“ISL Online is a great remote support and service tool for small businesses with just a few people up to Fortune 500 companies with massive helpdesk organizations. It’s affordable and it just works." - Luke Walling, Managing Director, ISL Online USA

ISL Online, creators of remote support, access and helpdesk software used by IT departments, technology service providers and helpdesks in over 100 countries, has formally opened operations in North America. The 16-year-old company, headquarted in Slovenia, is a pioneer in the remote desktop industry, providing software that allows users to access and support computers and mobile devices from afar. Currently, ISL Online is sold through a network of authorized partners in Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America, but opening a location in the largest market in the world, North America, was a long-time goal for CEO, Jure Pompe.

“Opening a location in North America has been a company goal since we launched our first product in 2003. We are excited to have a team on the ground in North Carolina that will serve businesses and schools in the US and Canada,” said Pompe.

And ISL intends to disrupt the remote desktop space.

“The way we’ve licensed the product enables IT professionals to deploy ISL to every device they manage, anywhere in the world, for one low price. Plus, we’re the only company that includes helpdesk-centric live chat functionality for free with every license purchase,” Pompe continued.

“ISL Online is a great remote support and service tool for small businesses with just a few people up to Fortune 500 companies with massive helpdesk organizations. It’s affordable and it just works. We knew that if we were serious about making a play in North America, we had to have a presence in-market.” Walling said.

To do this, the company formed a team in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, where Walling is based, comprised of other software industry veterans in the fall of 2016. Since then, the team has been testing the market and learning how to position ISL Online against industry leaders.    

“We learned quickly that we needed to offer more flexible subscription options and even change the way we talk about the product,” Walling said. “We needed to package the software in a way that makes sense in this competitive market.”

To this end, ISL Online offers a variety of subscription models and hosting options, including cloud and self-hosted platforms, to provide solutions for businesses of all sizes.

“We’re the only remote desktop provider in the market who offers a plan that allows unlimited installs and unlimited concurrent sessions,” said Pompe. “This unique offering makes us attractive especially to large companies or helpdesk organizations that demand flexibility.”

To celebrate their North American launch, ISL is offering special pricing for organizations who have recently experienced a price increase from their existing remote desktop provider. To learn more about this, please contact sales(at)islonlineusa(dot)com or call 877-475-6654.
