Press release


Awingu, a developer of online workspace aggregator software, today announced an alliance with ALSO to expand its web-based mobility solution into the Netherlands reseller channel. Awingu software aggregates all company files and applications to one, secure online workspace that is accessed using any device with an HTML5 browser. Awingu software works out-of-the-box and does not require any client software to be installed on the device itself.

This agreement extends the ALSO relationship that was established last year with Awingu and will allow both perpetual and subscription-based Awingu licensing to be distributed in the Netherlands channel. ALSO, the European B2B marketplace, offers services at all levels of the ICT value chain from a single source and currently serves 15 European countries. The company bundles logistics services, financial services, supply services, solution services, digital services, and IT services together into individual service packages.

“We are pleased to support Awingu, which uses the power of the latest web technology to mobilize all company applications regardless of where they physically reside, whether in the cloud or on premise,” says Harald Nuij, Chief Customer Officer, ALSO Netherlands. “Awingu has the advantage of working with any cloud services and pairs perfectly with our broad portfolio of advanced mobility solutions.”

Walter Van Uytven, Awingu CEO, adds, “I’m excited about this relationship and joint go-to-market with ALSO. Our value proposition will enable greater adoption and channel awareness for our powerful yet simple mobility solution that is revolutionizing how businesses access their data remotely. Teaming up also allows us to leverage the extensive reach of ALSO and the added value of experienced sales and marketing teams across the Netherlands.”

Today’s office environment typically combines SaaS, Web, Windows Server, Windows Desktop and older legacy applications. With Awingu, all your office applications can run on a server using RDP without any need to reprogram. This means big cost savings for businesses since they don’t need to change a thing to their current IT, and within a matter of hours, all company applications can be securely accessed from one online workspace using any device.
