Jetro Platforms has appointed MPA Systems as local distributor of its CockpIT centralised applications deployment and management software platform. It will be aimed as a price play at Citrix users.
MPA managing director, Guy Goodman, said he had approached Jetro at the end of last year. The deal was finalised at CeBit Germany in mid-March.
"I approached [Jetro Asia-Pacific managing director] Michael Abel and, after several conversations, it was clear that we fitted quite well," Good man said. "There was also a basic fit of personalities."
"I think a lot of resellers will be interested in carrying it. There's a gap where people can't afford Citrix licensing and don't need everything that it provides."
