With IronSuite, companies can now enjoy the rich features of an advanced service management and IT asset management solution, for a much more affordable price. With its Open Source platform, IronSuite makes it easy for any company to implement a flexible and complete service and IT management service within its existing IT infrastructure with minimal interruption and rapid turn-key delivery.

“The technology is simply breath taking, rapid to implement and its flexibility adds real options to a market that has been long ignored by large vendors. Using open-source has massive advantages and continues to deliver the broadest platform support along with code stability that cannot be matched”, says Deep Birring, CTO of Irontouch.

The small to medium business market is dis-advantaged today in its ability to get the flexibility they need in IT asset management, at an affordable price. IronSuite is the answer to that dilemma by giving them the features they need with a return on investment that can be easily justified,” commented Jon Saverton, Global Head of Sales at Irontouch.

In industry after industry, we’ve helped forward thinking enterprises realize results, achieve new levels of customer service and customer satisfaction, while providing the flexibility they need at a cost that is not prohibitive,” said Gaurav Parakh, VP of international Business Development at Mandriva SA.
