Maintaining a stable Citrix environment
Chandler Macleod’s initial goal was to minimise the number of network servers in its Citrix environment. Because DesktopNow was so effective in helping IT fully utilise each server, the company has reduced its server count by 25 percent.

Chandler Macleod can control the users and devices that have access to specific applications and avoid purchasing excessive licences.
Improve service quality
