ConverterTechnology Now Supports Full Desktop Deployments for Small- to Medium-Sized Businesses and the Enterprise Migrating to Windows 8 and Office 2013

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) NASHUA, NH -- (Marketwire) -- 11/13/12 -- ConverterTechnology, provider of software and services to help enterprises capitalize on the benefits of Microsoft Office 2013 and Windows 8 without the migration risks of data corruption, announces it extends its migration support beyond file conversion to include application migration capabilities to accelerate deployment time for small- and medium-sized businesses and enterprise organizations.


Application compatibility issues present some of the greatest hurdles to achieving a timely and effective migration to newer versions of Windows and Microsoft Office. In time for the release of Microsoft Office 2013 and Windows 8, ConverterTechnology, through a channel partnership with Quest Software, Inc. (now part of Dell), helps customers reduce the cost, time, and risk associated with upgrading their desktops to the latest Microsoft Office and Windows software, while offering application and file compatibly assessment and remediation through the entire conversion process.

ConverterTechnology customers have access to a comprehensive suite of solutions that include a variety of Quest software solutions, including Quest Asset Manager, MSI Studio, and ChangeBASE, which complement ConverterTechnology's full desktop deployment solutions. ConverterTechnology customers undertaking Microsoft Office or Windows upgrades can expand ConverterTechnology's file conversion capabilities with greater risk mitigation that includes compatibility assessments of applications across desktop, server, virtual, and web application estates. Customers can automate application testing and remediation, application packaging, and application virtualization conversion to accelerate readiness by finding and fixing compatibility issues in minutes.

"The Quest solutions enhance ConverterTechnology's value proposition of providing a seamless upgrade solution for customers moving to Windows 7/8 and Office 2010/2013," said Jeff LaBombard, global alliance manager, ConverterTechnology. "Being able to offer our clients the ability to get their applications up and running quickly with minimal manual effort in a way that effectively reduces the time and risk of ongoing management associated with major Microsoft upgrades is important to maintaining high levels of customer satisfaction. ConverterTechnology and its OfficeConverter suite of tools have since successfully migrated millions of users from older Office platforms to newer ones, coupled with our work implementing and assisting Fortune 500 companies with the Quest products during Microsoft migrations, we are well positioned to support enterprise and small- to medium-sized upgrade efforts." IT administrators and business unit managers understand that the most important aspect of any technology rollout is its impact on end-user productivity. As more companies seek to migrate to newer versions of Microsoft Office and Windows, ConverterTechnology and Quest empower organizations from enterprise-level to small- and medium-sized companies to mitigate risks throughout the entire migration effort by streamlining, planning, executing, and reporting on the upgrade efforts of both operating systems and applications. This allows IT to play a strategic role in the migration effort that will yield high dividends in terms of cost savings, productivity, and end-user satisfaction. LaBombard notes, "For the SMB market, ConverterTechnology now brings enterprise-proven technology at an affordable price." "ConverterTechnology's customer-centric approach is the key to their ongoing success in migrating organizations of all sizes to newer versions of Microsoft Office and Windows," says Michael Sotnick, vice president of worldwide channels and alliances for Quest Software. "We're pleased to work with ConverterTechnology to further extend their core migration offerings with our complementary ChangeBase solution, which enables ConverterTechnology to help customers clear major application compatibility hurdles." Together, ConverterTechnology and Quest automate many of the labor-intensive application and file testing and conversion functions associated with large-scale migrations, so the process will occur more quickly and with a higher level of reliability and accuracy. By quickly identifying files and applications requiring testing and remediation, ConverterTechnology's solutions can find and fix problems -- saving time and money. With the addition of solutions from Quest, ConverterTechnology customers gain the added benefit of an experienced implementation partner, while helping them move seamlessly to newer versions of Windows and Office.
