Hidden costs of traditional managed desktops

Like an iceberg, the largest cost of computing is rarely seen — the time and headaches required to support the workstations. Studies estimate this portion as 80% to 90% of the total cost of ownership.

Consider all the effort needed to fend off viruses, adware, spyware, and prevent hacking and tampering.

Consider the time spent installing patches, upgrades and updates. Consider the time spent testing and troubleshooting.

Consider the planning you pour into selecting software and the work involved in rolling it out. Userful can help you cut your costs and efforts.

Our customers tell us that Userful Desktop offers a better service while cutting their computing costs in half and creating IT time savings of up to 80%. With just one install Userful saves time for IT staff, administrators, and public service staff.

Reduce total cost of ownership:

  • Purchase hardware that comes pre-installed on a fully-loaded desktop
  • Save IT staff time with our comprehensive support package and guarantees
  • Free staff from babysitting and policing computers with the unbreakable desktop

Userful has a proven solution that frees staff for more important assignments and gives users a world-class public computing experience. We can help you achieve more with less.

Our support guarantee is simple: You won't ever need to worry about maintaining or fixing the software on your computers.

At Userful, support isn't just being there when something goes wrong. It's being proactive and continually updating and improving the system based on your requests and your patrons' needs.

Userful Desktop is easy to run. I've never had any formal tech training and am certainly not a computer expert. I sat down and read the manual, opened the box and I'd say we had it together in about 30 minutes. It made perfect sense to me. Nice and simple and easy.
