Announcing the launch of Software2 GmbH, a new AppsAnywhere presence in Europe

PRESS RELEASE
Leeds, Yorkshire, United Kingdom - November 9, 2017


Software2 broaden their horizons with a new presence in Germany, to offer AppsAnywhere virtualization technology to central Europe.

As of October 18th Software2 is expanding their services into Europe as Software2 GmbH. The new European arm is bringing AppsAnywhere, the company’s market-leading Virtualization and Application Delivery solution, to the higher education markets across Germany, Switzerland and Austria.

With the majority of universities in the UK and many more in North America, Spain, Scandinavia and the Benelux region already using the company’s proprietary technology, AppsAnywhere, Software2 is trusted and loved by IT professionals and students across the world of higher education.

Edward Jansen van Rensburg, Managing Director of Software2 GmbH, has said: “Having worked in the higher education technology sector for many years, the problems faced are universal; how does my university get 100% of its apps to students on any device, at any time and wherever they are? Our solution, AppsAnywhere, is the perfect tool for combining the most-commonly used software delivery technologies, and has already shown incredible results in the UK. I believe universities across Europe will hugely benefit from our technology just the same.”

Software2 GmbH will be working with higher education institutions to improve how software is delivered, in a way that the 21st century student expects from their learning experience. With an existing user base of 1.5 million worldwide, AppsAnywhere is well tried and tested. Mr Jansen van Rensburg continues: “With our solution, software applications are cleverly virtualized and delivered to end-users. There’s no other technology capable of bringing 100% of apps to students”. AppsAnywhere supports more than 12 leading delivery technologies, from the likes of Microsoft, VMware and Parallels.

Tony Austwick, Software2 CEO, comments: “AppsAnywhere is now the de facto choice for universities looking for the best virtualization solution. We’ve seen an increased demand recently from central Europe and the logical choice is to cement this growth with a new company in the heart of the region. Edward is the ideal man to take our existing solutions, including AppsAnywhere, to universities and colleges looking to use virtualization to enable BYOD and improve the student experience.”
