    8. 8. What we hear from training centers:1. “We need to do more with less.”2. “We spend too much time managing technology.”3. “We explored thin clients, but were frustratedbecause:a) Performance is poor (particularly multi-media);b) We need a unique IP address for exams;c) They are too expensive (often more than PCs).”
    9. 9. The GreenBridge Computing Mission• Our mission is to provide the highest qualitydigital access at a fraction of the cost.• We help schools cut costs while expandingtechnology access and enabling 21st century skillsdevelopment.• We provide unsurpassed performance and thelowest cost because we eliminate the need forthin clients.
    10. 10. Value PropositionOpportunity: Turn a singe PC into 10+workstations. Each user has theirown monitor, mouse, and keyboard,each with an independent Windowscomputing experience – at a fractionof the costBenefits:• 50% hardware savings• 90% IT maintenance savings• 80% energy savingsHOSTCOMPUTERProblem: training centers struggle torefresh & manage technology
