WaaS Provider CloudJumper Trumpets 2016 Successes

By Paula Bernier

Workspace as a service platform company CloudJumper is using the end of the year timing to trumpet its 2016 successes. During this year, the company reports, it experienced 80 percent year-over-year revenue growth, grew its base of channel partners to 1,000, and saw its partner-deployed end user seats increase 59 percent.

WaaS is a new category through which companies like CloudJumper and their partners outfit businesses with cloud services that enable employees to connect to their work applications wherever they are and through desktops, laptops, smartphones, and tablets. The global WaaS market was worth $7.47 billion in 2015 and is poised to reach $18.37 billion by 2022, according to Transparency Research, which says that workspace as a service solutions aid in boosting the productivity of the employees, as they can access their desktops as well as all of the critical data and applications, regardless of location.

The Emergence of Workplace as a Service will be the subject of a session at MSP Expo, which will be co-located with ITEXPO. CloudJumper’s Chief Sales Officer Max Pruger will present this session on Feb. 9 at 2 p.m. in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The CloudJumper WaaS solution is called nWorkSpace. Others in the WaaS, or virtual desktop infrastructure, arena include Amazon, Citrix, Colt, Econocom, Getronics, Microsoft, Independence IT, Tech Mahindra, Unisys, and VMware, according to Markets and Markets.

CloudJumper recently introduced a new CloudJumper Channel Partner program, which includes a partner portal with access to controls that simplify management and allow for Web-based quoting and ordering. Key features include partner and customer analytics and monitoring, support integration with on-demand access to existing items and the ability to open new items, financial reporting with on-demand access to detailed billing information, service discounting based on account size, pricing estimates for new accounts, onboarding support, and white label billing.

“CloudJumper partners have responded favorably to our comprehensive and easy-to-integrate platform as it speeds the journey for partners and customers toward the cloud,” JD Helms, president of CloudJumper, said in a statement announcing its gains this year. “With our unique brand of integration, we are expanding the window of opportunity to all of our partners and we expect to see robust sales performance throughout 2017.”
