IndependenceIT, a workspace automation software platform provider that allows IT departments, service providers and ISVs to easily deliver workspaces, applications and data from any cloud infrastructure, has announced a partnership success with Ease Technologies, Inc., a managed service provider. Since implementing IndependenceIT’s software platform in 2014 and introducing its Ease Cloud Workspace® service, the company has built a robust Workspace-as-a-Service solution that leverages the software for access to applications, desktops, data, and complete cloud workspaces.

Headquartered in Columbia, Maryland, Ease Technologies serves leading corporations, educational institutions, law firms, accounting practices, membership-based organizations, healthcare organizations, and many small businesses. In addition to cloud workspace services, the company’s experience includes developing solutions in application and content management, Web strategy and design, data management, managed services, network services, and staffing.  Clients include firms such as Apple Computer, Comcast, C-SPAN, Fairfax County Government, Merck, Georgetown University as well as other well-known organizations. Ease Technologies has received many awards of distinction over the last two decades and aligns with some of the fastest growing tech firms in the country.

Prior to entering the Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) market, Ease Technologies had reviewed the merits of several WaaS software platforms, finally choosing IndependenceIT because of the high degree of automation built into Cloud Workspace Suite software. The easy to deploy and manage software has been deployed across several of its data center locations, hosted by U.S. Signal, an industry-leading network and cloud-hosting provider. Since receiving expert led training by IndependenceIT, Ease Technologies easily manages their entire workspace-as-a-service environment from a central control plane which has resulted in significant management time savings. Using Cloud Workspace Suite, the company serves a growing number of end-customers, especially in the education, legal, and accounting verticals who enjoy the additional productivity and efficiency the technology provides.

Cloud Workspace Suite is the only Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) software to offer true workspace automation to greatly reduce deployment time and management complexity, regardless of the WaaS platform preferred by the IT service provider. The software can be used as a standalone solution, or to provide a layer of automation and control that simplifies third-party WaaS software. The technology is used by IT service providers such as Ease Technologies, who deliver workspace services to their end-customers. The solution delivers an exceptional return on investment with savings through automation greatly reducing IT overhead.

“Because outsourcing of the IT workspace allows users to focus on what they do best, it is viewed as an imperative for those challenged with performing a technology refresh of on-premises computing infrastructure,” said Jason Shirdon, VP, Operations, Ease Technologies. “Technology solutions that enable greater agility and access are critical for businesses in distributed environments or where IT mobility is a must. As the software engine behind our services, Cloud Workspace Suite has made the entire process of workspace deployment and management easy, allowing us to focus on the customer experience. As a result, Ease Cloud Workspace is by far our most popular service option.”

“Cloud Workspace Suite is a powerful WaaS automation platform for partners such as Ease Technologies as it provides a high level of systems management automation and policy based management which greatly simplifies solution delivery,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “The ability to provision application, workspace, and SaaS delivery from a centralized control plane eliminates hundreds of hours of management time per year, substantially reducing complexity and the total cost of ownership. IT service providers taking advantage of this are able to consolidate operations for easy procurement, management, and integration to optimize the administrator experience.”
