Enable Remote Access to Your Applications

Parallels® Remote Application Server (RAS) empowers ISVs to enable remote access to their software from any cloud, instantly.

Desktop applications are transformed into full-fledged mobile and web apps without interrupting your software development cycle. In addition, you can access these applications from any device and platform.

Guided Shift to SaaS

For ISVs, transitioning from packaged software to Software as a Service (SaaS) means changing the business model and facing new challenges.

The Parallels team of experts has supported many ISVs through this transition. We work closely with you to build a personalized strategy and scale-out plan while creating an optimal IT architecture and reducing total cost of ownership (TCO).

Reduce Your R&D Costs

Taking your applications to the cloud traditionally means investing in research and development (R&D) to rewrite them to match different platforms.

Make your Windows applications portable to any operating system instantly. Accelerate the time-to-market of your software, and cut down the cost for rewriting your code to match different OS requirements.

Create a Recurring Revenue Stream

Moving away from one upfront revenue is a big step for traditional software companies, impeding the shift toward a SaaS business.

Parallels RAS helps ISVs convert their business into a SaaS model. Attract more customers with lower starting fees while building a recurring revenue stream through a subscription-based licensing model.

Lower Your Costs and Increase Your Margin

Although moving to a SaaS model boosts recurring revenue, operating as a service provider (SP) may reduce your gross margin due to additional costs such as infrastructure changes, application delivery solutions, third-party tools and general overheads.

Parallels RAS helps you lower your TCO and IT overhead while increasing your margins with its all-inclusive, cloud-ready, effortless VDI solution.

Shorten Your Learning Curve

Creating an IT environment to support a SaaS model can be challenging since it requires specific virtualization skills and training.

Parallels RAS is an easy-to-use solution that requires minimal knowledge to configure and manage the infrastructure. Moreover, full training on Parallels RAS is provided to all partners free of charge, reducing the learning curve.
