As we shared last week, Managed Workplace 9.2 is now globally available to our channel partners and offers our slickest remote management and monitoring (RMM) solution to date. Now with premium remote control integrated directly into our RMM platform at no extra cost, we’re making it easier than ever for our MSP partners to provide remote IT management services to their business customers.
The new platform is also catching press attention and our AVG execs have been busy sharing the highlights with tech and channel media reporters at ChannelBuzz, Channel Insider, ChanelLine, CRN UK, CRN U.S., Lanline.de, and MSP Mentor.
More interviews are scheduled across our markets over the next few weeks. The response has already been overwhelmingly positive, with press coverage describing our updated platform as ‘game-changing’ and also touting the new premium remote control, backup disaster and recovery, and Mac support features.
As with Managed Workplace 9.1, the development process was driven in large part from the input of hundreds of our partners around the world. We want to ensure that our products meet their evolving needs and we are proud to say that our latest version of the platform does just that.
In developing 9.2 and integrating additional features, we continue to partner with the best in the industry. Partners such as ISL Online, a Slovenian company with more than 200,000 customers in more than 100 countries helped us integrate premium remote control seamlessly into our platform. Our Backup and Disaster Recovery partner Infrascale is also a proven leader, recently named a Gartner Cool Vendor as ‘innovative, impactful and intriguing.’
The value of strategic partnerships like these can clearly be seen in the reaction to the end product. Initial feedback from our channel partners has been fantastic. Many have said using the updated platform will be a ‘no brainer’ for them. Some of our partners have already previewed the updated platform, with Advanced Technology Services (USA) providing feedback that “it works great on both Macs and PCs, features a new user interface that instantly shows all activity, and also enables us to seamlessly view user sessions.”
We recognize that our channel partners need IT simplicity and efficiency. The updates we have made to Managed Workplace 9.2 show our ongoing commitment to putting partners first.
We are listening and appreciate your feedback.
