ORLANDO, Fla. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Today at Citrix Summit™, Atea was announced as the winner of the company’s first annual Citrix® Innovation Award for Partners in the Mid-market Solutions category, designed to honor organizations that are driving innovation and delivering business value for their customers. Atea Denmark has implemented a VDI solution for BRF Kredit that uses Citrix technology to increase employee productivity and reduce IT management costs.
Atea Denmark, a Platinum Citrix Solution Advisor, won recognition for a virtual desktop solution provided to BRF Kredit, an independent mortgage credit institution. This virtual desktop solution comprised of XenDesktop®, NetScaler®, Microsoft App-V and Hyper-V was implemented to provide users with a new, Windows 7 virtualized workspace. With this solution, employee productivity increased dramatically by reducing log-in times by 90 percent. BRF Kredit was also able to realize significant IT savings by reducing the PC refresh rate and streamlining management.
“Citrix is embarking on a journey to grow multi-product customers, expand customer relationships and build partner engagement,” said Tom Flink, vice president of Channels and Market Development Sales, Citrix. “We are proud to recognize Atea because they are delivering real business value to their customers including BRF Kredit. It’s with partners like Atea that we will continue to grow and provide the kinds of solutions that our customers require.”
The Citrix Innovation Award for Partners Program seeks to inspire Citrix partners, prospects and their customers to think differently about IT: as a key strategic component to enable business and organizational success, grow market share or compete beyond the industry norm.
