Croft Gains ‘Remote Access’ to the IT Sector

IT specialist Croft Technology has further expanded its portfolio of services, becoming one of only a select number of organisations to be awarded gold partnership status by global IT manufacturer NetOp.

Croft is now one of only 20 UK companies fully accredited to sell and support NetOp’s range of remote control, teaching and security software. As the continuity and cost-effectiveness of IT operations are becoming increasingly critical factors within businesses, this partnership will benefit many of Crofts customers and future clients.

NetOp, a subsidiary of Danware, is an international industry leader in remote management. The software is designed to deal with unplanned events, providing a complete package for remote management of computers and networked devices as well as proactive maintenance of software and hardware. It is also used for remote system administration and helpdesk environments.

The gold partnership status enables Croft to offer customers a range of NetOp solutions, ensuring an efficient management of computers and networked devices as well as proactive maintenance of software and hardware inventory.

Croft will also provide a range of product support services to customers throughout the UK including onsite support, product aftercare and technical support.

Mick Keeble, Business Development Director at Croft, commented: “In the current business climate it is important that organisations have the tools and support necessary to manage and maintain their IT networks.

Croft already provides a wide range of services including project and programme management, strategic IT assessment, technical installation, configuration and peripheral support services. We are therefore delighted to become a gold partner and believe that NetOp solutions are a great tool in sustaining business continuity and providing remote access to employers wherever they are located.”

He added: “Using remote access software has a range of benefits such as performing complicated tasks with multiple users, simultaneous use, transferring files and documents, managing software and hardware inventory. Security is also a high priority within businesses. Therefore Croft also offers customers a number of unique features for authorisation and authentication, ensuring that there are no security risks and that all work and files are secure.”

Mike Kibblewhite Managing Director at NetOp commented: “NetOp are delighted to be working with such a well respected company such as Croft. Their commitment to delivering only the very best value add solutions to a loyal customer base is perfectly aligned with our own strategy.”

“With support from our local team and their high levels of expertise and professionalism we look forward to enjoying a long and mutually beneficial relationship,” he added.
