'I am very excited to reveal that on the 20th of July 2016, the Login Consultants business has been acquired by Orange through its Business Services entity'', says Eric-Jan van Leeuwen, Login VSI's captain. 'As many of you know, we’ve always had the ambition to make Login Consultants the main player in the European VDI / SBC services market. To reach this lofty goal, it needed to expand its footprint, professionalize its operations and grow its managed services practice.'
'In Orange Business Services - the “Login Consultants” of France - we found the perfect partner. They target the same niche market as we do and they have the same DNA so we’re a good cultural fit. Login Consultants will also benefit from the experience of Orange Business Services in successfully expanding a managed services business and the power of a respected brand. By combining forces, the new Orange Business Services becomes a major European force in the SBC/VDI services market.
The Orange Business Services acquisition allows Login VSI to dedicate 100 percent of our energies and resources on our core VDI lifecycle management software portfolio. The recent addition of Login AM brought automated configuration, deployment and change management functionality to our customers while bolstering our Login VSI testing and Login PI monitoring and reporting capabilities. By focusing exclusively on our software solutions, Login VSI will take the end user experience to the next level for our customers through constantly improving performance, stability and agility for virtualized desktops and workspaces.
This is only the beginning of a new and exciting story for Login VSI. Enterprise IT departments use Login VSI software products in all phases of their virtual desktop deployment—from planning to deployment to change management—for more predictable performance, higher availability and a more consistent end user experience. The world's leading virtualization and infrastructure vendors also use our technology as the defacto benchmark for VDI performance. We are on the verge of unprecedented growth and success.
I thank the Login Consultants team and its customers for the many years of successful partnership and wish all good things for the new combined Orange Business Services.
I’m truly thrilled to be a part of the next chapter for Login VSI, and I can’t wait to see what’s in store in the coming months!'
In 2002 Eric-Jan van Leeuwen founded Login Consultants together with Jeroen van de Kamp. Over the years many software tooling were created with the consultancy practice, whereas Flex Profiles, Automation Machine and Login VSI are the best known to the market. In 2013 he moved from Amsterdam to the Bay Area to open the Login VSI, Inc. office and build the North America market. In his free time, he enjoys long-distance cycling, both good and bad coffee and making NBA players feel height challenged.
