Citrix & enteo Software Inc. - Strong partners with a common goal


Citrix combines the advantages of central access to applications with the user-friendliness of a modern client/server architecture. However, this also means that quality assurance is the absolute priority when it comes to server administration. Server systems and applications in a Citrix environment therefore need careful installation and maintenance - a requirement much easier to realize with the help of NetInstall.

ThatÂ’s the reason why enteo and Citrix have been strategic partners since 2004. The two companies have developed a joint marketing strategy to make Citrix installations even more efficient. Now the partnership between the two companies has been taken one step further. As of January 2005, enteo is a Citrix Premier Alliance Partner. This means closer cooperation between our companies and also joint development. Below you find important details about this partnership.
