91% of students expect their university to provide an "app store" to access university software. So, in collaboration with our customers we've developed AppsAnywhere...

AppsAnywhere is a beautiful web interface that gives students access to all the software they need, from a familiar and customizable app store-style portal. It gives university or college IT a way to deliver 100% of their software from one place, whatever the device, including Windows, Mac and Chromebooks.

Apps. Anywhere. Deploy apps to students anywhere, including BYOD.

Software on demand, anywhere.

We've reinvented the way students access apps. By integrating with leading application delivery technologies, AppsAnywhere enables access to software wherever and whenever, on any device, on and off campus. Students can even access apps on their own laptop, from a customizable 'app store'. Students no longer have to follow apps, now the apps follow them.

Virtualize and Deliver any Windows app with Cloudpaging and AppsAnywhere

Deliver 100% of your apps.

No one method of delivering apps is the best. That's why we support a variety of software delivery methods, including Cloudpaging, SCCM and App-V. That means you can deliver ANY app and deploy them all through AppsAnywhere, our beautiful app store-like portal. And yes, that includes 'tricky' Windows apps like SPSS, SAS, NVivo, MATLAB and AutoCAD!

Full license control over virtualized applications with AppsAnywhere Admin

Full control over software licenses.

Admins can keep track of exactly how many licences are being used at any given time, and redistribute them where necessary. By maintaining a central pool of licences and allowing users to take from the pool wherever they are, as and when they need them, resources can be maximized and vast amounts of money saved.

Apps virtualized and delivered through AppsAnywhere run and perform as if they were locally installed!

Local performance, warp speed.

AppsAnywhere integrates with a variety of delivery methods, including Cloudpaging. Unlike desktop virtualization (VDI), apps virtualized using Cloudpaging run at the same speed as if they were fully installed on the end-user's computer. That means you can deliver graphics-intensive software without needing an expensive backend infrastructure to support it!

Reduce your image size and bloat. Massively.

By virtualizing apps with Cloudpaging and delivering them with AppsAnywhere, our customers have reduced their image size by 75%. That means huge time savings for IT, quicker repair of PCs and faster re-image times. And it's easy to make changes to the image (e.g. app upgrades) in the middle of the academic year, too!

Massively reduce your image size by taking apps out of the image

Slash ongoing VDI costs.

AppsAnywhere can be used alongside an existing virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). By doing so you can take the apps out of the VDI image and deliver them separately, so they run on the local machine. That means your apps run more smoothly, you save huge amounts on expensive VDI equipment, and your students' experience is awesome.
