IGEL Scores with Two Major Industry Awards for Product Innovation
Sportscasters like to talk about bench depth. Certainly the Warriors and Cavs prove their might. At IGEL we have tons of bench depth: our tech wizards coming up with new ideas like the UD Pocket micro-client. Our people in the field giving 100% customer support. No fouls here! Our NBA-level team spirit with solution providers and partners around the globe. And our endpoint security and optimization solutions which are NBA-playoff quality!
Tonight the Golden State Warriors have a chance to make history: with a win, they will tally 16 straight playoff game wins, for the first perfect postseason in NBA history!
As Steph and LeBron fight it out on the court, we’re already winning with two prestigious awards: the MedTech Breakthrough award for “Best Hospital Technology Implementation” as a result of our Citrix VDI deployment for the University of North Carolina (UNC) Health Care system, and the People’s Choice Stevie Award for our UD Pocket micro-client.
UNC Health Care is a big win for IGEL. Not on the court, but in the corridors of IT offices, we won a ‘bake-off’ between IGEL and other thin-client solutions that couldn’t deliver the exceptional, consistent performance and reliability IGEL does with its Universal Desktop Converter (UDC) software. We could convert their legacy hardware, including under-performing endpoints from other vendors, into IGEL-OS powered endpoints. IT also loved our Universal Management Suite (UMS), a huge time saver which enables them to manage tons of devices from a simple, easy to use console. IGEL came to UNC Health Care with a pro-level game and we won!
IGEL UD Pocket is the People’s Choice!
Steph and LeBron’s fans are legion. IGEL is collecting its own fan base now with our UD Pocket micro client which has been amazing partners, customers (and the competition) since it became available in December. Now, we have an ‘official’ thumbs up from the stands! We are the Stevie Award’s People’s Choice in the “Favorite New Computer Hardware Product” category. The competition, part of the American Business Awards, drew more than 38,000 votes, in 55 categories, from industry professionals and the public
For those who haven’t experienced it yet, the IGEL UD Pocket, at just $169 each, is really a no-brainer. Remote and mobile workers can plug it into any x86 client machine, access the IT-controlled network, and IT can sleep better at night knowing UD Pocket slows down the temptation to use rogue devices that can threaten the network. It also integrates with IGEL UMS so IT can manage this like all our endpoint solutions.
IGEL’s Bench Simply Rocks!
Enjoy the NBA finals. And whether Steph or LeBron take home the win, we celebrate their attitude, one we live at IGEL. Work hard for the win, every day, and it does pay off!
