CloudShare Delivers 50 Percent Return on Investment

CloudShare Customers Realize Immediate ROI by Putting Their Critical Apps Into the Cloud

On Wednesday CloudShare announced that its customers are experiencing immediate return on investment (ROI) -- as much as 50 percent in some cases -- by migrating their IT-intensive business functions to the Cloud, including presales demos, proofs of concept, training, and IT operations. This shows that amidst a time of budget cuts and economic uncertainty, there are proven ways for companies to derive significant cost savings and achieve rapid ROI by leveraging Cloud Computing.

CloudShare provides a Cloud-based service that streamlines the lengthy evaluation process typically associated with enterprise software sales. The company has gained widespread recognition for its ability to replace local IT systems with full IT systems hosted on the Cloud, and allowing its customers to deliver any enterprise application as a service. This unique model lets companies engage with customers in a more powerful way, without the cost, time, and hassle of setting up on-site product evaluations.

"Ensuring robust, rapid, and seamless deployment of strategic applications as SaaS -- whether for sales demos, training, or IT operations -- is critical to organizations with IT-intensive processes. They are extremely expensive and time-consuming, and until now, companies had no viable alternatives," said Zvi Guterman, CEO of CloudShare. "We are pleased that our solution is helping our customers realize faster time-to-success and return on investment with their most critical enterprise applications."

CloudShare customer Virtual Graffiti, a global reseller with over 30,000 customers, leverages the technology to maximize pre-sales efforts and establish and maintain a predictable sales process. From a business standpoint, CloudShare is instrumental in significantly lowering Virtual Graffiti's engineering costs and eliminating all capital expenditures associated with lab environments for demos and evaluations.

"As our business grows, our sales team has more leads than ever and only so many hours in the day to chase them. Having the ability to offer a virtual evaluation saves us time and money, helps us to identify real prospects much earlier in the process, and lets us scale up as our business continues to grow," said Jonathan Mayer, Technical Account Manager, Virtual Graffiti. "With CloudShare, we can place solutions in front of potential customers in minutes instead of days, which gives us a great advantage over the competition."

CloudShare customers have seen benefits including, but not limited to:

  • 30 percent reduction in sales cycle time
  • 25 percent reduction in support costs and travel
  • 50 percent increase in sales team productivity
  • 50 percent increase in channel/reseller/VAR demos
  • 50 percent increase in efficiency for training purposes

CloudShare customer ROI is further validated in a recent webcast conducted by leading market research firm voke, inc., now available on-demand, on 'Virtual Lab Management: How to Justify the Purchase of CloudShare.'
