IGEL Expands Operations to the United Kingdom

IGEL Technology continues to mark its global presence by announcing a significant presence based in Reading, UK. The new organization has an established team from the industry with more than 20 years of experience in the server based computing industry.

Simon Richards was named General Manager of IGEL Technology Ltd. Joining Mr. Richards are Andy Boyle, Enterprise Sales Manager, and Matthew Evans, PreSales Engineer.

"We are delighted with the challenge and opportunity represented by IGEL. The UK is the biggest thin client market in Europe and is particularly demanding with its complex enterprise and vertical market requirements. IGEL is known for its innovative and customizable solutions with strong customer oriented services and this is what customers are looking for." said Mr. Richards.

The new team will begin to build and attract channel partners by implementing the recently announced "GET IGEL" partner programme. This is one of the most comprehensive partner programs in the industry.

Mr Richards continues, "Channel partners need a real value added program to deliver customer specific solutions. "GET IGEL" gives them the ability to deliver service and support to customers quickly and profitably".

Heiko Gloge, Managing Director of IGEL Technology, comments: "We are excited to be capturing more and more marketshare and if the industry analysts' forecasts are correct, the best times are still to come. Server based computing is attractive for small to medium-sized businesses as well as larger enterprises across all sectors of industry. This is hardly surprising when you see that IGEL Thin Clients result in savings of up to 70% in administration and support costs. With a strategic focus on the UK market and the foundation of the local office, we are positioned for a long-term growth in this important market."
