IGEL Technology posts 70 per cent A/NZ sales jump

Shift to Cloud and Australia's highly virtualised environment main drivers

The emergence of Cloud has helped German thin client vendor, IGEL Technology, record a 70 per cent increase in sales across A/NZ in 2014.

The strong growth follows the appointment of Marc Doehnert to the company in late 2013 as business development manager, as well as reflecting the rapid rise of Cloud computing in the region.

Sales growth crossed several market sectors, with particularly strong results in the banking and finance industry.

Solid results were also recorded in the not-for-profit sector, as well as government and education.

While business growth was strong for IGEL Technology throughout A/NZ region, the largest increases were experienced in New South Wales, according to a company statement.

The company has launched several new products over the past few months, which have broadened the potential market for thin client deployments.

The latest development, the UD6, features quad processors which allow the devices to be used for top-end graphics and video production.

Earlier in 2014 the company released Café Wireless, an update which allows notebook thin clients the freedom of logging onto a WLAN anywhere, something that was previously very limited with thin client solutions.

In July, IGEL also released the W7+ range of thin clients, designed to handle the latest unified communications and multimedia applications. The device offers more memory to meet the emerging needs of businesses using Windows-based thin clients, with an 8GB flash drive.

IGEL business development manager, A/NZ, Marc Doehnert, said the company had been innovative and developed products which were really meeting business demand in the highly virtualised local markets.

"More people are looking to Cloud computing solutions as a means of saving overheads and simplifying their IT environments, and that is really reflected in the strong growth we have experienced,” he said.

International growth has also been strong for the company, with an international rate of growth sitting at about 30 per cent.

On the back of these figures, the company is looking to expand its local team by employing a pre-sales engineer.
