"Vir2us customers boast of cost reductions of up to 70% ..."
San Francisco, California (PRWEB) August 28, 2013
Over 60% of companies have implemented or are planning some implementation of BYOD. The reasons for this trend are improved mobility, communication and creativity and innovation, according to CIO Magazine(1Aug2013) which recently published the results of a survey of over 500 companies about their BYOD plans and experience. California based Vir2us is realizing success with IT service providers and companies that are looking to BYOD strategies and outsourcing to solve the rising cost and complexities of IT. The company’s Genesis product line automates IT services for virtually all brands and models of computers and can even allow corporate users to self-service their computers. Vir2us boasts reductions of up to 70% in IT service costs, and a more than 10X improvement in service delivery times. “Genesis was designed to meet the needs of corporate computer users. Customers have been delighted with the speed, efficiency and comprehensiveness of the services,” said Anthony More, Vir2us Chief Technology Officer. “User satisfaction with corporate IT services has been elusive in many firms. BYOD is bringing this issue into sharp focus.”
Not surprisingly, the CIO Magazine survey highlights some significant challenges BYOD is creating for IT managers whose corporate culture has often favored tight controls over user flexibility. Making the transition from a few models of computer systems to perhaps hundreds of different devices is causing many internal IT departments to become overwhelmed and seemingly unresponsive to demands of the business. This comes at a time when failing cyber security strategies are only exacerbated by the introduction of a seemingly unlimited set of variables.
“BYOD has also exposed internal IT processes that are largely manual and people dependent, which begs for the level of automation and self-service that Vir2us is able to provide,” said More. “Customers who have implemented Vir2us automation services are telling us that they can’t imagine how they ever delivered computer services without us.”
