    • A leading healthcare provider with a nationwide footprint that previously faced performance issues affecting doctors’ time and patient care.
    • An engineering firm with 1,600 users that sought a solution to the problem of expensive GPU work stations and the difficulty of collaborating across geographies on large design files.

Amitabh Sinha, CEO and co-founder of Workspot, said: “According to industry analysts, 50 percent of new virtual desktop infrastructure users will be deployed on desktop-as-a-service platforms by 2019. Workspot solutions allow IT to choose whether they want to deploy their apps and desktops on-premises, in the cloud or both – unlike any other solution out there. We’re continuing to innovate and build on our momentum delivering turnkey VDI solutions in a fraction of the time and cost of legacy VDI 1.0 solutions.”

Tom Merkle, director of information technology, Houston Eye, said: “We’re the largest ophthalmology practice in the nation and before implementing Workspot, our doctors were losing about 30 or 40 minutes of productivity a day. With Workspot’s solutions, we’re now able to instantly deliver our new EMR apps to exam rooms in more than 25 locations. We’re saving 30 to 60 minutes per day of wasted time and enhancing the patient experience.”
