percent sales increase this quarter.

The value that Bomgar provides is the ability to improve call center efficiencies and deliver quality customer support, while drastically cutting costs.

Despite the widespread economic challenges the IT market faces today, Bomgar Corporation announced a 28 percent growth rate in Q1 of 2009 compared to the same quarter in 2008. This growth validates Bomgar's focus to deliver appliance-based remote support software that significantly improves IT support productivity and addresses enterprise security and compliance concerns. Several of the larger deals this quarter were in the financial, healthcare and education sectors with customer wins such as BNP Paribus, National Naval Medical Center and Carson City School District.

"IT support operations need technologies that enable the organization to optimize existing resources and achieve higher efficiency gains. With IT spend and workforce cutbacks on the rise, 2009 IT budgets are restricted to those projects that can show an immediate ROI," said Joel Bomgar, CEO and founder of Bomgar Corporation. "The value that Bomgar provides is the ability to improve call center efficiencies and deliver quality customer support, while drastically cutting costs."

A recent IDC report (1) identified the help desk among three key areas in the enterprise IT department which should be investigated for their ability to realize immediate cost avoidance or savings: "Advancements in technology and increased customer acceptance are enabling increased deployments of automated support and remote monitoring, which can help support providers deliver higher-quality support by focusing resources in a more targeted fashion," states Matt Healey, IDC Analyst. "Furthermore, this investment, allows enterprises to effectively optimize the size and responsibilities of their help desks that can result in immediate cost savings."

Bomgar is uniquely positioned in the remote support marketplace with its secure appliance-based help desk platform that minimizes the overall cost of IT support. Its flagship product, the Bomgar Box™, allows IT professionals to securely access multiple devices and platforms (i.e. Windows, Mac, Linux, Windows Mobile and BlackBerry) to be in more places and on more systems than possible with on-site or phone-only support. Typically customer ROI cycles are seen within 3-6 months.

With Bomgar, support representatives can view an end user screen and control the desktop remotely to perform immediate troubleshooting. Its robust platform boasts advanced logging and reporting features designed to ensure enterprise security and compliance. Bomgar also offers out-of-box integration with the top service desk management and trouble ticketing solutions, including BMC Remedy and HP Service Center and Service Manager.
