Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 7, 2009
Zlago, a leading provider of hosted Windows desktops to businesses and the channel partners who serve them, today announced the launch of two new service offering bundles. Delivered as a service through the web, Zlago Small Business Starter and Zlago Small Business Complete bring critical core technologies to small businesses in one vendor relationship without the hassle, time and costs of onsite deployments, maintenance and in-house support. The new products offer Microsoft Windows desktops with Office Professional, Exchange email, SharePoint collaboration, security, back-up, a Website, an optional phone system with PBX and 24x7 support for a low monthly fee that is typically over 70% less than what a business pays for lesser solutions today.
"With Zlago, we have experienced a remarkable 80% cost reduction," said Joshua Mondschein, CEO of Mondschein Associates, Inc. a New York City-based insurance, employee benefits & pensions brokerage and payroll/benefits administration company. "By using Zlago Hosted Windows Desktops and the other Zlago services, we have essentially eliminated and replaced our in-house hardware and infrastructure with a purely hosted environment. It has provided great peace of mind and has significantly increased productivity, availability, security and service quality."
Zlago provides hosted Windows desktops and all core IT services that businesses need, including email, phone, web, back-up, security, business applications, wireless integration and collaboration. Hosted desktops, typically an IT service that only the largest companies deploy, remove the cost and burden of managing multiple physical desktops. Customers have zero administration, anywhere-access, and 24/7 support for issues and can add applications and users instantly. Zlago Hosted Windows Desktops allow customers to never again worry about managing their PCs, software licenses, security, data backup, upgrades, PC crashes and other problems.
"We selected Zlago to help simplify the IT operations of our portfolio companies and to drive down costs," said Andrey Zarur, managing partner at Kodiak Venture Partners, a Boston-based investment company. "One of our newest portfolio companies, GreenLight, chose Zlago to quickly and cost efficiently get their IT infrastructure built to a level comparable to much more expensive solutions. We want our companies to be smart with managing business costs, and to focus more on building their business for competitive advantage as opposed to building and managing their IT infrastructure."
Key features of the new Zlago bundles include:
- Hosted Windows Desktops with Microsoft Office Professional and More
- Phone System with Fully Featured PBX
- Exchange Email Accounts with Blackberry and iPhone
- SharePoint Collaboration
- Highly Secure, Fully Managed and Backed up
- 24x7 Professional Support
"Businesses are always looking to get more value out of their IT investments, particularly in this economy," said Zlago CEO, Michael Gold. "The Zlago Hosted Windows Desktop solution bundles we're announcing today directly address the need for cost savings and boost employee productivity while reducing the resources required to manage IT."
Zlago's official partners represent some of the world's leading technology companies including Microsoft, Intel, Wyse and Cisco. Additionally, Zlago works with channel partners - IT VARs, solution providers, IT consultants, and industry experts - to further package and deliver cost effective and complete hosted desktop-based IT solutions to businesses. The company's leadership team brings experience from Qwest, Microsoft, Parallels and AT&T.
