NEW Podcast - IGEL OS 11 Trade-Up Program with Simon Richards, CCO

In this episode, Douglas Brown interviews Simon Richards, Chief Customer Officer at IGEL Technology. Simon and Douglas discuss the new IGEL Trade-Up program, including topics such as what is it, who is it for, what needs to be done to trade up, how long it runs for, and much more.

About IGEL Trade Up Program

IGEL appreciates that customers running older versions of our operating system require increased support for newer cloud-delivered desktops and newer embedded technologies. IGEL OS 11 provides a secure workspace environment allowing access to Office 365, Teams, Citrix, VMware, Amazon WorkSpaces and Microsoft WVD.

To help those existing customers deliver newer platforms, support enhanced graphics and custom partitions, IGEL is offering a migration to IGEL OS 11 as part of a trade up program to all customers with active maintenance.

IGEL has simplified the process to include customers with or without the multimedia codec licenses (MMCP). Moving to IGEL OS 11 ensures our customers can deploy the latest version of IGEL solutions and can benefit from over 80+ integrated technologies.
