Many people have asked, “Why did you start Xuropa?” And a recent blog post by Harry Gries got me to thinking beyond the proverbial napkin anecdote (it really was a napkin!).
Hassle free and immediate access to the most sophisticated software on the planet! That is Xuropa.
We want to eliminate the bottlenecks and roadblocks currently between the user and the software - downloads, installation, license agreements, license keys, even geography and time zones - they all have to go!
For the user, it’s all about saving time. Without Xuropa, to learn or evaluate new software requires a long and drawn out process involving management, IT, the legal department, sales guys, sales or applications engineers…a lot of leg work and hassle on top of their regular “day job”.
With Xuropa, they can sign in, kick off a session, and immediately have access to some of the most powerful software in the world. Simple and quick.
The benefit to vendors is just as compelling - 24/7 access to more potential customers while reducing costs and using fewer resources.
Without Xuropa, a vendor currently has to ship out hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of expertise with the software as part of the sales process. Simple prospecting takes tremendous resources and valuable time. The cost is even greater when dealing with global customers in such growing economies like India, China, or Eastern Europe. Alternatively, they’re shipping CDROM’s or asking their prospects to download huge evaluation versions of their software - an extremely frustrating exercise for the user, and piracy prone for the vendor.
What vendors really need is a platform that helps accurately identify interested buyers/users and quickly and securely delivers their software to those users for trials and evaluations. With Xuropa, vendors ensure that prospects around the world and around the clock get their hands on their product immediately in a completely secure environment.
Xuropa does this by making software available on public or private clouds within a secure and automated web-based application. The Xuropa Application results in Zero IT overhead, complete access control, with a set of analytics and marketing tools to engage with the user remotely and help them help themselves through the process.
In short, Xuropa is a web-based application that delivers enterprise software to users via the cloud - Your Software in the Cloud. Simple to use, easy to set up, highly automated, and secure.
Consistently, our customers tell us that the Xuropa Platform enables them to do more with less. Everyone is looking to grow markets with the same resources, or service the same customers with fewer resources - or both. And that’s what Xuropa enables.
Along those lines, as we’re all working our way out of the Great Recession, we know that companies have been very creative in surviving and even thriving. We’d like to hear your ideas and offer a prize for some of the “best”.
