It’s Possible to Realize Millions in ROI with an Adaptive Workspace Strategy!

Realizing a Return on Investment (ROI) is more important than ever in today’s ever changing business climate. Working closely with one customer last year we were able to show potential ROI savings of more than $6 million.

The business world changed last year. The Covid-19 pandemic saw immediate changes with office environments and users’ workspaces that continue to evolve even today. The uncertainty of business continuity and unpredictable revenue has seen many CFOs scrutinizing every dollar spent. Many organizations immediately mandated that ROI should be forecasted before investing in any new solution.

With agile virtual and cloud-based workspaces that enable working from home, it’s easy to show ROI, if workers can’t effectively work, time is lost and business comes to a complete halt. Since our founding, Liquidware has enabled our customers to quickly transform your users’ desktops to modern desktops such as those from Citrix, VMware, or Amazon. Our solutions have direct positive impacts on user and admin productivity, savings in unused software license costs, expanded hardware lifespans, and more.

Liquidware’s Adaptive Workspace Management suite, known as Liquidware Essentials, indeed helps organizations directly realize ROI in many areas. We work closely with you, using your organization’s unique data and situation, to develop an ROI estimate that will enlighten you and your staff to the money that you can be saving with the industry’s only Adaptive Workspace Management suite.  Here’s an example of the ROI that one organization agreed that they’d be able to realize:

FlexApp – 10 HUGE Innovations in App Layering

When Liquidware launched FlexApp layering in 2012, it was the most innovative layering solution seen in the market because it focused on applications instead of the whole system layering. We described the apps as “dynamic” because they’re not encumbered by the OS or OS changes. While others have become stale in their development, we’ve continued to innovate over the years. Below is a list of innovations and performance features that set FlexApp apart from the competition.

Here are 10 FlexApp layering innovations you won’t find anywhere else!

  1. Application layering with full user environment management (ProfileUnity) – delivering advanced application delivery options including context awareness, select privilege elevation, application restrictions, registry fix up, and more!
  2. Micro Isolation – no need to stack multiple applications in single layers. Instead, a single layer is created for each application, which allows for ultimate granularity in assigning apps to users, groups and machines. This approach also simplifies updating applications by allowing you to update a single package for a single app rather than dealing with cumbersome multi-app layers. Lastly, this approach provides greater success with packaging and deploying applications, as you no longer need to deal with conflicts manually.
  3. Cloud Native FlexApps – Applications can be stored natively on any major cloud (such as Microsoft Blob storage) without the expense or complications of file shares.
  4. FlexApp Cache Mode – FlexApps cache to the local session for rock-solid performance, regardless of the quality of network connections.
  5. FlexApp Cloud Apps – FlexApp includes prepackaged cloud apps so you can hit the ground running with POCs without packaging.
  6. Disaster Recovery and High Availability – FlexApp includes its own messaging fabric and replication without requiring expensive load balancers and complicated DR plans.
  7. FastPackaging™ – While other app layering solutions can take more than 45 minutes to package even a simple app, FlexApp packaging is a fast process and occurs in about the same time it takes to install the app once!
  8. PackageOnce™ – FlexApp applications work across Windows OS versions (app support required), with no need to repackage applications for OS upgrades!
  9. Session Isolation – Multi-session Windows 10, RDS, and Citrix Virtual Apps are no problem for FlexApp, users only see and use the apps they have access to, even on the same host!
  10. Three clouds! – FlexApp supports all three major cloud platforms natively, while others support only one or require file shares.
