“The pandemic forced every enterprise to up-level their IT infrastructures to allow remote working at a scale that had never been seen historically. This pace added stress on IT departments who are the first line of defense for making the company’s technology stack work correctly,” said Andy Whiteside, XenTegra CEO and President. “By offering access to ControlUp’s DEX management platform, our customers can scale their IT management tools quickly while keeping employees productive and happy and the bottom line positive.”

The industry analyst firm also predicts that 80 percent of organizations will use accessibility as a key criterion for workplace technology investments. “Every organization today needs to provide its remote workforce with tools that allow for frictionless communications and productivity without completely ripping apart and replacing the current IT stack,” said Amir Harel, Senior Vice President of Sales, ControlUp. “By providing our partners the ability to sell our comprehensive DEX management platform, we’re ensuring more companies can proactively monitor and support their remote and hybrid workforces while increasing employee satisfaction and productivity. As a testament to how much we value our reseller partnerships, we have tripled the amount of marketing funding paid directly to partners while adding significant investments to run and build our partner campaigns and program, and doubling the number of team members dedicated to the program.

IT dark zones are now easily eliminated because everyone now has much-needed visibility into technology systems so they can solve problems before they are reported.
