The Challenge: Simple, reliable virtualization infrastructure to publish construction software

AccuBuild needed a virtualization environment to deliver its integrated construction business-management system to its customers’ employees, who used Mac® and Windows desktop devices to access the software.

The ISV wanted to deploy a straightforward virtualization framework that supported cloud service Rackspace. Additionally, the ISV had deployed virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) through Microsoft Hyper-V—another component the virtualization solution had to support. As a result, the company went on the market to find a virtualization solution that would provide reliable connections, speed, and customer experience while supporting the cloud-based IT infrastructure.

The Solution: Parallels RAS offers straightforward remote application publishing

After exploring options, AccuBuild deployed the comprehensive, affordable application publishing solution Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS). With Parallels RAS, the ISV was able to provide easy-to-use, secure virtual application to its customers’ employees working on PC and Mac desktop computers.

Parallels RAS enabled AccuBuild to deliver customized construction-management software to its customers’ devices. Seamless application virtualization provided by Parallels RAS allowed AccuBuild employees to access resources and improve efficiency in the workplace.

Parallels RAS provided an affordable, user-friendly application publishing solution that immediately benefited employees by allowing them to be more mobile and flexible in how they performed their duties. The IT staff also benefited through straightforward implementation and management.

The Benefits: Easy-to-implement, user-friendly application publishing

The AccuBuild IT team only needed to run a single installation process that centralized the entire infrastructure in one easy-to-use dashboard interface. This created savings for the ISV company, because the team didn’t need to contract a virtualization expert to get the virtual application publishing infrastructure up and running. Using a simple wizard, the cloud servers and general contractor application publishing components were set up without issues or complexity.
