cellent to offer 1E’s IT efficiency solutions to customers
Fellbach/London, 05 November 2014: 1E, the global leader in IT efficiency software, and IT service provider cellent today announced a new partnership for activities in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Under the terms of the agreement, cellent will be able to offer its customers 1E’s product suite of IT operations management tools for Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), designed to deliver cost savings and simplify the management of IT environments.
The focus for cellent’s go-to-market offering in the first phase of the new partnership will be Nomad, which provides a cost effective, low-touch method for IT staff to efficiently manage software deployment. Seamlessly integrating with SCCM, Nomad’s automated software deployment process dramatically decreases the cost of distributing system management content, from software and patches to full Windows migration images.
cellent’s customers will also benefit from the following 1E solutions:
NightWatchman: provides the enterprise with total control over the entire PC estate, 24 hours a day, slashing power consumption, spend and carbon footprint while actively improving PC health. Automated control of PC power management saves individual enterprises millions in energy bills per year while actively improving security and extending the lifespan of the entire PC estate.
AppClarity: provides a precise, straightforward view of the software installed and active across the enterprise, empowering organizations by delivering total visibility into their software estate. Automated processes measure application usage, reclaim unused or prohibited software and allow licenses to be redeployed as needed, turning the tables in favor of the customer in vendor audits, software compliance and license negotiation.
Shooping: is the app store for the enterprise that combines the on-demand user experience of consumer devices with the control, integration and automation needs of corporate IT. Scaling from one seat to hundreds of thousands, Shopping enables IT departments to automate software delivery to users in any location.
“cellent has a wealth of experience in delivering IT solutions and this partnership offers 1E the ideal route to grow its presence in the German market with a respected company whose clients regard as a trusted advisor. From the start, the cultural fit between cellent and 1E was clear and the teams have quickly established the close working relationship that will be critical for a mutually beneficial partnership,” comments Rosario Perri, Senior Director, Worldwide Channel and Alliances at 1E.
Providing IT infrastructure concepts for companies from various sectors since more than twenty years, cellent is excited to now offer its customers “Green IT” and cost-saving Microsoft add-ons from 1E.
