Telecommunications firm uses Evolve IP’s virtual desktop and virtual server technologies to access its data anywhere, anytime, on any deviceWAYNE, Pa.– February 27, 2013 – Evolve IP, The Cloud Services Company™, today announced Grudi Associates is now using Evolve IP’s Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) and award-winning virtual private cloud, vServer. Using Evolve IP’s VDI, Grudi Associates’ employees can easily and securely access all of its business applications using multiple devices (tablets, laptops, smartphones, PCs) from any Internet connection. As a result, the company has been able to create a fully mobile workforce that now includes several remote offices, as well as a much larger sales force on the road. In addition, virtualizing its infrastructure (IaaS) with Evolve IP’s vServer has provided Grudi Associates with a tested business continuity and disaster recovery platform that also eliminates on-site management, maintenance, and capital expense.“Before we moved to the cloud with Evolve IP, our staff had to be directly connected to our internal servers to access the information they needed to serve our customers,” says Walt Grudi, President of Grudi Associates. “That meant they had to be physically in our building. Now, since we’ve moved to the cloud with Evolve IP, all they need is a decent Internet connection, and they can log in from an airport, restaurant, home office, hotel room, tradeshow, or wherever. They get the full desktop experience just as if they were sitting in our main office. Better still, because it’s all hosted in the cloud, we don’t have to worry about our business continuity. In fact, when Hurricane Sandy hit our area, our systems didn’t miss a beat.”“We’re very pleased that Grudi Associates, a progressive and very knowledgeable telecommunications firm, selected Evolve IP for its virtual servers and desktops,” said Tim Allen, Chief Sales Officer for Evolve IP. “As this company is demonstrating day-in and day-out, virtual desktops are no longer a theoretical technology; they are successfully deployed and helping companies be more productive while saving money.” ABOUT EVOLVE IP Evolve IP is The Cloud Services Company™.
