Propalms, Inc. Wholly Owned Subsidiary Focus Systems Pushes Further Into Cloud Computing

Updated: January 06, 2011

Propalms, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PRPM) is pleased to announce the Company's wholly owned subsidiary Focus Systems, a provider of Remote Desktop and VoIP phone systems to the SMB market, has completed an agreement to roll out its Remote Desktop solution with a prominent law firm located in Washington State. The remote environment provides for a suite of hosted applications, including proprietary systems specific to the law firm, as well as access security, data backup, client file archiving, and the integration of a paperless solution.

This latest contract is just another step in the wave of customers expected to explode into the cloud computing market over the next 5 years, and positions Focus Systems in the legal profession's vertical market. According to an article on December 28, 2009 in Barron's, the Gartner Group stated that "by 2014, 10% of the workforce will consist of employees using diskless PCs or stripped-down desktops managed remotely. In fact, it figures the number of 'virtual desktops' will climb to 70 million in 2014 from 368,000 last year."

While companies such as IBM focus on the large enterprise business and government sector, Focus Systems' market is targeted to the SMBs that make up a large part of the US workforce and can historically make business decisions and changes more quickly. In addition to reducing internal IT spending for the SMB, remote environments can "reduce operation costs by as much as 40% by extending the life of existing PCs, bolstering security, improving power savings and enhancing disaster recovery," according to the same article referenced above.

"The value proposition with cloud computing is phenomenal. People talk about going green, well it does not get any better than this for the IT world. We are not only reducing the cost associated with IT for our customers, but we are reducing power costs for them, shrinking the waste hitting our landfills from old PCs being tossed out, and are ultimately reducing the carbon footprint from commuting when the percentage of remote workers increases along with their productivity," stated Bill Wright, President of Focus Systems, Inc.
