Speaking to CXOtoday, B. Ramesh, deputy manager-IT, Gestetner India Ltd, said, “We needed a cost-effective centralized administration solution to successfully run all our applications in the local as well as wide-area network environments. This led us to explore and implement the Citrix MetaFrame presentation server.”

He further revealed that the company has succeeded in integrating its ERP and other applications with the Citrix MetaFrame presentation server. With its inherent bandwidth management feature, Citrix solution has helped the company to considerably reduce its bandwidth costs even while running a high-end application like ERP.

Ramesh added, “Now it’s possible for us to deploy applications securely with less bandwidth at reduced communication costs. The data transmission speeds have also improved significantly.’

The application and network performance remains extremely good even on low-end client machines.

Also the systems uptime levels are always more than 99%,” concluded Ramesh.
