Selling cloud services to SMBs

486

Published on

Cloud services are a reality for SMBs and they have specific needs when accessing the cloud. SMBs want to control their workspace, choose which applications to use; bring their own device (BYOD) and they require technology that enable their staff to work anywhere at any time.
The SMB working environment is becoming more productive and this has brought the need for improvements to flexibility, mobility and usability; SMBs are looking for enrichment of their cloud experience and prefer to purchase cloud applications from a single trusted vendor.
Currently cloud control panels are difficult to manage and lack focus on the end-user, not providing an enhanced user experience. These requirements are met with cloud applications and LuxCloud has the perfect solution to provision these services, automated and fast. When it comes to consuming cloud applications LuxCloud now has a unique product: Gateway4Cloud.
